The purpose of orthodontics is to Orthodontics can be the solution for anyone — adults and children — whose teeth appearance or function are unpleasant. Orthodontic treatment can usually be successfully undertaken at any age. More and more adults are choosing orthodontics when they want sustainable treatment to realign their teeth. At Adent, we offer solutions adapted to each particular case.
“Although orthodontic treatment can be undertaken at more or less any age, most parents want their children to undergo treatment as early as possible.
Depending on the type of treatment, a first phase of interception can be performed as early as 4 years old or earlier if collaboration permits. The interception of malocclusions during growth is essential because it allows to obtain results that cannot be reached once the growth is completed. An information consultation with our orthodontists is necessary to define the type of treatment most appropriate for your child.
During this consultation, our specialists also inform you about the possibility of financial participation by external bodies (e.g. social insurance, compulsory insurance or disability insurance).”
Orthodontics for adults is developing significantly through the evolution of technology. This makes orthodontic treatments much more discreet than before, or even invisible. Transparent ceramic bands, lingual orthodontics (fasteners attached behind the teeth), transparent thermoformed trays (Invisalign® system) are among the innovations.
Orthodontics goes beyond the aesthetic alignment of teeth. It makes it possible to modify situations which in some cases have been a problem for many years, such as:
- A jaw which projects too far forward
- A chin placed too far back
- A smile exposing the gums
- Too much space between teeth or overlapping teeth
- Lips that do not close completely, even at rest
There is no age limit for starting treatment; only the intake of certain drugs and the presence of gum problems can delay treatment. Our orthodontic experts are at your disposal to discuss your personal situation and answer your questions.
