Correct malpositioned teeth - without conspicuous braces
With Invisalign you will get the smile you have always wanted without much effort. In fact, you hardly need to change your usual everyday life for this. With Invisalign, malpositioned teeth are corrected by a series of aligners that are individually made for you and are therefore very comfortable. These removable splints are almost invisible on the teeth. Every one or two weeks you insert a new pair of aligners - and gradually, week by week, your teeth move to their intended final position. Comfortable, transparent and removable, without restrictions in daily life. More than 5 million patients have already been treated with Invisalign
The almost invisible tooth straightening treatment for your perfect smile.
With modern scanners and a special 3D computer technology, based on impressions of your teeth, a complete treatment is planned virtually and your individual splints are made. Each splint changes your tooth misalignment by approximately 0.2 mm.
Step by step to the perfect set of teeth.
The respective splints must be worn at least 18 hours a day, for a maximum of 14 days at a time. In order to create space, it may be necessary to reduce the contact points between the teeth. In the case of large tooth movements, inconspicuous tooth-coloured buttons (attachments) are glued to the teeth to increase the surface area and the "lever effect" (force anchor).
After treatment with aligners.
After completion of the treatment it is necessary to keep the teeth in the position they have reached. This is done with the help of a retainer. This can be done in the lower jaw with a small wire behind the teeth, or special thin splints can be worn at night in the upper and lower jaws. These also protect the teeth against tooth wear during nightly grinding.
Missing teeth and gaps between the teeth can lead to gum problems (due to the lack of protection provided by the teeth), periodontal pockets and an increased risk of periodontal disease.
A tooth condition can worsen over time and lead to very crooked teeth. This crowding can lead to increased plaque, tooth decay and a higher risk of gum disease.
A deep bite can cause gum problems or irritation and/or abrasion on the lower teeth and painful jaw and joint problems.
The cross bite causes one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth. This can cause tooth wear, gum disease and bone loss.
An open bite can interfere with chewing or make it painful and even affect pronunciation. It can also cause major problems, such as craniomandibular dysfunction (CMD)
What is Invisalign®?
The Invisalign treatment offers a practically invisible way to straighten the teeth. With modern 3D computer technology for imaging, Invisalign displays the complete treatment plan based on the prescription of your Invisalign user, from the original position of the teeth to the desired final position. Then a series of transparent aligners is made individually for your teeth to move them piece by piece.
Approximately every two weeks, you change to the next aligner, so that your teeth gradually move to the intended final position. The treatment time depends on your specific requirements and is determined by your Invisalign user.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign aligners move the teeth through precisely controlled movements. Unlike conventional braces, Invisalign treatment not only controls the range of movement of each aligner, but also the time of movement. Thus, in each treatment stage, only certain teeth are moved according to the Invisalign treatment plan for the respective stage. This results in an efficient power transmission.
How much does Invisalign cost?
As with other orthodontic treatment methods, the costs of Invisalign treatment depend on the complexity of your case for tooth straightening and the course of treatment. In general, the cost for adults is comparable to traditional fixed braces and is usually between €3,500 and €6,500, but if only minor tooth movement is required, prices can start at under €2,000. However, only the practitioner can determine the exact costs.
How long does the Invisalign treatment take?
The total duration depends on how complex the treatment is. In general, the duration of treatment corresponds to the length of a therapy with conventional braces. We can tell you more about this at your initial consultation.
