How does Invisalign work?

Perhaps you've wondered recently how Invisalign treatment with New City and Stony Point orthodontists Drs. Terry and Ian Sobler straightens teeth without using those metallic traditional braces? The Invisalign system is a state-of-the-art system of clear, removable aligners that we proudly offer.

We encourage you to watch this informative video about the Invisalign treatment. We also have plenty of resources on our website to check out about Invisalign, or give our office a call to learn if Invisalign is right for you. Enjoy!

"Hey, Drs. Sobler: What’s so special about an orthodontist?"

"Dentists, Orthodontists, they're all the same right?" We hear our patients asking this question as they wonder about the difference between an orthodontist and a dentist. Before becoming an orthodontist Drs. Sobler started out in dental school and earned a DDS (dental degree), just like your dentist. After dental school however, Drs. Sobler decided they wanted to learn more about orthodontics, which is one of nine specialties within the dental field. They were selected to an Orthodontic Specialty Program to become an expert in orthodontics, which focuses on tooth and jaw alignment and bite problems like overbites and under bites.

Other dental specialties you may have heard of include endodontic (focusing on the soft tissue inside your teeth), periodontic (focusing on the gums and other tissues surrounding your teeth) and prosthodontic (focusing on restoring and replacing damaged teeth).

Isn't it nice to know there's a dental expert here to help you through any type of treatment your teeth, jaw and gums might need? At Sobler Orthodontics we take extreme pride in our specialty and look foward to providing the most cutting edge treatment.
