It helps patients fix the minor imperfections in a short amount of time by applying the invisible mold. Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans out for you.

At Medic8, we apply the TemporoMandibular Joint System. The TMJ System is comprised of a series of soft intra-oral appliances specifically designed to bring relief to the patient. The device relieves the pressure by gently decompressing the inflamed joints when placed in the mouth. It will also correct the alignment of the lower jaw and stretch the tight and painful muscles around the jaws, head and neck area, resulting in an immediate decrease in pain. Bruxing or the grinding of teeth is also prevented by the patented aerofoil shaped base and dual molded design.
At Medic8 we use OrthoApnea, a new patented intraoral appliance designed for the treatment of snoring and Sleep Apnea. The mechanism is based on a controlled and comfortable advancement of the mandible, which increases the muscle tone in the respiratory tract area, allowing the air to flow freely. As a result, snoring is eliminated and the episodes of the apnea are reduced, resulting in a better quality of life for the patients.
All of the conditions cited above are structural and functional disorders of the oral cavity and, usually arising from genetic or stress factors in addition with a defected bite.
