Teeth Straightening And Invisalign In Panama

Teeth Straightening & Invisalign

What is Invisalign treatment?
Invisalign treatment uses clear, removable aligners, which straighten your smile discretely. With no wires or brackets, they’re a discreet alternative to conventional fixed braces.

The aligners are made from a flexible plastic material and custom-made to fit your mouth. You’ll have a series of aligner sets that are changed every week, until you achieve your final result.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Virtually invisible:
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners don’t use wires or brackets and are barely noticeable. They are thin, transparent and custom-made to fit your mouth.
Quick results: The system can correct several orthodontic issues to give you a balanced, straight smile in as little as six months1.
Removable: Invisalign aligners are removable, so you’ll find it easy to brush and eat normally during treatment.
Comfortable: The aligners are more comfortable than traditional braces2. They’re flexible and custom-made for a comfortable fit.
See your finished smile: Some of our dentists use 3D imaging technology, to assess your teeth and create your customised aligners. Before your treatment even starts, you’ll be able to see how your straighter smile will look.

The Process of Teeth Straightening and Invisalign in Panama

Though some people think that Invisalign is simply a retainer, this is not the case. At the end of the treatment, we will give the patient a retainer to wear in order to ensure that the teeth remain in place. However, while straightening the patient’s teeth, the patient will be wearing a series of aligners. The aligners are a high-tech solution that we create with the use of computer imaging software to predict how the teeth will move.

Each aligner only moves the teeth slightly, so the next one in the series has to build upon what the last one did, and so on. This makes it important to wear the aligners in order. Each time that a patient puts one on, it will feel tight, making the teeth slightly sore. After a while, it will start to feel loose, meaning that it is time to wear the next one in the series. Once a patient goes through all of the aligners, the teeth will most likely be perfectly straight.

The Timeframe
While we would love to say that Invisalign can straighten teeth faster than braces, this is not necessarily the case. The length of time it takes to straighten teeth will depend on what the treatment does overall. It may take less time in that the patient does not have to wait for orthodontics treatments to make adjustments to the wires.

However, teeth must move in a set fashion and people who attempt to speed it up can cause unnecessary irritation or damage to the roots. In order to avoid that, we must move the teeth gradually. When a patient comes in for a consultation, we can discuss his or her treatment plan and how long it is likely to take.

The Cost
As an Invisalign dentist, we have found that some people are concerned about how much it will cost to straighten their teeth. While there is a common misconception that Invisalign is expensive, it can actually be fairly affordable, and if one can afford braces, then one should be able to afford this solution as well.

When a patient comes in for a consultation, the patient needs to let us know if there are any payment arrangements we need to make, and we will be happy to discuss options with the patient.
