WHAT IS F22?
F22 is an invisible system of masks to give you back your smile, straightening your teeth the way you’ve always wanted. Your dentist will develop a complete treatment plan, from the initial position of the teeth through to the final desired position.
A series of transparent aligners will then be made to measure for you, to be worn all day and all night for about two weeks, before they are replaced with the next pair, until the planned results have been achieved.
Is F22 right for me?
F22 makes it possible to treat both simple and complex cases, although a professional dental practitioner must always be consulted.

HOW MUCH DOES TREATMENT WITH F22 COST?
As for any orthodontic treatment, the cost depends on the type and complexity of the case, but generally it is comparable to the cost of treatments with conventional fixed devices.
WHY DOES IT WORK?
Aligners control the degree and times of tooth movement. Movements of the teeth occur delicately, in a controlled and gradual manner.<br />
In every phase only a certain number of teeth must be allowed to move, as defined by the initial treatment plan. The result is a system of strong and constant forces, that are highly effective in moving the teeth to the required position.
HOW OFTEN WILL I NEED TO RETURN TO MY DENTIST DURING TREATMENT WITH F22?
Appointments with F22 patients are usually very quick and are made every 4–6 weeks, to allow the practitioner to check the progress of treatment and to consign the next pair of aligners.
WHAT SHOULD I DO DURING MEALS?
F22 aligners are removable, and they are strongly recommended not to be worn while eating, to prevent them from being stained by food colouring pigments., This is a great advantage from the viewpoint of oral hygiene with respect to conventional devices with brackets and wires.<br />
Before wearing them again, remember to clean your teeth thoroughly and correctly.
CAN I SMOKE WHILE WEARING THE ALIGNERS?
Smoking is inadvisable, because tobacco smoke can stain the aligners, impairing their transparency.
CAN I CHEW CHEWING GUM?
Chewing any kind of food, and in particular chewing gum, is not recommended while aligners are being worn, because it might stick to them.
CAN I WASH MY F22 ALIGNERS?
Aligners should be cleaned every time before insertion using a brush with soft bristles and cold water (never hot) and a small amount of toothpaste. They should then be thoroughly rinsed. It is essential not to clean aligners using cleaning products for dental prostheses, or to soak them in mouthwash. These products can in fact damage aligner surfaces, making them opaque and more visible.
