Dr. Ingrid Barillas and Dr. Rodolfo Sanchez have a solution; get fitted for clear braces! Invisalign brand clear aligners are a new and improved way for adults to treat their misaligned teeth and jaws.

Dr. Barillas, Dr. Sanchez, and the team at Dental Specialists of New York know that adults who delay necessary orthodontic treatment may be damaging their mouth and negatively affecting their overall health. Traditional metal braces are very visible and may cause problems when talking, laughing, and when “saying ‘Cheese!’”.

What are clear braces?

Clear braces are made of clear ceramic materials, and they attach to the teeth in the same way that traditional metal braces do. They do require a bit more care due to their more fragile nature. But the low-visibility nature of this treatment option appeals to adults who are avoiding orthodontic care because of the appearance of metal braces.

Clear braces offer many advantages over other orthodontic treatment systems such as Invisalign clear plastic tray aligners. They provide an invisible way to correct several different types of severe or complex orthodontic issues.

Patients in Midtown, NYC being treated with clear braces will be guaranteed to complete their treatment on time and with exceptional results.
