Kids and teenagers (under 18)
An orthodontic treatment is usually covered by the statutory health insurance. However, the insurance usually demands a deposit of about 600€ over the course of the treatment (48 months). For a more detailed assessment of the situation, you are welcome to arrange a non-binding consultation appointment.
The costs covered by the health insurance companies unfortunately only ensure an absolute minimum of care. Modern materials and new, digital, high-quality treatment concepts are not covered by the health insurance companies. Of course, if demanded by the patient, a treatment using methods and materials that are completely covered by the insurance is possible. Nevertheless, the philosophy of our orthodontic office is to treat all patients, no matter if private or state insured, equally, based on the latest scientific findings and with the best possible materials. This way we can guarantee a constant quality with the shortest and most comfortable treatment possible. We are also able to access many treatment methods and materials that are not covered by the statutory insurance companies, so that private co-payments are necessary. Examples are digital treatment procedures (3D scans, bracket positioning, ...), retainers, turbobites, sealants, pins with suprastructures, superelastic arche wires, self-ligating brackets, professional orthodontic tooth brushing, ...
Adults (over 18)
Treatment of adults is usually not covered by the statutory health insurance companies. An exception is made in the case of serious jaw malpositions that require additional surgical adjustment of the jaw. In this case, however, the patient has to cover a part of the costs. For a more detailed assessment of the situation, feel free to book an appointment for a non-binding consultation. Furthermore, for an initial assessment you can use our online questionnaire HERE.
A lateral cross bite causes a displacement of the lower jaw. This leads to asymmetrical adjustments in the temporomandibular joint. Therefore the growth of the jaws should be guided correctly by braces.
An enlarged step between the anterior teeth increases the risk of trauma of the upper anterior teeth. Therefore the growth of the jaws should be guided correctly by braces.
An anterior cross bite is usually caused by excessive growth of the lower jaw and impaires the proper tooth contacts and thus function of the teeth. Therefore the growth should be guided correctly with braces.
