For a permanently healthy and seamlessly beautiful set of teeth
Most people visit the orthodontist because they want a beautiful smile.
Although an attractive smile is an important goal of treatment, orthodontics also takes care of the long-term health of your teeth .
Correcting your bite can prevent problems in the future:
- Gerade Zähne erleichtern die Zahnpflege,- das bedeutet Karies-Vorsorge.
- Gute Zahnstellung verringert die Gefahr von Zahnfleischerkrankungen.
- Gute Zahnstellung vermindert den Abrieb der Zähne.
- Eine korrekte Verzahnung schützt die Kiefergelenke und hilft, Nacken- und Kaumuskulatur zu entlasten.
- Ein verbesserter Lippenschluss vermindert die Anfälligkeit für Erkältungen und trägt zur Kariesprophylaxe bei.
- Die Veränderung der Zahnstellung und die Erweiterung eines engen Oberkiefers hilft atypische Schluckweisen, Zungenstellung und Zungenfunktion zu verbessern.
- Eine verbesserte Kauleistung hilft Verdauungsvorgänge zu normalisieren.
We improve functionality while increasing attractiveness
There are different ways to treat orthodontics and different orthodontists may have different goals.
What you can expect from us
What should you pay attention to?
Although an attractive smile can be achieved simply by straightening teeth, the new smile will not last long unless the bite is corrected at the same time. Problems such as crooked teeth, gum problems (periodontitis), temporomandibular joint disease (TMD) and tooth wear will occur or recur if the function of your bite is not corrected at the same time.
I focus on providing my patients with good masticatory function AND an attractive smile . It is therefore of the utmost importance to me to ensure that at the end of the treatment your teeth are embedded in healthy bone and in correct relation to your temporomandibular joints. You can only enjoy your smile for a long time if your chewing apparatus works properly.
Treatment for children
With the utmost care and sensitivity
The treatment method for children depends on many factors that the orthodontist must consider, such as:
- Alter des Kindes
- Entwicklung des Kindes
- Gesundheitliche Aspekte
Treatment in deciduous and mixed dentition
Children who still have milk teeth are only treated to provide the best possible environment for the permanent teeth to erupt. The aim of the treatment is either to correct the jaw position so that the upper and lower jaws fit together well, or to create space for the permanent teeth to erupt, or to regulate serious misalignments of individual teeth. It is not our goal to aesthetically improve the alignment of the incisors in mixed dentition. During this phase of life, incisors often have gaps or are rotated. These are perfectly natural processes and often improve without treatment. Treatment in mixed dentition generally lasts between 12 and 18 months.
Treatment of the permanent dentition
The position of the permanent teeth is mainly corrected with fixed appliances, mostly after the eruption of the second molars (“12-year molars”). The average duration of treatment is about two years.
Treatment for adults
We’ll straighten your teeth and make you feel better
What you should consider during orthodontic treatment
Beautiful teeth not only signal youthfulness through an attractive smile, but are also a symbol of health and vitality. It is important to note that teeth stay healthy longer when they are in the right position.
Crooked teeth that are not caused by misaligned jaws can be corrected with orthodontics alone. If desired, almost invisible braces can be used.
Of course, after the end of the growth phase, you can no longer intervene to “grow” as is the case with children. If the upper and lower jaw do not match in adults, the position of the jaw can be corrected with a combined orthodontic and maxillofacial surgery treatment. In this case, the orthodontist first straightens the teeth with the help of braces, then the oral surgeon corrects the jaw position.
This treatment requires optimal cooperation between the orthodontist and the oral surgeon. In this way, excellent results can be achieved even in difficult initial situations.
