Invisalign

Your perfect smile in less time - without metal.

Want Straight Teeth But Want to Avoid Braces?

Wearing metal braces for 2+ years is unrealistic.

You’re dealing with:

Unsightly metal brackets that anyone can spot – even on Zoom calls.

Metal wires that poke and prod your cheeks, teeth, and gums.

The annoying hassle of food restrictions and keeping your teeth clean.

However, Dr. Husam Almunajed offers an aesthetically appealing alternative – and it’s the most advanced dental aligner system out there.

Invisalign: The clear alternative to a better smile and bite.

Invisalign uses clear, plastic aligners to gradually and comfortably straighten your teeth – metal-free. Through 3D dentistry, our Manhattan cosmetic dentist could straighten your smile in about one-third the time as braces. It fixes many smile issues, including:

Why Invisalign Over Braces?

Made for New Yorkers

These custom-made aligners were designed to adapt to your busy lifestyle, not the other way around. How?

  • Removable aligners: Enjoy your favorite foods and live life without braces getting in the way.

  • Fewer visits: Instead of visiting the orthodontist to tighten your braces, switch to your new aligners right at home.

  • Comfortable material: Don’t deal with cumbersome brackets and wires. The aligners are smooth on your teeth and gums.

  • Easy oral hygiene: It’s easy to brush and floss your teeth, which lowers the risk of decay and gum disease.

How Invisalign Works with Dr. Husam Almunajed

The Start
Start your Invisalign journey today!

Before starting this treatment, Dr. Almunajed will examine your radiographs and treat any teeth with decay. Then, he will sit down and talk with you about things you might not like about your smile or perhaps an issue he identified with your bite.

Next, photos will be taken of your teeth and smile, along with digital impressions of your upper and lower arches. These records will be sent to our partners at Invisalign®. In two weeks, we'll invite you back to the office to review the ClinCheck.

This amazing 3D simulation will show us estimated treatment time and describe the calculated movements of each tooth. Once approved, your treatment will be shipped out and be at our office in just a few days, and we’ll prepare to start your treatment!

The Process

Your next visit will consist of adding small attachments (clear colored buttons) to your teeth to act as anchors during movement. These buttons are specifically designed to turn and push your teeth without being noticeable. Once treatment is complete, these attachments will be removed.

You'll then receive your first set of trays and instructions on how to put them in, remove them, and clean them. We'll schedule your next appointment two weeks later to assess the treatment and give you the next trays.

Generally, we'll see you once every two months until treatment is complete. As long as you wear the trays 22 hours a day, your treatment will be successful.

The Follow-Up

Three refinements are included in your treatment plan. A refinement will help tweak the final results, making sure every tooth has achieved our desired movement.

Once alignment is complete, you'll be fitted for retainers, and we'll perform a complete photoshoot of your new smile.

Ask Dr. Almunajed

Learn the answers to your top questions about Invisalign.

  • How will Invisalign affect my everyday life?

    Your aligners are custom crafted for your alignment issue. This means they’ll be invisible in place, so you can go about your life without anyone noticing you’re receiving orthodontic treatment.

    If you want to find out if you’re a candidate for Invisalign, call our cosmetic dental office in NYC at (212) 393-4650 to schedule an appointment. We look forward to meeting you and answering your questions.

  • Are there food restrictions?

    No. You’ll remove the aligners before eating or drinking and then put them back on once done.

  • How long does it take?

    The Invisalign treatment process is customized for each patient.

    The first step involves a full dental exam using 3D digital technology called the iTero digital scanner.

    We’ll use this information to create your custom aligners, and you’ll also see a visual animation of your teeth to see what your new smile will look like before starting treatment.

    With Dr. Almunajed’s artistic eye, he’ll review your treatment and make subtle changes if needed. It typically takes a week for your custom set of Invisalign aligners to be produced and sent back to our office.

  • How long until my teeth are straighten?

    A typical length of time is about 6-12 months. However, more severe misalignment problems may require longer to achieve total smile transformation.
