How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners that are specifically molded to your teeth. Over the course of treatment, you will change aligners every two weeks to continue adjusting your teeth. The duration of Invisalign treatment depends on your specific smile and desired outcome and can be discussed with your orthodontist.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign is a great alternative to traditional metal braces. The trays are clear, making it barely noticeable that you’re wearing braces. You’re also able to remove the trays at any time, which allows you to continue eating foods that you love. It’s also much easier to keep up on dental hygiene, brushing and flossing as there are no wires and brackets to work around. Invisalign is also a comfortable way to correct your misalignment and get the smile you want!

Braces Brooklyn NY
Getting braces is a major event in the life of any teen. Often, it can mark the transition from little kid to young adult. While you know they’ll make your teeth straight, you may have questions about what it’s like wearing braces.
How do braces feel at first?
At first, your braces may feel like they stick out. You’re just not used to having that extra little thing on the front of your teeth. Don’t worry. You will get used to them after a short while.
Oftentimes after an adjustment, your teeth may feel loose or you might experience some discomfort from the appliance. We recommend a special wax to help alleviate any irritation to your lips or cheeks.
How do I keep my new braces clean?
It’s more important than ever to brush and floss your teeth when you have braces. Dr. Y and his team will show you how to brush and floss properly with your braces. And, of course, it’s super important to see your regular dentist for cleanings while undergoing treatment.
What can I eat with braces?
For the most part, braces will not impact your regular lifestyle. There are only a few foods you’ll want to avoid:
- Hard Candy
- Chewy and Crunchy Food
- Gum and Sticky Food
These types of food can damage your braces, which means more trips to the orthodontist for repairs and replacements.

Types of Braces
There are 3 types of braces available for your teeth:
- Metal braces
- Clear braces
- Self-litigating braces
Each performs the same basic function of aligning your teeth to their proper position.
The most common type of braces are made of a durable mixture of stainless steel, nickel and various other metals in small amounts. There are hundreds of variations of these braces, but all have the key characteristic of having overhanging edges, or “wings”, around which a metal or elastic tie is used to hold the orthodontic wire in place. Elastic ties come in several different colors and are responsible for the decorative “braces colors” seen on young patients’ teeth. These types of braces allow the wire to be tied in very tightly to the bracket, allowing excellent control in aligning crooked teeth. Generally, these silver metal braces cost less compared to clear braces or other cosmetic options.
Clear braces serve as a cosmetic alternative to traditional metal braces by minimizing the visibility of the braces on the teeth. Typically, these clear orthodontic braces are made of ceramic or plastic alloys, but function in a similar manner to traditional metal braces. Most commonly chosen by adult patients, clear elastic ties and white metal ties are available to be used with these clear braces to help keep the appliances less noticeable.
Similar to traditional orthodontic braces, there are several variations of self-ligating braces. Self-ligating means that the bracket can basically tie itself to the arch wire. There are no metal or elastic ties necessary with self-ligating braces as a built in mechanism can be closed to engage the wire. Self-ligating braces don’t move your teeth any faster than traditional braces, but they do make treatment more efficient and more comfortable, which can result into shorter treatment times.
