The revolution in orthodontics: transparent dental splints
An attractive, open and sincere smile is indispensable in today's world! It can help you make the right impression at work and in your free time.
But what can you do if tooth misalignments affect aesthetics or even have an impact on the chewing function? Classical braces often represent a limitation that patients would like to do without. Then the Invisalign® procedure is just the right thing!
Straight teeth thanks to the Invisalign® system – these are the advantages
It is not only experts who know the advantages of invisible braces that make orthodontics so popular. The dental splints:
- Enable orthodontic corrections of the entire teeth (other braces often only correct the front teeth)
- Are almost invisible, as they are flexible, transparent and wafer-thin
- Do not interfere with speech or laughter
- Are adapted exactly to the teeth
- Are removable and therefore do not cause problems when eating or drinking
- Are easy to clean – with toothbrush and water or special braces cleaners
- Are suitable for all ages – children, teenagers and adults
So you have even more reason to smile!

Questions about invisible orthodontics
Can you really not see the Invisalign?
The Invisalign trays/aligners are almost invisible because they are flexible, transparent and wafer-thin. They do not obstruct speaking or laughing and are not noticed by the person opposite of you.
Does the Invisalign remain in the mouth while eating and drinking?
The aligners (trays) are worn 22 hours a day – just like “normal braces”. However, they are removed for eating and before some drinks are consumed. This means that the patient has no problems or restrictions when eating. With fixed braces, he or she is not able to eat hard or sticky foods to keep the braces from being damaged.
How can I clean the Invisalign?
You can clean the Invisalign easily with a toothbrush and water. There are also special braces cleaners, which we would gladly inform you about. Just contact us if necessary.
