An Aligner treatment consists of several splints that move the patient's teeth into the desired position step by step. To achieve the desired results, the Aligners should be worn at least for 22 hours a day.
Some tooth movements may require small orthodontic aids. The so-called auxiliaries help to achieve an ideal end result.
Attachments are small tooth-coloured plastic elements that are fixed to the teeth so that the Aligners can better exert pressure on the teeth. After treatment, they are removed painlessly, easily and without leaving any residue.
The small buttons, which are connected with elastics, additionally support tooth movement. The elastics are either attached directly to the splints or small buttons are glued to the non-visible part of the teeth. These aids are necessary especially when the position of the bite should be improved.
The elasticity of the elastics decreases over time and should therefore be replaced regularly. With the help of small plastic hooks, this is simple and easy.
Bite ramps are small pyramid-shaped structures made of plastic that are placed onto the back side of the teeth in the upper or lower jaw to reduce contact between the upper and lower teeth. For certain tooth movements, bite ramps are the most effective solution.
We need a panoramic X-ray before starting your treatment. If you do not have one, we would be happy to take one for you.
With the help of a lateral cephalometric radiograph, we can assess the position of the lower jaw in relation to the upper jaw and make a growth prediction.
In most cases, we can correct minor tooth damage on the spot.
Depending on the complexity of your treatment, you might need attachments: small tooth-coloured composite abutments that support tooth movement with Aligners.
Small elastics and buttons are often used to provide additional support for tooth movement. They are attached either directly to the splints or to the back teeth.
