The duration of orthodontic treatment should be as short as biologically possible. We are able to accomplish this feat by applying the most modern bracing systems and different techniques alongside an approach that is thorough and systematic. Because treatment times hold such importance among our patients, we will plan treatment duration precisely and tell the patients how many month it will be before we start. We will usually maintain this schedule with little or no deviation – both being totally unusual in German orthodontic offices.
In contrast to other offices in Germany, it is common for us to allow patients access to our extensive photograph collection, all of which being documents from previous treatments that can be used as a deciding factor of a future procedure and also shown after a treatment is completed to show the changes.
In order to finalize the arrival to the goal of the treatment, 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 an fixed retainer lasting life-long. We are honest enough to tell our patients this: whoever is serious about attaining the perfect aesthetics should at least consider getting a life-long stabilizer for the incisors.
