Nature provides everyone…
… with 32 teeth. However, there is often not enough space for all these teeth. In other cases, the position of the jaws does not permit the teeth to come together correctly. Teeth can get lost in the jaw or individual teeth are not there at all. We can solve all of these problems.
Before orthodontic treatment can be started, an accurate inventory is required. It consists of the following:
- Detailed examination of the patient
- Preparation of situation models and their measurement
- Radiovisiography and computer-assisted analysis
- Prediction of the treatment objective
Aesthetics and efficiency… Regulation of teeth
Activator & Bionator
... the body is a single unit - all of its parts influence and are influenced by each other.
Malpositioning of jaws, either inherited or acquired, may be treated with removable, functional orthodontic appliances when the patients is still in the growth phase. Activators and Bionators activate in-built sources of energy, e.g., masseter, lip, tongue or cheek muscles. During the growth phase, the appliance stimulates the muscles to bring upper and lower jaw into their respective correct positions. The appliance can be compared to a fitness machine that produces physiological muscular balance in the mouth.
Brackets are specified as elements which are glued onto teeth. Together with a high-elastic treatment-arc they are applied when fixed plates are needed. In order to fasten the arc onto the brackets, gummy rings ans threads are being used. Self-ligating brackets, though, habe a special fastener for the treatment-arc. Brackets are suitable for persons at any age. Basically, a comparison between the two systems should be done in order to come to know the individual advantages or disadvantages.
Bleaching of teeth
This is a cosmetic procedure involving careful bleaching of natural teeth. Persistent discolouration, which professional dental cleaning cannot remove, is bleached using active oxygen. Bleaching can be done either in the surgery or at home. However, the procedure should not be carried out over a longer period without dental guidance. Following treatment with the fixed brace, bleaching is another way to give you a dazzling smile.
