This orthodontic treatment is becoming increasingly popular because it is easily adaptable to your lifestyle and does not require wires or metal brackets.
Our orthodontic practice in Brussels is a specialist in this treatment and we will be happy to guide and support you before, during and after it.
Invisible aligners, also called 'Invisalign' are removable transparent plastic aligners, personalized for each patient. They are made from 3D dental scans and allow the teeth to be gradually moved into the correct position. Invisible aligners are a discreet alternative to traditional braces, and they are also more comfortable to wear.
The treatment begins with a consultation with your orthodontist in our dental practice in Uccle-Brussels. The latter will examine your teeth, gums and jawbone to determine if invisible aligners are the best choice for you. If so, he will perform a dental scan to create a 3D model of your mouth. This template will be used to design your custom invisible aligners.
Once the invisible aligners have been fabricated, the patient must wear them for the duration recommended by their orthodontist. As the treatment progresses, the patient changes aligners to allow the teeth to move gradually. Treatment also requires regular appointments to check on progress and adjust when necessary.
The main advantage of invisible aligners, or Invisalign, is their discretion. Unlike traditional braces, invisible aligners are virtually invisible when worn, making them ideal for people who don't want their treatment to be noticeable.
Invisible aligners are also more comfortable to wear than traditional appliances because they don't have any wires or rings that can potentially irritate the mouth.
Additionally, the invisible aligners are removable, which means patients can remove them for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing. This makes treatment more manageable for people with active lifestyles who do not wish to be limited or constrained during their orthodontic treatment.
The duration of treatment with invisible aligners depends on the severity of the malocclusion (poor position of the teeth) and the speed at which the teeth move. In general, the treatment lasts between 6 and 18 months, but this can vary according to individual cases. Regular appointments with our orthodontist are important to monitor progress and ensure treatment is effective. The patient must also commit to wearing the invisible aligners for the recommended length of time to achieve the best results.
