Invisalign System in Faro
The dental clinic Atelier do Sorriso, in Almancil, located 13 minutes from the center of Faro, offers the specialty of invisible orthodontics through the revolutionary Invisalign® system, that aligns the teeth imperceptibly and quickly.
But what is Invisalign?
Invisalign® is the most popular clear aligner system on the market! It aligns crooked teeth invisibly, working as an alternative to conventional fixed dental braces. Its main characteristic is, as the name indicates, not being noticeable at the usual socializing distance. But be aware that this is not exactly a transparent appliance, but rather a series of invisible and removable aligners or braces that you can gradually place to straighten your teeth.
How does Invisalign work on our clinic in Faro?
Just like anywhere else in the world! Week after week, Invisalign moves misaligned teeth into their correct position, progressively, and often in less time than traditional braces.
What is the difference between Invisalign aligners and conventional fixed dental appliances?
Some are super discreet, made of clear plastic, and the others are made of metal with colored brackets? Well, that’s not the only difference. Although both move the teeth through controlled movements, the clear aligners not only control the amount of movement originated by each aligner, but also control the moment when the movement occurs, so that only certain teeth move at each stage, according to the Invisalign® treatment plan. With conventional braces, the force application system is not as efficient, so the patient may have to wear braces for longer.
Who can wear clear braces with Invisalign?
Any type of person, of any age, can align their teeth with Invisalign, all you need to do is find a dental clinic in Faro (or in your area of residence) that works with this system.
What type of problems does Invisalign treatment in the Algarve solve?
It solves both mild corrective problems and more complex corrective problems: from crooked teeth to widely spaced teeth, including crowded teeth, deep bite, cross bite, open bite and prognathism.
Phases of the Invisalign treatment in Faro
- The Invisalign treatment in the Algarve begins with a diagnostic consultation so that one of our specialized orthodontic dentists can provide a personalized treatment program, after a full scan of your mouth! This program is based on a digital planning with all the steps of the process, movement of the teeth and the number of aligners necessary to obtain the desired result.
- Then, a personalized animation of the teeth movement is performed thanks to 3D computerized technology, which allows you to see the final result… before the first aligner is placed!
- If you like and approve of what you see in the 3D animation, several clear aligners are then designed, made with smart-track, a semi-flexible transparent plastic that, although practically invisible when worn, is very strong and durable. These aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth and will usually be worn for one or two weeks before being replaced by the next and so on until the end of the Invisalign treatment.
- Finally, your first invisible braces are placed at an Invisalign appointment in the Algarve, where you will also be given one or two extra sets of aligners to exchange at home on the date agreed with our dentist and thus avoid a further appointment.
How long does the Invisalign treatment take?
The duration of treatment with Invisalign in Faro depends on the complexity of the case, but in a first assessment appointment at Atelier do Sorriso you can find out how long you will have to wear the clear aligners. In principle, this can take between 3 to 18 months, depending on the severity, but in any case the transparent appliance offers slightly quicker results than metal braces which, on average, take 24 months to correct the incorrect position of the teeth.
To give you an idea, each transparent aligner can move the crooked teeth by about 0.25mm, so if you change the aligner every week, in 4 weeks, for example, the teeth have already moved 1mm, and with 16 aligners, less than 4 months, 4mm!-
