Why are my teeth shifting?
Teeth are not firmly stuck in the jaw, but can shift over years due to pressure. Often the reason is a lack of space, which leads to displacement, especially of the front teeth, over longer periods of time. Due to the cramped position of the teeth, anterior teeth start to be rotated by the pressure, or they tilt away to the front or back.
To ensure that the treatment result lasts a lifetime, we hold your teeth in their new position after tooth correction using either removable or fixed retainers. The removable retainer does not have to be worn all the time, of course, but only at night.
Tooth position correction
Gentle and invisible
What exactly happens
With invisible braces, the teeth are gently and continuously brought into an aesthetically and functionally better position over a period of several months. The treatment is painless and hardly noticeable from the outside.

How much does the treatment with invisible braces cost?
There is an individual solution to your specific problem. Before the start of treatment, we will prepare a cost plan for you.
How long does the treatment with invisible braces last?
Aligners, or invisible braces are usually worn for 6 to 18 months.
Can I eat and brush my teeth with those braces?
Invisible braces are taken out for eating and brushing your teeth.
Do the teeth have to be made narrower for the treatment?
If there is a lack of space, "slicing" may be necessary. This involves minimally narrowing individual teeth in particularly bulbous areas without affecting the health of the tooth.
The gentle tooth position correction
Have you wanted straight teeth for a long time? Or you would like to correct that one crooked tooth in the front? Tooth position correction with the help of so called "Aligners" can do just that. 'Invisible' means that, in contrast to conventional treatment with fixed braces, the teeth are moved using transparent braces: This is referred to as invisible orthodontics. The average duration of treatment is 6-12 months for uncomplicated cases with a focus on anterior aesthetics.
The procedure of LEADING DENTISTS
At BLEIBTREU DENTISTS, you have Dr. Gerrit Schaefer as your contact person, a dentist who specializes in treatment with invisible braces. At the beginning there will be a meeting in which your wishes and the treatment options are discussed. The desired end result can be simulated in advance.
During aligner therapy, appointments are made every 4-8 weeks to monitor progress. Apart from a temporary feeling of pressure during the first brace, the treatment is completely painless.
The invisible braces are worn for at least 22 hours a day and are usually only taken out for meals.
