At Hoskinson Orthodontics, our goal is to provide the best quality care to each patient we serve in both Scotia and Schenectady, NY, as well as surrounding areas such as Amsterdam and Glenville. Dr. Hoskinson and his friendly team are committed to making your orthodontic experience as pleasant as possible as we create your new beautiful smile. We know that starting the orthodontic process can be intimidating for some people, especially adults, and that is why we are happy to be able to provide multiple orthodontic options. If you are an adult patient looking for a way to achieve the straight smile you have always dreamed of then we encourage you to read on about the Invisalign system.
Invisalign is an orthodontic system that uses clear, interchangeable trays to slowly move and align your teeth without the use of metal brackets and wires that become required for traditional braces. These clear aligners move the teeth in slow increments until they are in the proper alignment. When you are evaluated by Dr. Hoskinson, a leading provider of Invisalign in Scotia and Schenectady NY, he will determine a treatment plan that best fits your personal needs and provides you with aligners that are fit specifically to your mouth.
Invisalign works by slowly moving your teeth into an appropriately aligned position which is determined by Dr. Hoskinson and his experienced team of orthodontic professionals. Advanced computer technologies are used to help create a series of clear plastic Invisalign aligners that work to straighten your smile. Each Invisalign treatment is different for each patient. The average treatment requires anywhere from 12 to 48 sets of aligners that help straighten your teeth throughout the entire treatment process. Each set of aligners provided will generally be worn for about two weeks before the next set gets introduced. As you wear each set of aligners, you will slowly notice your teeth shifting and your smile improving. Leading Scotia and Schenectady orthodontist, Dr. Hoskinson, will ensure that each set of aligners moves your teeth to the necessary position to leave you with a beautiful smile at the end of your treatment.
One of the most significant benefits of using the Invisalign system is it provides clear braces to adults in Scotia and Schenectady NY who may want more discreet orthodontic treatment options. The aligners can also be removed during meals and allow you to brush and floss your teeth normally. Dr. Hoskinson will recommend you put your aligners back in immediately after you finish a meal or brush your teeth to get the best results. Out of all the benefits of Invisalign, the one that stands out the most, however, is its ability to bring you a beautiful straight smile.

This is a SPECIAL ALERT:
The NYS Dental Association has closely monitored all developments with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
As we are aware the COVID-19 situation in New York is one of the most serious in the nation. At this time it is highly recommended that dental offices only provide emergency care for our patients; and close for a minimum of 3 weeks. As a professional office we want to be responsible and slow the spread of COVID-19. We will follow this urgent recommendation- the office will be closed for patient care starting Wednesday 3/18/2020. As of now the office plans to tentatively reopen 4/13/2020. Dr. Hoskinson will be available to see emergency patients – a patient experiencing discomfort. The office will reach out to our patients and reschedule all appointments once we know an exact date for reopening.
This is an extremely fluid, unprecedented event in our country. We are being faced with many unknowns and personal challenges at this time.
Happy & Healthy Wishes to all,
