What are braces?
Braces are used to correct bite issues (such as open bite, crossbite or overbite), functional problems and aesthetic issues too. Invisible braces can be used in childhood, but their disceet appearance makes them very popular among adults too. In some cases, oral surgery is needed before the placement of the braces, but with modern techniques extraction can be avoided more and more often.
Invisible braces use a modern technology, combining the advantages of fixed braces and removable retainers, which makes it possible to correct the position of the patient’s teeth discreetly. Invisible braces are most suited to correct smaller, aesthetic problems. More complex bite issues or functional problems cannot be fixed with invisible braces, therefore they are mostly recommended for adults.
Invisible braces are most popular among adults, since many of them find wearing traditional metal braces embarassing at their age. Invisible braces are not only impossible to notice, but they can also be removed for a couple of hours per day. The treatment usually last between 10 and 24 months. Invisible braces are a more gentle solution than traditional braces as the appliance isn’t made of metal.

Before starting the treatment, the orhodontist takes a special impression of the teeth and the cast is sent to our dental laboratory where the splints are prepared. During the consultation an x-ray is made and the bite is thoroughly examined to make the treatment plan as precise as possible.
The splints are made of a special, thin, medical grade plastic which doesn’t raise any health concern with normal use. A splint is usually worn for about 10-14 days, after which the patient should be able to place it on and remove it with ease. This shows that the teeth have been shifted by the splint, and the patient is ready to move on to the next splint. The exact frequency of changing the splints will be indicated by the dentist during the planning.
