Dr. Jacob Wallach is a Nyack Invisalign® dentist, giving teens and adults an alternative orthodontic treatment to traditional metal braces.
Invisalign is the most popular brand of invisible braces. This innovative system uses a series of removable clear aligners to gently straighten teeth. Invisalign is well suited for patients who need mild to moderate orthodontic care.
Invisalign may be used to treat a variety of conditions including:
- Tooth crowding
- Spaces between teeth
- Narrow tooth arches
- Underbite or overbite
Why Choose Invisalign?
Invisalign vs. Metal Braces
There are many reasons why Nyack area patients prefer Invisalign invisible braces vs. metal braces. One of the primary reasons is that Invisalign aligners are so clear that they’re virtually invisible.
Another advantage of invisible braces vs. metal braces is that they promote better tooth and gum health. Because they are removable, patients can maintain their standard oral hygiene routine. With metal braces, food and plaque can become trapped around brackets. This is not an issue with Invisalign.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Dr. Wallach will design custom fit aligners for your Invisalign therapy. First, we will take impressions of your teeth and send them to Invisalign. Using sophisticated software and 3D modeling, they will create custom aligners from an ultra-thin, ultra-clear plastic material.
Invisalign treatment is a quick and convenient treatment when compared to traditional metal braces. You will receive a series of aligners to be worn every day, changing them to the next set every two weeks. Most patients complete treatment in 6 – 12 months.
With Invisalign, you don’t need to visit an orthodontist. You will come to Dr. Wallach’s Nyack dental office for routine checkups throughout your treatment.
