The Invisalign method is suitable for treatments ranging from a smaller to a medium extent. The so called aligners are thin, transparent molds which are barely noticeable and do not have any impact on speaking. They are only removed for eating, drinking and brushing the teeth and have to be worn all day. We have started utilizing Invisalign as one of the first offices in Germany, treated over 100 patients and know the possibilities and limits of this system quite well. Though little special knowledge is needed, not all orthodontists offer the Invisalign system.
For aligner treatments of a very smaller extent, we do not have our aligners made by Invisalign in the U.S. but by a dental technician in Mannheim. This is a lot more cost-efficient with the same quality. For more extensive treatments Invisalign is to be preferred.
