Treatment of children and adolescents
It is recommended to check the development of the dentition at an orthodontist already at the age of 4–5 years. Certain wrong positions of your teeth or jaw can then be slowed down or guided in the right direction. In normal cases, the orthodontic treatment starts at the age of 9-10 years – in the phase of the second dentition change. But also after the dentition change a correction of the teeth position is possible.
Depending on the goal of the treatment and on teeth and jaw malposition, different appliances are used. If the change of teeth is not finished, mostly removable appliances are utilized.
