The orthodontist starts the treatment with an accurate diagnosis based on tooth models, facial images and X-rays.
After a thorough analysis, the orthodontist presents the treatment plan and, together with the patient, chooses the type of braces. Throughout the entire treatment, the patient is under the care of the attending doctor and a hygienist. Using advanced 3D imaging technology, the Orthero method creates a complete plan for straightening the teeth, taking into account the shift from the initial to the desired position based on the Orthero doctor’s recommendations.
A set of overlays specially adapted to a particular patient’s teeth is prepared, which gradually moves the teeth. Each set is worn for about two weeks and replaced with new ones until the desired tooth setting is achieved. The orthodontist prepares the Orthero treatment plan based on the individual patient’s needs.
Orthero overlays are almost transparent. No one will even notice the transparent, smooth Orthero braces on your teeth so that you can wear them in any situation, every day.
The overlays are removable, so there are no restrictions on the products you can eat and drink. They can also be removed for brushing and flossing to maintain good oral hygiene.
Unlike classic fixed metal braces for teeth, the transparent overlays have no brackets or wires. This means less time spent on visits to the dentist who carries out Orthero treatment.
Orthero also provides an opportunity to learn about the plan and the final effect of the treatment even before it begins.
Fixed orthodontic braces
Fixed metal braces are used mainly to treat malocclusion in adults and children, who already have all their permanent teeth. It is used to correct bite defects, thanks to which it influences the aesthetics of a smile. Wearing permanent orthodontic braces can also reduce pronunciation defects. It also reduces the risk of dental caries and gum disease. Fixed orthodontic braces serve both beauty and health. Furthermore, permanent braces are no longer a reason to be ashamed, but a fashionable element to boast about. Fixed braces can be selected ideally to suit your needs, thanks to the variety of available models. There are classic metal braces with colorful ligatures as well as very discreet aesthetic braces. This allows everyone to find something for themselves!
Discreet aesthetic devices
Porcelain orthodontic braces have brackets in a milky color similar to their teeth, which makes them almost invisible. It guarantees high aesthetics and discretion if you don’t want your braces to be visible. Porcelain orthodontic braces are also resistant to damage. Permanent self-monitoring orthodontic braces are available in metal and cosmetic versions. It is a very convenient type of permanent braces because it requires fewer visits to the orthodontist compared to the standard model, equipped with flaps or clasps, thanks to which friction is less and therefore painful. These fixed braces also makes it easier to take care of oral hygiene.
Cosmetic braces (sapphire)
Cosmetic braces, also called sapphire, are popular orthodontic solutions created for the most demanding patients. It is distinguished from classic braces because instead of classic metal locks, they have locks made of ceramic crystal, which is almost entirely transparent. Thanks to that, the device is practically invisible at first glance. In terms of construction, they are very similar to orthodontic solutions known for many years. Sapphire brackets are glued to teeth with a special glue and then connected with a metal arch.
A definite advantage of such a solution is that it is much more difficult to notice the cosmetic apparatus, which has a positive impact on the patient’s comfort and confidence. The main disadvantage of cosmetic devices should also be borne in mind – due to the specific nature of the material used, the risk of possible cracks and damage increases. Together with the necessity of possible repairs, the patient’s treatment may be longer than in the case of the classic solution.
Why is it worth wearing braces?
Bite defects are a common problem in children and adults alike. Consultations are carried out at all ages for prophylactic, aesthetic, and health reasons. Incorrectly seated teeth lead to pathological changes in dentition and occlusion, which can be eliminated using appropriate tooth braces. In adults, changes in the jaw and teeth area may appear, radiating towards the temples, causing headaches. Other ailments include breathing difficulties, speech, and chewing disorders. Crooked teeth make hygiene difficult as the deposit gets into places that are difficult to reach with a toothbrush or floss.
Healthy, straight, and white teeth are one of the most important aesthetic qualities of a face. Gdańsk and its inhabitants are aware that a radiant smile affects self-esteem, adds self-confidence, and ensures psychological comfort in social and professional relations.

Orthero system – transparent orthodontic braces
Thanks to advanced 3D technology, the modern Orthero method, and specialized medical staff, orthodontics has gained new quality. Patients, who associated braces for teeth with a sense of shame and a striking metal structure on their dentition, saw a chance to improve bite defects. Based on the pictures, Orthero arranges a comprehensive outline of the straightening therapy, taking into account their displacement from their current position to the correct one. What is interesting, the effects of the treatment can be known even before it starts!
The treatment consists of an innovative method based on transparent overlays, the role of which is to gradually straighten teeth, without the need to use fixed or removable orthodontic braces. The overlays are almost invisible, aesthetic, and easy to use. Their application is painless and comfortable to wear. They do not cause discomfort during a conversation. Unlike classical braces for teeth, this method does not use any wires or brackets. An individual set of so-called aligners (overlays) is prepared for each patient, which gradually moves the teeth. Every 2 weeks, the overlays are replaced with new ones until the desired effect is achieved. They can be removed at any time, which facilitates oral hygiene and food consumption.
