Poor oral health may be caused by an improper alignment of teeth. Invisalign is an orthodontic solution to correct the bad position of teeth, providing amazing results for millions of users.
The straightening procedure is performed by invisible aligners, which are custom made using 3D technology. The patient is given a package with many custom aligners. Each aligner is meant to be used for 2 weeks on each dental arch. Every 2 weeks, the patient will discard the old aligners and start a new set which will push the teeth to a better position.
Invisalign uses technology as its greatest advantage. This technology understands the movement of teeth, which is determined with accuracy by a computer. The optimal direction, strength of movement and inclination of the teeth is analyzed before the beginning of treatment, allowing a significant reduction in treatment time.
Using 3D images the treatment plan is designed, allowing the orthodontist to see the full process from the initial position of teeth to the final ideal alignment which is the goal to be achieved.
If you are visiting Costa Rica for short business trips, or to visit family or friends, or just because your job requires you to travel often, this may be a great opportunity to get started with your Invisalign orthodontic treatment in Costa Rica.
In those cases where no extra treatment is needed after the first appointment, a full set of aligners can be mailed to the patient. This package includes all of the aligners that are meant to be worn throughout the treatment and the communication between the patient and the orthodontist can be maintained via web.
Every set of aligners need to be worn for 2 weeks. After this time, they need to be replaced by the next set of aligners in the series. As the patient moves forward with the indicated treatment, teeth become more and more aligned until they reach the ideal position.
Orthodontists need to obtain a special qualification to be able to treat patients interested in Invisalign treatment.
