Children’s orthodontics

Orthodontics for children and adolescents


For orthodontic treatment in children to be as short and effective as possible, it’s important to intervene at the right time.

Very often, your GP, school doctor or dentist will advise you to see an orthodontist, but you can also consult one on your own if you suspect a particular risk.

Orthodontic treatment can be considered as soon as the first permanent molar has appeared, sometimes even when there are only baby teeth, especially if the lower jaw is undershot.

Younger patients consult an orthodontist mainly for :

Younger patients consult an orthodontist mainly for :

Preventive treatment (between ages 6 and 8)

It is performed in temporary dentition between the ages of 6 and 8.

These treatments are linked to developmental abnormalities or bad habits such as finger sucking.

The interception phase (between ages 6 and 11)

Mixed dentition takes place between the ages of 8 and 11. Most patients come for treatment at this time, when the so-called “milk teeth” cohabit with the permanent teeth.

Early treatment – necessary in cases of large sagittal, transverse or vertical jaw misalignments – allows you to take advantage of growth and correct dysfunctions (re-education of the orofacial musculature) and jaw misalignments.

The construction phase (between ages 11 and 17)

Permanent dentition takes place between the ages of 11 and 17.

During this period, the therapeutic approach is different, as it is adapted to growth phenomena, particularly during puberty.

The rehabilitation process (growth complete)

Permanent dentition, no growth. Patients can therefore be treated in the same way as adults.

Functional problems related to occlusion and jaw joint disorders, as well as aesthetic concerns, play an important role in motivating patients.
