Dr. Eric Poznyansky is an Invisalign provider, and he has been recognized by Invisalign for his growing patient base and expertise in the field. Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners that are created for you and only you. The alignment trays are made of comfortable, smooth, invisible plastic that is worn over the teeth. When the aligners are worn, the teeth will gently and gradually shift into place. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You simply pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two-three weeks, until your treatment is complete and you achieve the confident smile that you have always wanted. The best part about the whole process is that most people will not know you are straightening your teeth. You could be whitening your teeth at the same time as well using same aligners.

Invisalign: The Dental Straightener That Is Replacing Braces

Invisalign dental aligners are an alternative to braces which are less painful and more cosmetically appealing. They are made from a mailable thermoplastic and are similar in appearance to teeth whitening trays.

Why Invisalign?

Invisalign aligners are made from a smooth and comfortable plastic that is BPA free and hypoallergenic. The trays are clear and shaped like teeth so as to look much more natural than any other dental straighteners. Most importantly, they apply pressure evenly across the surface of each tooth. This drastically improves the comfort of wearing them as well as lessening the chance of damage to the enamel or the gums. Unlike with braces, an Invisalign user will not have their gums or inner cheeks injured by otherwise mild accidental impacts to the face or jaw. Invisalign retainers are soft and smooth with no sharp or abrasive surfaces.

Comfort & Convenience

Many people ask if Invisalign aligners cause any pain. Physicians report that about half of their Invisalign patients report minor discomfort and a small amount describe the sensation as mild pain.

Unfortunately, it is very difficult to change the arraignment of a person’s teeth without at least some mild discomfort.

What dentists and Invisalign providers do report regularly, however, is that their Invisalign patients complain far less than do those with traditional braces installed. Recall that conventional braces are made from often sharp metal that is glued to the teeth and use springs and wire to create the pressure that changes the shape of the dentition. The wire which transmits the pressure across the whole set of braces will usually jab into the back of the patient’s cheek shortly before adjustments are needed. Worse, braces do not come out without medical intervention, and can injure the user’s mouth if the face is bumped accidentally.

How Invisalign Works

Each set of aligner trays makes subtle changes in the arraignment of your teeth, just as braces would do. Once the trays you are currently using have moved your teeth as far as they can, you will be fitted with another set which will move your teeth even closer to your ultimate goal of straight and beautiful teeth.

The Invisalign Treatment Plan

Once you speak with an Invisalign trained provider you and your doctor will determine whether or not Invisalign is right for you. Your doctor will take X-rays of your teeth from which to form the mold your Invisalign trays.

After you receive your first set of custom aligners you should wear them for between 20 and 22 hours each day until your doctor determines that it is time for you to be fitted with a new pair. You will need to have regular checkups to monitor the progress of your dental alignment.

Invisalign for Adults and Teens

All Invisalign users benefit from the practical invisibility of these innovative aligners, but no one appreciates it more than teens. With all the social pressure teens are under to fit in and make friends, very little could do more to alleviate their social anxiety than to save them the need to use ugly, uncomfortable and embarrassing dental appliances that they will have to live with for months or years.

Adults, while possessed of greater confidence, also appreciate the ability to improve their teeth and appearance without resorting to the installment of distracting and uncomfortable braces.
