Invisalign dental splints — price in Dubai
Braces are now not the only option for getting a beautiful smile and straight teeth, and eliminating various bite defects. Modern orthodontics is ready to offer patients a comfortable and aesthetic alternative: dental bite splints.
Dental splints for alignment: what is it?
Dental splints are special orthodontic appliances that are made of a transparent, elastic polymer and are worn on your teeth to correct your bite or whiten your teeth. Previously these systems were only used to treat mild dental anomalies, these days, dental splints have virtually the same capabilities as braces.
Invisalign dental splints are available to patients at Aesthete premium dental clinic. The brand's products have an impeccable reputation among leading orthodontists for their quality, efficiency, versatility, comfort and aesthetics.

When do I need a dental splint correction?
Dental splints can be successfully used to align the teeth of patients of any age: adults, adolescents, children over 7 years. In most cases, the need for treatment can be determined visually: if your teeth have an unsightly shape, are crooked, crowding each other, be sure to visit an orthodontist consultation! A specialist will diagnose and determine the type of abnormality and choose an effective method to correct it.
Invisalign dental splints effectively work in the treatment of:
- Interdental spaces (tremas and diastematas).
- Overcrowding of teeth, this occurs when there is a lack of space in the dental row for full eruption and normal growth of all teeth.
- Supra-occlusion, open occlusion, anterocclusion, cross occlusion.
Dental splints are also prescribed to correct minor defects in the teeth: for example, to correct the shape of several teeth in the smile area.
How do dental splints work?
Invisalign orthodontic polymer dental splints have a delicate, but strong enough mechanical effect on the teeth, gradually changing their position in the dental rows. Each model in the set performs its specific teeth alignment task, so these appliances have to be changed regularly.
The model is changed after the orthodontist's check-up: the specialist evaluates the results achieved and gives the patient the next set.
Benefits of Invisalign splints
Invisalign dental splints are praised by experts for their unique features:
1. Impeccable aesthetics
These dental splints are compact, have no protrusions that could stand out against the background of the tooth enamel and attract unnecessary attention from others. They are made of a transparent polymer that fits snugly to the teeth and is completely invisible to the eye. The dental splints will remain invisible when you talk or even smile. Aesthetics is one of the reasons for the high demand for Invisalign among media, public figures, adult patients who do not want to publicize the fact of treatment.
Invisalign dental splints are comfortable in daily use, the design has no metal elements and hard plates, they are made of elastic, soft polymer, not chafing, not injuring gums and sensitive mucosa. The dental splints do not hinder hygienic procedures, the material is biocompatible with human body tissues, does not provoke irritation or allergic reactions.
Unlike braces, dental splints are easy to remove/apply by yourself, without going to the doctor's office. You can remove the appliances from your teeth to eat, perform hygienic procedures, and perform dental treatment. Removable design provides ease of care and preserves the possibility of quality oral hygiene. You do not need to purchase special tools or devices to clean your teeth while wearing dental splints. The products themselves can be easily cleaned of any dirt with a soft brush, paste and special cleaning solutions.
4. No dietary restrictions
When correcting using braces, certain dietary restrictions are imposed. You will have to exclude from the menu too stiff or viscous foods, the consumption of which can lead to a breakage of the arch or peeling off the locks. With Invisalign dental splints there are no such restrictions, because the products are simply removed from the teeth at meal times.
5. Easy placement
The placement of Invisalign aligners is quick, taking only 20-30 minutes, and most of the time is spent providing the patient with detailed advice on how to use and care for the dental splints independently. It is just as easy and quick to change the model of the set: the patient comes for a check-up and receives new aligners, which he/she will use until his next visit to the specialist's office.
6. No damage to enamel
Soft dental splints have no harmful, destructive effects on tooth enamel. It retains its structure, beautiful color, does not thin or weaken as it does when you wear braces for a long time. When wearing Invisalign aligners, the patient can easily undergo professional cleaning and whitening procedures.
How to care for dental splints
There is nothing difficult in the care for the products, but it must be regular and be carried out in compliance with a number of rules. You should brush your dental splints the same way you brush your teeth, twice a day, morning and evening, and be sure to clean your dental splints if you take them off to have a snack or drink tea or coffee.
The dental splints must be removed when eating so that the plastic does not stain from the food pigments or melt from contact with hot liquids. Disinfection should be carried out once a day, using special solutions or hydrogen peroxide, soda solution. It is best to clean your dental splints using the tools and products offered by the manufacturer.
Removed dental splints should not be stored outdoors or without a container. The surface of the appliance will collect bacteria that can cause inflammation in the mouth.
Invisalign bite correction stages
The process of correcting bite defects with Invisalign dental splints takes place in several successive stages:
The treatment process will begin with an examination, diagnosis, and a detailed consultation with the orthodontist. The doctor examines the oral cavity, prescribes a CT scan and other studies that will help determine the defect and the stage of its development, to rule out possible contraindications to orthodontic treatment. In addition, the specialist tells in detail about how the dental splints are fabricated and installed, what rules must be followed to align the teeth, what the results will be and when it will be achieved. If the patient decides to undergo treatment, impressions of the teeth are taken, which, along with all the information from the diagnosis, will be used to plan the treatment.
Bite correction with Invisalign dental splints is planned step-by-step with the help of special computer software. Virtual modeling will clearly show the patient how the teeth will move, what changes occur at each stage, how the Invisalign dental splints will change the smile and appearance after the completion of the correction course.
The results of the 3D modeling, casts and all the information collected are sent to a laboratory in the United States, where a customized set with the right number of dental splints will be fabricated for the patient. When the set is made, it is forwarded to the dentist.
The initial insertion of Invisalign aligners always takes place at the orthodontist's office. The doctor shows the patient how to correctly remove / put on the product, gives recommendations for daily use, dental hygiene, maintenance of prostheses. A date is set for a follow-up examination.
During the course, the patient wears Invisalign dental splints on the teeth daily, removing the appliances only at mealtimes and for hygiene procedures. To be effective, the dental splints must remain on the teeth for 20–22 hours a day. Every two weeks the patient visits the orthodontist for check-ups and changing the dental splints. Follow-up visits continue until the treatment is completed, the duration of which depends on the complexity of the clinical case.
5. Final stage
To prevent the teeth from returning to their former position after the dental splints are removed, the patient will have to wear retainers for some time.
Invisalign bite correction
The dental splints come in a variety of brands; our dentistry clinic has chosen the best solution for our patients: the Invisalign systems, which have an impeccable reputation, clinical database and proven effectiveness.
Invisalign dental splints are made of a unique, patented SmartTrack material. It is a medical polymer with high biocompatibility and durability. The material is elastic and soft, but is also quite hard. The pressure created by Invisalign mouth guards is enough to cause the teeth movement. The smooth surface of medical plastic does not accumulate plaque, it is difficult to scratch, and the polymer is not prone to chipping. The material is completely transparent, so it is invisible on dental surfaces even when smiling or talking. You can only see the dental splints from a very close distance.
The manufacturer uses Smart Force technology, which involves the production of dental splints and attachments with a special design that provides precise, controlled pressure.
A special software, the virtual simulation ClinCheck, is used to plan the correction with Invisalign dental splints. Three-dimensional planning allows making the treatment of dental abnomalies fully controlled and predictable by the process at all stages. ClinCheck calculates the movement of each tooth and the alignment sequence as accurately as possible and helps to obtain excellent results even in the most complex clinical situations.
Align Technology has developed three options of Invisalign systems:
- Invisalign SuperLite. It is used to eliminate mild defects, involves a course of correction, lasting 6-12 months and 7-10 sets of dental splints, which the patient needs to change regularly;
- Invisalign Lite. It is prescribed for the correction of medium severity disorders, the maximum period of treatment is 8-18 months;
- Invisalign Full. The program is designed for the successful treatment of severe dental anomalies. The set may include 20-40 sets of replacement dental splints.
The brand has also created dental splints for children and adolescents, which allow you to correct bite defects at an early age. The models for young patients have special markers that allow parents to control the duration of wearing the dental appliances.
Our orthodontists are trained and certified by Align Technology and will definitely choose the best Invisalign dental splints bite correction program for you!

