Straight teeth bring more than just an enhanced cosmetic appeal to your smile. When the teeth are properly aligned, they are easier to brush and floss and less likely to develop cavities and gum disease. Biting, chewing, and speaking activities are also performed with greater ease and comfort. Invisalign clear aligners are an advanced alternative to traditional metal braces that may be ideal for teens, tweens, and adult patients. These practically invisible trays are removable and made of smooth, comfortable plastic and infused with patented technology that guides your teeth into their ideal locations over time. At PDADental, we are very fortunate to have one of the nation's top Invisalign providers under our roof who has successfully treated a range of orthodontic concerns with this system. Invisalign orthodontics is just one of the ways PDADental continues to bring world-class care to patients in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan, NY. We invite you to schedule a visit with our Invisalign dentist today to learn more about this advanced teeth-straightening solution.
"I've seen Dr. Quiong and Dr. Galler at Premier Dental and I had great experiences with both doctors! What I love about this practice is they're very efficient. They don't waste any time. I was invited back into an exam room almost immediately after I arrived at the office. Dr. Quiong's cleaning was thorough and quick and she answered any questions I had with patience and without hesitation. Dr. Galler went out of his way to fit me in for an early morning Invisalign consultation. Knowing little to nothing about Invisalign, I walked out of Dr. Galler's office feeling like an expert. He carefully fit my Invisalign trays and then meticulously explained exactly how my treatment would work and the possible outcomes or effects of my choices on how to go about wearing Invisalign. He is very easy to talk to and very knowledgeable. I would feel comfortable calling Dr. Galler with a follow-up question and/or making another appointment for any inquiries given his welcoming and helpful attitude."- S.F. / Yelp / Feb 05, 2013
"I did my Invisalign treatment with Dr. Steven Ritholtz, and I couldn't be happier with the results! I had a particularly tight schedule because I was hoping to see some improvements in time for my wedding. Dr. Ritholtz and his team were able to accommodate my timeline needs, and I was thrilled with how my teeth looked on my wedding day and in photos of the day. The PDA dental team is responsive, professional, and easy to work with. I highly recommend them for Invisalign treatment."- G.T. / Yelp / Oct 16, 2019
"Couldn't be happier with my Invisalign outcome! Dr. Steven Ritholtz/ Dr. Galler and Natasha were amazing. Was told by previous dentist that it would take at least a year for straight teeth. But thankfully it was very fast (half the time!) and efficient at Premier! Easy and fast appointments. They are experts in the process. Honestly couldn't be more satisfied! Highly recommend."- C.R. / Yelp / Aug 08, 2018
"Searching a year ago for an orthodontist close to my office for Invisalign, Premier Dental Associates (PDA) was always the top and I'm thrilled and now realize why it was so well reviewed. Perhaps one of the most welcoming reception desk I've ever had the pleasure of being greeted by Loni, Judeen and Darcy; they are beyond Professional. I wish more reception staff would follow their example. Dr. David Galler was the reason I went to PDA, He is highly ranked on the knowledge and success with Invisalign. Dr. Galler is very thorough and full of information. A little over one year later, my overbite and massive gap are gone and I can't stop smiling. Natasha, Dr. Galler's assistant made my visits an absolute pleasure as well. When my office moved to Queens I still went their for visits and was often late, but once Dr. G knew I was running late he'd wait a few minutes fo me. I can't say nicer thinks about how overjoyed I am that Yelp Exist and so many others reviews Dr. Galler and Premier Dental Associates. Additional note: Dr. Neer Even Hen was amazing, when I had an periodontal emergency, he was calm and clearly explained to me what was happening, what he would do and what I should do in the future to avoid a similar situations. The Doctors at PDA work great together so I wouldn't doubt that they are all wonderful. Inexpensive they are not. But I don't regret a cent spent in this practice. Not only did I leave there with a beautiful smile, I left with knowledge of how to better care for my gums and teeth."- S.S. / Yelp / Jul 04, 2012
"Years ago, I underwent some orthodontia work but unfortunately was never able to finish. After going through my teen and college years with halfway finished teeth, I decided that enough was enough and that I needed to look into orthodontia options. As a working adult, Invisalign satisfied all of my needs (low profile, low maintenance, and great results for my overcrowding/spacing issues) so I went to see none other than the top 1% Invisalign dentist himself, Dr. Galler. His title speaks for itself but his work surely does too. Nine months and 19 Invisalign trays later, my teeth are beautifully set and much whiter thanks to a complimentary whitening kit. Both Dr. Galler and his wonderful dental assistant Natasha were very attentive throughout the entire process and graciously patient with my million and one questions (I like to ask a lot of questions). I couldn't be happier with the results and my beautiful new smile! I definitely recommend coming to Premier Dental and seeing Dr. Galler if you're contemplating orthodontia care via Invisalign."- S.S. / Yelp / Oct 28, 2015
Orthodontic issues may result from genetics, developmental problems, injuries, tooth loss, and parafunctional habits (like thumb-sucking during early childhood). Correcting problems, like bite misalignment, can help to minimize the risk of an array of oral health problems, including jaw pain, temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD), chipped and worn teeth, gum recession, and difficulty with eating and speaking abilities. Our Invisalign specialist may recommend this highly discreet clear aligners solution as an alternative to the challenges of traditional braces. However, some cases may still be best treated with a conventional approach to orthodontics care. Conditions commonly addressed with Invisalign include:
- Gapped teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Narrow arches
Invisalign may be an excellent solution for preteens, teens, and adult patients interested in straightening their smiles. While the clear aligners are kept in the mouth for 20 – 22 hours every day, even during sleep, they are removed before eating and to perform home care activities. Invisalign is a highly discreet option that allows many patients to undergo orthodontic care without others even realizing they are wearing braces.
What To Expect
The Invisalign process aligns the teeth through a series of custom computer-generated trays. During your consultation, our team will take digital x-rays, pictures, and easy iTero intraoral impressions of your mouth, which our Invisalign specialist will use to custom-create your unique orthodontic treatment plan. This data will be shared with the Invisalign lab where your trays will be crafted. A few weeks later, we will have you return to PDADental to receive your aligners and learn how to use them. Each pair of trays is worn for 1 – 2 weeks, only to be removed for eating and oral hygiene efforts, and then traded out for the next aligner set in the series. Our team will schedule visits for you with our Invisalign dentist about every 4 – 6 weeks to monitor your tooth movement and treatment progress. Throughout the course of your care, these aligners will apply gentle pressure and gradually move your teeth into proper alignment. The time spent undergoing Invisalign treatment varies among individuals but generally lasts about one year.
After your orthodontic issues have been resolved and your Invisalign treatment is finished, you will begin the retention phase of your care. A new digital impression of your mouth will be taken in order to create your custom retainers. Made from the same comfortable, clear material as aligners, Vivera® retainers help to hold your teeth in their new positions as your jawbone stabilizes. Our Invisalign specialist will let you know how long your retainers should be worn and the best way to care for these appliances. We will be sure to evaluate your bite and tooth alignment during each of your routine cleaning and exam visits at PDADental.
Invisalign may be a covered benefit if your dental insurance plan includes orthodontic treatment. When you visit for your initial consultation, our administrative staff will provide you with an estimate of your insurance coverage and file your claim on your behalf. The team at PDADental wants your family to enjoy the benefits of a straight smile and offers easy payment solutions to help you cover any out-of-pocket costs. Talk with our team today about your payment choices, including the possibility of flexible payment plans with our finance partner, CareCredit®.
