Airnivol, the orthodontic aligner

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

The Airnivol treatment is designed for people suffering from dental malocclusion problems and also to improve the aesthetics of your smile.

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

Airnivol is removable and transparent. The patient needs to remove it only when eating, drinking and brushing the teeth. It is easy to clean and is finished with precision to give maximum comfort.

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