Is the treatment complicated?
No! Treatment with orthocaps® aligners is easy to carry out and can be easily integrated into your everyday life. Whether in your professional or private life, either going out or doing sports – orthocaps® goes where you go and adapts to your individual lifestyle, without attracting attention or bothering you.
Most malpositions can be treated with orthocaps®. However, only a dentist/orthodontist can tell you whether the TwinAligner® System is the right solution for you.
Before you start your treatment with orthocaps® aligners, either impressions or oral scans are taken. These will be used to determine a precise, computer-assisted 3D treatment plan. And rest assured, the treatment is painless!
You will receive your first customised aligners a couple of weeks after diagnosis. You’ll be able to see for yourself how invisible and comfortable the orthocaps® aligners are. Your practitioner will explain how to use and clean your aligners. It’s as easy as ABC!
For each treatment phase, you’ll receive a set of aligners (DAYcaps and NIGHTcaps), to be worn for two or three weeks each. At the end of each phase, new impressions will be taken to custom fit the next aligners. This guarantees that treatment is 100% on schedule.
Use and care instructions
Using and taking care of your aligners is simple. In addition to your doctor’s instructions, you will receive a small brochure that answers all questions. Please wear your orthocaps® aligners day and night for successful results!
Congratulations! Now you can be proud of your beautiful smile. To ensure long-lasting results, dental retention will be prescribed by your practitioner.

Treatment with orthocaps Aligners
Tooth malpositions have already been successfully corrected in many patients by combining braces and orthocaps®. Get advice from an orthocaps® practitioner!
orthocaps® aligners have been used successfully to treat a large number of different types of tooth misalignments: deep bite, open bite, overbite, class-2 malocclusion, crowding, etc. orthocaps® aligners can be used to treat malpositioned teeth as well as irregular upper and/or lower jaw positions.
Some patients describe a mild sensation of pressure during the adjustment of orthocaps® aligners. This is completely normal, since the teeth have to get used to their new position initially. In most cases, these symptoms, which mainly occur at the beginning of each treatment phase, disappear completely after a few days.
Bridges are used to connect one or several teeth together. This makes the movement of the teeth more difficult during the correction process, as not only one individual tooth, but rather a series of connected teeth must be moved. Consult an orthocaps® practitioner near you.
No. Since orthocaps® aligners can be removed every time you eat, and even for small snacks, there are no foods that you cannot eat.
The differences between orthocaps® and traditional metal braces are enormous and varied. From an aesthetic point of view, visible metal wires and metal brackets must be mentioned first and foremost. While transparent orthocaps® aligners regulate malpositioned teeth practically invisibly, metal brackets and wires are always visible. Wearing orthocaps® is particularly comfortable and almost painless due to the effects of gentle force. The adjustment of metal braces on the other hand is sometimes painful, and wearing metal braces daily can be uncomfortable. In addition, pronunciation is sometimes significantly impaired with metal braces, since the lips and tongue are always bumping up against the brackets. orthocaps® aligners allow for very natural and clear pronunciation thanks to their well thought-out form.
orthocaps® were developed in Germany and are now used throughout the world. Thanks to first-class infrastructure, highly trained specialists and a vision that was born in Germany, orthocaps® are a product that is truly “made in Germany”.
Treatment with orthocaps® can only be performed by an orthocaps® practitioner.
