05 Nov Why using invisible aligners with professional supervision is so important
Invisible orthodontic treatments are proving to be an effective alternative to the bracket. Thanks to its comfort and ease of use, people prefer using invisible aligners instead of brackets. However, these still need the intervention of professionals to guarantee the success of the treatment.
Do you know the risks of using this type of orthodontics without supervision?
We tell you!
In recent years, a large number of brands of invisible aligners have emerged. They’re trying to differentiate themselves by promising to can be used directly by the client.
The risk of “do it yourself”
These types of brands assure you that sending images of your teeth, they can make you an aligner that they send directly to your home. But, is this reliable?
Not at all!
We made it clear from the beginning: using transparent aligners without professional supervision is a risk.
And weare not the only ones who say it! The Spanish Society of Orthodontics has pointed out that the use of invisible aligners without the supervision of a professional can be detrimental to health.
Using transparent aligners
To begin with, treatment planning and the choice of the most suitable device, are a very complicated process.
The truth is that professionals must assess numerous factors to ensure the safety and success of the treatment. For example, it is sometimes necessary to assess whether there may be an alteration in the tissues that fix the tooth to the bone or in the jaw and maxilla bones themselves.
For this reason, it’s essential a correct planning that takes into account all these aspects. Then, the orthodontist will choose the type of treatment depending on each case.
Orthodontics without supervision
There are many risks of trying to “self-treat” orthodontics, or go to sites with unskilled personnel.
Improper treatment can:
1-Cause problems in the opening and closing of the jaw
2- Altering the TMJ (temporomandibular joint)
3- Produce pain, dental injuries
4- Alter the supporting tissues of the tooth, periodontal ligament and bone and gums
5- Cause dental mobility, resorption of the tooth root and even loss of teeth
This is one of the reasons why these treatments cannot be performed at home.
