Especially recommended whilst teeth are growing, as well as during periods when temporary teeth are replaced by permanent ones.
Possible only after permanent teeth are established.
Involves two treatment phases:
Above mentioned phases last about the same amount of time and are equally important.
There are two types of fixed braces treatment depending on lock placement – outside or inside fixture. There is also a difference in the material used, type of manufacturing and treatment planning:
Includes all braces fixed to the teeth on the outside (metal, ceramic, sapphire, …)
The only available brand at present is INCOGNITO™ which is precisely made to fit the individual patient and his/her type of teeth defect. Digital technology CAD/CAM is used to manufacture these types of braces. Precision demands the braces to be cast from gold alloy, which also minimizes any negative allergic reactions. All the locks are made to messure to fit individual patients and are extremely thin in order to maximize freedom of tongue movement, comfort and discretion.

This type of treatment is also known as “invisible braces”. The Invisalign company manufactures individual sets of transparent foils according to orthodontist’s instructions. These are replaced after each week by the patients themselves. The treatment starts with soft foils, continues with medium and finishes with hard ones.
Teeth move approximately 1mm each month in the desired direction. The length of treatment is similar to fixed braces. Usually, patients need a set of 30-40 foils for each jaw depending on the type of defect. Regular checkups every 6-8 weeks are necessary.
This unique technique is not suitable for all teeth defects. Invisalign could be recommended to adult patients with small esthetic anomalies when there is no need for teeth extraction. Suitability of this treatment is always assessed by the orthodontist.

During orthodontic treatment it is extremely important to keep regular appointments with your dentist. Orthodontic treatment can be only started on patients with healthy teeth and impeccable mouth hygiene.
Treatment continues with regular checkups – fixed braces once in 4-6 weeks, removable braces once in 6-8 weeks.
