OUR SERVICES

We offer state-of-the-art and holistic orthodontic treatment for all ages. Temporomandibular joint treatment and correction of tooth/jaw misalignments with Invisalign, lingual technique or classic braces for adults, teenagers and as early treatment for children.  

Based on the diagnostic documents (models, x-rays, 3d scans, photos) we plan the treatment and specify the time schedule. In a detailed consultation, we then explain the individual steps to you. Of course, we will also explain the different treatment options and braces.

The brackets are glued to the teeth from the inside so that they are not visible to the outside world. However, this slightly restricts the tongue's range of motion.

The fixed braces speed up the treatment. So-called self-ligating brackets, such as speed brackets, show an effect after around three months, and the overall duration of therapy is significantly reduced compared to conventional models. A barely visible tooth-colored variant can also be selected.

These have the function of moving individual teeth, re-developing an upper jaw that is too narrow in width and bringing the upper and lower jaw into the correct position in relation to one another. The latter is done with the help of functional orthodontics using modern devices that should be worn almost always (except when eating) due to their comfort and thus enable quick treatment.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Who can be treated?

 Everyone can get advice and treatment from us.

Treatment of children and adolescents

The optimal time to treat most tooth and jaw misalignments is adolescence, since the body's own growth can be used to correct misaligned jaws. In this way, the body's own growth can be used for correction. In addition, the change of teeth is guided, which reduces the duration of treatment with fixed braces. However, orthodontic treatment can also make sense in the deciduous teeth in order to prevent the development of jaw misalignments or to correct existing misalignments.

The range of treatments for children and adolescents includes:

  • Treating malfunctions and bad habits such as thumb sucking, tongue dysfunction, improper swallowing and lisp

  • Treatment of jaw misalignments such as enlarged overbite or overbite, reverse overbite or underbite, open bite, deep bite or crossbite 

  • Treatment of tooth misalignments such as misalignment of individual teeth, crowded teeth, gaps, teeth that have not erupted, non-aligned teeth or supernumerary teeth

Treatment of adults

More and more adults are opting for orthodontic treatment. A beautiful smile and a healthy chewing organ are now possible at any age. Thanks to modern methods, even completely inconspicuously - regardless of whether you are 20, 40, 60 or older.

Treatment risk
Orthodontic treatments are usually endured by the teeth, gums and jawbones without any problems. However, they are not entirely without risk. From time to time, the roots of the teeth can become a little shorter as scars from the treatment and it can happen in rare cases that a tooth loses its vitality, ie nerves and blood vessels die off. Such a tooth becomes dark and must be provided with a root filling and whitened by the dentist.
Orthodontic appliances do not cause caries or gingivitis, but make oral hygiene difficult. This promotes the formation of plaque, which in turn can lead to caries and gingivitis.
With good oral hygiene, the teeth can be kept free of plaque despite the appliance and thus be spared from tooth decay and plaque. The teeth should therefore be cleaned with a fluoride-containing toothpaste immediately after each meal, in accordance with the instructions of the orthodontist. Sweets should be avoided as much as possible. In the case of a fixed appliance, the teeth must be fluoridated daily with a mouthwash solution.

 

Duration of treatment

Orthodontic treatment takes an average of 2-3 years. This presupposes that both the patient and the parents accompany the treatment with understanding cooperation and active support.

Treatment success
Full treatment success can never be guaranteed in advance. This largely depends on the willing and understanding cooperation of patient and parents. In the event of insufficient cooperation, the treatment will therefore be terminated sensibly and by mutual agreement. If the patient finds that appliances can no longer be worn as instructed for any reason, or that defects have occurred, the orthodontist must be informed immediately.


Demarcation of orthodontics is a special specialist area within dentistry that requires an in-depth examination of the subject for correct application in practice. The patient therefore remains in the care of his family or school dentist during the orthodontic treatment, with whom he should be regularly checked for caries and treated if necessary. It is expressly pointed out that no conservative treatments are carried out as part of the planned orthodontic therapy

Start with a preliminary consultation.

In order to guarantee an optimal and effective treatment, a preliminary consultation and a comprehensive diagnosis is a prerequisite. Only after a precise diagnosis and your individual wishes can a suitable and individually suitable therapy path be determined. The necessary treatment agents and their costs are put together especially for you.
