Invisalign New York NY

If the mere mention of orthodontics triggers images of bulky metal brackets and wires overtaking your smile, you are not alone. Many patients falsely assume that orthodontic treatment means wearing traditional braces. However, modern orthodontics offers a full range of options to straighten teeth. In fact, there is one solution that is particularly popular among adult patients – Invisalign! Invisalign addresses all the drawbacks of traditional metal braces so that adults can attain the straight and beautiful smile they deserve without hesitation.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign is an innovative orthodontic treatment option that uses a series of clear aligners to fix teeth that are crooked, overlapped, gapped, misaligned or crowded. The aligners are customized to fit each patient’s smile and are changed out every 2-3 weeks to help your teeth gradually move into ideal position. Invisalign can even be used to address mild to moderate under-bites, crossbites and over-bites.

Top Reasons Why Invisalign is Perfect for Adults

There are many reasons why adults prefer Invisalign over traditional metal braces. In general, Invisalign is ranked superior in comfort, discretion and convenience. Finally, adults have an orthodontic treatment option to fit their lifestyle and here’s why:

#1 A Secret Solution that Protects Your Self-Confidence
A primary benefit of Invisalign is that it is virtually invisible to others. The clear smooth design is the perfect means to get the straight teeth you’ve always wanted, while disguising the process along the way. This is ideal for all types of adults, including corporate professionals, public figures, busy moms and more. Whether you never got the braces you needed as a child or your teeth have migrated out of position later in life, most adults value the importance of keeping their orthodontic treatment as discreet as possible. Invisalign is highly effective at straightening your smile without threatening your appearance and self-esteem.

#2 The Freedom of Removability
When you get Invisalign, you are not locked into your orthodontic appliance until your treatment is complete. Unlike braces, your aligners can be easily removed to eat, brush and floss. This helps adults breathe easier knowing that they don’t have to avoid certain foods and they can take out their Invisalign for special events if they choose. The ability to clean your teeth without the obstacle of braces is also a major perk, and many patients report whiter teeth and healthier gums after Invisalign compared to traditional braces. To be effective, Invisalign should be worn 22 hours out of the day. If the thought of being “stuck” in orthodontics causes you stress, you may want to consider a removable option with Invisalign.

#3 Orthodontics You Have Time For
Traditional braces often require frequent office visits to tighten wires and monitor patient progress. This demands time that many adults simply don’t have. If your schedule is packed with work meetings, social events and family obligations, you’ll appreciate the minimal office time that Invisalign involves. In most cases, you’ll only need to see your Invisalign provider every 4-6 six weeks. Overall, Invisalign is a less-hassle solution with maximum convenience for the average adult.

Why Straight Teeth Matter

If you are still hesitant to invest in orthodontics after hearing these Invisalign benefits, you should realize the importance of straight teeth. A straight and well-aligned smile offers much more than an improved appearance. When teeth are in their proper position, your bite is more comfortable and less strain is put on your jaw joint (or TMJ). In addition, your teeth are easier to keep clean when they are straighter because plaque and food debris have less spaces to hide. This can help patients avoid frequent cavities, gum disease and other oral health problems that can affect your wallet and your overall health!

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!!!
