Step by step
Step by step
We use your diagnostic records (models, X-rays and photos) to plan your treatment and specify timings. We then explain each step to you in detail in an in-depth consultation. In this
session we also explain the different treatment options and describe the various types of braces available.
We use a whole range of braces to treat our patients, selected in accordance with the extent of tooth malalignment. Depending on the type selected, they will not only influence the
position of the teeth and jaw, but can also improve the chewing pattern and facilitate lip closure.
This is how it works: brackets (small metal locks) are bonded onto the teeth and are connected up with highly elastic archwires and small rubber bands or stainless steel wires (ligatures). This enables us to apply precisely the right amount of pressure to the teeth needed to make them move to the desired position in the jaw. Sometimes it also makes sense to use additional rubber bands or other aids, but this is something the patient decides for him or herself.
Spoilt for choice
Self-ligating brackets are a state-of-the-art variation of the fixed appliance. Their advantage is that they exert gentle pressure on the teeth, offer more efficient and thus shorter
treatment periods, and that there are longer gaps between appointments. They are also easier to clean and therefore more convenient for the patient.
You don’t want your fixed braces to be noticeable? There are alternatives to the shining metal brackets: ceramic brackets the colour of your teeth, transparent brackets made of sapphire,
or invisible brackets attached to the inside of your teeth (lingual brackets).
If you don’t want anything to be seen, but don’t want that to mean missing out on healthy, well-aligned teeth, why not choose lingual braces? The brackets are bonded to the back of the
teeth, making your fixed braces invisible to others. And we can use lingual techniques to correct any tooth malalignment that could be treated with traditional, visible fixed braces.
We will be happy to advise you on what to expect and the cost of lingual brackets in our practice.
Almost invisible yet very effective
Invisalign® braces are transparent aligners that must be worn around the clock, but can be taken out for around two hours each day. They are very thin and thus very comfortable to wear.
Their advantage is that eating, dental care, engaging in sports or playing an instrument are all a lot easier and more convenient than with other braces.
