The orthodontic treatment of children depends on whether the child is still growing. We use both fixed and removable appliances to optimize treatment in different growth phases.
The duration of the treatment is dependent on many factors. The treatment is planned according to the development of their teeth, the actual bone maturity and the severity of the malocclusion or “bad bite”.
With proper diagnosis and timing, it sometimes is possible to combine an orthodontic treatment with moving a tooth surgically from one position to another in the dental arches. This is known as an auto-transplantation.
