Invisible aligners are the most comfortable and most hygienic way to address orthodontic problems. A series of invisible aligners will be made for you and each will shift your teeth a little bit more, until the desired position is reached.
Invisible aligners can be removed while eating, drinking or brushing, making it easy to keep them clean. They should be worn for at least 22 hours a day though, to give you the perfect result. The usual treatment time with aligners is 6-13 months.
While the splints do not need activation as such, it is essential that you attend your regular check-ups to track your progress and to take new impressions for the next steps.
At our clinic we work with Happy Smile and Clear Aligner brands.
Made of transparent plastic, these aligners are barely visible. As they are easily removable, you will be able to eat, speak and smile confidently during your treatment. The aligners do not require brackets or wires, thus you will feel almost nothing while wearing them.
After your first consultation, your orthodontist will take an impression of your teeth to prepare tailor-made splints for you. One treatment stage lasts for 1 month, during which you will get 3 splints, each to be worn for a week (the 3rd one for two weeks). Once the first stage is over, a new impression will be taken to continue with the second set of splints.
Once your teeth are aligned and you no longer have to wear your splints, you will be provided with retainers to keep your teeth in position.
Happy Smile invisible aligners work the same way as Clear Aligners, with a slight difference.
The procedure starts with an impression, just as with Clear Aligner.
The difference is that with this system, all the splints are designed digitally in advance, so you can see the end result before starting the treatment. All steps of the treatment will be presented in detail via a special 3D software, so you can see how many splints you will need to achieve your dream smile.
Each splint is to be worn for 2 weeks, after which you can skip to the next one. You can have all your splints in advance, so you can simply change to the next one when a stage is ready. Just as with Clear Aligners, these splints also have to be worn for 22 hours a day, taking them out for eating and brushing only. Regular monthly check- ups are also required to monitor your progress.
The active treatment period will be continued with retention, with either fixed, or removable retainers.
