CLEAR ORTHODONTICS/ INVISALIGN
Orthodontic treatment without brackets. Performed with transparent splints that are changed according to the movements that are generated to correct the malpositions.
Clear Orthodontics/ Invisalign, what is it?
Clear orthodontics, also known as Invisalign for short, are a popular option for those who want to correct dental alignment and bite problems discreetly and effectively. Unlike traditional braces, clear aligners are made of a clear plastic material and are nearly invisible.
Invisalign treatment begins with a personalized evaluation by the orthodontist, who will create a detailed treatment plan. During treatment, the patient will wear a series of aligners that are changed every two weeks to advance the dental correction process.
Invisalign aligners are custom-made for each patient and fit comfortably over the teeth. As the aligners are changed, the teeth gradually move into their correct position. Patients must wear the aligners for at least 22 hours a day to ensure that treatment is effective.
One of the advantages of clear braces is that the aligners can be removed for eating, brushing and flossing. This means there are no dietary restrictions, and oral hygiene is easier than with traditional braces. In addition, the aligners are soft and do not irritate the gums or tongue, making them more comfortable to wear.
It is important to note that clear braces are not suitable for all patients and each case needs to be evaluated individually by an orthodontist. Patients who have more severe dental alignment or bite problems may require treatment with traditional braces.
In conclusion, clear orthodontics is an effective and discreet option for correcting dental alignment and bite problems. Invisalign clear aligners are custom-made for each patient and fit comfortably over the teeth. If you are interested in clear orthodontic treatment, it is best to consult with our orthodontist for a personalized evaluation to determine if it is the best option for your particular case.
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry dedicated to the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dental malpositions and irregularities in the mandible and jawbone. This specialty is responsible for correcting anomalies in the position of the teeth and the bony structures of the mouth in order to improve masticatory function, facial aesthetics and oral health.
Orthodontics can treat a wide variety of dental problems, such as crowded teeth, crooked teeth, excessive interdental spaces, bite problems, protruding jaws, among others. For this, the orthodontist uses different techniques and appliances, such as brackets, clear aligners, arches, elastics, palatal expanders, among others.
One of the most common orthodontic treatments are brackets, which are small pieces of metal or ceramic that are placed on each tooth and connected to an archwire. The brackets exert constant pressure on the teeth, forcing them to move gradually until they reach the correct position. The brackets are periodically adjusted by the orthodontist to keep the teeth moving in the proper direction.
Another orthodontic treatment option is clear aligners, also known as Invisalign. The aligners are clear plastic sleeves that are placed over the teeth and are changed every two weeks to adjust the position of the teeth. These appliances are removable, which facilitates oral hygiene and allows greater comfort for the patient.
In addition to improving dental and facial aesthetics, orthodontics also has important benefits for oral health. Properly aligned teeth and a proper bite are essential for the correct chewing of food and to avoid digestion problems. Also, correcting dental malpositions helps prevent the accumulation of plaque and tartar, which reduces the risk of tooth cavity, periodontal disease and other dental problems.
In short, orthodontics is a very important dental specialty that is responsible for improving the function, aesthetics and health of the mouth and teeth. If you have any dental problem, do not hesitate to consult with our orthodontist for guidance on the most appropriate treatment for you.
