Mainly children and adolescents aged between four and sixteen are treated with removable appliances. In accordance with their physical development, it is important to control the growth of jaws and teeth.
Everything from a single source – our own practice lab
We have been running our own dental laboratory, certified according to ISO standard, since 1 May 1989. There’s a close cooperation between your orthodontist Dr. Michael de Cassan and the dental technician working hand in hand. Due to the use of state-of-the-art technology, high craftsmanship and high-quality materials, our orthodontic appliances are individually manufactured for each patient.
Short distances and direct communication between orthodontist and technician allow for optimal and rapid treatment.
There is a large number of different removable braces, which are individually manufactured and adapted according to the correspondent tooth or jaw malposition. They usually consist of an acrylic base – color as preferred – with passive stainless steel elements or functional parts like screws or springs which can be activated.
By the way: Optimal treatment success is achieved when the apparatuses are worn regularly at night and a few hours during the day, i.e. about 14 hours a day.
