Do you know how does Invisalign work?

We talk a lot about invisible aligners. And you probably know that they are easy to use, have great results and so are seen as the greatest technology when it comes to orthodontic appliances. But, do you know how does Invisalign work? Let’s explain a little to you on today’s blog.

Invisalign: the future of orthodontics

The appliances are traditionally made of metal and fixed on the outside of the teeth. Our clinic is equipped with a variety of other options, including ceramic and tongue appliances (behind teeth) to meet a variety of patient demands.

A constant pressure is applied by the bracket and wire system to gradually move the teeth to their defined position. At the beginning of the 21st century, the orthodontic appliance seemed to be the only option for those who need to straighten and fix their teeth. However, the launch of Invisalign, just before 2.000, transformed the entire industry.

Founded in 1997, the cultural phenomenon triggered by this new treatment option began when two Stanford students with no previous experience in orthodontics created the first metal-free and effective alternative.


How does Invisalign work?

An Invisalign treatment uses transparent plastic aligners. Aligners are custom made for each patient, using a 3D scan of their mouth. The aligners are then produced to gradually move the teeth to the correct position. This innovative and technically advanced alignment system consists of almost invisible transparent trays.

These removable, fully customized trays, or aligners, are meticulously designed. From a highly elastic, transparent and clinically tested material for the best style, discretion, motion control and comfort throughout the treatment.

After an initial digital scan or dental impression of the current positions of the teeth. A digital image of the desired end result is generated. Together, they form the basis for the design of the aligners. Which are changed every 1-2 weeks, gradually straightening their teeth and transforming their smile.

Benefits at the end of dental treatment:

– Aesthetic gains, with teeth well positioned and aligned

– Favored hygiene
