Orthodontics in Fuengirola, Mijas Costa, Los Boliches and Colmenar
The orthodontic treatments we carry out at our Dental Clinic in Fuengirola, Mijas Costa, Los Boliches and Colmenar involve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of problems related to the misalignment of teeth, as well as the relationship between the jaw and the mandibular bones. The correct alignment of the teeth significantly improves aesthetics, hygiene, chewing and speaking.
At Dentalcer Clinics, we carry out a comprehensive initial assessment of the patient’s dental condition. This allows us to provide the dental care that best suits the patient’s needs and is as short and efficient as possible.

Fixed orthodontics: Braces made of metal ceramic or sapphire crystal that are placed on the teeth.
Invisible orthodontics: Nearly invisible removable aligners are used to straighten the teeth. This treatment is suitable for anyone who does not want to use another orthodontic method for aesthetic or professional reasons.
Removable orthodontics: Appliances that can be easily placed and removed by the patient. They are most commonly used for children.
Invisible Orthodontics – Invisalign
How does it work?
Invisible orthodontics, also known as Invisalign, is a type of orthodontic treatment that uses transparent, removable aligners instead of the more traditional braces with metal wires.
Invisalign uses 3D scanning technology to create a series of custom aligners for the patient. These aligners are changed every two weeks to gradually move the teeth to the desired position.
One of the main benefits of Invisalign is its invisible appearance. As they are transparent, the aligners are much less noticeable than braces with metal wires, making them ideal for those who wish to correct their smile without drawing attention to their teeth.
A good diet is essential, and it is advisable that patients eat almost everything. However, nuts are not recommended due to their size and hardness. Likewise, all food should be cut into small pieces and chewed carefully. Another important factor in orthodontic treatments is oral hygiene. Therefore, after each meal, you should clean your teeth thoroughly.
The experience of pain in orthodontic treatment can vary from person to person and can also depend on what stage of the treatment process they are in. Generally, orthodontic treatments involve moving teeth through the application of controlled pressure over a series of stages, using braces or Invisalign. This adjusts both the alignment of the patient’s jaw and the positioning of their teeth.
At the DentalCer Clinic, we treat each case individually. However, generally speaking, tooth extraction is not required. Our expert, Dr. Cerezo, conducts a thorough and personalised study of each patient with 3D images. As we have this technology installed in all our DentalCer Clinics, we can take very precise measurements before making any decisions.
