Invisalign

Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment that uses clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth. The aligners are custom made for the patient's teeth. Each aligner is worn about 20 hours a day for about a week. Each week, the patient switches to a new set of aligners, which gradually move the teeth into the desired position. The aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed for eating, brushing and flossing. This makes the treatment especially attractive for busy patients. Invisalign treatment is typically used for mild to moderate cases of misaligned teeth and bite problems. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign does not use brackets or wires, which means they are more comfortable and do not restrict eating. Do you want to beautify your teeth and are looking for a suitable solution? We will be happy to provide you with professional support in finding a solution for your specific needs.

With artificial intelligence to success

With Invisalign treatment, the crooked teeth are digitized using precise 3D scanning. Now the latest technology with artificial intelligence is used. The teeth are moved into the correct position by the computer. Afterwards, the result is checked by Dr. Nicole Horvath, corrected if necessary and the dental splints are made. 

What are the benefits of aligners?

In addition to the aesthetic impairment, crooked teeth are also a medical problem. They can lead to increased wear of the teeth and problems with oral hygiene. When problems occur, it is important to correct their causes rather than treat the symptoms. This is the only way to solve problems in a predictable, long-term and satisfactory manner. Invisible treatment with aligners can straighten crooked teeth. During treatment, the teeth are brought into the correct position splint by splint, i.e. week by week. 

Are aligners suitable for everyone?

Treatment with aligners is possible at any age without any problems. Adolescents and adult patients alike benefit from the advantages of the treatment method.

Most malocclusions can be corrected comfortably with removable aligners. However, if teeth need to be corrected very extensively, this requires fixed braces. Invisible solutions are also available here. We will be happy to advise you. 

Comfort for busy people

During Invisalign treatment, crooked teeth are gradually brought into the correct position using invisible dental splints. The splints are barely visible when worn and are removable. This means they can be easily integrated into everyday life. They are particularly suitable for busy patients and can be removed for important appointments.

Can you speak well with Invisalign?

Many patients worry that they will be more difficult to understand during treatment with invisible dental splints. We can also say from our own experience: this is not the case. You can speak normally throughout the entire treatment period. 

Can I eat and drink with Invisalign?

A major advantage of Invisalign is that the splints can be removed for eating. This allows you to eat and drink without restrictions. When you drink water you can leave the aligners in your mouth. Drinking unsweetened tea or coffee is also possible with aligners without any problems. Before inserting the splint, we recommend cleaning your teeth. This is not always possible on the road. In this case, we recommend rinsing the teeth with water and then reinserting the aligners.

Before and after

Invisalign before and after

How long does Invisalign take?

The duration of treatment depends on the necessary correction. Each splint brings you one step closer to the result. Simple corrections are already completed after approx. three months. A moderately severe correction takes about six months. Complex treatments take about 1-1.5 years. 

How do aligners work?

In weekly intermediate steps comfortable, fast and easy to beautiful and straight teeth. 

How often do I change the aligners?

With a daily wearing time of 20 hours, the aligners can be changed after seven days. If this is not compatible with the daily routine and habits, this is not a problem because the treatment schedule can be adjusted. If the aligners can be worn for less than 20 hours, the aligners are changed not after seven but after eight, ten or 14 days. You will notice very well yourself when you can change to the next splint. As soon as the aligners can be taken in and out without pressure, you can switch to the next splint. This means that Invisalign treatment adapts to your lifestyle and not vice versa.

How long a day do you wear the aligners?

We recommend 20 hours as the daily wearing time for Invisalign aligners. This wearing time allows you to change the aligners on a weekly basis. If the aligners can be worn for less than 20 hours, the treatment schedule can be adapted to the shorter wearing time. 

How do you clean teeth and aligners with Invisalign?

The aligners are removed from the mouth to clean the teeth. Then oral hygiene is performed as usual. We recommend cleaning the teeth twice a day for two minutes with an electric toothbrush. Toothpaste with 1500ppm fluoride should be used. Once a day we recommend cleaning the interdental spaces with dental floss. For the care of the aligners, we recommend cleaning them twice a day with toothbrush and your normal toothpaste. 

What are Aligner Attachments?

If teeth are to be moved in a complex manner, so-called attachments are required for tooth movement. These are small retaining elements made of tooth-colored plastic. They are attached to the teeth that need to be moved in a complex manner for the duration of the treatment.
 

How painful is Invisalign?

When teeth are moved, remodeling processes occur in the bone that can generally be described as unpleasant. Real pain does not usually occur. The first splint is usually the most difficult. When inserting the splint, patients notice a feeling of pressure or tension, but usually no pain. However, this feeling of pressure or tension subsides after a few minutes. We recommend that you remove the splints about 5-10 minutes before eating, so that you can eat normally. Otherwise, the first bite may be a little uncomfortable, but this will subside after a short time.

How often do you have to come to the office for Invisalign?

Your time is precious. Through good organization and investment in modern technology, we can reduce the number of necessary appointments to a minimum. This saves you unnecessary trips. 

Few appointments

Splint treatment is usually possible with only a few appointments. At the first appointment, we prepare all the necessary documents and create the individual treatment plan based on a 3D scan of your teeth. The splints can already be inserted at the second appointment. Subsequently, you change the splints yourself at home. At the end, we check the result together and stabilize the treatment success permanently. 

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.
