If it has turned out in a first consultation that orthodontic treatment is suitable for you or your child, the next step is the creation of the Diagnostic documents. They are the prerequisite for planning the individual treatment and provide information about the extent and duration of the treatment.

The following steps are usually required to prepare the documents:


We create one with our digital, low-radiation X-ray machine Profiling of jaw and teeth (FRS) and one panoramic image (OPG).

Among other things, we can see from these X-ray images whether teeth are still hidden or displaced in the jaw or are completely missing and how teeth and jaws are likely to develop further.

When treating children, it is often necessary to know or predict the end of physical growth. For this we can, among other things, a Make carpal shoot. Building on this results in different treatment options.

Photo analysis

To check how the malalignment affects the appearance of the face, we will do a profile and photo analysis. To we photograph the face in profile and from the front.

After completion of the treatment, we perform this analysis again. So you and we can do that Compare changes. Especially with serious jaw misalignments can often be enormous Achieve improvements.

model analysis

For the model analysis we take Imprints on your upper and lower jaw. Then bite on a wax plate. So we can grasp the bite of the teeth of your upper and lower jaw.

We create from it Plaster model of your dentition or your child’s. We can do that Accurately analyze malposition and discuss the therapy concept together with the current model.

Special highlight of our practice: We have a state-of-the-art intraoral scanner. We can therefore take the impression purely digitally – that is, contactless and comfortable!

functional analysis

Your teeth are in a complex relationship with the jaw joints and masticatory muscles. If this system is disturbed, it can cause problems. The consequences can be: tooth and jaw pain, head, ear, neck and also back pain as well as cracking in the TMJ up to a diffuse facial pain or problems with the cervical spine. These complaints are also called Craniomandibular dysfunction (CMD) designated.

With the functional analysis We diagnose whether your TMJ tracks are harmonious and what the causes of your discomfort can be.

In addition to certain tactile and grip techniques, your TMJ movements will be combined with one face bow measured. Afterwards we can arrange a therapy individually adapted to you, such as: B. a splint therapy, define and initiate.

In addition, we rely on a modern concept and work interdisciplinary With doctors and colleagues of other disciplines together – especially when treating a CMD, this is often recommended.
