They are tailor-made and detailed in precision to ensure an effective result. For each splint, first a model is created the patient does not get, but such model makes it possible to adjust and make the necessary movements of teeth as much effective as possible. After initial inspection and taking impressions, a sophisticated 3D modification of the treatment plan is presented to the patient, explaining exactly how many degrees, millimetres and the direction the tooth is to be moved in.
The mechanism used by Invisalign can handle many of the variations much more advantageously. The fixed braces move the tooth first in one direction and then the other. The Invisalign splint system encircles the tooth and forces it to move according to the splint. Invisalign can even move the teeth 3mm backwards, what the classic fixed braces cannot do.

Normally, it is 30-40 splints. Mostly, the patient changes the splints themselves, at approximately 10-day intervals. The advantage is that there is no need to regularly visit dentistry or orthodontist, and despite that, the movement of the teeth is controlled much more closely than with fixed braces.
Despite the fact that experts recommend moving the teeth first and then perform the prosthetic work, it is possible to balance the teeth with the inserted dental implant. The implant is marked as not to be moved. Thus, computer technology will only work with surrounding teeth when calculating. However, such movement is limited by the position of the dental restoration.
What are your most frequent questions?
In dental practice we recognize several kinds of Invisalign braces.
Comprehensive - the most widely used Invisalign method for common patients
Teen - suitable for children and teenagers and young people whose jaw is still developing
Light - used in cases of slight misalignment of the front teeth or small deviations
Removable Invisalign splints are solid and they accurately encircle teeth. To be able to move from one splint to another after a few days, regular wear is required - i.e. 20-22 hours a day. The tooth needs this time to get relaxed in the bone, move and thus make the necessary move. After this movement occurs (i.e. after 8-10 days), it is possible to proceed to the next splint.
Each set of teeth is different and struggles with various problems and deficiencies. Invisalign is an innovative solution not only for demanding procedures, it can help in a variety of cases. So do not hesitate to contact us and book an appointment, where we will not only present you with all the possibilities, but you will be provided with a lasting and especially quality solution.
