Who are we ? ?
The laboratory has been created in 2000 and has developped an inovating concept : orthodontics.
My skill has been periodically updated thanks to training sessions linked to technological improvements.
Thus, all orthodontic appliances follow the latest technics and answer the European Law 9342.
Orthodontics is a specialty of dentistry that is concerned with the study and treatment of malocclusions (improper bites), which may be a result of tooth irregularity, disproportionate jaw relationships, or both.
The word comes from the Greek words ortho meaning straight and odons meaning tooth.
Orthodontic treatment can focus on dental displacement only (causing teeth decay or inflammation), or can deal with the control and modification of facial growth. In the latter case it is better defined as "dentofacial orthopedics".
Orthodontic treatment can be carried out for purely aesthetic reasons—improving the general appearance of patients' teeth and face for cosmetic reasons—but treatment is often prescribed for practical reasons, providing the patient with a functionally improved bite (occlusion).
Our speciality :
What is orthodontics ?
Orthodontics is a specialised branch of dentistry concerned with the development and management of irregularities and abnormalities of the teeth, jaws and face.
Its aim is to produce a healthy, functional bite, creating greater resistance to disease and improving personal appearance.
This contributes to mental and physical well-being.
Why using orthodontics ?
For children :
Role of prevention : it’s very important to detect as soon as possible some abnormalities which can cause irregularities.
Such irregularities may prevent the orofacial sphere from growing in a regular way. That’s why before starting a treatment, the dentist can ask for the extraction of some teeth ( molars, wisdom teeth).
It’s possible to consult an orthodontics dentist as soon as the first definitive teeth appear. It provides a greater efficiency and thus the treatment won’t be too long.
excessive suction ( thumb, finger or any object...). This habit brings about a deformation of the palate and pushes teeth forward.
misplacement of the tongue during the swallowing phase causing a hole.
abnormality in the jaws development
Treatment in the permanent dentition: once the permanent teeth have evolved on the dental arch, the treatment will enable the teeh alignment and a perfect crano-facial growth if the patient comes regularly.
How much does a treatment cost ?
Ask your health insurance to know if they can pay for some part of the treatment.
How long does a treatment last ?
For a child, the treatment depends on the problems to solve but it usually lasts from 2 to 3 years plus from 1 to 2 years of treatment maintenance.
