OVERBITE FIXED WITH INVISALIGN

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is at the forefront of cosmetic dentistry technology. Unlike the more traditional braces or retainers, Invisalign is a virtually invisible method of straightening your teeth. You will be fitted with removable, see-through aligners that have been specifically crafted to fit your teeth.

What is an Overbite?

Overbite is when a person’s upper and lower jaws aren’t the same size or are malformed. There is excessive protrusion of the upper jaw, or an under bite, when the lower jaw protrudes forward causing the lower jaw and teeth to extend out beyond the upper teeth.

Fixing an Overbite with Invisalign

Julie A. like many of us needed braces when she was younger. Her two front teeth were slightly forward that resulted in an overbite, but were not quite “buck teeth”.

She also had a couple of crooked teeth on the bottom. “My parents could not afford for me to get braces when I was younger. I initially thought that it was no big deal that my front teeth stuck out slightly. Unfortunately, some kids did make comments about my “buck teeth”, and I always wanted to get braces to get my teeth straightened. Since I could not get them, I just lived with my overbite”, explained Julie.

However, she had to be cautious eating certain foods. “Unfortunately, I could not bite into a slice of pizza, since the cheese would fallout due to my overbite”, shared Julie.

At the age of 23, Julie moved to NYC and noticed that a lot of people had perfect teeth and a natural smile. She thought more about the desire to have her teeth straightened, but did not want a “mouth full of metal” at that age.

After seeing advertisements for Invisalign, Julie knew that she wanted to learn more about clear braces. So she began the search for a Prosthodontist (cosmetic dentist) near her work in Midtown and not just a general dentist.

Invisalign Treatment with Madison Avenue Dentists

Julie found Dr. Stella Oh and Dr. Ash Estafan with all of their stellar reviews on both ZocDoc and Google. “I was initially very nervous to meet Dr. Oh, since I had a challenging time finding a dentist that I could really connect with and trust”, explained Julie.

“When I first walked into their office I was welcomed by friendly staff, as well as a very clean, modern and relaxing atmosphere. I met Dr. Oh and her vibe was super sociable with outstanding bedside manners, while at the same time being very knowledgeable.

Following the detailed examination, Dr. Oh was very honest with what to expect with an Invisalign treatment, and even shared with Julie the pros and cons of Invisalign. She explained everything in detail and took the time to answer all of my questions. Since it was an investment, I decided to wait and think about getting the Invisalign treatment, and would just have my teeth cleaned during that visit.”

“I was surprised by how they were not pushy with my decision in waiting to get Invisalign, and they went the extra mile even during my dental cleaning. My mouth gets dry and they actually offered to put Vasoline on my lips without me saying anything. It feels like I am at a spa, and I never had an experience like this before at a dentist office”, shared Julie.

After several other visits and discussions with Dr. Oh regarding the Invisalign treatment, Julie decided that she wanted to fix her crooked teeth and made the investment so she can have a natural smile.

The Procedure

So in July, Julie started with 21 Invisalign alignment trays and now she is on tray 14. Things were going so well with the progress of Julie’s teeth straightening that both Dr. Oh and Julie were pleasantly surprised.

Julie shared, “I constantly compared my first Invisalign tray to each new one and the past ones to check the progress, and I am absolutely thrilled with the amazing results. Even though I am not done going through all of my Invisalign trays, my teeth actually now connect, and I can have pizza without being concerned with the cheese falling out.”

“I can truly say that Dr. Oh and Dr. Estafan are the best cosmetic dentist that I have ever found in Midtown. The Invisalign treatment makes me look better and is a confidence booster. If you want that natural smile (we all desire), I highly recommend contacting Dr. Oh and Dr. Estafan at Madison Avenue Dentists.”
