An optimum oral hygiene and dental care is generally necessary prior, during and after the treatment. An orthodontic treatment creates the conditions for a permanently fully functional set of teeth.

The duration of the therapy depends on the medical measures, the biological response of the tissue, the age, the wearing time and the motivation and is always different for each individual patient.
