The doctor. Francisco Javier Fernández Bozal is a dentist and belongs to Top Doctors, the select circle of top-level doctors in Spain. As an expert in in-visible orthodontics, he will explain the details of this treatment.
What advantages does invisible orthodontics offer?
The main advantage of invisible orthodontics is precisely its invisibility. It allows us to treat the malocclusion of the patient without the orthodontic appliances being perceived by the social environment that surrounds it. It also has other advantages such as when we use invisible aligners, which the patient can remove for dental hygiene, we avoid lesions by decalcification on the surface of the teeth that can then be very unsightly.
Can you correct any deformity?
In general, with invisible devices, any malocclusion can be corrected. There are 2 fundamental types of invisible braces, the lingual orthodontics that are brackets that are placed on the inner surface of the teeth and that practically have the same benefits as the vestibular brackets, and on the other hand we have the transparent aligners that are in continuous evolution and that with some limitations they can also do practically all of the treatments.
In what cases is it indicated?
When we are going to treat a patient with conventional orthodontics or invisible orthodontics what we have to do is a good diagnosis and treatment plan. If the patient is an adult, it is best to place invisible orthodontics to avoid aesthetic problems that can cause the vetibular appliances, but from the treatment plan we have developed we have to decide if your case is more suitable to treat with lingual orthodontics or It can be well treated with orthodontics through invisible aligners of the Invisalign type which is the most popular model.
