The Invisalign treatment is an election treatment for adult patients and is formed by a series of almost invisible and removable aligners which are substituted every two weeks by a new set. Each aligner is specifically and only realized for one´s teeth. When aligners are substituted, teeth move slowly, week after week, until they align in their final position, defined from our dentist. Moreover, a 3D virtual treatment program (software ClinCheck®) shows how our teeth will move during treatment. This allows us to know in advance what the aspect of our teeth will be once the treatment is finished. The results of the ClinCheck system allow us to realize transparent and customised aligners for each patient. They will gradually reposition the patient´s teeth and obtain a smile to be proud of. The advantages of these transparent masks are
: • they can be removed when we eat, brush our teeth and use the floss • aligners (masks) are substituted every two weeks • teeth shift little by little • the dentist or orthodontist does regular check-ups on their progress • most people do not even realize there is an ongoing treatment • the system does not disturb our life style • there is no wire not metal strip irritating our mouth and, moreover, nobody will notice the treatment.
A qualified orthodontist or dentist creates a treatment plan. First pictures are taken, then dental impressions, a panorex and a tele-X-ray. Dental impressions are then sent to the USA, where a software (special computer program) simulates the teeth movements during treatment. Once we have these models, personalized transparent aligners are made and sent to the dental office. Each mask must be worn for two weeks and the orthodontist will monitor progresses until the result is reached. Besides straightening teeth in an almost invisible way, Invisalign can have positive effects on our mouth´s health, preventing painful gum inflammations and cavities. Invisalign is one of the many orthodontic treatment options available. Your dentist will be able to give you suggestions on the most suitable treatment for you.
