Orthodontic Services from North Island Dental Arts
At our Hyde Park practice, Dr. Amit Dhar, DDS, is committed to helping you achieve a smile that is beautiful and healthy. For teens and adults this sometimes means that orthodontic procedures are required, in other words, braces. Braces will correct an overbite or underbite, realign misaligned teeth, and create a uniform smile.
Traditional metal braces, however, are not the only option to an improved smile, and our dental team in New York offers alternatives to traditional braces, options for corrective dentistry that is minimally invasive and pleasing to the eye. We offer cosmetic orthodontic options for patients who want to improve their smile without compromising aesthetics with wires and metal during treatment.
With aligners, it?s important that you remove them during meals and before you brush your teeth. They are also more comfortable as they gently shift teeth into the desired place. It?s important to note that clear dental alignments aren?t right for everyone. At North Island Dental Arts, Dr. Dhar is a caring provider of clear brace options, and works with his patients to decide which orthodontics treatment is best for their smile goals.
We offer following cosmetic orthodontic options:
These clear aligners were introduced in 1999 and have become a large part of orthodontic treatment ever since. By taking X-rays, impressions, and pictures, a 3D image of your mouth will be created and then used to design the aligners. The aligners are given to you and must be switched out every few weeks to advance your orthodontic treatment. As the original invisible braces alternative, they are proven to realign your teeth while remaining perfectly clear. Invisalign® is a global company serving patients worldwide, which speaks to the product's effectiveness.
Another option for your clear braces, these are a great alternative to metal braces. This company was founded in 2006, so it?s a relatively newer option but no less effective. It was started in America and predominantly stays in the American Orthodontic markets. It functions similarly to Invisalign® with the design of aligners and how they must be switched out every two weeks.
Six Month Smiles:
Closer to the form of traditional braces, Six Month Smiles offers products that can treat tooth adjustment within a six month range. These are braces with a tooth-colored wire and clear brackets that blend into your smile like natural tooth camouflage. Although not as invisible as Invisalign® or ClearCorrect, these are a proven short-term treatment procedure for your smile.
