Invisalign Orthodontics in Peru
Invisalign is a revolutionary technology allowing the patient to achieve perfect teeth alignment without visible braces. Invisalign as a orthodontics system is supported by over 20 years of research and 900 patents. Invisalign is the world’s largest 3D printing operation with over 8 million cases to date.
Orthodontics methods, such as Invisalign, are used to align the teeth perfectly, giving the patient an ideal smile, which helps facial symmetry and the facial profile of a person. Proper positioning of the teeth also permits better mastication and reduces gum inflammation.
Orthodontics has two fundamental objectives. The first is to improve the aesthetics of a person’s smile. The second is to improve the bite to achieve ideal positioning of the teeth upon closure. This reduces inflammation of the gums, reduces exposure of teeth roots, helps preserve teeth and reduces the harmful effects of night-grinding, while improving mastication.
When the first objectives of form and function are are met, orthodontics is considered a success. Treatment begins with panoramic and cephalometric x-rays of the patient, where we plot the measurements of the teeth in relation to the base of the skull. These measurements must meet the theoretical ideal values during the treatment.

Invisalign Frequently Asked Questions
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a system that uses clear, removable retainers to align teeth.
What are the advantages?
Invisalign uses clear, removable mouthpieces, so no one will know you are undergoing orthodontic treatment. Lastly, as with most of our treatments at our Lima dental clinic, with Invisalign we are able to demonstrate with computer software how your teeth and smile will look after the treatment is completed.
Who is a good candidate?
Invisalign can be used in the great majority of cases to correct malocclusions.
What is the procedure?
During the initial visit we will take impressions and send these impressions to Invisalign. Using advanced 3-D computer imaging technology we will transform your bite impressions into a custom-made series of clear and removable aligners. Depending on your treatment plan, you will have from 12 to 48 different aligners. You’ll wear each set of aligners day and night for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. The patient will visit us only about every 6 weeks to ensure that for checkups, however, this is not necessarily required.
How long does Invisalign treatment last?
Treatments typically last from 7 to 14 months.
What are the costs of Invisalign?
In the US, for example, Invisalign can cost $10,000 or more. At our Lima, Peru dental clinic we are able to offer significant savings with prices comparable to braces, varying according to the complexity of the treatment. Contact us and our orthodontists will be happy to discuss with you whether Invisalign is right for you.
