Fixed invisible braces

The so-called Incognito braces are fixed, invisible braces attached lingually (on the tongue side). To do this, plaster models of the teeth are first created, which the orthodontist model in a wax impression so that the planned tooth position is simulated. The tooth model is scanned with the help of a 3D scanner. Then dental technicians make individual brackets out of gold. Brackets are anchoring points that are attached to the teeth. An arch of wire is placed through slots in the brackets, which gently moves the teeth into their target position through tension.

The Incognito braces are suitable for all ages and are very comfortable to wear thanks to their flat finish. Depending on the misaligned teeth, it stays in the mouth for between three months and 2.5 years.

Loose invisible braces

The Invisalign system is also known as clear braces because it uses clear aligners to correct teeth. First, silicone impressions of the dentition are read into a computer, which then divides and simulates the tooth correction course between the starting position and the end position into individual stages. Aligners are manufactured for every intermediate step – 10 to 20 pieces for simple corrections, 20 to 50 pieces for extensive corrections, and possibly even more. Each aligner must be worn approximately 22 hours a day for one to three weeks at a time.

If the strength of an aligner rail alone is not sufficient, so-called attachments – small plastic anchoring points – are glued onto the teeth. Your orthodontist will show you how to remove and change the aligners. The invisible braces should not be worn when eating or during oral hygiene (which should be done after every meal). Although the braces are transparent, if you look closer, they will still be visible. The system is not suitable for children changing teeth.
