ORTHODONTICS CURRENTLY ENCOMPASSES A WIDE RANGE OF AESTHETIC OPTIONS AND IN CLÍNICA MARCÓ WE OFFER THEM ALL

Clínica Marcó offers all aesthetic orthodontic options: Lingual technique, clear Invisalign aligners and braces.

Our commitment goes beyond obtaining an aesthetic result; we also consider functionality. When teeth are properly aligned, it provides a lovely smile, it facilitates chewing and digestion, and helps improve general health.

 

LINGUAL ORTHODONTICS

Lingual is the most cosmetic technique and is a very reliable system that can be used to correct practically all cases. The braces are adjusted in the laboratory to adapt to each patient’s dental anatomy and they are then placed behind the teeth, in such a way they are completely hidden. Over the years, the brackets have become smaller and smaller, thus shortening the adaptation period, which does not usually last long thanks to the tongue’s adaptability.

The price, which always depends on the complexity of the case, ranges between €2,900 and €7,500.

The lingual technique is complex and the experience of the specialist and their team is essential for ensuring optimum results.

Advantages

  • Completely invisible.
  • Ideal for keeping track of the teeth’s movements, which can be seen easily as there are no devices getting in the way.
  • There is no risk of damaging or discolouring the enamel on the front of the teeth.
  • The tongue’s continuous movement helps keep the braces clean.
  • Lower risk of dental trauma than with traditional braces (for example, when doing sports).
  • Due to the fact that the braces are fixed, they act for 24 hours a day
INVISALIGN

Invisalign aligners are discreet and removable, which makes them very popular among patients.

They are clear braces that are changed every two weeks in order to adapt to the teeth as they progressively align.

A slight drawback is that to be able to accomplish certain movements, special resin buttons that look like transparent brackets need to be attached to the front of the tooth. The length of the treatment partly depends on the amount of time the braces are worn.

Treatment with Invisalign costs between €1,500 and €5,000.

Advantages

  • The aligners are transparent and are practically invisible.
  • They are removable, which makes oral hygiene easier.
  • Ideal for keeping track of the straightening process, which can be seen easily as there are no devices covering the teeth.
  • There is no danger of damaging or discolouring the visible enamel at the front of the teeth, provided the resin retention buttons mentioned above are not attached.
  • Lower risk of dental trauma than with traditional braces (for example, when doing sport).
CLEAR BRACES

The technique used in transparent orthodontics is the same as with conventional orthodontics with metal braces. In this case, the brackets are made of porcelain, sapphire or plastic, which means they blend in quite well with dental enamel. We recommend porcelain or sapphire brackets as certain food or drinks tend to stain plastic ones, though sapphire brackets are the least noticeable as they imitate the colour of the teeth. These kind of braces offer a simple, safe and very effective solution, although they are not as discreet as lingual braces or Invisalign.

The cost of treatment with clear braces ranges between €1,600 and €4,900, depending on the type of material.

Advantages

  • The technique corrects the majority of orthodontic problems.
  • Cheaper than other kinds of invisible braces.
  • Can be combined with lingual braces, so as to cut the cost of the treatment. Lingual braces are worn on the upper teeth and clear braces are placed on the bottom teeth, which are the least noticeable.
  • Together with metal braces, it is the most recommended technique for children.
