Braces

Straight teeth look beautiful and are a prerequisite for normal functioning of the teeth. You would like to straighten your teeth and are looking for a suitable solution? Through modern treatment techniques, we can help patients of all ages achieve this goal predictably and comfortably. Here you will find information about braces. In addition, facts worth knowing about our practice and why we make the difference for our patients. 

For whom is braces suitable?

It is possible to move the teeth at any age. Depending on the complexity of the misalignment, a number of treatment methods can be considered for tooth correction. We are here for you and help you find solutions for your specific needs. 

When do you need fixed braces?

When teeth need to be moved in a very complex way, it is necessary to attach an appliance directly to the tooth. These are the so-called brackets. They can be attached to the tooth from the outside or from the inside. The brackets are connected to each other by flexible arches, which continuously correct the position of the teeth.

Ceramic brackets

By using white ceramic brackets, teeth can be corrected even with braces from the outside without a strong aesthetic impact. See in this video ceramic brackets from the outside from normal speaking distance live in use.

What is lingual braces?

"Lingua" is the Latin word for tongue. In dentistry, the word lingual is used to describe everything that is on the inside of the teeth and faces the tongue. Here it is also possible to attach brackets for tooth movement. These are not visible from the outside. This makes even complex tooth correction completely invisible to the surroundings possible. 

How do lingual braces work?

There is very little space on the inside of the teeth due to the tongue. This places special demands on the braces. At the beginning of the treatment, the teeth are digitized by means of a 3D scan. Subsequently, individual brackets are manufactured. Compared to external, prefabricated brackets, these are much finer and fit the teeth perfectly.

How long does the treatment with braces last?

Tooth straightening is a complex treatment. Every force results in a counterforce. For example, if a tooth is to be moved to the left, it creates a force vector to the right along the arch on the other teeth. The braces result in a continuous improvement of the teeth position. However, this takes time so that the teeth are not damaged. As a rule, treatment with fixed braces lasts about 1-1.5 years. 

How do you clean braces?

You should continue to take good care of your teeth normally. For this purpose, we recommend an electric toothbrush. The areas around the brackets require special attention. Here we recommend cleaning with interdental brushes or devices that produce an air-water spray.

At what age should children present to the orthodontist?

We recommend that you see us when your first permanent teeth erupt. This is usually in the sixth year of life. However, if the position of the teeth is conspicuous before this age, it is advisable to see us in advance. Many malocclusions can be corrected gently and easily by treatment during the growth period of the body. 

Loose braces

In addition to regulating malocclusions, removable braces also enable growth to be influenced. These so-called functional orthodontic appliances correct jaw malpositions particularly effectively when worn by children and adolescents during growth.

Invisible teeth straightening with Invisalign

In simple cases, invisible aligners are an alternative to fixed braces. With them, a comfortable and invisible correction of the tooth position is possible. 

What are aligners?

Aligners are wafer-thin, transparent dental splints. The splints are barely visible when worn and are removable. This means they can be easily integrated into everyday life and are particularly suitable for busy patients.

Braces before and after

Here you can see some treatment cases with fixed braces from our practice. Our results are widely published in the professional literature. All cases shown on our website were treated entirely in our practice. 

Correction crossbite

The patient was bothered by the crowded teeth in the lower jaw, which were already wearing down due to the misalignment. We were able to straighten the teeth with a dental correction and prevent further wear.

Braces from the inside

The patient was bothered by the massive misalignment of his teeth which severely affected his social life. We were able to straighten the teeth with fixed braces and give him back lost quality of life.

Braces from the inside and adhesive bridge

The patient was missing one of the two lateral incisors. This led to a tilting of the entire anterior teeth. In a complex treatment, all teeth were brought into the ideal position. A gap was created for the missing tooth. Subsequently, the missing tooth was replaced by an adhesive bridge.

Braces from the inside and veneers

The patient has been bothered by the crooked teeth for a long time. He wanted the treatment to close the gaps between his teeth and thus improve their aesthetics. We were able to achieve the goal with a tooth correction with internal braces, together with veneers.

Canine tooth setting

The patient had an upper canine tooth erupted on the inside. Through treatment with braces, we were able to correct the tooth position. This resulted in an esthetic improvement as well as normal function of the teeth. 

Tooth correction and veneers

In this complex case, the goal was to correct a very asymmetrical situation in the front teeth. At the beginning of the treatment, the teeth were brought into the correct position by means of braces. Due to the correct position, the gum line normalized by itself. Subsequently, the tooth proportions were idealized with veneers. 

It's about your health

Dental corrections are medical interventions. We believe that your health belongs in the hands of professionals. We have been a family-run practice since 1985 and specifically set ourselves apart from large practices and dental chains.
