We analyse the initial condition of your teeth during the first assessment, using imprints, X-rays, and photographs. These data are used to draft a tailored treatment and cost schedule. This schedule also includes the probable duration of the therapy. Of course, we will also discuss the treatment procedure with you in detail.
The duration of the therapy depends strongly on the initial condition of your teeth. It usually ranges between three months and two years. The great advantage of splints as a corrective measure is that they are virtually invisible from the outside. This means you can keep smiling and talking just like before — even during important meetings at work.
The plastic splint is cut to fit your gum line, allowing you to wear the aligners without any significant impediments. They should remain in your mouth for around 22 hours per day. Having said that, they do not restrict any of your daily activities: You can remove the aligners when eating or brushing your teeth.
Before we insert the first transparent splints, we glue small attachments onto the teeth. These small “buttons” allow us to guide the teeth optimally during the treatment.
The splints are changed after one or two weeks to straighten the teeth step by step. We will schedule follow-up appointments with you once every six weeks to assess the progress of your splint therapy. If necessary, we will, of course, adjust the aligners to ensure that you have the set of teeth you always dreamed of in the shortest possible time.
After completing the treatment we recommend wearing retainers. These thin arches, which are invisible from the outside, keep the teeth in place, ensuring that the results of the teeth correction are preserved. You can also wear slightly firmer, transparent splints as retainers.
