What are Invisalign aligners?

Invisalign is an alternative dental aligner to traditional orthodontic appliances that allows you to align teeth much more discreetly.

Invisalign does not use brackets or orthodontic wires.


These aligners are sequential, they must be changed on average every 15 days (depending on the case) and must also be used around 22 hours a day.

They are similar to tooth whitening plates, but in the case of Invisalign they are produced with the differentiated material, 'SmartTrack', adding a lot of technology to the orthodontic treatment.

Invisalign aligners are comfortable, invisible and fit your lifestyle!

They can be easily removed for meals and for brushing, as it is removable and more hygienic.

Because they do not use brackets and wires as in conventional orthodontic treatment, aligners have a reduced rate of emergency consultations when compared to conventional techniques.

Como funciona o Invisalign?


The aligners are produced after obtaining an intraoral scanner, photos and radiographs of the patient. Afterwards, the diagnosis is made and the planning is started by the orthodontist using a computerized platform capable of predicting all tooth movements through a specific software from Invisalign called 'ClinCheck'.






Visits to the orthodontist take place every six to eight weeks (2 months) to assess movement and treatment progress. At each visit, the patient receives 3 to 4 new sets of aligners.

The great advantage of the Invisalign system is predictability, as we can know how much treatment time will be needed to achieve the planned result.

After approval of the treatment plan by the patient, the construction of aligners is requested. The material used is the 'SmartTrack' which has full technology that adapts perfectly to the dental contour in a smooth and precise way.

In most cases it is necessary to install 'Attachments' which are geometric shapes in resin (the color of the tooth) bonded to the tooth surfaces, leaving a very discreet appearance. They are very important as they will act as support points for the aligners, providing precision in orthodontic movement.

In some cases it may be necessary to remove the ennamel by interproximal reduction or 'IPR', they are small reductions of enamel between the teeth, being a way to get additional space for tooth alignment, through wear of the enamel, making the teeth slightly smaller. The procedure contributes to the success of dental alignment and also to the stability of the results obtained after orthodontic treatment.

Upon completion of this phase it may be necessary to refine the orthodontic movement obtained, a new digital scan will be requested and a new set of aligners will be delivered to complete the orthodontic treatment phase and for you to have a perfectly aligned smile.

To achieve the stability of the aligned smile obtained, Invisalign has a segment of restraints (removable appliances) with the same technology as the aligners called 'Vivera' restraints that will maintain the results of the treatment performed.
