Invisalign Clear Aligners
What is it?
This orthodontic system consists of a series of transparent, virtually invisible, removable and comfortable aligners that you can use without anyone noticing.

The aligners are changed every two weeks, and you only take them out for eating, drinking, and brushing teeth. As you get a new set of pairs, a gradual movement of the teeth takes place until reaching the final position that the orthodontist has established. Visits to the specialist will be made every 4 or 6 weeks to change the aligners and assess whether the treatment is progressing correctly. The orthodontic specialist will carry out a thorough study of your case to determine if this treatment is the best option for the correction of your malocclusion.
