Minor changes can start to occur with the oral structure of your mouth and the alignment of your teeth as you age. If the deviations in your dentition are caught in a reasonable amount of time a orthodontist like Dr. Ora Rosenfeld Canter might be able to correct the alignment of your teeth with Invisalign®.

This series of clear plastic aligners can help improve the appearance of your smile. This can also reduce your chances of suffering chips, dental fractures and chronic conditions like dental attrition.

This orthodontic treatment process doesn’t require the use of over metal components that are generally associated with traditional orthodontic braces. Many patients will see a dramatic improvement in as little as six to eight weeks.

After Invisalign® has fully corrected the alignment of your teeth there will likely be some residual tension in your periodontal sockets. If it isn’t addressed, by a retainer, it could cause your teeth to gradually drift out of their ideal alignment.   

In many of these cases, Dr. Ora Rosenfeld Canter will provide you with a plastic retainer. This simple dental appliance is made from a clear plastic material. You will need to use the retainer at the specified times. To prevent your teeth from relapsing out of their corrected position.  

If you had your teeth corrected at Dr. Ora Rosenfeld Canter’s orthodontic clinic in Astoria, New York, and you have a question about retainers, you can always call 718-278-2441 to speak to a staff member at Ora R. Canter, DDS Orthodontics. We are pleased to offer our services in the Queens, Long Island City, Woodside, Elmhurst, Corona, Jackson Heights, and Middle Village, New York areas!
