The Magic of a Smile

Invisalign

Invisalign is an orthodontic technique involving a series of clear aligners which move teeth progressively, until they reach the desired position. It represents an aesthetic alternative to the classic fixed appliance and is particularly appropriate for adult patients that do not want to alter their appearance with the traditional orthodontic appliances.

Invisalign acts through a highly technological system: through the employment of computerized 3D software, a treatment simulation is initially realized (Clin Check): this simulation can be studied with the patient before the treatment begins, showing the teeth as they will appear once the treatment is concluded. Tooth movement is carefully controlled: extent and timing of every single movement is established by the Doctor during the virtual treatment simulation analysis, carrying out all necessary adjustments.

At the end of the analysis phase, and once the treatment has been confirmed, Invisalign produces, by means of a highly technological system (stereolithography), all the aligners customized for each patient.
Invisalign clear aligners are realized accurately in polymeric material, resulting in an extremely comfortable experience for the patient. They are invisible and removable: so is it possible to take them out to eat and drink during treatment; in the same way it is possible to brush teeth and floss without impediments. Metallic brackets or wires are absent from the mouth; this is why treatment time for check-ups and adjustments is reduced.

Every Invisalign aligner must be worn 22 hours per day for a full 14 days, before being substituted with the following: numbers of aligners and consequent total treatment time depends on case difficulty and on every movement rate assigned by the Doctor to every single movement. Generally the extent of a treatment is between 10 and 20 months, in which checks in the Orthodontic office are performed every 6 weeks to verify that treatment is proceeding as initially planned.
