Airnivol, the orthodontic aligner

Airnivol is an orthodontic treatment made of a series of orthodontic aligners to be changed approximately every two weeks. It is used to solve dental malocclusion problems and improve the aesthetics of your smile.

The Airnivol treatment is made for people suffering of from dental malocclusion problems but also for those who want to improve the aesthetics of their smile.

The Airnivol treatment is based on the production of a variable series of custom-made orthodontic aligners. Once worn, each aligner exerts forces to move the teeth into the target position. Every two weeks the patient has to replace the aligner with the next, one until the desired alignment is achieved.

Airnivol is a removable and transparent device. The patient has to take it off only to eat, drink and to brush his teeth. It is easy to clean and is finished with precision to give the maximum comfort.

Airnivol is made of a biocompatible material that does not create irritations or allergies. Its matte finishing avoids the glossy effect very common in many other aligners.
