Signature Smile is Proud To Offer Invisalign®
Cosmetic and restorative dentist, Dr. Evelina Tolchinsky, is happy to offer her patients in Brooklyn Heights, Dumbo, Cobble Hill, Fort Greene, Carroll Gardens, and all of New York City Invisalign clear aligners. Invisalign offers the latest and most comfortable approach to a beautiful new smile.
Invisalign is a clear aligner dental appliance that allows you to straighten your teeth without cumbersome metal braces. The virtually clear aligners allow patients to realign their teeth with ease and without anyone noticing. Invisalign clear aligners are ideal for patients such as teenagers, brides, CEOs, media figures, and anyone seeking a straightened and beautiful smile.
Conditions Treated With Invisalign
Poorly aligned teeth can occur for any number of reasons. Dr. Tolchinsky may recommend Invisalign to her patients in Brooklyn if they suffer from crowding, an underbite, an overbite, a crossbite, or an open bite.
Crowding occurs when the jaw does not have enough space to accommodate the teeth, resulting in crooked teeth. Overcrowding can often result in the accumulation of plaque, which could lead to tooth decay and gum disease because there is not enough space to properly clean the mouth.
An underbite occurs when the bottom teeth protrude past the top teeth. The condition can occur when the bottom or top jaw is overgrown or if missing upper teeth cause the jaw to recede. The underbite can cause teeth to function and wear improperly. Underbites can cause pain in the jaw and the temporomandibular joint.
An overbite is caused by genetics, bad oral history, or an overdevelopment of the maxilla, the bone that supports the upper teeth. Overbites can cause pain in the jaw and wear on the teeth.
A crossbite occurs when any of the top teeth bite down inside of the bottom teeth. The condition can be painful and can lead to bone loss and gum disease
An open bite occurs when the top teeth and bottom teeth are unable to make proper physical contact. The condition can be caused by genetics or excessive thumb sucking. Patients with this condition may experience difficulty chewing and a speech impediment as well as jaw and temporomandibular joint problems.
The Treatment Process for Invisalign
As an experienced Invisalign-trained provider, Dr. Tolchinsky is excited to help all of her patients achieve a beautiful smile. This proven method of clear aligners is ideal for many patients and works to correct the alignment of the teeth without the process and burden of traditional metal braces. Invisalign allows patients to have a healthier and happier smile with ease. Patients in Brooklyn Heights and all of New York City can come to Signature Smile for a consultation. We will take x-rays and impressions of your teeth to create a 3D image of your teeth on which to base your treatment plan. Your Invisalign aligners will be custom molded for your individual treatment.
The aligners make small adjustments to your teeth to achieve the desired results. Aligners are worn for 20-22 hours per day and changed every two weeks. The length of treatment varies for each individual case but can take as little as a year for adults. Patients will visit Signature Smile every four to six weeks for exams to ensure a successful path towards their new smile.
