Invisalign in the Upper East Side, New York
Dr. Seligman is an Invisalign® Premier Preferred Provider
Consider Invisalign® to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted – without braces.
What is it?
Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. So you can smile more during treatment, as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. Our office is proud to feature the iTero digital scanner. This scanner is a small piece of technology that captures images of your teeth, creating an exact digital replica – meaning no messy impressions!
Why would I want it?
Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start, so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
How does it work?
You wear each set of aligners for one to two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to their final positions. You’ll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time typically lasts 9 to 12 months, and the number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both numbers will vary from case to case.
