Invisalign® in Brewster, NY
If your child’s teeth need straightening, we offer a convenient, comfortable alternative to metal braces. Our experienced dentists can help them get a straighter smile with Invisalign.
What Is Invisalign and How Does It Work?
Invisalign clear braces are special plastic aligners worn over the teeth. They are nearly invisible and are custom-made just for your child. These aligner trays straighten teeth gradually over time. After wearing a set for about two weeks, they’ll move on to the next set of aligners. These transparent braces are nearly invisible and don’t use wires, bands or brackets, and the system works well for mild to moderate orthodontic issues. We know how to straighten teeth and get them aligned to give your child more confidence. Contact our trusted dentists to learn more about Invisalign in Brewster.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
In many cases, parents find that the Invisalign cost is comparable to traditional metal braces. Our expert dentists will work with you to determine the Invisalign treatment cost and help you understand all your options. Dental insurance often covers a large portion of the treatment costs and makes Invisalign affordable. Our helpful office staff can also help you explore low-interest financing and payment plans. Contact us for more information.
How Long Does Invisalign Treatment Take?
Our dentists will develop a custom treatment plan just for your child. Patients can expect to wear their clear aligners for ten months to two years. More complicated cases may take longer, but most people find that their teeth are straightened after about a year of wearing their custom aligners. For teens, the Invisalign length of treatment varies. If they need to wear retainers after treatment to maintain the results, our dentists will make sure you understand when and for how long they will need to wear them.

Is Invisalign as Effective as Metal Braces?
When considering Invisalign vs. braces, some patients wonder which option will offer them the best results. For those with mild to moderate orthodontic issues, Invisalign is as effective as braces. The custom aligner trays lead to the same straightening results as metal braces. They also make it easier to keep teeth clean and healthy. The removable aligners allow your child to brush and floss without wires or brackets getting in the way. If their orthodontic issues are extensive, they may get better results with traditional braces. Our experienced Invisalign dentists will evaluate the situation thoroughly and help you make the best decision about whether your child should get Invisalign vs. braces.
Benefits of Invisalign
When parents consider the treatment choices, they find that there are many Invisalign benefits, including:
- Fewer visits to our office for alignment
- Alignment trays that can be removed at any time
- Ability to eat any foods without worrying about damaging wires or brackets
- Easier to brush and floss thoroughly
- No irritating wires and brackets
- Trays are nearly invisible for a wire-free smile
Can Anyone Get Invisalign?
Many children with common orthodontic issues benefit from this custom treatment. Invisalign can treat underbite, overbite, cross bite, gaps in teeth, and crowded teeth. Some people wonder if you can you get Invisalign on just the top or bottom teeth. Most dentists recommend treatment on both the top and bottom teeth at the same time to keep the patient’s bite aligned. Our dentists can evaluate your child’s teeth and develop a plan just for them. If you’re interested in Invisalign for children, contact us today to set up an appointment.
Does Insurance Cover Invisalign Aligners?
If you have orthodontic benefits as part of your dental plan, you may find that Invisalign is covered by insurance. Dental insurance that covers braces typically also covers the Invisalign cost, including the visits to our office and the clear aligner trays. If you have a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA), you can use these pre-tax dollars to pay for treatment. If you have questions about Invisalign insurance, we can help.
Teeth After Invisalign Treatment
When the treatment is completed, our dentists might recommend that your child wear Invisalign retainers to keep their teeth straight. Most children need to wear retainers full time for a few months. After that, they’ll only have to wear their retainers at night. It’s important to follow instructions for retainer use after Invisalign to make the most of the treatment.
