There is no age limit for a beautiful laugh


The misconception still exists that orthodontic treatment is only possible during the growth period, which means for children and young people. However, basically there is no age limit for treatment.

Aligning the tooth position in adults is done using appliances (braces) which push the teeth into the required position with a gentle pressure and which use cell renewal mechanism in doing so. The tooth “grows into the new position”, so to speak.

As the cell renewal process continues into old age there are consequently no time restrictions which would exclude treatment. On the contrary, many chewing and postural complaints – the co-called craniomandibular dysfunctions – can be caused by incorrect tooth position. In many such cases orthodontics can achieve surprisingly successful treatment results.
