Same as with the braces. Same scans, impressions, calculations, photo report. It is important to take an accurate impression - an impression of your teeth made of silicone. The impression is sent to the lab, where the dental technician makes an impression and places it in the scanner. The model is scanned and displayed in a special program. A computer tomogram of the patient is also fed into the program for more accurate planning. The stages of moving the tooth during an aligner replacement are adjusted - this is how we determine how many splints will be needed by the patient. Usually, several treatment plans are suggested. Together with the patient, we approve one or the other.
Treatment is carried out according to the severity of the orthodontic defect. The mildest ones can be cured in as little as 6 months of treatment. This means that the aligners stay in the mouth for this period of time.
We are often asked how long does it take to fit invisible braces. It usually takes between 2 to 4 weeks from the first visit. First, we will make a treatment plan based on a thorough examination. Precise impressions of all your teeth are sent to our lab, where we fabricate invisible braces to match your teeth.
At the beginning of treatment with invisible braces, part of the speech function is impaired. However, this applies to all types of orthodontic braces. However, the difficulties usually disappear within one to two weeks.
With invisible braces, oral hygiene is a prerequisite for successful treatment. Poor hygiene results in plaque buildup or gingivitis, for example, which prevents tooth mobility. You should also visit your dentist more often for oral hygiene.
