What is Invisalign and how the treatment is?
Invisalign is an American company that has developed software to make these clear aligners. These clear aligners what they do is gradually aligning the teeth go through the treatment plan made by the orthodontist. These aligners must be worn all day except to eat and to drink. The only thing the patient can do with them is to drink water, the rest of any kind of food and drink, the ideal is that the patient always it out. Every 15 days the patient will change the aligners and gradually they move teeth until they reach the position determined by the orthodontist.
In what cases should use?
Today with conventional orthodontic techniques we can treat all cases whatsoever and I daresay with Invisalign, after advances of recent years, we can treat virtually 100% of cases. Ages to use Invisalign as we could tell from the appearance of permanent teeth, around 12 years until for example the oldest patient I have to have 73 years and really with very good results.
What are the advantages?
Invisalign represents several advantages over other types of orthodontic. First, they are aesthetic, are very aesthetic because as clear aligners are virtually no noticeable or are. The second major advantage is that they are very comfortable to wear, do not make you any sore or any chafing and then are very comfortable when eating, just do the have to remove, comes without any appliances and then, after eating , you can brush, you will not accumulate any remaining food as does happen with the brackets, and then after lunch you put them and continue with the treatment, ie, it lets you take your life normally.
Finally the effectiveness. If the patient takes around 20 to 22 hours a day is a treatment that is very effective.
How is this treatment in adults?
Invisalign treatment in adults is convenient, fast, and effective aesthetic. Convenient and fast because when photographically scanned teeth in Orthodontics Tres Torres we do is send it to the US and after 15 days we have all the aligners in clinical. The patient should come to our clinic every month, month and a half and then as the treatment progresses you will be giving the aligners. The great advantage of Invisalign is that they are very aesthetic, removable and fully transparent. This allows for example if the patient has an event or party can remove the aligners, go to the party and after the event or party, as is the relocates. And the truth is that the effectiveness and the results we are having are very good and surprising.
