Transparent plaques are serial removable treatment tools that are produced specifically for the person over the treatment plan designed in a digital environment. It provides high aesthetics and is difficult to notice. Treatment provides more predictable results in digital orthodontic planning. All treatment steps can be seen in advance and shared via online systems. Almost all problems such as crooked teeth, split teeth, crooked teeth or missing teeth can be solved with transparent aligners.
Since the treatment plan is clearly defined with clear plates, the control intervals can be kept long. Flexible treatment plan is often preferred by patients living abroad who have difficulty in coming to appointments due to work or school schedule. Thanks to digital orthodontic planning, more than one tooth can be moved at the same time, thus shortening the total treatment time. The frequency and total duration of control appointments are less in clear aligners.
Transparent plates provide ease of cleaning as well as aesthetic appearance. As in braces treatment, there are no brackets that cause food accumulation on the teeth, only retaining aesthetic filling pieces are placed. The rate of food accumulation after meals is similar to normal teeth and is easily cleaned by brushing. Since there are no protruding parts such as brackets on the teeth, the possibility of irritation and pain is almost absent. Again, there are no risks such as breakage of brackets and disruption of treatment, which are often seen in braces treatment.
There is no restriction on eating and drinking in clear plaque treatments. At mealtime, plaque is temporarily removed and nutrients are consumed freely. For drinks, you don't even need to remove the plate most of the time. In scientific studies, gingival disorders and tooth discoloration have been encountered much less frequently in transparent plaques compared to braces treatment.
Transparent plaques do not create any obstacles in social life thanks to their completely invisible structure, allowing you to continue your treatment comfortably on your special days. If desired, a break can be made on special days such as weddings, business dinners, graduations and invitations. Eating and drinking can be provided comfortably without the plates being attached.

In this method, specially designed clear aligners called dentures are used and each aligner is worn for about 7-10 days until it is replaced with the next aligner.

These plates have small retainers that help the teeth move, and the treatment progresses by replacing the plates in sequence. You can progress by changing the expired record yourself, it is not necessary to come to the control for every record.
Wireless orthodontics with transparent plaques usually lasts between 6 months and 2 years, depending on the treatment needs.

In some difficult cases, tires that can be put on and taken off at night can be used to support tooth movements.
It is recommended that you switch from the transparent plate you actively use to the previous one, and contact your physician.
In the treatment of clear plaque with Orthero, the condition of the teeth in the mouth is recorded with a digital measuring device. Afterwards, there is a three-dimensional planning process carried out by the orthodontist. After the planning process, the records are produced and shipped at the production facility of Istanbul Technical University Technopolis. At the initial appointment, retaining aesthetic filling pieces (attachments) are adhered to the teeth and active treatment begins with the first plaques.
After the invisible orthodontic treatment is finished, as in all other orthodontic methods, very thin retainers (retainers) are made to the inner side of the teeth in order to ensure the permanence of the treatment. It is recommended to keep this protector in your mouth at all times.
