Discussion of the individual treatment plan.
As part of this appointment, the treatment plan with the individual therapeutic steps and the necessary treatment equipment will be explained in detail. Of course, we will reserve a lot of time for you to discuss all aspects with you and are available to answer any questions you may have.
The actual orthodontic treatment
The orthodontic treatment is divided into an active part, in which a correction of the tooth or jaw position takes place, as well as the so-called retention phase, which stabilizes the treatment result and keeps the teeth in the new, desired position. For this purpose, a wire is firmly glued behind the anterior teeth a so-called retainer, or removable braces are used.
