Modern orthodontics align teeth without anyone noticing that you are wearing braces.
In fact, using a clear aligner does not impact your daily life, privately or professionally.
Every week, you will wear a slightly different aligner to guide your teeth until they reach the final desired position.
Invisible orthodontics using clear aligners is an invisible solution that aligns your teeth without using unpleasant metal braces.
It consists of a series of transparent and removable aligners that gradually move your teeth into the desired position.
There are no wires or rings, and the aligners are custom-made to improve your comfort during treatment.
This orthodontic treatment is invisible : no one will notice that you are wearing a dental device.
You can eat and drink whatever you want ; there are no restrictions on food, as with traditional braces.
Better dental hygiene : traditional braces require the use of an interdental brush to clean between the wires and your teeth, which makes the task of maintaining dental hygiene very difficult.
This is the most comfortable orthodontic treatment available, there is no metal wire that could hurt you during the treatment.
Every patient is unique, which inevitably means that any orthodontic treatment offered also has to be unique. Moreover, the price of the treatment also varies according to the duration as well as the number of clear aligners needed to correct the aesthetic and functional problem.
We can’t give you an exact answer ; however, it should cost between 2500€ and 7000€ for this type of dental device.
Each set of clear aligners is worn for around one week.
Your teeth move gradually over time because each set of clear aligners is slightly different.
The clear aligners are removed only for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.
Every 8 to 10 weeks, you will visit your clinician, so that we can check the progress of your orthodontic treatment.
What does the treatment involve?
Examples of treatment :
I have an open bite
The open bite is characterised by a gap between the teeth of the upper and lower arch. It can lead to a speech disorder, difficulty eating and an unsightly smile.
The correction of the open bite gives the patient a pleasant smile along with improved chewing and speech.
I bite first with my incisors
An “end-to-end” incisal occlusion results in premature wear of the free edges of the incisors. It sometimes leads to a disocclusion in the posterior teeth, which can lead to difficulty with chewing.
The correction of the end-to-end incisal occlusion gave the patient a more aesthetic smile along with increased comfort when chewing.
My teeth are significantly crowding
In addition to an unsightly smile, significant crowding of the teeth can make dental and interdental brushing very difficult and promote periodontal disease. On the lower incisor, we can see the dental root associated with the crowding.
The correction of the dental positions through orthodontic treatment created an improvement of the periodontal state as well as an aesthetic improvement.
My teeth are slightly crowding
Slight crowding often results in an unsightly smile. Brushing of teeth can also be impacted by difficulty of access.
The correction of the slight crowding created a correct alignment of the teeth.
My lower teeth cover those at the top (crossbite)
Crossbite is a rare problem in which the position of the dental arches is reversed. It will cause all the common problems: chewing, speech, unsightly smile and long-term joint problems. Correcting crossbite is very important.
The correction of the crossbite has rectified all necessary features of a relationship between the two arches.
I bite too much on my bottom teeth (deep bite)
The deep bite, as its name suggests, is the act of biting too deeply. This will result in premature wear of the teeth and the aggravation of the phenomenon will cause bites in the palate, extremely painful for the patient.
The correction of deep bite enables the patient to find a perfect relationship again between the incisors as well as a much more harmonious and aesthetic smile.
I have a protruding tooth
Often unsightly and sometimes associated with periodontal problems.
In just a few months, the correction restored some symmetry to the incisors.
I have a diastema
A diastema creates an unsightly smile as it breaks the symmetry of the teeth.
In just a few months, quick corrective treatement closed the diastema. Dental symmetry has been restored.
I have gaps between my teeth
Gaps between the teeth can cause several inconveniences for the patient: an unsightly smile as well as food constantly getting stuck.
Closing the spaces stopped food getting stuck. It also improved the appearance of the patient’s teeth.
My upper teeth sit too far forward
This problem can sometimes be due the teeth, or the bone (it is actually the upper jaw which sits too far forward, not the teeth). Wearing dental elastics between the jaws will reduce this unattractive misalignment.
In addition to dental aesthetics, the patient’s profile has also been modified. This means two improvements to the overall aesthetics : dental and facial.
It is now possible to straighten teeth without braces thanks to orthodontic clear aligners. These clear aligners will gradually move your teeth into the correct position. So, your teeth can be straightened without wearing unattractive braces.
Our orthodontics clinic in Brussels provides treatment to people of any age. Nevertheless, you should be aware that moving devitalised teeth is less predictable.
As with any medical treatment, there is minor risk associated with orthodontic treatments. A complete list will be given to you before you begin any treatment.
The codes of dental ethics give patients complete freedom in their choice of practitioner. It is therefore quite possible for you to change orthodontist under certain conditions :
1° Notify us of the braces model used by your previous orthodontist (ask your previous orthodontist and/or send a photo of your braces). It is possible that our orthodontist may not work with the same system, which would make it impossible for us to deliver the same treatment. In such cases, we will only be able to continue your treatment at our clinic by completely removing the old system and using a new system.
2° Provide us with a signed statement declaring that you do not have any outstanding payments of any sort with your previous orthodontist.
3° Provide us with your medical file as well as all x-rays taken. Otherwise, to make a precise diagnosis of your case, we will need to retake the X-rays, which may not be covered by insurance.
