Invisalign Orthodontics Overview
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.
"Dr. Kasarsky and his team make me smile! My smile is my signature, and I wouldn't trust it to anyone else!"- DH / Office Visit / Feb 13, 2018
"It has been over 25 years since I last saw Dr. Kasarsky and wanted to reach out and say thank you for what you did for me so many years ago. My current dentist in NJ recently commented that the work Jason did was “ahead of his time and lasted 3 times longer than any veneer work he has ever seen” (seals are perfect). I fondly remember Jason and his great office staff. I was in poor dental shape before I saw Jason and he got me in shape just in time for my wedding - now over 25 years ago. Thank you always!"- B.K. / Google / Dec 05, 2019

Invisalign Orthodontics Treatment
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.
Home Teeth Whitening Estimate of Cost
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?
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?
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?
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.
