Invisible braces Invisalign
A modern and discreet method of orthodontic treatment, safe for patients of all ages. The appliance is an invisible plastic tray. The treatment period may last only a few months. The appliance can be removed for up to two hours within a day.

This is the traditional solution used in orthodontic treatment. Braces are permanently attached to the patient’s teeth. Both upper and lower braces consist of metal brackets and wires, with colorful ‘rubber bands’ that are changed monthly. The treatment typically lasts from 12 to 24 months. Sometimes, additional appliances may be required after the treatment. Following the completion of the treatment, it is necessary to use a retainer, which can be either fixed or removable
