    Keep your straight teeth with a splint

    Once the traject is completed, you’ll have gorgeous straight teeth thanks to our invincible Invisalign braces.

    You obviously want to keep your teeth straight. Therefore, we will put a splint behind your teeth so it won’t be visible and your teeth remain straight.

    The splint is a thin iron wire that we place behind your upper or lower jaw’s canine teeth. This maintains the straightness of the teeth, allowing you to enjoy your beautiful teeth for the rest of your life. You will have to wear the splint for the rest of your life, but you will not notice it and it will be easy to maintain clean.

      We can put your splint back in place

      A splint may become loose from time to time. In this scenario, you should get in touch with us as soon as possible. The splint can then be replaced, preventing your teeth from moving.

      Loosening will have no influence on the position of your teeth if we do it in a timely manner.

      Of course, if you have any queries regarding whether the splint is totally accurate or how to keep the splint clean, you can always contact us.



      For the past five years, I’ve been coming to Dijkstra & de Wet. Lesha is always polite and has a way of putting me at ease. The warm and inviting atmosphere speaks to me. In addition, their abilities are up to date.


      I’ve always been terrified of going to the dentist. I walked in with a set of teeth that I felt couldn’t be saved after years of not checking. Dijkstra & De Wet were able to save my teeth and restore them to a healthy and pain-free state.
