Orthodontics for children: Your child’s beautiful smile is invaluable!

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: Invest in yourself and enjoy a bright smile for years to come

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!

WHY
ORTHODONTICS

Why have orthodontic treatment?

When we think of orthodontics, aesthetic reasons are often the first that spring to mind. However, orthodontic treatment offers many more benefits besides. For example, functional problems may arise if the teeth or jaw are incorrectly positioned, leaving teeth difficult to clean. Poor teeth cleaning causes a build-up of plaque on the teeth, and this may contribute to the development of cavities and gum disease (e.g. gingival recession). The resulting pain may impair chewing, making it less effective. In turn, this has an effect on your diet and digestion. Abnormal dental positions can also cause excessive wear to the teeth, as well as pain in the jaw, head, neck and facial muscles.

BENEFITS OF
ORTHODONTICS

Orthodontic treatment offers a whole host of benefits for both adults and children, but we have listed the most common below:

  • Restores optimal occlusion (teeth alignment): there is the right amount of contact between the upper and lower teeth, which promotes good chewing and the correct position of the masticatory system.
  • Prevents tooth wear due to abnormal function: optical alignment minimises wear to the teeth, protecting your tooth enamel and preserving the shape of your teeth.
  • Ensures better oral health: an irregular positioning of your teeth or your jaw may cause pain and inflammation of the gums. Smoothly aligned teeth allow better access for cleaning.
  • Rebalances the appearance of the teeth: optimal dental alignment brings self-confidence. Rediscover a bright smile and boost your self-confidence.

ALIGNMENT
TECHNIQUE

Which technique is used to align my teeth?

A range of orthodontic techniques exist to straighten the teeth. Our orthodontists can offer you fixed (visible or invisible) or removable (visible or invisible) appliances. Traditional braces are the most popular treatment. The brackets are individually bonded to each tooth and a wire connects each of the teeth together. Orthodontic braces are also available in a ceramic, tooth-coloured version. The braces are tightened slightly at regular intervals, allowing the teeth to move gently.

Treatment without braces is also possible, thanks to Invisalign®.
This technique uses a sequence of removable clear aligners to align your teeth without wire or visible braces. You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, and clean your teeth. As you replace each clear aligner with the next in the sequence, your teeth move little by little, week after week, until they reach their final position.

In addition to ‘traditional’ braces bonded to your teeth and the Invisalign® clear aligner method to straighten your teeth, we also offer orthodontic treatment with removable appliances (such as traction via removable plates) and treatment using the Incognito® technique (lingual braces developed in the United States). The Incognito® technique entails fixing brackets to the inside of your teeth. These lingual braces make the orthodontic treatment almost invisible.

COST OF
TREATMENT

How much does orthodontic treatment cost?

The cost of orthodontic treatment can only be established after a full consultation with your orthodontist. This examination is carried out at the dental practice by the specialist orthodontist, providing them with an overview of your current oral and dental health. They may also carry out X-rays to complete the process. Together, you discuss the various treatment options that apply to your personal situation. You decide on the result you wish to achieve. The price of orthodontic treatment is therefore only determined after an examination carried out by one of our specialist orthodontists. Several factors are taken into account in the price: the problems to be corrected, the technique used and the duration of treatment, as well as the end result you wish to achieve, which also influences the cost.

These aspects should be discussed with our orthodontists. You can find a full list of our practitioners below.
