Affordable Clear Aligners in Costa Rica

If you’re looking for an alternative to traditional, costly braces, look no further than Dental Coto, a professional clinic that provides affordable clear aligners in Costa Rica for patients from any country. Wired braces are an expensive restoration for straightening teeth, no matter the extent of the process needed, and many teenagers and adults are becoming more concerned with the appearance of the mouth during the time that they wear braces. With a treatment option that allows for the smile to appear naturally while being straightened, the invisible alternative has become popular over the last decade, and with a low cost appliance available through Dental Coto, nothing should be in your way of having a straighter smile.

What are clear aligners?

This type of bracing treatment is a specialized, clear appliance used by dentists and orthodontists to realign the teeth and jaw of a patient in order to straighten the teeth in a healthy manner. The plastic-like devices shifts the teeth incrementally over time like traditional braces and guides the structure of your mouth into a proper bite for the top and bottom rows of teeth to properly fit together. Because moving teeth into different places than they are currently is a complex process and one that should be done very carefully to ensure your dental health, it is recommended to visit your dental professional every six to ten weeks to ensure that the aligners are shifting teeth correctly. 

What is the process of receiving aligners?

When you initially decide that you would like to wear clear aligners for your teeth straightening, you should schedule a consultation with the dentist or orthodontist at Dental Coto for a comprehensive examination of your mouth. The team within the clinic will take a series of x-rays, digital scans and photographs at your visit to document and analyze the current state of your teeth, jawline and bone structure and will then formulate a treatment plan for your bracing. The team will then manipulate your scans with a computer software designed specifically for the process of receiving the aligner device in order to craft an appliance specifically for your teeth and the course of treatment. Utilizing the impressions that are created during the initial visit, a series of clear aligners will be crafted to replicate your teeth and to gradually shift your bite, and these will be provided during a second visit.

The team will ensure that the pieces fit properly within your mouth and will instruct you on how to wear them. Each set of aligners will be slightly tighter and straighter than the previous set to place slightly more pressure each time and continuously move the teeth into the place that the dentist wants them.

Typically, each set is worn for a period of around six weeks prior to moving forward with the next, and patients are recommended to wear the aligners for at least 22 hours per day. As you eat and brush your teeth, you can remove the appliance, but these should be kept in your mouth otherwise to maximize the effects of the treatment process. After the full series of aligners have been worn for the proper time and the doctor approves of their results, you will be recommended to wear a retainer for a period of time. In almost no time, you will see a straighter smile, and with a low cost for the treatment, we can assure that you will be highly satisfied with this choice of bracing.
