It is now possible to correct the alignment of the teeth, without the use of traditional braces. How is it possible? Thanks to Invisalign technology!

Invisalign consists in using a series of transparent and removable trays, created to fit the patient’s teeth morphology, with the aim of gradually modifying the positioning of the teeth until obtaining an optimal alignment. In the same way as the braces, the trays exert a slight but constant pressure on the teeth.

Each tray is worn for about one to two weeks, then replaced by a new tray. Each new tray is specially designed according to the changes in the alignment that the trays previously carried by the patient will have trained. By continuously replacing the trays over the weeks, the desired result is achieved.

Many advantages

Invisalign treatment offers a wide range of benefits for the patient:

  • The trays are transparent, so they are very discreet;
  • Since they are removable, the trays can be removed during meals. The patient is therefore not
  • subject to dietary restrictions, as is the case with traditional braces;
  • Trays are also easier to clean;
  • Because they are made to measure, the trays are comfortable;
  • Invisalign processing requires fewer visits for device adjustment.

The popularity of Invisalign is constantly increasing as this treatment helps to correct the appearance of a smile in all discretion. It is particularly suitable for adults and adolescents.

If you would like to know how Invisalign could help you have a healthier smile, come and meet Dr. Zilio's team. We will be in a position to determine with you whether this option is convenient for you, and to tell you the length of your treatment, which varies from one patient to another, as well as the costs associated with it.

The digital x-rays

In the same way that X-rays are a key element for your dentist in the diagnosis of many dental pathologies, they are also an essential tool for an orthodontist.

X-rays make it possible to observe the physiognomy of a patient, in a way that it is possible to do it only through these. The orthodontist can then observe how the patient's teeth and jaws develop to identify a problem at an early stage. We are then able to advise the appropriate treatment in order to take care of that problem before it causes harm.

Benefits of Digital X- Rays

Today, most dental health professionals use digital x-rays. Having replaced film-based x-rays, digital x-rays offer multiple benefits to both the patient and dental health professionals, including:

  • A significant decrease in the radiation exposure rate;
  • Images obtained quickly, which reduces the waiting time for the patient;
  • Computer-editable images for clearer, easier-to-read results from a professional;
  • Files that can easily be transmitted, for example to a doctor or an insurer.

Types of x-rays used in orthodontics

The orthodontist may use different types of X-rays, each of which can be used to observe various elements that are important for his diagnosis. However, the following two types of X-rays are most commonly used in orthodontics:

Panoramic x-ray: essential for any patient followed in orthodontics, they allow to observe the whole dentition visible and in the course of development. The orthodontist can then observe if the teeth erupt normally, as well as their size, orientation, etc. This type of x-ray also makes it possible to observe the development of the jaws, the tissues that support the teeth, as well as the presence of pathologies.

Cephalometric x-rays: this type of x-rays provides a lateral (anterior) and antero-posterior (front and back) view of the jaws of the patient. They allow to observe their development and to detect the potential presence of a problem.

3D models

Dr. Zilio uses 3D models in the planning of his treatments. How does this technology work? The first step is taking the impressions of the patient's teeth, made using a paste that perfectly matches the shape of the latter.

Once the prints have been taken, they are sent to the laboratory to be scanned in 3D models. These models are then used to plan the treatment of the patient, who can then see a concrete image of the result that he will get at the very end of his orthodontic treatment.

3D models are highly profitable for the patient, who can have a clear idea of ​​the benefits of his/her treatment, and for his orthodontist, who can more easily plan the treatment using the many data he has with 3D models.

All these technologies are used by Dr. Zilio to offer his patients the best of orthodontics. For top-notch care, planned with state-of-the-art technology, choose Dr. Zilio for your orthodontic treatments!
