Clear aligners are another treatment option that can help achieve a beautiful smile and your orthodontic goals. This system accomplishes tooth movement using a series of customized clear trays. Aligners work differently than braces. They are designed to gently and gradually adjust the positions of the misaligned teeth in order to give you a straighter, more beautiful smile. Orthodontic treatment with clear aligners from our Queens, NY orthodontist is the key to anyone seeking a better smile without the troubles associated with braces.

What Are Invisalign Aligners?
One of the greatest innovations in orthodontics can easily be attributed to Invisalign. Invisalign pioneered the use of clear aligners to achieve beautiful smile esthetics and functional bites. Each aligner should be worn for about 22 hours a day for a week. To ensure your teeth are adjusting appropriately, we recommend that you schedule regular orthodontic office visits at SimpliBraces with Dr. Yelizar every eight to twelve weeks.
What are the benefits of Invisalign Aligners?
The key benefit of any aligner system is that they are removable, so you can enjoy your favorite food. Comfortable to wear that means no hassles with poking wires or broken brackets. They prevent wear on the teeth from tooth clenching and grinding. They are virtually invisible and are perfect for all age groups. Because you can remove them, home care is easy, brush and floss as you normally would.
Who is a candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign is a great option for young children who need interceptive treatment, as well as teenagers and adults needing comprehensive treatment. During your consultation visit, Dr. Yelizar will determine if you are a candidate for this esthetic appliance option.
What is the average treatment time with Invisalign?
When using Invisalign aligners just like with any other appliance, treatment time varies based on the complexity of the case. Most of the time treatment should last about 12-24 months.
