Orthodontic treatment for children and teens

Special opportunities for children and teens in growth

Children and teens who are still growing, can get both their teeth and jaw alignment corrected with different types of braces. It is crucial that the treatment is initiated at the most ideal time to achieve a satisfactory result. This ensures that the growth is affected in the most favorable direction, and results in the shortest and most effective treatment as possible.

The best orthodontic results are achieved with cooperative, motivated, and well-informed patients and parents.

Treatment in deciduous and mixed dentition

Children who still have baby teeth are only treated to provide the best possible environment for the eruption of permanent teeth. We will either influence the position of the jaws to correct a disharmony between the upper and lower jaw, provide space for permanent teeth, or correct major single tooth anomalies.

Our goal is not to improve the cosmetic appearance of the teeth during the mixed dentition stage. Front teeth may be naturally spaced or rotated during this stage of life. This is a normal condition and often improves without treatment.

Treatment in the mixed dentition phases takes about twelve to eighteen months.

Treatment in permanent dentition

When all the permanent teeth have erupted, their position can be corrected, mostly with fixed appliance. The average treatment period is about two years.

Has your child been rejected from the public system?

The Danish Health and Medical Authority has described the malocclusions which are covered by the public system. (Read more here). However, it is important to note that these criteria have been restricted.

This means that not only youngsters with aesthetic malocclusion are rejected, but also youngsters who may have functional problems and/or tooth wear. It is important not to miss the correct biologic timing for initiating the orthodontic treatment.

Therefore, we recommend that you book a consultation if your child has been rejected or been on a waiting list for a long period of time.

What to look for when choosing your orthodontist

There are different ways to practice orthodontics, and orthodontists may pursue a variety of different goals. Though it is possible to achieve an attractive smile through tooth alignment alone, a patient’s new smile will not last if their bite is not corrected at the same time. If not corrected, problems such as crooked teeth, gum issues, jaw joint degeneration and tooth wear can (re)occur.

We value the trust our patients give us and, therefore, use the time necessary to complete a thorough preliminary examination and diagnostics so we can give you the best guidance when deciding whether you want to start your treatment with us. We focus on carrying out all procedures optimally, and our primary goal is to give our patients a healthy bite and an attractive smile. This is done by ensuring that your teeth are well positioned in healthy bone and in correct relation to your jaw joints by the end of your treatment.
