Children around the age of 9
Taking your 9-year-old to the dentist is normal. Bringing your child to our clinic, however, can also prove beneficial, on the condition that your child still has the last temporary molars milk teeth. A simple panoramic X-ray allows us to identify all precursory problems and avoid infinitely more complex interventions.
Guiding young teeth towards a natural development and intercepting possible malocclusion are the cornerstones of our philosophy.
While adults are often referred to us by their dentist, nothing prevents them from contacting us directly. Depending on the diagnosed problems, we will contact the patients’ regular dentist, or, if necessary, any other specialist (periodontist, prosthodontist, maxillofacial surgeon, …)
My first consultation
Your child’s first consultation often follows a recommendation from your dentist, the hygienist or the school service. When in doubt, do not hesitate to contact us. This first visit is important to establish your child’s dental age and to identify potential problems. At that point we can decide whether or not treatment is necessary, and how urgent it is.
We always take the time to explain the identified orthodontic problems, and the proposed solution, to both you and your child. We also address all financial issues.
We usually work in 3 phases: the correction of the malocclusion, the treatment of aesthetic needs, and ultimately the potential stabilizing issues to ensure a lasting result.
The cost of medical contribution in Switzerland is based on a number of points. Typical prices range from CHF 2.8 and CHF 5.2 per point. Reimbursement by your insurance company is set around 3.1 per point, which is exactly within our price range.
