Invisalign® Clear Aligners

At Merchant Square Dental, our dentists and team are providers for Invisalign® clear aligners in Warwick, New York. The Invisalign system is the perfect solution for adults and older teens who want to straighten their smiles without the restrictions of metal braces.

Invisalign® aligners are a great choice for patients who are searching for a more discreet orthodontic treatment option for straightening their smile. Rather than using metal brackets and wires like traditional braces, the Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made, computer-generated plastic aligners to straighten teeth. Each set of aligners is designed to make small changes to the alignment of the teeth. As you switch sets of aligners about every two weeks, your teeth will gradually and gently move to their proper positions. You will also visit our office on a regular basis during treatment to make certain that your smile is progressing as planned.

In general, Invisalign aligners can be used to treat the same orthodontic issues that are normally treated with braces. Our dentists may recommend Invisalign treatment to correct:

Crowded teeth
Crooked teeth
Gapped and spaced teeth
Certain problems with the bite, such as an overbite, open bite, underbite or crossbite
During your initial visit, we will determine whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign treatment. This treatment is often a good choice for adult patients and others who are interested in a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment. In addition to being discreet, Invisalign aligners are very comfortable because they are custom made from smooth, thin plastic. The aligners are removable as well, which allows you to easily remove them as needed to eat, brush and floss. We welcome you to call or visit us today to learn more about Invisalign clear aligners.

Invisalign is suitable for teenagers and adults with mild to moderate orthodontic issues, including crowded teeth, gaps between teeth, overbites, underbites, and crossbites. Your dentist or orthodontist can determine if Invisalign is right for you after a comprehensive evaluation.

For optimal results, Invisalign aligners should be worn for 20 to 22 hours per day, removing them only for eating, drinking (except for water), brushing, and flossing.
