An effective treatment for optimal alignment of your teeth!
The purpose of orthodontics is to correct abnormal positions of teeth or jaws in order to restore functional and aesthetic harmony. 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.
Why opt for orthodontics?
- Badly positioned teeth and jaws can cause functional problems and are difficult to clean. This can contribute to the development of decay and gum disease and make chewing less effective.
- These malpositions can also cause excessive wear of the teeth, pain in the jaw, head, neck and facial muscles.
- Finally, the aesthetic aspect is also taken into account in orthodontic care.
Benefits of orthodontics:
- Restores optimal alignment of the teeth (occlusion)
- Prevents tooth wear when the function is abnormal
- Provides better oral health
- Restores a harmonious appearance
What is the technique to align my teeth?
There are fixed (visible and invisible) or removibles (visible and invisible) devices. The traditional “bands” are the most popular treatment. They are cemented individually on each tooth and a wire connects each of the teeth to each other. They are also available in ceramic—tooth colour. Slight tightening is carried out and allows for smooth movement of the teeth. This band system can also be applied on the inner sides, next to the tongue. The treatment is then invisible and adapts perfectly for adults who want discrete treatment.
Treatment without rings is also possible! Thanks to Invisalign®.
This technique uses a series of removable transparent trays to straighten your teeth without wire or metal bands. You wear each set of trays for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink and clean your teeth. As you replace each tray with the next one in the series, your teeth move slowly, week after week, until they reach the final position. Voir un exemple

How much does orthodontic treatment cost?
The price can be set only after an examination by one of our orthodontic experts. Several factors must be taken into account: the technique used, the duration or the malpositions present.
