Orthodontics – for young and old – dental realignment can be performed at any age!
Orthodontics deals with the prevention, detection and treatment of malocclusions, as well as malfunctions of the jaw and teeth. A biological setting of the teeth is possible in everyone from school children to retirees. This realignment of teeth will improve the bite and correct aesthetics. The objective is to protect against problems of the temporomandibular joint
speaking disorders or difficulties of dental hygiene and gum disease. Tom Cruise corrected his teeth with a “clip” (several years ago) at the peak of his career and caused quite a stir.
Invisible solutions: Aesthetic Orthodontics – Invisible braces
Transparent splints or ceramic brackets
Transparent and removable splints or tooth-colored white anchorages or attachment on the inside of the teeth, elegantly conceal that a treatment is taking place.
Faster, simpler treatment
Modern techniques for example with mini-implants can achieve faster results through targeted approaches with smaller, usually not visible, equipment or elastics.
When the joints block – Orthodontics and Osteopathy
We think outside the box because an osteopathic accompanying treatment can be an ideal complement to traditional orthodontics. In particular, for patients with functional disorders and joint problems, this can be a big help. The teeth and temporomandibular joint have connection with the articulations of the whole body. These influence each other and can for example have an affect other joints. The joints are connected by muscles, tendons and fasciae. Dental realignments often find that collaboration with an osteopath or physiotherapist is useful to assist with the orthodontic treatment. Each individual is considered in their entirety, in order to find a balance from head to toe. Certain treatment results can be achieved faster and more stable than others.
Statutory insurances cover the treatment for necessary orthodontic treatments to certain classifications of severity between the ages of 10 and 18. Extras such as tooth-coloration or transparent treatment techniques are not covered by statutory funds.
