Treatment for Your Lifestyle
Stacy Wolf Orthodontics can provide treatment using clear aligners to give you beautiful, straight teeth without braces. We offer Invisalign and 3M™ Clarity™ clear aligners for children, teens and adults at our office in Bayside.
Bayside Clear Aligners
If you’re already dreading the thought of long dental appointments and a mouth full of metal wires, clear aligners from Stacy Wolf Orthodontics may be the right choice to straighten your teeth.
Dr. Stacy Wolf can use Invisalign to give you a stunning smile in almost half the time of traditional braces by creating a series of clear, custom-fit aligners.
Clear aligners like Invisalign and 3M™ Clarity™ feel more comfortable than traditional metal bracket braces and can give you stunning results.
Invisalign’s modern approach to straightening teeth centers on the custom series of aligners created for you and only you.
Clear aligner systems like Invisalign feature trays made of clear, lightweight plastic called aligners.
These fit over your teeth and are designed to straighten your smile. You can remove the aligners at any time, making it easier to eat and drink. It’s also easier to brush and floss your teeth.
How Clear Aligners Work
With Invisalign treatment at Stacy Wolf Orthodontics, there are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners about every two weeks until your treatment is complete.
You’ll get a great smile without treatment that gets in the way of your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth.
As you wear the aligners, they’ll gently move your teeth into place based on the exact movements Dr. Wolf plans for you.
Come to our office in Bayside for a free consultation experience a simple and time-efficient first step.
At your first free consultation at Stacy Wolf Orthodontics, we'll take digital scans and X-rays to create a 3D image of your mouth. We use these images to custom-make your first set of aligners to begin the process of straightening your teeth.
You’ll probably wear Invisalign aligners for 9–15 months and typically use 18–30 sets during your treatment with Dr. Wolf. You wear the trays for about 22 hours a day but can remove them to brush your teeth and eat.
Based on your individual needs and the treatment plan Dr. Wolf has set, you’ll wear several sets of trays throughout your orthodontic treatment. You'll start noticing a change in just a few short months!
Clear Aligners vs. Braces
When it comes to treatment with clear aligners, there’s a lot to consider. Most Invisalign patients at our Bayside office enjoy shorter check-ups, fewer appointments, more straightforward oral hygiene, and fewer emergency visits.
However, the system's biggest pro can also be a con—the fact that the aligners are removable. Your cooperation is essential, whether you have braces or Invisalign.
Since Dr. Wolf attaches metal and clear braces to your teeth, these alone do the work. However, with Invisalign, you need to do a little extra work so your trays can complete your treatment at Stacy Wolf Orthodontics.
You’ll need to manage your wear time, keep your aligners clean, and swap them out for the next aligner in the series.
It’s best if you’re sure you can make this commitment before beginning clear aligner treatment at our office in Bayside.
As with standard metal braces, Dr. Stacy Wolf recommends wearing a retainer after your clear aligner treatment to maintain your new alignment and confident new smile.
Clear Aligners for Teens
At Stacy Wolf Orthodontics, we want our teen patients to be excited about starting their journey towards straighter teeth, and clear aligners like Invisalign help Dr. Wolf do exactly that.
Whether you’re a musician, an athlete, a thespian, class president, or anything else, you’ll be able to participate in all your activities without the barrier that traditional braces might present. And, since Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic and almost invisible, your friends probably won’t even know you’re wearing them.
Dr. Wolf thinks that teens around Bayside should be able to participate in the activities they want, while still feeling confident enough to attend social events and make lasting memories. You should also be able to get efficient orthodontic treatment for crowded teeth, uneven spacing, and bite issues.
Invisalign helps you focus on doing what you do best—being yourself. At your first free consultation with Dr. Stacy Wolf, you’ll discover how clear aligners can be a good fit for your smile and lifestyle!
Offering Invisalign First for Children
Dr. Stacy Wolf offers Invisalign® treatment for kids around Bayside, too! Children all around Flushing and the surrounding areas can find comfortable and clear results with clear aligner treatment at Stacy Wolf Orthodontics.
In 2018, Invisalign released a clear aligner system designed for patients ages 7-10, called Invisalign First or Invisalign First Phase. Even with baby teeth, it may be the perfect time for children ages 6 to 10 years old to start orthodontic treatment at Stacy Wolf Orthodontics.
In orthodontic terms, we call this “Phase 1 treatment”. At this stage, orthodontists like Dr. Stacy Wolf can use early treatment with Invisalign for kids to address a developing problem.
See Dr. Stacy Wolf to treat your child using Invisalign clear aligners. She’ll address their unique needs while creating predictable results and a positive experience.
