Invisalign is a modern alternative to traditional braces. They are transparent, accurate, painless, removable, and show fast results.invisalign-preffered-provider

Perfect smiles come far and few, but at Purchase Street Family Dental of Rye, New York we offer all of the options you need to achieve the ultimate visual improvement to your oral presentation. Traditional braces were once the only solution but now Invisalign is the best option for teeth that need a constant alignment treatment.

How Does Invisalign Work?


When creating the Invisalign specifically for your teeth using x-rays, photographs, and CT scans the computer builds a 3-d replica of the plate for your mouth. This uniquely molded plate will not irritate your gums or do damage to your teeth and the straightening process is faster and more comfortable than traditional metal braces. Traditional braces can be hard to clean and can cause pain when brushing but Invisalign simply soaks in a treatment for one hour twice a day to maintain cleanliness. Invisalign can be worn throughout the day, removed at any time, and not only are they transparent and unnoticeable they are also comfortable.

Does Invisalign Look Like Traditional Braces?

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign is “invisible”. These transparent retainers are unnoticable and they are much more comfortable that traditional braces.

Invisalign Maintenance
  • Soak your retainer for one hour in the morning and one hour in the evening to rid of debris and bacteria. This is important to keep your teeth healthy and clean.
  • If you don’t have any denture tablets for cleaning, baking soda is another alternative. Dissolve one tablespoon of baking soda in water and let it soak.
