Professionals Offering Invisalign® Treatment in Islip, NY  

Traditional braces are an effective method to straighten your smile. However, if you’re hesitant to get orthodontic treatment due to the appearance of metal braces, there’s an excellent alternative: Invisalign® clear aligners. Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible, allowing you to get the smile of your dreams without anyone noticing. Ocean Blue Orthodontics is proud to be an Invisalign dentist serving Islip, New York, and our skilled team would be happy to perform your evaluation to see if this treatment option is right for your unique case. 

The Benefits of Invisalign 

Invisalign is a convenient alternative to traditional metal braces. This treatment option provides the following benefits: 

  • Comfort – Since Invisalign treatment consists of smooth plastic aligners and doesn’t have brackets or wires, you won’t experience the chafing and rawness that tend to occur with traditional braces. 
  • Discretion – Invisalign is even more discreet than clear braces—no one will notice that you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. 
  • Freedom to eat and drink – Traditional braces require that you avoid specific foods (such as crunchy, sticky, or hard foods) to prevent damage to the brackets. However, you can remove your Invisalign trays and eat and drink what you want! 
  • Easier to care for your teeth – Since brackets trap food particles and bacteria, traditional braces require extra care and tools to keep them clean. This also makes it more difficult to floss. With Invisalign, however, you can remove your trays and brush and floss normally, making it easier to prevent cavities and tooth decay. 

How Does Invisalign Work? 

Our team will perform an evaluation to determine if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign. Most patients who opt for Invisalign have mild to moderate orthodontic issues—if you have severe misalignment or other problems, you may have to undergo treatment with traditional braces.  

Once we confirm that Invisalign is right for you, we will take a digital, 3D model of your teeth and send impressions to Invisalign’s lab to create a custom set of aligners tailored to you. Each aligner represents a point along your treatment path, and the number of aligners you will need depends on your unique orthodontic case. You may receive as few as 10 or up to 30 aligners.  

As you replace each aligner, your teeth gradually move into their proper alignment. You’ll wear each aligner for about two weeks, and you can expect to visit our office approximately once every six weeks to check your progress.
