A smile with straight teeth is always attractive and seductive, reflecting a sense of confidence. Many people may not consider having their teeth straightened, since the most common method are classic braces, which are not aesthetically pleasing and make the user feel particularly uncomfortable when they need to be placed in adult life. This concern now a thing of the past with the revolutionary method of invisible braces. In DENTAL PEARLS we use Invisalign.
Invisible braces are essentially transparent braces, placed on the upper or lower jaw or both jaws simultaneously and changed every 1-2 weeks for a period of 3 months to 1.5-2 years depending on the severity of the problem.
- These fit precisely on the teeth
- They are invisible
- Each aligner moves teeth within 1-2 weeks
Following this, the first aligners are replaced by the second ones, which last for another 2 weeks. This process continues until we achieve the desired result.
Because the process of designing the treatment and constructing the aligners is carried out by computer, we can see the result that is being sought after before the treatment can even begin.
At the same time, we are able to precisely know the time it takes to complete the treatment.
In order to achieve the desired result, a basic condition is that the patient wears their aligners continuously and only removes them for cleaning and eating.
Invisible braces and benefits
- They provide cure for crooked teeth and they nearly not visible by other people
- They do not interfere with speech and are used in a short period of time.
- Invisible braces are applied and removed very easily and quickly, without causing any pain or squeezing the tongue
- Invisible braces provide better oral hygiene, as they are easily removed to brush the teeth correctly and over the entire teeth surface
Duration of treatment
Depending on the size of the problem, the number of aligners to be used is selected, and each one of them should be worn for at least 1-2 weeks. Each treatment lasts from 3 months to 1.5-2 years. This varies depending on the extent of the problem, the age and whether the patient conforms to the dentist’s instructions.
Aligners should never be removed and may only be removed for eating and brushing the teeth. Once a month, the patient should visit the dentist for a checkup.
Until what age can one use aligners?
There is no age limit to start orthodontics. The main prerequisite is good dental and periodontal tissue health.
How much do invisible braces cost?
The cost depends on the type of the problem and the duration of the treatment. At the first date the final cost for invisible braces is calculated. As compared to classic braces, the cost is usually higher.
