Wha é is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a clear alternative to conventional treatment with brackets and even lingual orthodontics. It is a series of aligners virtually clear that we are going to move the teeth of a smooth and comfortable way.

The steps for making Invisalign treatment consists first make a good diagnosis and a treatment plan. This diagnosis and treatment plan sent to the United States where we return a 3D software to scan the patient's teeth. This will allow us to visualize the different stages of treatment and especially the outcome so that we can design the final smile 3D. Once we like the result we propose this will become physical aligners polyurethane go changing every 15 days.


Wha é advantages of Invisalign?

The advantages of Invisalign treatment over conventional treatment with brackets are basically four.

The first, most obvious, aesthetic type. The treatment is virtually invisible aligners and this can help in social relationships, feel better, safer and even improve self-esteem.

The second advantage, biological, smooth motion would refer to only 40 grams of force exerted on each tooth and a quarter of a millimeter of movement of an aligner to another. This affects an absence of pain.

The third advantage, for me very important, would refer to the hygiene. Being a removable treatment allows us to breakfast, lunch and dinner without the appliance and have after a dental hygiene or not any appliance llevásemos. Power floss and brush normally.

Finally, and also by the fact of being removable, does not cause any limitation as to the type of food, there would be no rubbing and thus virtually eliminate emergencies.


Are m s at long invisalign treatments?

Invisalign treatments are no longer than with a conventional orthodontic. The movements are gentle but steady. Being a smooth movement allows replacing the aligners every 15 days, compared to conventional orthodontic wires that makes us wait one month until the bone heals the previous movement. So we could say that the treatments are the same or even shorter than the brackets.


Wh a t is the future of Invisalign orthodontics?

In conclusion I would say that with Invisalign are facing a clear alternative to conventional treatments with braces and Invisalign if he wanted to emphasize that no longer a Supplied tools where the most important is the specialist, in this case the orthodontist, to be authentic conductor of everything that we plan and perform the aligners. I think that we have a great future and I would say more, a great present in orthodontic treatments.
