Invisible aligners, also called clear aligners, are a type of orthodontic treatment that corrects misaligned or crooked teeth. They are a virtually invisible and removable alternative to braces designed around convenience and flexibility.
They use gentle and constant force to move the teeth in the required position without going through the hassles of metal wires and brackets.
Like traditional braces, Invisible dental aligner in Panama are designed to move teeth a little at a time. The aligners are plastic replicas of your teeth made from a 3D intraoral scan of your mouth and fabricated specially for you. There are many brands, but at Dental One we usually work with Invisalign, wich is the global leader on this technology.
Clear aligners are one of many technological advancements that have made orthodontic treatment less conspicuous, move teeth and align jaws to create a healthy and beautiful smile.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can anyone get teeth aligners?
Clear Aligners are an ideal orthodontic treatment for people of all ages. However, compliance is an issue in the case of children.
The results are permanent only if patients practice proper aftercare. There is a natural tendency for teeth to relapse after teeth aligners are removed; also, dental shifting is part of the human aging process. Ideally, retainers are used to avoid any chances of relapse. Patients can either opt for either fixed or removable retainers to ensure the results are permanent.
What can Clear Aligners Treat?
Clear aligners, such as Invisalign, can treat a variety of different cases, including:
· Crowded teeth — when the teeth overlap
· Overbites — when the upper front teeth overlap with the lower front teeth
· Underbites — when the lower front teeth overlap with the upper front teeth
· Diastemas — when there are small or large gaps between the teeth
· Open bites — when the front upper and lower teeth slant outward and do not touch when the mouth is shut.
· Misaligned primary (baby) teeth —Children starting at 6 years of age are candidates for this treatment also. As well as adults.
Invisalign is now the most popular and widely-known clear aligner available. Invisalign aligners are made from SmartTrack® material that is specifically engineered for the Invisalign system.
The material claims to provide a more accurate, comfortable, and quicker treatment experience than other clear aligners on the market. In fact, Invisalign treatment time is up to 50% faster with 75% more teeth straightening predictability.
Clear Aligners Treatment Plan
Each aligner is custom made for each patient through a digital scan. This is achieved by digitally capturing impression and processing the information using specialized software, and then the milling machine at Invisalign automatically custom fabricates the set of trays for you.
From that information, the orthodontist can arrive at a diagnosis, and then work within the aligner software to design your smile and plan the treatment process – which tooth moves where, and in what order – guiding teeth into healthy positions.
On average, a person needs approximately 25-40 sets for complete alignment.
Most people see their orthodontist for a check-up about every six-to-ten weeks.
It is recommended aligners be worn 22 hours a day, or as prescribed by the orthodontist. Each set of aligners is worn for two weeks approximately before going to the next set.
Over time, teeth reach their ideal places, according to the orthodontist’s plan and the patient’s cooperation. The total number of aligners will vary by the needs of each patient.
