One of the common subjective obstacles to wearing an orthodontic appliance is their conspicuous appearance. However, thanks to new materials and manufacturing technologies, brackets are smaller and more transparent: today, nobody other than you has to know you’re wearing an orthodontic appliance.

What are aesthetic orthodontic appliances?

Aesthetic appliances are orthodontic appliances which, thanks to new materials and manufacturing technologies, are far less visible, almost invisible.

Types of aesthetic orthodontic appliances

There are two variants of dental appliances that can be classified into aesthetic orthodontic appliances:

The aesthetic component relates to transparency of the material, and their mutual difference refers to the fact that some are fixed and others mobile.

With aesthetic orthodontic appliances, your orthodontic therapy is more discreet.

All types of aesthetic orthodontic appliances are available in Apolonija.

Fixed aesthetic orthodontic appliances

The common association to fixed orthodontic appliances  are metal brackets.

However, thanks to high-precision CAD CAM technology, as well as new materials, fixed orthodontic appliances are very pleasant these days, both in appearance and in terms of wearing them.

Even a metal orthodontic appliance today looks discrete compared to the older generations of these orthodontic appliances, and the brackets are much smaller.

Another way how an ordinary metal orthodontic appliance can be made more aesthetically pleasing is by choosing rubber bands in various colours.

Another step towards aesthetics was created by applying different transparent bracket materials: ceramic and polymers.

The colour of the orthodontic appliance is similar to the colour of the teeth

The most visible part of a fixed orthodontic appliance are brackets. At the Apolonija clinic, we offer sophistication and the most technologically advanced aesthetic fixed orthodontic appliances.

Thanks to all of the above, today’s fixed orthodontic appliance will be a very elegant addition to your smile during therapy.

Transparent aligners: Invisalign

Transparent aligners or transparent orthodontic braces are a new concept in orthodontic treatment. The most famous and technologically advanced brand of transparent orthodontic aligners is Invisalign.

Transparent orthodontic aligners, Invisalign, arose from the desire to join practicality, comfort of wear and superior aesthetics of orthodontic appliances, but not to the detriment of the quality of treatment.

As a Platinum Invisalign Provider, with over a hundred Invisalign therapies per year, we can say that this new concept meets all of the above tasks.

Invisalign – the almost invisible orthodontic appliance

The orthodontic appliances we use here are completely transparent. It really isn’t an exaggeration to say that they are invisible even from immediate proximity.

Invisalign, a new concept of orthodontic treatment, has made possible what no orthodontic appliance has been able to achieve so far: that only you and your orthodontist know you are wearing an orthodontic appliance!

With Invisalign you don’t have to worry about the appearance of the appliance – no one will notice it.

You will notice your smile changing and becoming more beautiful.

Are aesthetic orthodontic appliances less effective?

The functions and effectiveness of aesthetic orthodontic appliances do not differ from ordinary orthodontic appliances in the slightest.

This is because an aesthetic orthodontic appliance is only a tool with which the basic principles of orthodontics are equally followed: thorough diagnosis and treatment plan, prevention and treatment of improper bite and the relationship between the upper and lower jaw.

Starting point for selecting orthodontic appliances

We have to keep in mind that an orthodontic appliance, whether aesthetic or regular, is just a tool. The orthodontist plans and leads the therapy and its success will primarily depend on the expertise and experience of the orthodontist.

Accordingly, when choosing plans and leads the therapy, we first start with a specialist check-up and diagnosis, and then we talk about the aesthetic variants of the orthodontic appliance.

However, aware of how important in modern society and business environment the impression we leave on others is, we will do everything we can to meet the patient’s expectations, including the matter of the appearance of the appliance.

Apolonija Clinic specializes in orthodontics and has been operating for 50 years.

With thousands of successful orthodontic therapies and the most modern diagnostics, we believe that we can find a solution for your orthodontic problem.

Is there a price difference between regular and aesthetic orthodontic appliances?

Fixed aesthetic orthodontic appliances have a somewhat higher price than regular orthodontic appliances.

The higher price of fixed aesthetic orthodontic appliances is based primarily on manufacturing materials and the technology which accompanies their application in orthodontics.

This also applies to Invisalign, where the higher cost of therapy primarily stems from the novelty of the concept and its continuous development.

Still, each orthodontic therapy is different, which means that the cost of therapy, regardless of the choice of appliance, is influenced by many factors which we recognize only after diagnosis and conversation with the patient.
