How the treatment works
- Once an orthodontist decides how to correct your bite, he’ll make a plan for moving your teeth, if you can be treated with aligners imprints and pictures are taken and sent to the lab.
- In the lab 3D-model is made- your today’s bite and the result we want to achieve after treatment.
- Using the 3D-model aligners are made, you will have to change your aligner every 2-3 weeks.
- You will see the first results in 4-5 weeks.
Treatment time with aligners usually takes between 10-24 months. It’s important to visit your doctor as scheduled and follow his recommendations.

Braces – are non-removable orthodontic devices that are used to correct bite. Wearing braces during a not long period of time will eliminate all anomalies and defects, and as a result- straight teeth.
If you are interested in placing braces please visit our medical center “Parodent” in Lviv. Our doctors are real magicians, thanks to them, you will have the most beautiful smile.
Braces are placed after full diagnostics and treatment of all damaged teeth. If you are suffering from gum diseases they have to be treated first too.
Purpose of braces
Braces were made to correct bite and change the position of teeth. Every tooth has it’s own hole in which it is held by fibers of connective tissue. The tooth is changing its place when constant pressure is influencing it in one direction for a certain period of time. The new connective tissue appears and starts to hold the tooth in the wrong position.
Braces provide even pressure on all teeth in the correct direction. That’s how the correction of bite works.
Types of braces:
Due to the material:
Placement of braces
- 1st stage- professional hygiene of oral cavity, treatment of teeth ( changing of old fillings, treatment of caries)
- 2nd – placement of braces- orthodontist prepares enamel, fixes braces, places ligature. Then he will give you a few recommendations.
The procedure will last about an hour ( 1 jaw). If you need braces for both jaws you will need 2 visits. The procedure may vary, depends on the type of braces that are placed.
We also provide other types of orthodontic treatment.
