Creating a treatment plan

The basis of any successful tooth straightening: the treatment plan

Modern orthodontics provides a multitude of solutions for permanent tooth straigtening. As an experienced partner, your orthodontist will assist in creating the right treatment concept for you. To determine the extent of the required treatment steps, your orthodontist will first draw up different reports and clarify the condition of your jaw and your jaw joints. He will also make a precise examination of the shape of your face and mouth, and check whether your chewing organs are healthy. The orthodontist additionally performs a few function tests to be able to assess how your lips, tongue and jaw joint move. After evaluating the diagnoses, the orthodontist compiles an individual treatment and cost plan together with you. This specifies the subsequent steps, the treatment methods and the required braces. In most cases a brace system is suitable to successfully and effectively correct existing tooth misalignments. In the event of the insurance company meeting the costs, the treatment plan needs to be submitted to the insurance company prior to treatment. Whatever concept you opt for: 3M Unitek provides a modern and high-efficient solution for almost any treatment route.
