Dental Braces - tailored to your individual need

Every patient has different needs. Every jaw and teeth is absolutely unique. Hence an individually designed treatment plan is created for each of our patients.

As a general rule, the course of an orthodontic treatment can be divided into four stages:

Consultation

Each treatment starts with a personal and non-binding consultation in our dental practice. In this stage of the process, you get to know the medical team and our premises. Moreover, you already receive important information on the possible treatment options for the orthodontic problem. We discuss your wishes and expectations and create an up-to-date orthopantogram of your teeth.

Analysis

Diverse diagnostic findings must be present for an individual treatment plan. Our team thus compiles a detailed analysis of your tooth or jaw misalignment. This includes impressions of both jaws, x-ray images to enable evaluation of the teeth and jawbones, as well as photos of the face, the profile and the teeth. Based upon the analysis, we compile your individual treatment plan, outlining our recommended steps for the treatment of your misalignment.

Treatment / Control

Irrespective of whether your treatment plan envisages a fixed or removable dental brace, regular check-up and treatment appointments should be unconditionally adhered to throughout the entire treatment (generally over a period of several years!). In the process, treatment progress will be documented and the dental braces adjusted to the new position of the teeth.

Retention phase / post-treatment

Following the successful correction of the tooth- or jaw misalignment, the fixed dental brace is removed and the teeth get thoroughly cleaned. However, the result is not yet permanent at this point in time. It should be stabilized by means of a fixed retainer in order to prevent a return to the misalignment.
