Invisible orthodontics – Invisalign
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
One of the most remarkable advantages is that they are practically transparent, no one will notice that they are taking an orthodontic treatment, which allows Invisalign to adapt perfectly to their lifestyle.
Another of the many advantages, is that they are removable, so they can be removed to eat, drink and brush their teeth, so they will maintain a good oral hygiene and not get gum inflammed as often happens with orthodontic treatments traditional.
By not wearing brackets or wires with this treatment, it is usually less time you have to spend in consultation.
Personalized treatment of invisible orthodontics
The treatment with Invisalign consists of a series of invisible and removable alienators that must be changed every two weeks for a new set of aligners.
These aligners are manufactured specifically for each patient with the shape of the teeth and the necessary variations so that the corrections are made.
As the aligners change, the teeth move little by little, week after week until they reach the desired final position determined by the orthodontist.
Another advantage of invisalign is that it allows us to know through a software what the final position of the teeth will be before starting the treatment.
Invisalign is a practical and invisible way to correct the position of the teeth and get the smile you want.
Invisalign uses technology by 3D images with which you can visualize the entire treatment step by step week by week with the prescription that the orthodontist has made.
From here, a series of transparent aligners that allow the teeth to move are custom-made to the measure of each tooth.
