If your jaw or teeth are poorly aligned, you may experience discomfort or a loss of confidence. Orthodontic treatment by our professionals can correct the faulty positions and realign your teeth. At our Adent dental clinics, we offer customised orthodontic treatments for both adults and children. With care tailored to your requirements, you can rediscover an attractive smile and improve your wellbeing. Our orthodontists use the most up-to-date technologies and offer you a range of orthodontic treatments, depending on the presenting problem and desired result. Discreet treatments (e.g. using Invisalign® clear aligners) are available for adults and young people.
Orthodontic treatment is possible at more or less any age. However, most parents want their children to undergo treatment at an early stage. Depending on the type of treatment, an initial interception phase may be carried out from the age of four, or earlier if the child is able to cooperate. It is essential to intercept malocclusions during growth, since this enables results which can no longer be achieved once growth is complete.
To determine the most suitable type of orthodontic treatment for your child, we advise you to consult a specialist orthodontist. Various types of treatment exist, including Invisalign® aligners or the more traditional dental braces with brackets bonded to the surface of the teeth. Your orthodontist will tell you everything you need to know about starting treatment and the treatment process and will answer your questions. Our specialists also provide you with information about the possibility of financial contributions from external bodies (e.g. insurance plans, compulsory insurance or disability insurance).
Orthodontics for adults is booming thanks to the emergence of new technologies. Innovative orthodontic methods such as clear ceramic braces, lingual orthodontics (where brackets are fixed behind the teeth) and clear thermoformed aligners (Invisalign® system) have made orthodontic treatments much more discreet – or even invisible.
Beyond the simple aesthetic alignment of teeth, orthodontic treatment can change situations which have been troubling patients or perhaps causing discomfort for many years, including:
- Jaw reaching too far forward
- Chin pushed too far back
- Smile exposing the gums
- Too much space between the teeth or overlapping teeth
- Lips which do not fully close, even in a resting position
There is no age limit for starting orthodontic treatment; the only obstacles are the use of certain medications or the presence of gum problems. Our orthodontic specialists are available to discuss your personal situation and answer any questions you have. Do not hesitate to make an appointment for an information consultation!
