Your teeth are an important part of your appearance. Many people consider getting dental braces because they are embarrassed about their teeth due to an overbite, underbite, cross bite, open bite, gap teeth or crowded teeth. Most people want a good-looking, beautiful smile.

Straight teeth not only look good, they are generally healthier and function more effectively than irregular teeth. Biting, chewing, talking and laughing is easier with healthy teeth. If problems develop, you are confronted with them every day – which is more than just annoying.

So it’s not surprising that people choose to solve such uncomfortable situations by using dental braces. Straight teeth result in better health.

Why should I opt for dental braces?

  • Crooked or displaced teeth can cause serious damage to your gums, may cause misalignment of the jaw or deformation of the face.

  • Crooked or displaced teeth are harder to keep clean which may result in tooth decay or gum disease. Postponing treatment can even result in the loss of a tooth.

  • Protruding teeth are more likely to be damaged during a fall.

  • Irregular teeth and incorrect jaw alignment can cause other symptoms such as headache, neck-ache or jaw-pain.

  • Incorrect jaw alignment can cause teeth grinding which may result in irregular wear of teeth.

  • Irregular teeth and incorrect jaw alignment can cause speech problems.

Having your teeth straightened is clearly beneficial to your overall health. By doing so you can avoid more serious problems (and higher dental costs) later in life.

Of course, besides the overall health benefits, doesn’t it feel great to be able to break into a smile confidently? Enjoying life and feeling good about yourself makes you healthier all round!

What are Invisalign braces?

Invisalign braces are perfect for everyone who needs braces, and wants them to be most well hidden.

The advantages of Invisalign braces are:

  • custom-made

  • removable at any time

  • practically invisible

What can I expect from dental braces treatment at Arnout & Hobbelink Dentists?

At Arnout & Hobbelink Dentists we work with Invisalign braces.

  • APPOINTMENT #1 – Intake and tooth analysis.

    The dentist will analyse your teeth, listen carefully to your preferences and take time to explain all the options to you. The dentist will take x-rays and digital photographs of your teeth. Moulds of your teeth will be taken for the tooth-models. Using these, the repositioning of your teeth can be calculated and the dentist can draw up a detailed plan of treatment.

  • APPOINTMENT #2 – Discuss 3D treatment plan.

    Together with the dentist you will determine in detail which result you wish to achieve, how many aligners will be needed to achieve it and how much it will cost. Once you are in agreement, the Invisalign braces will be custom-made and an appointment will be scheduled to have the first Invisalign braces fitted.

  • APPOINTMENT #3 – Fitting the first Invisalign.

  • FURTHER APPOINTMENTS – Regular checkups and placement of follow-up aligners.

    The custom-made aligners are replaced every 2-4 weeks. Once treatment is completed, the dentist will place a retainer to keep your teeth in the correct position.

Alternative dental braces

  • Traditional ‘tram track’ braces (affixed to the teeth)

  • Activator braces (removable)

  • Headgear-braces (external braces)

  • Retainer (maintains position of teeth after orthodontic treatment)

For dental braces we work closely with Orthodontic Practice Amstelveen, which is just a 7-minute car or bike ride from Arnout & Hobbelink Dentists. Naturally, you are free to choose whichever orthodontic practice you prefer.
