How does Invisalign® work?

Invisible orthodontics is a modern and highly requested treatment today. Its discretion and magnificent results make this method a great option for those who need it. Among the alternatives to invisible orthodontics is Invisalign, the most advanced brand on the market by far. The aligners used are custom-made and transparent, making them practically imperceptible to other people. It is precisely this aesthetic aspect that causes more and more patients to bet on this type of orthodontics.

Invisalign has created a revolutionary trend with invisible braces. It is a safe and effective treatment since it is permanently supervised by specialists through x-rays, scans and photographs. You must bear in mind that the time and the results vary in relation to the patient, but it is important that from the first moment it is known how long it will last and what the result will be.

Step by step of Invisalign treatment:

The Invisalign treatment consists, like any other treatment, in a process where there are certain stages and rules that must be followed:

  • First of all, it is necessary to schedule an appointment with a trusted specialist to provide you with all the corresponding information. The price estimates, treatment time, the options that exist and the final results are details that must be explained in that first meeting.
  • A study will be carried out to be able to see the current state of your teeth and gums, and to know which treatment is indicated for you. In addition, with 3D software we create a virtual treatment in which we simulate the movements of the teeth from their initial position to the desired position. This way you can see the result before it happens.
  • Once the previous steps have been completed, the first Invisalign splint is placed, which is manufactured to suit you by professional orthodontists.
  • You must go to check ups with your specialist in charge. There you will see how your treatment is going, the necessary touch-ups will be made and the following splints will be delivered, planning the next steps.

Invisalign has splints made of plastic materials that are changed every two weeks. In addition to the fact that they are practically not noticeable, they are also removable. This means that you can take it out to eat and brush your teeth, thus providing better dental hygiene.

Low cost invisible aligners: are they an alternative?

Invisalign generated a revolution with invisible aligners, and that revolution brought with it low cost aligners, which are, in many cases, cheap copies that could end up harming the patient. Many companies have dedicated themselves to creating this type of aligners with a “do it yourself” methodology, without professional controls at any stage of the process, which can be dangerous and not beneficial. A bad treatment is capable of generating problems such as dental injuries, occlusion difficulties or jaw wear.

Very shortly, you should know that only with a correct diagnosis it will be possible to find the appropriate solution. The result will always depend on the plan designed by the professional, so this step is essential, and low cost aligners do not do it. A specialist is the only person who can plan any treatment and ensure that it is carried out properly.

Low cost transparent aligners are not an alternative, since they can only bring inconveniences. If you want to improve your aesthetics and dental health, we recommend that you put yourself in the best possible hands.
