Description

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic technique because it is  almost invisible. Developed in 2001 in Santa Clara (California), it combines the  Digital Dental  3D imaging, robotics and the principles of treatment of conventional  orthodontics.

This technique uses neither wires  nor braces  but a series of thin, transparent plastic trays (called aligners), which move the teeth to their ideal position.
The treatment plan is designed by Dr Benguira using a highly accurate and complex software that allows the user to watch the series of movements that  the teeth will make during the treatment.

The series of clear aligners is then individually manufactured and tailored in Santa Clara, according to the impressions of the teeth of the patient and according to the treatment plan defined by the orthodontist Invisalign has become increasingly popular in North America and Europe.
Now adults can use orthodontics to improve the position of their teeth and smile without the constraints of wearing  visible braces. As of recently, it is possible to treat Adolescents with Invisalign Teen aligners.
