Tis the season for repairs!

With Easter just passing, many are paying a last minute visit to their orthodontist at our White Plains or Yonkers office to repair the damage of Easter candy’s path. Yes, all those broken brackets which are loose and spinning around the wire! Although it may be hard to resist eating hard and crunchy candy, there are many gentler alternatives to snacking. Fruit is perfect to satisfy a sugar craving. Much healthier too! For example, bananas, kiwi, strawberries, grapes, and mangoes are all perfectly safe to eat with braces when they are sliced and cut into bite-sized pieces. Good thing too because May’s fruit of the month is mango! So, from all of us at iSmile Orthodontics, cut up, enjoy and don’t forget to brush! 🙂


Today, more and more people are utilizing orthodontic treatments to improve their facial appearance. However, to obtain maximum benefits from the treatment, it is necessary to seek the assistance of skilled orthodontists rather than your general dentist. Patients residing in Westchester can easily benefit from the services of an experienced Invisalign expert at a good orthodontic facility in White PLains or Yonkers, NY.



Consult an experienced orthodontist to find out whether you are a candidate for Invisalign. This is usually decided after the doctor studies the structure of your teeth, jaws and face with the help of X-rays, photographs and bite impressions. If he finds that Invisalign is the right treatment option for your smile, it would be prescribed. Invisalign braces are custom-designed using advanced computer imaging technology according to your teeth structure. The orthodontist can even show you on the computer how your teeth will look like after the treatment. Invisalign aligners work by applying a mild pressure to move your teeth to straighter positions. One set of aligners has to be worn for two weeks and then replaced with a fresh set so as to speed up the straightening process. This is to be repeated until your teeth are perfectly aligned. The treatment can be completed within 9-15 months and the patient has to wear about 18-30 sets of aligners.Invisalign braces are easily detachable and therefore patients can maintain good oral hygiene. They can consume food and drink comfortably, as well as brush and floss normally.
