Clear Aligners are invisible biocompatible plastic splints, which make possible the treatment of small tooth misalignments. The splints can be removed at any time and they are easy to clean.
Several individual splints are made during the treatment period, depending on the malposition, in order to allow the gradual movement of the teeth, until the teeth are moved to a correct position.
A positioner enables fine corrections of the tooth position as well as their retention. It is made of silicone and includes the upper and lower jaw. The teeth are set in the desired position in the laboratory using a setup model. The silicone splint made on this model contains “suction chambers”. The resulting negative pressure forces the teeth to move in the right position.
A Copyplast splint is a stable, biocompatible plastic splint that can be used to stabilize the treatment result.
A bioplast splint is a soft, biocompatible plastic splint. It serves as an initial solution for TMJ problems, as a bite splint in the cases of a deep bite, as an individual whitening splint or as a grinding splint.
The snoring splint consists of transparent biocompatible splints for the upper and lower jaw, which are connected through two side bars. The lower jaw is moved forward by this special connection and is held in this position. The forward movement of the lower jaw expands the throat and decreases the speed of the inhaled air. As a result, the snoring noise is reduced or completely disappears.
Removable Retention Appliance
Removable plastic appliances without active elements to stabilize the treatment result.
Consists of a delicate wire that stabilizes the teeth permanently. It is cemented to the inside surface of the incisors and canines and is practically invisible. After a short familiarization period, the retainer is very comfortable to wear. It is a particularly safe and recommendable method to ensure the long-term success of the orthodontic treatment for the patient.
A combined orthodontic and maxillofacial surgical treatment is possible for severe jaw misalignments. In this type of treatment, orthodontists and oral surgeons collaborate together. First of all, the dental misalignment is corrected in our practice, then the oral surgeon corrects the jaw misalignment. However, the surgical intervention can only take place after bone maturation. At the end of the combined treatment, an orthodontic fine adjustment of the bite will be accomplished with different appliances.
TMJ problems often occur in the form of TMJ noises, TMJ cracking, restricted mouth opening, with or without pain. The causes are various and diverse. For example, an incorrect bite due to incorrect dentures or jaw misalignment can lead to TMJ problems as well as myofunctional para functions such as pressing or grinding. After a detailed functional analysis, the orthodontist decides which therapy agent is convenient for the patient. Customised splints have been proved to be an effective treatment.
Professional Tooth Cleaning
Good oral hygiene is essential during orthodontic treatment. Teeth cleaning is particularly difficult when the appliance is stuck and deposits often stick. That is why our prophylactic assistants practice and explain how to properly and regularly brush your teeth and braces. In addition, if desired, the teeth are thoroughly cleaned, polished and fluoridated at every appointment.
Teeth Whitening | Bleaching
Unfortunately, our teeth get darker in the course of life. Coffee, tea or cigarettes are causes of this process. Many available tooth whitening products such as special toothpastes for whitening strips can damage the gums and / or the enamel. Therefore, we offer you a professional bleaching method. We manufacture individual splints and provide you with high-quality bleaching material according to your needs.
Teeth Cleaning | Airflow
Tooth cleaning with a special cleaning powder, that removes effectively the bacterial plaque and discoloration, which are caused, for example, by tea, coffee, wine, smoking or other consumption foods. During the cleaning with Airflow, a mixture of water and special salt is sprayed onto the tooth surfaces. The treated teeth are then polished to make it difficult for the plaque and different pigments to adhere again. Depending on the consumption of tea, coffee, etc. this type of teeth cleaning should be done about 1 to 2 times a year.
It protects the teeth from injuries during sports. Whether in soccer, cycling or martial arts
like boxes or karate, the teeth are very sensitive to injury. The consequences will mostly not be covered by the insurance.
The customised mouth guard will be established in the dental laboratory after the impressions are taken.
