What is orthodontics with Invisalign transparent masks?
It is an innovative treatment, developed in recent years, which serves to align the teeth without having to go and apply the classic metal orthodontic attachments.
How does it work?
This happens through the application of very thin transparent masks that will have to be replaced every month until the purpose is reached.
These masks are really invisible, very comfortable and can be removed at any time without removing the smile from anyone, either during treatment or afterwards.
The creation process
First of all, we use a digital 3D technology, scanning the patient’s dental arches after which an orthodontic operation is simulated using state-of-the-art software. With the data obtained, tooth models will be produced on which these transparent masks will be printed, which adapt 100% to the patient’s teeth. These masks will move the teeth with very small and gradual movements.
The masks must be worn every day throughout the day and can only be removed for meals and for brushing and passing the thread.
- They need to be replaced about every 3 weeks for a good result.
- Every month and a half, you’ll have to go to the clinic for a checkup.
- The treatment lasts from 9 to 15 months depending on the case
- The number of masks (aligners) to wear goes from 18 to 30 depending on the case
In which cases can this technique be used?
The use of this technique is increasingly evolving, allowing its use in many cases even for very complex cases.
As a reference you can take a classic orthodontic implant, but in order to provide a precise and specific estimate, we need a 3D scanning control to get a 360 ° overview of the job you need.
