The most recent study from the American Association of Orthodontics dispels a common myth, showing one in five orthodontic patients in the U. S. is an adult. At his New York City cosmetic dentistry practice, Michael Kosdon, DDS is further softening the aesthetic and age-related stigma associated with metal braces, and giving many adults a second chance at flashing a seamless smile as an Elite Provider of the clear braces known as Invisalign®.
A study by the American Association of Orthodontics shows one in five U. S. adults pursue a smile makeover with an orthodontic procedure. Dr. Michael Kosdon, a cosmetic dentist in Manhattan, specializes in this new technology, and offers patients a second chance at a first impression without the hassle or discomfort of traditional braces.
1 million patients worldwide have straightened their smiles with clear teeth aligners, and Dr. Kosdon’s designation as an Elite Preferred Invisalign® Provider signifies his extensive experience and clinical training with this technology. The Elite status is the highest Invisalign® distinction possible, meaning Dr. Kosdon is one of a select few in the Manhattan area able to offer this level of care. In addition to the increased comfort and convenience, the Invisalign® system can require less time than traditional methods, and computer imagery can allow patients a glimpse at their potential cosmetic dentistry results.
Dr. Kosdon says while the smile at the end of the road is the ultimate goal, clear teeth aligners allow his patients to show off their smiles during the process, which typically takes nine to fifteen months. Once completed, Dr. Kosdon says the Invisalign® procedure can be followed by teeth whitening to further enhance the overall impact of the smile makeover, and provide patients of all ages with a beautiful smile and a new beginning.
