What is Invisalign?
Invisalign are plastic, transparent overlays, also called aligners, used for straightening teeth and correcting malocclusion. Invisalign braces have been our specialty since 2008.
Treatment begins with a digital scan of the patient's teeth. Using the three-dimensional model, the dentist creates a complete plan of teeth straightening, including the shift from the initial to the desired position. The knowledge and experience of the doctor is extremely important here, as he has to predict and design all the necessary movements of the teeth in advance.
The great advantage of this technique is the ability to present a visualization of the final result even before the treatment begins. You can see how your new, dream smile will look like and check whether it meets your expectations. We make the visualization for you at no extra cost!
Once the treatment plan is approved, we order a set of Invisalign aligners that are individually tailored to the individual patient's bite, and gradually move the teeth. Each aligner from the set should be worn for about a week and replaced until the desired tooth alignment is achieved.
Unlike fixed braces, Invisalign aligners are practically invisible after being put on, additionally they can be taken off and put back on at any time, which definitely increases the patient's comfort. It is important that they should be used for about 20 hours a day.
Invisalign transparent aligners are a very precise, digital tool which, in the hands of an experienced orthodontist, can cure even very difficult malocclusions. However, remember that the final result depends on the skills and experience of the orthodontist as well as cooperation and commitment of the patient. Together, we can achieve a new, beautiful smile, which will change your life. Regain your self-confidence and smile widely!

How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign aligners move your teeth by applying controlled pressure of the right amount of force, which moves your teeth into the position specified by your doctor. Unlike traditional braces, each Invisalign arch works not only in the right place, but also for the appropriate length of time.
