Precisely planned, effectively treated
The duration of orthodontic treatment should be as short as biologically possible with gentle working methods and top results. In our practice in Mannheim, we are able to accomplish this by applying the most modern orthodontic appliances and different techniques alongside an approach that is thorough and systematic. Because treatment times hold such importance among our patients, our team of orthodontists will plan treatment duration precisely and tell the patients how many months it will take before we start. We will usually maintain this schedule with little or no deviation – both being totally unusual in German orthodontic offices. Regardless of findings, it’s common standard in Germany to always extend the treatment time of young patients up to four years. In our practice in Mannheim, our treatment times are usually about half as long as is usual in Germany.
In contrast to other offices in Germany, it is common for us to diagnose and document all treatments with digital photographs (portraits and dental photos) which serve the patient as a decision-making aid in the course of treatment planning. After completion of treatment and we hand them over in original quality.
We have been among the first orthodontists in Germany who have offered invisible orthodontic treatment with the lingual technique (since 1999) and also among the first to have aligner treatments with Invisalign® in our range of orthodontic services (since 2001). Moreover, we have been using orthodontic mini implants for anchoring for almost 20 years. Our orthodontic team shows a great wealth of experience and a routine using these new techniques.
Our idea is that a single orthodontic treatment should last for life. That’s why all of our orthodontists attach great importance to the long-term stabilization of the treatment outcome. Therefore, an individual concept of retention in order to stabilize treatment results long time is a part of the treatment. The retention phase varies depending on it being a couple of months with a removable aligner or being a fixed retainer lasting life-long.
In our pratice in Mannheim, we are honest enough to tell our patients: whoever is serious about attaining the perfect aesthetics, should at least consider getting a life-long stabilizer for the incisors.
