Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment method. It has clear advantages over all bite adjustment methods such as dental braces: full psychological and physical comfort throughout the treatment period, perfect appearance, simplicity and convenience of wearing and care, correspondence to the highest sanitary standards, great results (ideal tooth alignment), absence of complications, and shorter treatment time.

What is the Invisalign treatment?

  • Invisalign is a method for tooth movement in the desired direction developed by Align Technology (United States). This method makes it possible to strengthen your teeth and to create a beautiful smile.
  • Invisalign is a series of removable and virtually invisible aligners specifically designed for patients with aesthetically imperfect denture: malocclusions or malaligned teeth.
  • This treatment is for adults only.
  • Specifically designed software (ClinCheck) visualizes in 3D the changes with a patient's teeth during and after the treatment. It shows the movement of teeth in the desired direction and ideal teeth alignment to create a Hollywood smile.
  • This treatment is more expensive than the standard orthodontic treatment with brackets, but the process and result will exceed your expectations.

How Invisalign system works?

The system consists of a series of removable clear aligners, which move your teeth over small distances in the desired direction. Some patients will also need attachments that help to direct the movement. Aligners are used in pairs, one for the upper jaw and one for the lower. Each aligner completely covers your teeth and is virtually invisible. Your dentist will provide you with the aligner wearing instructions.

How Invisalign treatment proceeds?

  • A patient undergoes a series of tests including thorough examination, diagnosis (when required, oral cavity cleaning), x-ray analysis, photography, and modeling;
  • our dentist takes upper and lower impressions and sends them to the American laboratory together with the description and comments;
  • ClinCheck allows the patient to visualize in 3D the transformations with his/her teeth during the treatment and to see the ultimate teeth alignment;
  • if the patient is satisfied with the simulated result, the laboratory fabricates the aligners and sends them to the dentist. The total number of aligners varies depending on the complexity of orthodontic problems;
  • our dentist installs the aligners and instructs the patient; roughly every two weeks the aligner set is replaced with the next one to direct further alignment in the desired direction;
  • aligners should be worn 20--22 hours a day, except when eating and cleaning teeth;
  • depending on the clinical severity, the treatment can last from 6 to 24 months.

Advantages of Invisalign treatment:

  • aligners are virtually invisible, and the treatment will be easy for you and unnoticed for people around you;
  • aligners are convenient and easy to use, the require no extra care and are replaced each two weeks;
  • for your comfort, there are no wires and bracket edges; aligners can be removed when eating; articulation does not change;
  • oral hygiene remains the same during the treatment (brushing and flossing), while during the treatment with brackets these procedures require more time and patience;
  • the treatment can be combined with bleaching and drug applications.
