Candidates for orthodontic treatment

Orthodontic treatment can generally be performed on both children and adults, with a high degree of safety and guaranteed effectiveness.

However, it is always necessary to carry out an evaluation consultation for the clinical diagnosis to be carried out in order to identify the most appropriate solution for your case.

Types of orthodontic appliances

Transparent Dental Braces - Invisible Orthodontics (Invisalign/Spark)

These transparent dental appliances are made up of sets of aligners (trays that fit the teeth), transparent and removable, which allow the patient to use them more comfortably.

Traditional Fixed Dental Braces

Consisting of metal arches and brackets, which, through directional pressure allow changes in the position of the teeth.

This lasts approximately 18 to 24 months (it may vary from case to case), with monthly consultations for adjustments to the dental device and replacement of elastics.

Its main advantages are the effectiveness in the results obtained and a lower cost compared to other alternatives.

Its disadvantages are the aesthetic appearance of metallic brakets and some risk of lesions on the lip and cheeks at the early stage.

Removable Dental Braces

This type of removable appliance is generally used in children up to 12 years of age or as a final complement to fixed orthodontic treatment, in order to maintain the results.

As the name implies, they are removable; they can be removed for meals and for daily oral hygiene, being composed of an acrylic or plastic and metal base that will fit on the teeth.

The duration of treatment will depend on its purpose as they can have different purposes.
