Bridgham Barr Orthodontics prides itself on offering premier treatment options for patients of all ages in Northern Westchester to achieve the perfect smile. This is why the doctors at Bridgham Barr Orthodontics are proud to offer Invisalign® to adults and InvisalignTeen® for teens looking to improve their smiles without the look and feel of traditional braces. While standard metal braces are more noticeable and can irritate the gums with wires and brackets, Invisalign offers a clear solution that is virtually invisible. Learn more about the benefits of choosing Invisalign below.
Invisalign straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. It’s almost undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you’re straightening your teeth.
Invisalign and Invisalign Teen are modern orthodontic treatments that use a series of virtually invisible, clear, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. Invisalign combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with traditional century old science of orthodontics. Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your orthodontist. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. Invisalign’s technology allows you to view your virtual treatment plan and results before you start your treatment, so that you can preview how your teeth will look once your treatment is complete.
Your first step is to visit our office to determine if Invisalign is right for you. Your doctor uses their orthodontic expertise to instruct Invisalign on how your teeth should move through advanced computer technology. This is why it is important that Invisalign is provided by a Specialist in Orthodontics. Each aligner is worn for a time period specified by the doctor (one to two weeks each) and only taken out to eat, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually — week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Then you’ll be smiling like you never have before!
Not only are Invisalign aligners virtually invisible, they are removable, so you have the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment, unlike braces, by simply by removing the aligners when you eat. You also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and good oral hygiene. In addition, Invisalign requires less visits than braces, so you’ll spend less time in the office and scheduling appointments, and more time out living your life.
Consider Invisalign treatment to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted — without braces. A complimentary consultation with our doctors can determine if Invisalign is right for you.
The all new iTero element scanner enables our office to take a 3-D digital scan of the teeth and bite, make adjustments in real time, and transmit the file wirelessly for processing. Thanks to this technology we are no longer required to take molds (impressions) of your teeth to begin your Invisalign treatment!
