Advantages of invisible alignment

How many times have we heard people say that they would undergo orthodontic treatment but are bothered by the idea of having 'hardware' in their mouth? How many patients have I heard say during the consultation, 'Everything you've told me has been perfect, Doctor, but I don't like the idea of getting braces because they are very noticeable.'


You may have heard about aesthetic alternatives for teeth alignment, and today I'm going to tell you a bit about a technique that is already widely known and delivers excellent results: orthodontic aligners, or as we commonly call them, 'Invisible Orthodontics.'

These are removable devices (not attached), virtually transparent, that progressively reposition the teeth with excellent results.


  1. The aligners can be removed for eating, brushing your teeth, or cleaning with floss.

  2. They are changed every two weeks, observing how your teeth gradually move.

  3. It is possible to have control and regulate the progress of alignment.

  4. Results can be seen between 6 months and a year of use.

  5. They are not visible. Most people won't even notice that you are undergoing treatment.

  6. No wires or metal appliances are used that can irritate the soft tissues of the mouth.

  7. It doesn't interfere with the patient's lifestyle.

Thanks to the comfort and ease of use of Invisalign®, without wires or metal appliances that irritate the mouth, it is the preferred alternative to fixed braces and the treatment of choice in many countries.

3 Frequently Asked Questions

  1. If I'm already using a braces alignment system for my teeth, can I use this invisible system? Dr.|A It's important to first determine the condition of your teeth, and from there, we can determine if you are a candidate for this treatment.

  2. If I haven't started my orthodontic treatment and want this option, do I need a new assessment appointment? Dr.|A This option requires a special assessment, so it is necessary to schedule a new assessment to determine if this system is effective in your case.

  3. Does the treatment duration vary between visible and invisible braces? Dr.|A It depends on how disciplined you are with this system. Aligners can be removed for eating and cleaning routines, but it's ideal to wear them for a minimum of 22 hours for the best results. Retainer changes are scheduled every 2 weeks, making it easy to monitor changes. However, it's important to keep in mind that every individual's response may vary.
