Invisalign is a modern orthodontic appliance in the form of a customized set of overlays made of a special type of transparent plastic. Unlike traditional, metal appliances, it is virtually invisible when worn. In addition, it can be removed by the patient during meals, which definitely makes the maintenance of oral hygiene easier.
Orthodontic treatment no longer requires the use of traditional metal wired braces. Increasingly, we can choose alternative: special invisible aligners. They work just like traditional braces, however they have one major advantage…. invisibility. The popularity of invisible orthodontics spread to Poland from the USA. This method of teeth alignment has already been used by celebrities such as Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus.
Until recently, the only way to have an ideal smile was wearing conspicuous metal braces for long periods of time. This is changing now. Orthodontic treatment using splints invisible for the naked eye is now becoming increasingly popular.
This method arrived to Poland from overseas where it was popularized by celebrities, who wanted to improve their appearance in a discreet way.
Nobody will see a splint placed on the teeth with the naked eye, even if you smile. It works discreetly while straightening teeth in a way invisible to anybody. However, the results of the transparent aligner work are the same as that of conventional orthodontic braces.
Aligners made of flexible, soft material are custom-made in line with the bite on the basis of digital models.
During treatment, the patient wears from 12 to 48 of such splints until the teeth are completely aligned. This number depends on the complexity of malocclusion.
Invisibility and precise fit are not the only advantages of these splints. Invisalign aligner is designed to be worn from 20 to 22 hours a day. Moreover, we can easily remove it at any time, for instance, before eating, brushing teeth, or an important meeting.
