The basis of orthodontics is to straighten crooked teeth
Depending on the case to be treated, the movement of the teeth can be achieved through removable appliances or fixed appliances called “brackets”.
Orthodontics is responsible for the prevention and treatment of the position and formation of dentomaxillofacial structures, in order to prevent and correct alterations in them.
Orthodontics can be performed both in children and adults, in our clinic we have Dr. Lourdes Acosta Medina, specialist in orthodontics offering traditional orthodontics and innovative methods such as: “invisibles” (Ceramic Brackets), Alineadent and “Incognito” ( Lingual Orthodontics).
In children, the timing of orthodontic placement is important. Often the orthodontist will take advantage of the bone and facial growth of the child / adolescent to obtain the best results.
The Invisalign treatment consists of a series of practically invisible and removable aligners that are changed every two weeks by a new set of aligners. Each of the aligners is manufactured specifically for your teeth, and only for your teeth. As you change aligner, your teeth will move, little by little, weeks after week, until they are aligned and in the final position prescribed by the dentist.
In addition, a 3D virtual treatment plan (thanks to the ClinCheck® software) shows you the movements that your teeth will follow during treatment. This lets you know from the beginning how your teeth will look at the end of treatment. From the results of the ClinCheck program, transparent and custom-made aligners will be manufactured, specifically for you.
If you’re ready for a smile that will change your appearance, Invisalign is the answer you’ve been waiting for. Although there are many options in the market, there is no treatment as comfortable as Invisalign.
In lingual orthodontics the brackets adhere to the internal surface of the teeth. The Incognito ™ system is a true technological revolution, completely different from traditional linguistic techniques. A 3D image of the mouth is obtained, and the brackets are designed by computer for each of the teeth. At the same time, the individualized wire archwires are manufactured for each patient, which allows for predictable results and efficient and effective treatment.
Unlike transparent aligners, the Incognito ™ system can be used to treat the vast majority of orthodontic cases.
Incognito is the modern and invisible alternative to conventional appliances.
The incognito lingual orthodontics is totally invisible because the placement of the brackets is done on the lingual face of the teeth.
It is the ideal alternative for adult patients who want to achieve an attractive and functional smile without displaying the devices during the duration of the treatment, and not affected in any way their work life and social relationships.
