Crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth detract from the harmony and balance of your smile. Even if they’re only minor misalignments, you may feel that they’re the thing people see first when they meet you.
Aside from aesthetic concerns, however, misaligned teeth wear faster and fracture more often. This damage occurs slowly, usually over several years.
Another problem is that it can be difficult or impossible to get the floss in between crowded teeth, which makes adequate oral hygiene a challenge. When you can’t brush and floss all surfaces of your teeth, you’re at increased risk for cavities and gum disease.
Straightening your teeth with Invisalign enhances your appearance and helps support optimal oral health. Please call us to learn more about Invisalign clear braces at our Northport, NY dental office.
Invisalign clear braces use an innovative orthodontic concept and technique to move teeth. As Dr. Rubin plans your treatment, he uses computer simulation to predict the progressive movements needed to align your teeth properly.
An Invisalign lab uses this treatment plan to fabricate several sets of clear plastic aligners. You’ll wear one set of aligners for two weeks then switch them out and move to the next set of aligners in the series. Your teeth are incrementally moved in this way until we achieve the desired result.
Committing to fixing misaligned teeth is a significant step towards your overall health. Invisalign gives adults and older teens the ability to improve teeth alignment and bite issues with clear, removable aligner trays. It’s no wonder Invisalign in Northport, NY is such a popular treatment!

Traditional bracket and wire braces are typically recommended for children and for adults with more severe tooth misalignment or bite problems. But if you want to make a cosmetic improvement to your smile by straightening crooked or crowded teeth, Invisalign is a great alternative.
Invisalign clear braces at our Northport, NY dental office have helped many adults who thought their crooked teeth were a lost cause. If you would like to see if you’re a candidate, please call us for your complimentary Invisalign consultation.
Treatment time varies depending on the complexity of the case and is comparable or faster than conventional bracket and wire braces. But the most critical factor in achieving the desired results in the shortest amount of time is wearing your Invisalign aligners for 22 hours or more every day.
Remember that every moment you're not wearing your aligners, your teeth are not being straightened. The longer you wear your aligners every day, the faster you'll see the results you desire. If Dr. Rubin finds that your teeth have not had time to move as predicted, he may need to adjust your treatment plan midway through. Our mutual goal should be to achieve the desired results quickly and according to plan.
Invisalign is a very popular way to correct the alignment of crooked or crowded teeth. Our Northport, NY patients like Invisalign because the aligner trays are removable, so their oral hygiene isn’t hampered by having to work around unattractive brackets and wires.
Invisalign treatment is referred to as a cosmetic orthodontic treatment because when worn, it is nearly invisible. The clear aligner trays must be worn consistently for at least 22 hours every day. You take your aligners out to eat or drink anything but clear liquids.
The majority of patients we see are candidates for Invisalign. The important thing to consider is what your expectations are for your treatment.
As dentists, we care about the proper alignment of teeth to maintain the health of supporting bone and surrounding soft tissues. We want the teeth to work together without causing excessive and premature wear, and properly aligned teeth exist in a healthier environment.
