Invisible
Aligners

– WHAT IS IT?

Invisible dental aligners or invisalign are an increasingly popular orthodontic solution, as they offer the same (or even more) effectiveness than conventional dental braces, with the advantage of not causing the same discomfort or being visible.

What kinds of problems can be solved using invisible aligners?

Braces are usually used to solve situations of tooth misalignment. This type of situation, in addition to having a functional impact, can affect the individual’s self-esteem, preventing them from practicing actions as simple as smiling.

Among the clinical situations that invisible aligners can solve are:

ortodontia

Teeth with excessive spacing between them

ortodontia

Overlapping, crowded or crowded teeth

ortodontia

Changes in the occlusion of the jaws, such as having an open or crossbite

ortodontia

Prognathism

How long should invisible aligners be worn?

As a rule, treatment with invisible aligners is quicker than with conventional dental braces. On average, these treatments can last between 6 and 18 months.

However, the length of treatment can vary depending on the severity of the case and the number of hours the patient wears the aligners. This type of appliance, although removable, should only be taken out when eating and brushing your teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

No. The fitting of invisible aligners requires specific certification to ensure that the specialist is qualified to take responsibility for the entire process, from the manufacture of the aligners, the development of the plan, the design of the aligners, the definition of their characteristics and maintenance care.

The price of invisible aligners can vary depending on several factors, five of which stand out:

  • severity of the condition: the more complex the clinical situation, the more expensive the treatment will be, as it will require more time commitment;
  • duration of treatment: the longer the treatment, the more expensive it will be, as it will require more appointments and possibly more subsequent aligners;
  • the need for adjustments: if a lot of adjustments to the aligners are needed during treatment, this will also make the price more expensive, as it will require extra medical appointments;
  • post-treatment care: once the aligners have been removed, you may need some follow-up care, such as wearing a retainer, which will necessarily increase the cost of treatment.
  • professional experience: the patient’s cooperation is very important for the success of this treatment, as is the dentist’s experience. This is because the more accurately the specialist plans, the more successful and accurate the treatment will be, without extensions that represent increased costs.
