The orthodontist starts the treatment with an accurate diagnosis based on tooth models, facial images and X-rays.
After a thorough analysis, the orthodontist presents the treatment plan and, together with a patient, chooses the type of orthodontic appliance. Throughout the entire treatment, a patient is under the care of the attending doctor and a hygienist. Using advanced 3D imaging technology, the Invisalign method creates a complete plan for straightening the teeth, taking into account the shift from the initial to the desired position based on the Invisalign doctor’s recommendations.
A set of aligners specially adapted to a particular patient’s teeth is prepared, which gradually moves the teeth. Each set is worn for about two weeks and replaced with new ones until the desired teeth setting is achieved. The orthodontist prepares the Invisalign treatment plan based on the individual patient’s needs.
Invisalign aligners are almost transparent. No one will even notice the transparent, smooth Invisalign aligners on your teeth so that you can wear them in any situation, every day.
The aligners are removable, so there are no restrictions on the products you can eat and drink. They can also be removed for brushing and flossing to maintain good oral hygiene.
Unlike traditional fixed metal braces for teeth, the transparent aligners have no brackets or wires. This means less time spent on visits to the dentist who carries out Invisalign treatment.
Invisalign also provides an opportunity to learn about the plan and the final effect of the treatment even before it begins.
Fixed orthodontic braces
Fixed metal braces are used mainly to treat malocclusion in adults and children, who already have all their permanent teeth. It is used to correct bite defects, thanks to which it influences the aesthetics of a smile. Wearing permanent orthodontic braces can also reduce pronunciation defects. It also reduces the risk of dental caries and gum disease. Fixed orthodontic braces works out well both for beauty and health. Furthermore, permanent braces are no longer a reason to be ashamed of, but a fashionable element to boast about. Fixed braces can be selected ideally to suit your needs, thanks to the variety of available models. There are traditional metal braces with colorful ligatures as well as very discreet aesthetic braces. This allows everyone to find something for themselves!
Discreet aesthetic orthodontic appliances
Porcelain orthodontic braces have brackets in a milky color similar to their teeth, which makes them almost invisible. It guarantees high aesthetics and discretion if you don’t want your braces to be visible. Porcelain orthodontic braces are also resistant to damage. Permanent self-ligaturing orthodontic braces are available in metal and cosmetic versions. It is a very convenient type of permanent braces because it requires fewer visits to the orthodontist compared to the standard model, equipped with tabs or precison attachements, thanks to which friction is smaller and therefore it is less painful. These fixed braces also makes it easier to take care of oral hygiene.
Cosmetic braces (sapphire)
Cosmetic braces, also called sapphire, are popular orthodontic solutions created for the most demanding patients. It differes from traditional braces because instead of classic metal brackets, they have brackets made of ceramic crystal, which is almost entirely transparent. Thanks to that, the appliance is practically invisible at first glance. In terms of construction, they are very similar to orthodontic solutions known for many years. Sapphire brackets are stuck to teeth with a special glue and then connected with a metal arch.
A definite advantage of such a solution is that it is much more difficult to notice the cosmetic appliance, which has a positive impact on the patient’s comfort and confidence. The main disadvantage of cosmetic devices should also be remembered – due to the specific nature of the material used, the risk of possible cracks and damage increases. Together with the necessity of possible repairs, the patient’s treatment may be longer than in the case of the traditional solution.
Why is it worth wearing braces?
Bite defects are a common problem both in children and adults. Consultations are carried out at all ages for prophylactic, aesthetic, and health reasons.Misaligned teeth lead to pathological changes in dentition and occlusion, which can be eliminated using appropriate orthodontic appliance. In adults, changes in the jaw and teeth area may appear, radiating towards the temples, causing headaches. Other ailments include breathing difficulties, speech, and chewing disorders.
