Clear Aligners Popular with Westchester Patients

Everybody wants a great smile, but a lot of us need help getting there. More and more people are having success with clear orthodontic devices called aligners.

Glaser Orthodontics is one of the Elite providers of Invisalign which is the most popular choice of invisible aligners in Westchester. Glaser Orthodontics also offers traditional braces which use brackets connected by wires to encourage teeth to move. Clear aligners are a series of tight-fitting custom-made retainers that slip over the teeth. Invisalign is the largest producer of clear aligners, but it’s not the only brand.

For various reasons, clear (or “invisible”) aligners are not the perfect choice for everyone. The team at Glaser Orthodontics will help you decide what’s best for you. We have been treating both teens and adults in the Westchester area for 25 years.

Because the invisible aligners are custom-built for a tight fit, they are an excellent choice for both adults or teens. Dr. Glaser says that straightening a child’s teeth is a bit more complicated. This is because young people, and their mouths, are still growing and developing;.  Glaser Orthodontics may need to adjust the length of your treatment with clear aligners to accommedate for a youth who is still growing.

Clear orthodontic aligners are typically used for patients who have mild or moderately crowded teeth, or have minor spacing issues but Glaser Orthodontics is finding Invisalign can be used in most cases. Those patients who have severe crowding or spacing problems — or severe underbites, overbites, or crossbites — may need more complex treatment.

Correcting crooked or misaligned teeth isn’t just about creating a picture-perfect smile. It can help protect the long-term health of your teeth.  Let the team at Glaser Orthodontics fit you with your clear aligners today. Call our office in Westechester for your consultation.
