DrSmile or PlusDental: Since 2022 the question is superfluous

The most important thing right from the start: Since 2022, the question “DrSmile or PlusDental?” actually no longer arises.

This is because PlusDental has been part of the Straumann Group since mid-2022. This is an internationally active company from Switzerland that specializes in implant-supported and restorative dentures, oral tissue regeneration and orthodontics.

Straumann Holding AG has more than 20 subsidiaries in Europe, Asia and the Americas. PlusDental was purchased for 131 million euros.

Around two years earlier, the Straumann Group had also acquired a significant majority stake in DrSmile.

The company also committed to significant further investment to fund growth through to full acquisition in the future.

Unlike PlusDental, however, DrSmile will remain an independent company, managed by its founders and continuing to operate from its headquarters in Berlin.

Dr. Hans-Jürgen Köning, Chairman at Berufsverband der Deutschen Kieferorthopäden e.V., has the following to say about the changes:

“Straumann’s expertise in medical device manufacturing is unquestioned. However, the company must now also guarantee that these medical devices are used properly in the treatment of PlusDental and DrSmile customers.”

DrSmile or PlusDental: Where can I book a treatment now?

You no longer have to ask yourself the question “DrSmile or PlusDental?” when looking for the right aligner provider – because the two companies now belong together.

For some time it was still possible to request the tooth correction via the PlusDental website. Here, however, interested parties have already been made aware that PlusDental is now only marketed under the name DrSmile.

In the meantime, however, the PlusDental site no longer exists. Customers are simply told:PlusDental is now DrSmile – you will be redirected to DrSmile customer service, who will be happy to assist you with any questions you may have.

After a few seconds, the user is automatically redirected to the DrSmile homepage, where consumers can obtain information and book an initial appointment.

And what about customers who are already undergoing treatment at PlusDental?

DrSmile is now also responsible for all PlusDental customers. Patients can get answers to the most important questions about the switch at the DrSmile Help Center and via the DrSmile contact form on the homepage.

However, we would like to give you some information in this article:

  • A free refinement is still possible for PlusDental customers. As with the original treatment, a 3D scan must be made again here. The appointment can be made via the DrSmile homepage.
  • Anyone who needs an appointment for approximal enamel reduction (ASR) or attachment removal can request one via the contact form with the subjectPlusDental IPR appointment”.
  • The PlusDental was discontinued as of 12/21/2022. Since the data may not be transferred to the DrSmile app for data protection reasons, the process for online check-ups is now done by mail.
  • All PlusDental wire retainer orders have been cancelled and refunded. However, DrSmile will provide a two-year warranty for all retainers already in place.
  • The installment payment for the dental correction continues as usual.

Which is better: Invisalign or DrSmile?

DrSmile invisible braces are significantly cheaper and therefore offer better value for money. However, they can only be used for uncomplicated anterior corrections. Invisalign aligners, on the other hand, can correct up to 90 percent of all orthodontic cases. Accordingly, they are suitable for serious malocclusions of teeth and jaw.

For whom is DrSmile not suitable?

DrSmile can treat mild to moderate dental malocclusions. In the case of complex malocclusions and malocclusions, however, the aligners reach their limits.

How long do retainers from DrSmile have to be worn?

In many cases retainers should be worn for life, as teeth can shift into old age. For the first eight weeks after treatment, the aligners must be worn 22 hours per day for 8 weeks. After that, it is often sufficient if they are only used at night. However, the recommended duration of wearing a retainer is at least the duration of the previously performed dental treatment.
