Transparent Plaque Orthodontics (invisalign)

Transparent Aligner Orthodontics 

Clear aligner orthodontic treatment is one of the cutting-edge methods developed in this field. Orthodontic treatment is applied to the patient without wire application, in addition to wearing specially manufactured transparent plaques. The reason why transparent plaque is preferred is that it is not clear that the treatment is done while the deformity of the teeth is corrected. The treatment is an application that is applied to all age groups, from children to young people and adults. Whether you are suitable for treatment is finalized after your first examination with your dentist. Moderate and mild tooth distortions can be eliminated with this treatment.

If the tooth is pulled out, clear plaque orthodontic treatment cannot be applied. In addition, it is considered that when technology advances and there are developments in this field, the teeth that need to be extracted can be saved with this treatment method. 

When you are examined by your dentist, he will take measurements to place the clear plaques on your teeth. The measurements taken can be viewed in the computer environment by 3D scanning. In computer simulation, the shape of the teeth is determined by moving them both in plaque application and after treatment.

Transparent plaques (Aligners) are produced in the direction of the desired movement of the teeth. Each plaque provides 0.5-1.0 mm of movement in the tooth. plaques should be worn for 15 days, then the other plaque should be changed. Force is applied to move the teeth. For this reason, it is necessary to apply domination while the plaques are installed. Pain may occur when the plaques move to the tooth for the first time. Over time, this pain will go away.
