If you are looking for the most appropriate alternative for your teenager, InvisalignTeen is super effective in guiding the eruption of permanent teeth, as well as addressing other abnormalities.
The first step before beginning treatment is to prepare a customized plan based on the type of problem that exists. To do this, the specialist makes 3D impressions of your teeth with a scanner. These images make it possible to anticipate what your smile will look like when the treatment is finished thanks to an own software called ClinCheck. The results of the scan provide enough data for the laboratory to design the aligners for you.
What are the steps to follow for Invisalign treatment?
The first thing we have to carry out in this process is a diagnosis. To do this we must make a visit with our orthodontic specialist Dr. Gross who will inform you about the steps to follow and what are the possibilities you have.
Secondly, the dentist has to take a sample of your teeth in order to make the splint. In this case, thanks to the technology we have at the Caballero de Rodas Dental Clinic, we have much newer methods such as oral scans, intraoral photographs or three-dimensional radiographs.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Most of the people who choose Invisalign over other alternatives, visible and invisible, do so because of the aesthetics.
Any type of braces usually causes some discomfort due to sores on the tongue, cheeks or lip, unlike transparent aligners, which are painless, although they may cause a little pressure during the first few hours after changing an aligner.
Hygiene and health
This is where Invisalign presents one of its greatest advantages. When removed for eating and drinking, it can be washed with soap and water. After eating, you simply brush your teeth before putting in the aligners. You can eat anything: hard, soft, pasty… Moreover, the risk of caries and gum disease is reduced to a minimum, as well as the dental typical wear of aesthetic ceramic braces.
