Reshape your perfect smile

Orthodontics studies, prevents and corrects teeth and bone discrepancies between the maxilla and mandible, returning the patient an ideal function which leads to perfect esthetics and maintains proper functioning of the stomatognathic system.
This type of treatment is specially indicated in children and adolescents as it is in this age when we are able to correct differences in size between maxilla and mandible.
At i2 Implantology we work with all technics such as metal braces, esthetic braces, lingual braces or invisible aligners.

Orthodontic techniques

Clear orthodontics

Invisalign straightens your teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made specifically for your teeth. As you replace each aligner every two weeks, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week, gradually moving towards the projected final position.

Invisible lingual orthodontics

Lingual orthodontics is truly invisible, braces are placed on the back of the teeth and these braces are 100% customized to the shape of your teeth. With this type of treatment patients experience minimal discomfort and speech interference. Since these braces fit on the inside there is no risk of decalcification to the front tooth surface.

Ceramic braces are the same size and shape as metal braces, except that they are tooth-colored or clear brackets that blend in to teeth. At i2 Implantology we even use tooth-colored wires to be even less noticeable

Metal braces are the most noticeable way of straightening your teeth and they are less expensive.

Frequently asked questions

Actually knowing if you do need or not an orthodontic treatment could be quite easy at first although your orthodontist will be the only one to help you with which technique fits you better, how long your treatment will last for and how difficult your case is. For this matter your orthodontist will need as much records as possible such as panoramic xray, lateral xray, pictures of your mouth and face and dental casts.

You should visit an specialist who will study your case and will give you a diagnosis and treatment plan which is key to stable orthodontic treatments

They are not. It is usual to feel some discomfort when you start with your orthodontic treatment and when you get your wires changed, although you should not feel any pain at all.
4 years would be a great age to bring your kids to the orthodontist although most of the treatments would not begin until they are 9 years old.
