Invisible orthodontics is a series of removable and invisible aligners that are custom made for each patient with a transparent plastic material. These move the teeth to the desired position progressively. An aligner can move one or several teeth and must be changed every two weeks to make the intended movements.
For this treatment we apply the latest 3D technology through specialized software, being more precise than other systems.
Braces can be constructed of various types of materials: ceramic and sapphire. The main advantage of aesthetic braces is that they are made of materials very similar to the color of the teeth and therefore go unnoticed. They are indicated in patients with high aesthetic demands.
Ceramic braces lead a longer time of treatment due to the friction between them and the arc. For this reason, we work with ceramic braces with metal groove, so we eliminate the time disadvantage of the treatment.
Sapphire braces are the latest generation in aesthetic braces. Their main advantage is that they are made of monocrystalline ceramic, they provide an optimal aesthetic and are very resistant to fracture.
They are the most common type of braces. They are resistant, safe and reliable. We have “mini” braces that are smaller in size than traditional metal braces.
In order to make a correct and individualized diagnosis of orthodontics of each patient we need a previous study. We analyze the facial proportions, the smile, took models of study, radiographs and photographs both intraoral, face and profile of the patient. With all this information we can offer a diagnosis and an appropriate treatment plan for each patient.
CARE OF THE PATIENT IN ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT
Orthodontists are aware of the sacrifice for the patient to wear orthodontics, but we also know that the effort will have been worth it when the patient sees the new smile. For this reason it is essential that the patient collaborates and has excellent hygiene. There are toothpastes, brushes, mouthwashes and specific floss for orthodontics.
It is also essential to incorporate certain good habits during treatment, such as ceasing onicofagia (biting nails) if there was, nibbling pens, eating chewing gum, dried fruits and hard things in general.
Otherwise, the braces would fall down, lots of complications and the treatment will be prolonged over time. It is important to increase the frequency of visits for cleaning and maintenance of gums, since having braces it is more difficult to brush and the patient is more prone to developing a gingivitis. Therefore, our recommendation is to have a professional oral cleaning at least every 5-6 months.
Sapphire braces are the latest generation in aesthetic braces. They are made of monocrystalline ceramic, they provide an optimal aesthetic and are very resistant to the fracture.
