These days more and more patients want their teeth straightened with braces that are invisible and with as little impact as possible on their everyday life. And the modern treatment methods available now can fulfil both of these wishes.
The Twin Aligner System by orthocaps® will give you the most beautiful smile.
Your treatment involves nearly invisible, removable aligners, which you will change every three weeks for a new set. Each aligner is custom-made to fit over your teeth. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to their final position. Two different types of materials allow for accurate tooth movement: during the day you wear the thinner hardCAPS and at night the thicker softoCAPS.
For the aligners your dentist will take an impression of your natural teeth (upper and lower jaw) and then send these impressions (moulds) to the orthocaps® team, together with photos and x-ray images. Using special software, the models are scanned and plans for the aligners will be mapped on the computer. The plans will then be sent back to your dentist, who will check the simulated tooth movements together with you. Only then are the aligners manufactured and dispatched within two weeks.
An orthocaps® treatment lasts between 9 and 12 months and is always subject to the initial position of your teeth.
The aligners are removed for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing. This means you can continue with your usual oral hygiene and can clean your teeth despite having braces.
This method is particularly suitable for crooked or misaligned teeth, wide gaps or narrow teeth. It is not suitable for the treatment of complicated misalignments (e.g. open bite).
