Braces have developed tremendously in recent years. With us you can get traditional braces with metal or porcelain brackets, which are glued to the front of the teeth. You can get Incognito braces consisting of nickel-free brackets glued to the back of your teeth, or you can choose Invisalign braces, made of a plastic material that you can take on and off when eating and brushing your teeth.
Which treatment is best for children?
Incognito braces provide much less discomfort to a child than traditional braces. There is also less pain during the adjustment. In addition, Incognito is invisible so that the child does not have to be self-conscious about a slightly changed appearance.
Children can receive Helfo reimbursement for Incognito braces and traditional braces in specific cases. For adults, special reimbursement rules apply.
When do I need braces?
Orthodontic appliances are used when your teeth are skewed in the mouth, when new teeth do not appear properly, if you have a bite and jaw failure, or if you have a speech problem due to improper tooth placement. Orthodontics can also prevent dental injuries.
How to do the treatment
First you come for a consultation with our orthodontist. He takes X-rays and creates a treatment plan for you. Then you will get an entire treatment plan and an overview of what you can get refunded. We will arrange the application for Helfo for you.
The appliance should now be produced and glued to your teeth. When this is done, you get an overview of appointments for adjusting the appliance.
How long do I have to go with braces?
The time it takes to regulate your teeth varies depending on the extent of the need for straightening the teeth. You can count on an average of 12-24 months before your teeth are corrected.
What can I eat when having braces?
You can eat anything you fancy, but it’s a good idea to be careful with sticky foods that can get stuck in the appliance, or hard food that can cause brackets to loosen, or a string becomes bent.
It is never too late to get braces
For those who regret not having the orthodontic treatment in childhood, or being pampered by your smile, it’s not too late. A right smile you can be proud of has a lot to say for self-confidence and self-esteem.