- The complexity of the corrected defect, the total duration of the course.
- The need for prior therapeutic treatment. Dental splints cannot be placed on diseased, decayed teeth, in cases of active inflammatory processes in the mouth. Before you can get your teeth aligned, all diseases must be cured!
- The number of dental splints that will be needed to align your teeth.

Invisalign or braces
Which is better: Invisalign dental splints or conventional braces? This question may arise in patients with uncomplicated dental anomalies for whom both types of orthodontic appliances are suitable for correction.
The answer could be as follows:
- If the aesthetics of your smile are important to you, the Invisalign transparent and invisible systems are the best option. Any type of braces (with the exception of lingual systems) will be visible on the teeth, while Invisalign dental splints are invisible on the tooth surfaces, as they fit tightly to them, exactly following the contour of the teeth. Invisalign invisibility has made Invisalign a popular means of correction among celebrities and media personalities.
- If you are disciplined, if you will strictly follow the recommendations of the orthodontist and observe the regime of wearing the appliances on your teeth, you can safely opt for Invisalign. If there are doubts that you will follow the rules of using the dental splints, you should settle on braces.
An alternative to invisible dental splints should be sought if diagnosis reveals bone disease, impacted teeth. Invisalign is not placed in case of not fully formed jaw, deep skeletal occlusion.
And, of course, you should always listen to the attending medical doctor: only a specialist can give accurate recommendations for the selection of orthodontic appliances that can give the best result in a particular clinical case.
