An orthodontist treats dental and jaw displacement. These are common causes of chronic diseases (such as gastric and intestinal problems due to poor chewing and bite functions, bad posture and resulting back pain, twisted back, headaches caused by tension, and so forth).
If someone falls down, for example, protruding teeth are particularly at risk. Crowded teeth are difficult to clean and can cause cavities and gum disease. A deep bite can cause damage to the surrounding tissue. Improper bite functions (such as crossbite) may make your face look skewed and cause asymmetry throughout your body. The main purpose of orthodontics is to prevent the development of these medical conditions. Especially for children, a regular check-up and, if necessary, the right treatment is highly recommended.
Beautiful teeth and an appealing smile are also the calling card of every person. When you look at someone, the first thing that you see is their face, especially their mouth—so why not correct any misalignment if possible? Neat and straight teeth and a beautiful smile contribute greatly to a pleasing and well-groomed appearance and boost self-confidence at any age. Especially if you wear Invisalign Braces, which are almost invisible, there is no reason to miss out on a beautiful smile.
An orthodontist must always keep the whole person in mind—and the orthodontists at the KU64 offices in Berlin are careful to do this with their holistic therapy concept.
Only an orthodontist or a dentist with orthodontic experience can determine whether orthodontic treatment for functional or cosmetic reasons is required. To make a diagnosis, a complete medical and dental health history, a clinical examination, impressions of the teeth, and special X-rays and photographic images are necessary. Based on the data obtained, the orthodontist or dentist can decide whether orthodontic treatment is recommended in a specific case and can work out a suitable treatment plan for the patient in order to obtain beautiful, straight teeth.
If any of the following applies to you, you may be a candidate for orthodontic treatment:
Fixed braces or surgery are not always necessary. There are many different devices, both fixed and removable, which can help move teeth by applying slight pressure to the jaw and teeth, thus causing muscles to adjust, as well as influencing jaw growth. Based on the nature and severity of the problem, the orthodontist will determine what treatment has the greatest promise of success in each case: The most common orthodontic braces, such as multi-bracket devices, consist of brackets, ribbons, or wires. Bands are fixed to the teeth and used as an anchor for the device, whereas brackets are usually attached to the front surface of a tooth. Whether brackets, Invisalign, or Incognito, the dentists in our orthodontics department will find out which intervention is best for you from the available repertoire of the dental profession.
Yes, it's not just for children! As long as teeth are sufficiently anchored to the bone, orthodontic treatment for people who are 30, 40, or 50 years old can be successfully carried out—it just takes a bit longer. The treatment will depend on the needs of the patient.
Everything for your smile!
Each bite is as individual as its owner. Therefore, an essential element for the success of treatment is a treatment concept tailored to each individual case. Regular training and continuing education for our dental team in Berlin guarantees competence at the highest level and orthodontic treatment that takes into account the whole person.
The dental specialists at our practice are in constant communication in order to create the best treatment plan for you. This is why our patients benefit from our unique concept of direct approaches, optimal staff coordination, and the latest high-tech equipment. Recent developments in techniques and materials, for example, have made possible the development of metal-free and virtually invisible braces, which are of course available at KU64. And by the way, we only use tested and compatible materials and provide long-term guarantees—much longer than customary.
Our office has its own dental laboratory with many years of experience, which enables us to assure that our patients receive only the highest quality bio-compatible materials.
