Most people aren’t born with perfectly straight teeth, and those who desire straight teeth may not want to go through traditional metal braces. This is especially true for adults. Invisalign technology allows cosmetic dentist, Dr. Jason Kasarsky, to help his New York City patients to effectively move their teeth into alignment without clunky metal braces. Invisalign is a series of clear, comfortable aligner trays that are custom-made to gradually move the teeth into a new, straighter position. Each tray is made of smooth, clear plastic that ‘snaps’ onto the teeth for most of the day, but can be removed for easier eating and cleaning. Invisalign created their trays to be virtually undetectable when they are worn, which makes Invisalign great for adults and teenagers.

"Extraordinary expertise and state of the art tools, combined with warmth and kindness from all the staff, have well exceeded all my expectations. Dr. Kasarsky immediately built trust by showing me what he saw via a small camera, patiently explaining my options and addressing my concerns. His hygienist Marissa has set the bar for the most effective cleaning I have ever had - and the most gentle. The entire staff takes patient care to a whole new level. I can't imagine going elsewhere."- C.J. / Healthgrades / Dec 12, 2016
"I will start by saying I am very nervous when I go to the dentist. Having said that, I have been going to Dr. Kasarsky for 11 years. I think if it wasn't for Jason and his high level of care I would not go as much as I do.Yesterday I had my front tooth worked on. A slight cap. He did an amazing job. I really don't know what to say. I don't review. The precision and level of perfection is something that you rarely see these days. As a perfectionist myself it is something that I strive for everyday- but rarely see. Unbelievable. It matched so well my wife couldn't tell which side was complete and worked on.I trust him so much that since moving to NJ from the East Village, I still travel 1 hour to see him and his trusted team."- D.G. / Google / Aug 08, 2016
Invisalign technology creates a 3-D image of the patient’s teeth to help the dentist create a virtual treatment plan and create the first set of aligners for the patient. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign trays are discreet and comfortable to wear. Patients will wear their aligners every day for at least 20 – 22 hours a day for approximately 2 weeks, then switch to the next set of aligners. On average, patients wear between 18 - 30 aligner sets before they reach their final results.
Estimate of Cost@headingTag>
Invisalign can cost from $3,500 - $6,000. Some of the cost of this treatment may be covered by dental insurance, so our office will contact the patient’s insurance provider prior treatment to determine their coverage and out-of-pocket costs. The cost of Invisalign varies among patients based on the complexity of the case and the number of aligners needed during the treatment.
Invisalign Treatment Time?@headingTag>
Since every smile is different, the treatment time for each individual will be different. Most treatments last between 12 and 18 months, with the average treatment time being 13.5 months. During the consultation and throughout the treatment, the dentist will be able to give patient a better estimate of how long they will need to use their aligners.
Special Care for Invisalign?@headingTag>
It is important for Invisalign patients to follow the directions given by their dentist if they want to get to their best results. Because Invisalign is not attached to the teeth like traditional braces, it is very important that patients wear their aligners as much as possible; taking them off only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
Benefits of Invisalign?@headingTag>
Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign is incredibly comfortable to wear and barely noticeable. Most Invisalign patients do not feel uncomfortable or self-conscious when they are wearing their aligners, unlike patients with traditional metal braces.
