Invisalign® is a system that corrects misaligned teeth with the help of a series of almost invisible and individually manufactured, removable aligners. These so-called aligners are changed independently by the patient every one to two weeks, so that the teeth move step by step into the correct position until the desired treatment goal is achieved.
Invisalign® is a method of orthodontically correcting slight to moderate tooth misalignments of any kind without great impairment for the patient. With this treatment option it is possible to straighten teeth efficiently and gently in a relatively manageable period of time. Invisalign® trays are made of biocopatible SmartTrack material and can be removed for eating, drinking and brushing teeth. Because of this, the patient hardly feels any restrictions in everyday life. Invisalign® treatment is suitable for adults and teenagers.
Dr. von Dörnberg has many years of experience and a high level of competence in aligner therapy and will be happy to advise you on the possibilities of inconspicuous tooth correction.
After a detailed orthodontic consultation with Dr. von Dörnberg, specialist dentist for orthodontics, an orthodontic and impression-free initial diagnosis including 3D scan and other state-of-the-art procedures is carried out.
An individual treatment plan including 3D simulation (ClinCheck®) of the treatment result is created. The aligners are then custom-made for the individual patient.
The aligners are worn daily for approx. 22 hours. This is the only way to ensure successful and effective tooth movement.
At intervals of one to two weeks, the patient changes the aligners independently to the next aligner set.
The progress of the treatment is checked every 6-8 weeks in the practice by the specialist dentist for orthodontics, Dr. von Dörnberg. This is the only way to ensure that the treatment is correct, safe and as desired.
At the end of the treatment, everyone can enjoy the new smile together!
Conventional orthodontic treatment uses fixed braces (brackets). Invisalign braces, on the other hand, are removable and almost invisible on the teeth.
The modern method consists of transparent dental trays (aligners) that are made individually for the patient from so-called SmartTrack material.
The aligners are worn for about 22 hours a day and regularly changed by the patient every one to two weeks. At check-ups, which take place every six to eight weeks, the correct fit of the aligners and the course of treatment are checked. With each change of splint, the teeth are brought into the correct and previously planned position step by step. Progress is already visible after a short time.
The total treatment time depends on the original malocclusion and initial situation. The aligners can be easily removed for eating, brushing or important appointments, which is a decisive advantage of this system. There is virtually no interference in everyday life.
Invisalign® can be used to correct mild to moderate tooth misalignments. Biomechanically, there is a limited range of indications. For this reason, it is very important to carry out a comprehensive clinical diagnosis and initial consultation in order to assess and classify the misalignment of the teeth for the suitability of treatment with Invisalign.
In most cases, Invisalign treatment is suitable for adults and teenagers.
Invisalign is the market leader in aligner therapy. Therefore, only the most modern technologies are used for the production of the aligners. By means of a 3D intraoral scan of the teeth and a 3D printing process, the highest precision and an impression-free treatment is guaranteed.
Transparent Invisalign aligners allow both simple and complex corrections to be made faster than with traditional braces.
Some private health insurance companies now cover the costs of Invisalign treatment. To be on the safe side, check with your health insurance provider.
Invisalign® is a modern and almost invisible method of straightening teeth using the latest 3D computer technology. A successive series of transparent trays is custom-made and worn according to an individual treatment plan until the teeth are in the desired position.
The splints are changed independently by the patient at home every one to two weeks. Dr. von Dörnberg regularly checks the progress of the treatment every six to eight weeks. The total duration of treatment depends on the type and severity of the original malocclusion, and in most cases ranges from 6 to a maximum of 18 months.
Invisalign® treatment consists of several transparent dental trays, also called aligners. These aligners are programmed in steps to move the teeth into the desired position. The range of movement and timing of movement are precisely controlled. The 3D treatment plan (ClinCheck®) determines which teeth are moved and when.
The cost of treatment with Invisalign® depends on the complexity of the malocclusion and whether treatment is required in one jaw or simultaneously in the upper and lower jaws. Accordingly, there is a cost variance depending on the extent of treatment required.
The statutory health insurance companies do not pay for Invisalign® treatment. Private health insurances and supplementary insurances usually cover Invisalign® treatment if an appropriate insurance contract has been concluded, but this should always be clarified in detail in advance.
The attachments are small, tooth-coloured fasteners/plastic bodies on the teeth. These small moulds are attached to the teeth at the beginning of the Invisalign® treatment and are removed without leaving any residue after the treatment. Similar to grips, they ensure a good hold of the splints and support the controlled tooth movements. Attachments are not necessary in all cases, but are planned and used individually as needed.
For quick cleaning of the aligners in between, we recommend lukewarm water and a toothbrush without toothpaste. Toothpaste can make the aligners look dull and opaque.
For more intensive cleaning, the treatment package includes Invisalign® cleaning crystals that are dissolved in water. The aligners can then be rinsed with lukewarm water. Hot water should not be used to avoid deformation of the aligner plastic.
