Clear Aligners New York NY

Not willing to wear metal brackets and wires as an adult? You are not alone. Fortunately, modern orthodontics offers a breakthrough solution for those who want to straighten their smile without sacrificing their lifestyle or self-esteem in the process. Invisalign is a clear aligner therapy that is proven to correct a number of common orthodontic issues, ranging from overbites, crossbites and under bites to crowded teeth, gapped teeth and more. Best of all, Invisalign relies on a clear, removable appliance instead of fixed metal brackets and wires.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign treatment includes a series of clear custom aligner trays that gently move your teeth into ideal position over time. Typically, patients change out their aligners every two weeks, or as instructed by their provider. Invisalign is known for its remarkable advantages over traditional metal braces, especially when it comes to busy adults.

Here are some leading reasons why more and more adults are opting for Invisalign to achieve the straight and healthy smile they have always wanted:

#1 Discreet
With Invisalign, you can dismiss that embarrassing thought of wearing a mouth full of bulky metal brackets to get straight teeth. This advanced orthodontic technology does not use wires, brackets or bands to straighten your teeth. Instead, you will retain your confidence by wearing a clear aligner tray that others won’t even notice. This is a significant benefit for many adults who prefer not to want to wear braces in professional and social situations, as a mouth of metal can be a real threat to your career and self-esteem.

#2 Comfort
Metal braces are undoubtedly effective, but they are often associated with uncomfortable adjustments and sore spots on your gums and cheek from wire and bracket irritation. Rest assured that Invisalign is just as effective as metal braces yet made of thin, smooth plastic so that the risk for irritation and soreness is virtually eliminated. There is a temporary adjustment period as patients learn to talk with their new aligners, but the overall comfort level is far superior compared to metal braces.

#3 Convenience
Patients love the added convenience that Invisalign provides. Unlike traditional braces, you can remove your Invisalign trays for eating, brushing and flossing. This allows you to eat the foods you love while undergoing orthodontic correction and avoid the restrictions (like candy, nuts and popcorn) that traditional braces demand.

In addition, some patients remove them for brief periods of time, such as during a work presentation or special date, so that they can feel completely confident doing what they need to do. As long as you wear your aligners 20-22 hours out of the day, you can expect to get the results you desire.

#4 Healthier Smile
Metal braces and wires can become a real obstacle when cleaning your teeth and gums. This leads to puffy gums (gingivitis), discoloration, bad breath and cavities in many patients. With Invisalign, you can remove your aligners to brush and floss each night, which means you can keep your mouth is top health during orthodontic treatment!

VERY PLEASANT AND LOOKING FORWARD TO MY NEXT VISIT! This dental office was bright and warm from the moment I walked in. The young ladies there were friendly and very pleasant. They offered me a choice of beverage while explaining the online form enrollment process. My xray technician was very pleasant and went through a set of 18(!) x-rays using this new low-radiation equipment. It was a very painless process that went very quickly considering what it would normally take using the old way of taking individual bite-wings. Dr. Vazquez was also very pleasant as she patiently explained her observations of my x-rays.Afterward I sat down for my cleaning with Marcielle (spelling ?) - who was another round of pleasant service as she cleaned and polished my teeth. NO PAIN AT ALL! :) This office has a happy bright orange color theme which immediately adds to the very comforting and cheerful ambiance all around. All I can say is I highly recommend the staff here - they are so ready to deliver service with a smile!

When I stepped foot into the door at this dental office I was terrified because of my previous experiences in other dental offices. I had no choice but to come and get my teeth fixed so I made an appointment. I was warmly welcomed at the front desk and when I told the front desk how terrified I was of being there it was amazing how nice and supportive the ladies were. When I went in for x-rays the technician was amazing as she spoke to me and made me smile. The hygienist was amazing as she had to work hard to clean my teeth and she made me feel so comfortable and I had literally no fear what s ever. My fear was gone. As I saw the dentist I was amazed at her knowledge and he comfort and patience as she worked on me and advised me as to what I needed. I love this place and my fear of dentists is actually gone to the point that I already made two appointments for the rest of the work to be done. Thank you so much for making me feel so comfortable and part of your family as I was surrounded with people who actually cared about me and my feelings and who made me feel better. Thank you soooooooo much.

Wow just started about 2 weeks ago and I must tell you that my experience was pleasant. I know how could this be possible. They were professional and attentive. The wait time is so short I could not believe it. They are knowledgeable and really work with you and your situation. Not looking to make that buck like so many others I have been to. I felt comfortable which has never been the case. The place is clean and covers a lot of dental work under one roof. I must say it is the best place I have been in years. They get my vote and I will be returning to continue my needed work !!

I had an appointment with Dr. Concencion and got feedback on why I was there, which was for my concern about a tooth that had trauma to it years ago. I got a full exam that included full mouth x-rays and a cleaning. The receptionists, x-ray technician, dental hygienist, and dentist were all very friendly and pleasant to be around. It was really the most welcoming and comforting experience I've ever had at a dentist's office. I found it a little strange that I have to schedule a consultation with the endodontist to discuss my tooth that I am concerned about, but then again I don't know much about these things and actually do trust that they were being genuine about the medical advice I was given (which is usually not my feeling as a new patient at a dentist's office).

I first went to Group Health Dental at the beginning of 2015 for a root canal. My original dentist wanted to only do certain procedures because he didn't feel it was worth it financially since I have union coverage. He actually told me this to my face. He left me in tremendous pain and I even had to demand antibiotics. I was referred to Group Health by someone else but they were not able to help me because I was too swollen and they did not have an oral surgeon. I went elsewhere to have the tooth extracted since the infection was too severe for the tooth to be saved. Months later, I still needed work since I since never went back to the original dentist. I decided to take a chance with Group Health Dental and I am so glad I did. I walked in the door terrified from my experiences elsewhere but EVERYONE, from the young ladies at reception, the dental hygenist, exray technician, root canal specialist, dentist, his assistant and even the young ladies taking your payment made it an amazing experience for me. Pleasant, caring, gentle and professional people in a clean and pleasing atmosphere. I purposefully waited until all the work was done and waited an additional week to make sure the new work wasn't bothering me to write this review. If I could give them ten stars, I would. Group Health Dental rocks!!! :-) :-) :-)

I was one of those people that dreaded going to the dentist, but after I started going to Group Health Dental in Midtown, I met Dr. Benito and everything changed. Now I am one of those people who actually looks forward to her dentist appointments. He and his assistant have rake in the street which causes both of them to always be in a great mood and they always are happy to see you. He always makes me laugh, and I mean always. Dr. Bonito and Esmira ( his assistant) are wonderful. they always make sure you're completely satisfied with their work, they're very attentive and always make time to see you when you have an emergency or need to speak with them. Now going to the dentist is one of those things that I post about on Facebook because I always come back with a new story or a new joke to tell after my visit to Dr. Benito and Esmira. If you want to have a dentist that feels more like visiting a friend than getting work done, you need to try Dr. Benito. #mydentistisbetterthanyours!!!
