Braces for adults

Beautiful and straight teeth have an incredible charisma. We specialize in the technically complex treatment of adult patients with braces. We also know about the special organizational requirements of busy patients. Here you will find information about braces for adults. In addition, facts worth knowing about our practice and why we make the difference for our patients.

What makes braces special for adults?

Teeth are not firmly attached to the bone. When a force is applied to a tooth, targeted tooth movement is possible regardless of age. Children and adolescents benefit from the growth processes that take place. Since these are absent in adult patients, treatment is technically demanding. 

Why do teeth increasingly shift with age?

The face and jaws grow and change throughout life. Similar to the change in vision or hearing. These growth processes, together with the increasing wear of the teeth, lead to tooth movement. If you don't want this to happen, you have to actively do something about it. We recommend a fixed retainer or wearing a night splint after every orthodontic treatment. This way you are on the safe side that you can maintain your achieved result in the long term.

How often are appointments at the practice?

We understand the special needs of busy patients. It is very important to us to value your time. That's why we organize treatments so that as much as possible takes place together at the appointments. On-site check-up appointments are approximately every 6-8 weeks for treatment with braces. 

How long does it take to straighten teeth in adults?


Slight malocclusions can be comfortably treated with invisible dental splints. In this case, treatment usually takes about three to twelve months.


Fixed braces

Complex tooth movements require fixed braces. These can be attached to the teeth from the inside or from the outside. Depending on the complexity of the situation, treatment takes approximately 1-1.5 years.

Is life affected by braces?

With the insertion of fixed braces, some changes will come to you. Brushing your teeth will become a little more difficult and take a little more time. In general, you can continue to eat whatever you like. You should only refrain from chewing gum and other strongly sticky foods. We will be happy to explain to you in detail what you need to bear in mind. 

How to clean braces?

Proper dental hygiene is even more important than usual with the insertion of fixed braces. In addition to cleaning the teeth, we recommend the daily use of interdental brushes and dental floss. You should use the interdental brushes to additionally clean the critical areas around the brackets and the gumline. 

Which braces are suitable for adults?

There is a suitable treatment alternative for every tooth misalignment. With transparent dental splints, misalignments of the teeth visible when smiling can be corrected quickly and comfortably. Complex malocclusions require direct force transmission to the teeth with so-called brackets. These can be attached to the teeth from the outside or from the inside. In the case of internal brackets, the treatment is invisible to the surroundings.


Many people want straight teeth, but are reluctant to undergo treatment with fixed braces. Here, teeth straightening with transparent dental trays is a very good treatment option. the transparent dental trays straighten the teeth in the visible area in just three to twelve months.
