A beautiful smile can change your life!

Incorrectly positioned teeth can be easily and discreetly adjusted nowadays with so-called aligners. These are a revolutionary solution in contemporary orthodontics. The transparent plastic aligners are custom-made for each patient and gently encourage the teeth to move to the required position. The time needed to realign teeth is very individual and might be several months, in some cases a couple of years. However, it is in general shorter than when using conventional braces. This new type of readjustment solution is virtually invisible, with no sharp edges or brackets, for greater comfort, and can be easily removed for eating and cleaning. Aligners are therefore a highly popular choice for children and adults alike.

Using aligners

Aligners can be used to correct anything from minor problems to complex repositioning of teeth:
a) If front teeth are too close together, causing individual teeth to twist or overlap
b) If you have gaps between teeth because teeth are missing, are too small or have moved out of alignment.

Duration of therapy

After an initial examination and diagnosis, the length of time needed can be estimated, depending on the extent and complexity of the misalignment. You can usually expect treatment to last between 3 and 12 months. Before treatment begins, a virtual model of your teeth will be created and the expected result shown on the computer. For optimum results we recommend wearing the aligner for 20 to 22 hours a day. About every two to three weeks, you will have a checkup and your aligner will be changed. Over time you can expect to wear several different ones, each moving or turning your teeth a little more. Even if the therapy with aligners takes 12 months to complete, this is still shorter than conventional solutions with braces.
