What is invisalign (Clear aligner, transparent plaque)?

invisalign treatment is a method applied to align the teeth with a clear aligner. This Invisalign treatment is also called teeth straightening, treatments of clear aligner, transparent plaque, clear braces, invisible braces, teeth aligners. Plastic aligners which are used instead of braces and produced individually, are placed on the teeth. It is tried to close the gaps between the teeth, tooth clenching, incomplete closure of the teeth and tooth crowding with dental plaque, which is not easily noticed because of its transparent appearance and is highly preferred.

Advantages of invisalign treatment?

invisalign treatment is a very common application. Compared to the treatment using metal or porcelain wires, it has some superior aspects. Some advantageous aspects of using clear invisalign braces are listed below:

The patient does not encounter negative events such as the ingrown and breaking of the wires into the palate.

For this reason, the patient will not only know the duration of the treatment in advance, but also will not encounter any surprises in terms of the appearance of his teeth after the treatment.

  • Speech is not adversely affected
  • It has no negative effect on the patient's speech. In other words, the patient does not compromise his comfort while talking, as in the treatment using wire.

The location, size and shape of these fillings are determined at the first meeting. Fillings are painlessly removed from the teeth after invisalign treatment.

  • Transparent plaque is periodically replaced with new ones.
  • Prepared aligners are placed on the patient's teeth by the dentist. The patient uses the plate for 15 days. At the end of this period, the patient starts to use the other plate with different characteristics prepared for him. (Plate replacement periods can also be done at 7 or 10 day intervals)
