Orthodontic treatments aim to correct the position of bones, jaws and teeth for improved oral and overall health. The most commonly treated conditions are overlapping, protruding, misaligned and unevenly spaced teeth.
Different devices—some simple, others complex—are used for occlusal corrections. They all have the same function: to exert light pressure on teeth and gradually move them to their ideal position. Once the treatment is complete, most patients need a retainer to maintain their beautiful new smile.
Orthodontic procedures aren’t just for children and teenagers anymore. Today, many adults opt for orthodontic procedures.
The duration of a procedure depends on three things:
- Complexity of the problem
- Type of device used
Today’s orthodontic devices are very advanced and some are practically invisible. If you’re looking for a discreet treatment, these are a must for you.
Invisalign offers removable, almost invisible aligners that are very popular with patients.
The first step consists of creating a virtual and sequential model of your transformation, leading all the way until your desired results. This allows you to see the final look before starting the treatment.
Using a 3D printer, each corrective phase is printed into custom-made aligners. Each set of aligners is worn for two weeks. The treatment takes about a year.
Advantages of aligners
- Discreet and comfortable
- Short treatment duration
- No food restrictions
- Easier dental care

Traditional orthodontic devices
Traditional braces are the preferred option for more complex cases. But don’t worry—today’s braces are smaller and more comfortable than ever. There are self-ligating braces, which don’t require rubber bands, as well as clear ceramic braces, which are more fragile but offer a cosmetic advantage.
