Function, aesthetics and beauty are a firm part of the orthodontic treatment at MUNDWERK Die Kieferorthopäden.

Orthodontist - a contribution to a healthy living for everybody

We humans swallow roughly 2,000 times a day, if we are healthy and hopefully we will keep on doing so for many years. By the age of 85 we will have swallowed more than 62 million times!

An orthodontic treatment performed by a specialist will ensure that teeth and jaw bone will be formed and shaped in a way that eating, chewing, talking, smiling, kissing, and singing can be done free of pain lifelong.

Why is an orthodontic treatment so important?

If you suffer from a dental malposition you will notice quickly that your teeth will keep developing that way. Because, the tempo a dental malposition is progressing will in fact increase during your lifetime. In this process the enamel, which is vital for good dental health, is regressing as well. Another very important fact is strain that a malposition has on the mandibular joint. For instance, somebody who is over exercising their knees will risk a meniscus tear. Somebody who is fatiguing their spinal column will risk a slipped disc later on. And somebody who is chewing and biting the wrong way is putting a strain on their mandibular joints - everyday, around the clock, for a lifetime.

The common perception that the teeth will eventually even out and position themselves right, that the cracking and grating will eventually stop, is unfortunately false. Therefore, treatment should be started as soon as possible.

Active treatment

By this we mean orthodontic treatments that take 3 aspects into account:

  • the dental arch shape of the upper and lower jaws
  • the bite, i.e. the interaction between the upper and lower jaws
  • the position of the individual teeth

Passive treatment (retention)

The aim here is to secure the treatment result that has been achieved. Together with you, our specialists decide on the extent of the aftercare. Retention is the basis for beautiful teeth for a lifetime.

Early detection is the key

Dental and jaw bone malpositions are commonly found in children and young adults and can, if not diagnosed and treated early, lead to lifelong problems like headaches, neck, and joint pain, all the way to a slipped disc.
Therefore, it is crucial to treat a malposition as soon as it is diagnosed! The rule of thumb here is, the earlier a diagnosis has been made, the less intense the medical treatment will be. Meanwhile minimizing the danger of chronic damage to the teeth, and especially to the mandibular joints.
In many cases it is important to treat certain symptoms: like changing the swallowing patterns of children in speech therapy, or treating headaches, neck and shoulder pains through physiotherapy.

Based on that, orthodontists not only focus on straightening out teeth, but moreover we are responsible for an integral dental health - today for a better tomorrow.
An orthodontic treatment is not increasing your life expectancy, but it is increasing your life quality!

We can not only treat, but also listen.

More than straight teeth


We offer classic and innovative means of treatment: fixed appliances on the inside of the teeth or transparent plastic trays (Invisalign) are a discreet alternative. Modern self-ligating brackets convince with a high treatment comfort.
