New orthodontics

The excellent and individual care of our patients since the foundation of our practice in 1994 is the maxim of our actions. That’s why we specialize:
The core areas of our activity are
the holistic examination, the functional finding (link on page „functional findings“), d. H. includes all muscle functions of the mouth, head, neck, shoulder and back that are relevant to the function of the jaw,
a precise diagnosis without X-rays (link on page „Diagnostics without X-ray“) (noXrayCeph®) for the growth and position determination of the jaws and teeth,
a gentle therapy (link on page „Therapy“) with the most modern orthodontic technique (Torqueontrol®, Incognito®, invisalign®) as well as
a special oral hygiene with SOLO prophylaxis (link on page „SOLO prophylaxis“).
Certified specialists work in our practice (link on page „Specialists“). The personal relationship of trust with our patients is an integral part of our innovative, holistic orthodontics.
Our patients include adults from all over Germany, who value individual and gentle orthodontic treatment, and young patients from the age of four.

With the Herrliberg / Meilen we have a practice network. In addition, our patients benefit from our long-established network (link on page „Network“) of selected and friendly practices and universities. Our network is particularly useful for complex questions or scientific work.
In addition, we give courses (link to the page „courses“ or the corresponding website) in the field of orthodontics, organize congresses (link to the page „congresses“ or on the corresponding website) and give lectures (link on to be created page „lectures“ or on the corresponding website) at home and abroad.

Orthodontics Zug – Measurement

Orthodontics Diagnostics without X-ray


Our precise survey method without stressing X-rays takes only a few minutes in our practice with the high-resolution 3D scanner from
Orthotec, Nassauerstr. 42, 65187 Wiesbaden.

Surveying with NoXrayCeph® in orthodontic practice Dr. med. dent. Irina Brandt and Dr. med. dent. Thorsten Brandt:
The measurement with NoXraxCeph® takes about two to four minutes.
The carbon cap is placed on the head of the patient or patient with foam rubber pads. The survey program specifies the points to be measured individually. After each individual measurement, the program independently jumps to the next point to be measured. The carbon cap should not slip during the measurement, otherwise the measurement is repeated, which usually takes two minutes. After the survey data has been stored, is the evaluation immediately using the analysis methods of Professor Peter Schopf at the University of Frankfurt (Frankfurt analysis), the sellaunabhängigen? American Ricketts analysis and the WITS, the jaw orientation of Prof. Jacobson, Whitewatersrand University, South Africa, displayed.

Orthodontics Diagnostics without X-ray

The quality of orthodontic therapy depends crucially on the precise analysis of jaw growth and the position of the jaw within the face. Only in this way is an exact planning and efficient execution of the individual therapy possible. And the success of the treatment is guaranteed.
For the first time, our noXrayCeph® orthodontic magnetic survey method is using no X-rays. The lateral cephalograms of the skull previously used in orthodontics place a strain on the blood-forming cells of the cranial fossa bones. This can lead to an increased leukemia risk in young people. Our procedure, which measures the face with the help of a magnetic field, spares these blood-forming cells. Thus, in our practice, we largely comply with the new, worldwide X-ray ordinance, which requires avoiding unnecessary X-rays.
This is ultimately a pleasant side effect. noXrayCeph® is more accurate than cephalometric X-ray side shots of the skull and it offers additional options:
noXrayCeph® is a three-dimensional process and measures on a scale of 1: 1. This avoids projection and overlay errors that can occur in the evaluation of conventional two-dimensional cephalograms.
Existing asymmetries between the right and left jawbone can be recognized by the three-dimensional method.
The survey takes only four minutes, and the cephalometric analysis, d. H. the positional relationship of the jaw to the skull is immediately afterwards. In contrast to conventional X-ray images, no development time has to be awaited.
The measurement technique is not only precise and fast, but also pleasant by allowing jaw measurement, even when the patient is moving.
By dispensing with X-rays close-meshed follow-up checks are possible.

Incognito Lingual technic

Incognito Lingual Treatment System Orthodontist Zug Switzerland Orthodontics Zug modern dentistry health care

Incognito Lingual technic

Fixed braces are not only suitable for children and adolescents. Treatments with fixed braces are still possible and useful for patients over 60 years. However, adults often have higher demands on the aesthetics of a dental correction.
Our Incognito® lingual treatment system fixes any type of dental malocclusion without seeing the fixed braces. Because it is attached to the inside of the teeth („lingual“ = tongue side). Using state-of-the-art computer-aided technology, the individual components of the braces, the Incognito® brackets, are made individually for you or your child.
In addition to the aesthetic aspect of invisible dental treatment, the lingual technique also has medical benefits:
High-precision bows and extremely flat high-gold brackets provide unrestricted speech comfort, are allergy-free and can be used at almost any age.
The inside of the tooth is more robust and less prone to decalcification and tooth decay. Therefore, when using the lingual technique permanent damage to the teeth are less likely compared to external solid clips.
If the teeth on the outside have chalky spots and decalcification before treatment, lingual technique is the method of choice.
It is a high treatment flexibility through continuous, short-term improvements in the equipment possible. The treatment with the lingual technique therefore takes no longer than with conventional fixed braces and the results are just as good.

For example, with Incognito® we can
correct light crowding in the lower jaw front,
make a gap closure,
obtain the gap opening for implants or bridges,
raise tilted teeth for bridge restorations,
an intrusion, d. H. Tooth shortening of elongated teeth for aesthetic and functional restoration of the dental arches,
adjust the smile lines and improve the tooth position to the lip red,
support a periodontal treatment.

We have been using the lingual technique since our practice was founded in 1994.
