An Alternative to Metal Braces
Harlem Dental Associates offers Invisalign in New York for patients who need orthodontic treatment but want to avoid metal braces. Many teens, and especially adults, are not interested in wearing metal braces for aesthetic reasons. The clear aligners used in Invisalign treatment are nearly invisible, so you can get the improvements you want without traditional braces.

A Great Choice for Teens & Adults
Teeth that are misaligned or crooked are more than just a cosmetic problem. Crowded or misaligned teeth are more difficult to brush and floss, which can make them more prone to decay. Our patients choose Invisalign in New York for the many benefits of clear aligners, compared to traditional braces.
Unlike traditional braces, our Harlem Invisalign treatment allows you to:
- Eat all your favorite foods
- Avoid unattractive metal brackets and wires
- Visit the dentist less frequently to check your progress
- Remove the aligners for easy brushing and flossing
- Avoid discomfort
Older teens and adults often want to avoid the appearance, discomfort, and inconvenience of metal braces and prefer the look of clear aligners to straighten their teeth. The Invisalign treatment uses clear aligners that are customized to fit perfectly over your teeth. The aligner completely covers the visible portion of the teeth, but it is nearly invisible. Most people won’t even notice you are wearing the aligners.
What to Expect with Invisalign
A custom treatment plan is created for each patient based on the changes that are needed. A series of clear aligners are custom-made to gradually move your teeth from their current position into the desired position. You will wear each of the aligners in order, for about two weeks, and then switch to the next in the series. Occasional visits to our office will be needed to monitor your progress.
You must be dedicated to the Invisalign process to get the results you want. This is one reason that the treatment is often more effective for older teens and adults than for kids. Although the aligners can be removed for eating, oral hygiene, and special occasions, they must be worn for at least 22 hours per day for the treatment to work. Wearing them for less than the recommended time can delay or derail your treatment.
Start Planning Your Treatment
Invisalign is effective for treating many orthodontic problems, such as crossbite, overbite, underbite, open bite, crowded teeth, and gaps between the teeth. Unfortunately, this treatment is not effective for every patient. The best way to learn if Invisalign is right for you is to schedule an appointment in our office for an examination and to discuss your treatment options.
While we participate in many dental insurance plans, insurance generally only covers a portion of the cost of treatment. Financing options are available to help our patients cover the cost of Invisalign in New York. We are happy to discuss cost and financing to help you find the right solution for you to get the treatment you need.
Please call (844) 976-3600 to find out if you are a good candidate for our Harlem Invisalign treatment.
