Clear Aligners or invisalign is the most popular orthodontic treatment system of the current world. In this digital system the entire treatment is planned from start to finish using proprietary patented software . The treatment is divided into multiple stages and a tray is fabricated on a 3D printed model of each stage preloaded with sufficient force to move the teeth to the next stage. There will be a set of aligner trays which are invisible, removable easy to use and comfortable to wear. The number of trays varies from 10 to 35 or even more depending on the severity of the problem. It should be worn in a sequence as directed by the doctor. The important advantage is , the monthly appointments for regular braces can be skipped and can meet the doctor once in three months or even more depending on the case. In most of the cases ,the entire trays are delivered upfront. The follow up consultation re done virtually and if there is any issues found in between , a direct consultation is arranged or a new measurement is taken using a self impression kit and sent to the clinic. A new set of trays are sent if there is any correction in the system. If a tray is missed or broken in between immedietly a new tray is printed and sent to the patient as we have the entire case report available in our software. It is the most wanted orthodontic system for people living abroad and at distant places & students studying out of state and staying in hostels.

Ceramic brackets are tooth coloured and self ligating brackets hold the wires tight to the brackets with an inbuilt shutter clip so that teeth move fast compared to regular elastic modules. Fast movement and better appearance are the advantages of this system.
Its a regular orthodontic system where we use tooth coloured ceramic brackets instead of the metal brackets.
Functionally same as the above system, the only difference is the metal brackets.
Since the brackets are small and compact, the overall comfort of the patient is better compared to the regular size brackets.
The difference is in the quality of the bracket material and design. These imported brackets are more made with more precision and advanced machinery.
It is the standard metal braces system used most commonly.
