Invisalign Orthodontics: Orthodontics Without Pain or Shame

Gone are the days when vital orthodontic treatment always required uncomfortable, unflattering metal braces. Invisalign® orthodontics allows you to straighten your smile without embarrassing metal mouth or dietary restrictions. West Sayville Invisalign dentist, Dr. Richard Sigismondi offers this innovative treatment to patients who want to transform their smiles. 

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a cutting-edge cosmetic dentistry service and orthodontic treatment utilizing a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth. The Invisalign aligner trays are custom-made to fit your teeth and gradually shift them into proper alignment. With Invisalign orthodontic treatment, you can achieve a beautifully aligned smile without the use of traditional metal braces.

Benefits of Invisalign Orthodontics

Straightening your smile with Invisalign orthodontics offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Discreet Appearance: Invisalign aligner trays are virtually invisible, allowing you to straighten your teeth with confidence.
  • Enhanced Comfort: Invisalign aligner trays are made from smooth, comfortable materials, minimizing irritation to your gums and cheeks.
  • Removability: You can easily remove the aligners for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing, providing greater convenience and oral hygiene maintenance.
  • Customized Treatment: Each set of aligners is personalized to your specific dental needs, ensuring an optimal treatment plan for your unique smile.
  • Faster Treatment Time: Invisalign orthodontic treatment can be completed in less time compared to traditional braces, depending on your case.

The Invisalign Orthodontics Process


Before you’re approved for Invisalign orthodontics, you’ll attend an initial consultation with Dr. Sigismondi. During this visit, your oral health and dental concerns will be assessed. Dr. Sigismondi will determine if Invisalign is the right treatment option for you by examining your teeth, gums, and bite alignment.

Treatment Planning

Using advanced digital technology, Dr. Sigismondi will create a detailed treatment plan for your Invisalign journey. This includes mapping out the specific movements and stages your teeth will go through to achieve the desired results. You will have the opportunity to see a virtual representation of your new smile before beginning treatment.

Aligner Fabrication

Based on your treatment plan, a series of clear aligners will be custom-made for you. These aligners are created using precise measurements and 3D printing technology to ensure a perfect fit. Each set of aligners will be slightly different, gradually moving your teeth closer to their final positions.

Wear and Progression

You will wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, allowing your teeth to gradually shift into alignment. As you progress through the series of aligners, you will notice visible improvements in the appearance of your smile. It’s important to wear the aligners for 20-22 hours per day for optimal results.

Regular Check-ups

Throughout your Invisalign treatment, regular check-up appointments will be scheduled with Dr. Sigismondi. These appointments allow for close monitoring of your progress and any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan. Dr. Sigismondi will ensure your teeth are moving according to plan and make any modifications if needed.

Caring for Invisalign Clear Aligners

Proper care of your Invisalign aligners is crucial for maintaining their effectiveness and ensuring good oral hygiene. Follow these guidelines to ensure your Invisalign orthodontic treatment keeps doing its best job for your smile:

  1. Remove your Invisalign clear aligners before eating or drinking anything other than water.
  2. Remove your aligners from back to front to avoid tearing them. 
  3. Brush and floss your teeth before reinserting your aligners.
  4. Clean your aligners daily using a soft toothbrush and mild soap or Invisalign cleaning crystals.
  5. Rinse your aligners thoroughly with lukewarm water after cleaning.
  6. Avoid exposing your aligners to hot water, as it may cause them to warp.
  7. Always store your aligners in their provided case when not in use.
