With Invisalign, teeth can be straightened in a relatively short time and without major impairments or visible clasps and brackets. The straightening is carried out with the help of removable splints, which are precisely adapted to the teeth and are almost invisible. These so-called aligners are everyday-friendly and rarely cause restrictions.
The splints are exchanged every two weeks and straighten the teeth step by step. The first results are already visible after a few weeks, whereby the teeth are treated gently. The treatment takes place over a longer period of time until the desired position of the teeth is reached.
Which corrections of misalignments are possible with Invisalign?
- Tooth gaps
- Open bite
What are the differences to conventional tooth correction?
If misaligned teeth are treated conventionally, brackets (fixed braces) are usually used. Invisalign, on the other hand, consists of barely visible, removable aligners. The transparent aligners are individually adapted and made from a special high-tech material.
The splint sets are changed every two weeks. The range of motion is precisely tailored to the respective treatment level. Invisalign is very everyday-friendly, as the splints can be removed for meals or important appointments. In addition, they hardly hinder the user when speaking.
Advantages of Invisalign at a glance:
- Transparent material – for more freedom in everyday life
- Removable splints – for less restrictions when brushing your teeth or eating
- Very comfortable to wear – for less discomfort when carrying or speaking
- Exact fit – use of high-tech material for customization
For whom is Invisalign treatment suitable?
Modern tooth correction is possible at any age and is also not a problem for children and adolescents.
Who will pay for the treatment?
Invisalign treatment is usually not covered by statutory health insurance. The users have to bear the costs of the treatment themselves.
Course of treatment with Invisalign
Advice and diagnostics
After a first detailed consultation, an examination is carried out using modern measuring methods and a 3D scan of the teeth. Everything is done without the usual impression of the teeth.
Planning the treatment
When creating an individual treatment plan, possible treatment results are created with the help of a 3D simulation. Then the first rails are made to fit perfectly.
Days of the rails
The aligners must be worn every day, at best for 20 to 22 hours. This is the only way to achieve maximum and rapid success. After about two weeks, the first rail set is exchanged for the next. The fit is very individual and tailored to the progress of the treatment.
Duration of treatment
Smaller misalignments can be corrected with a treatment period of approx. 6 months, with larger misalignments the time can be significantly longer. However, the duration of treatment tends to be shorter than that of conventional orthodontic treatment. The progress of treatment should be checked in the practice every six to eight weeks.
