Stabilization / Retainer for children and adolescents
The retention phase forms the final phase of the orthodontic treatment of your child and serves to stabilize the treatment results. For this purpose, the teeth of your child are fixed in position by means of a special orthodontic appliance, the retention device, for an individually determined period until the treatment result is permanently ensured. The retention devices do not interfere with your child’s speech or eating, and in spite of their important task, they help your child to experience this decisive phase of his orthodontic treatment.
After we have developed the individual treatment concept of your child, we create the health and cost plan for your health insurance. As a rule, this carries most orthodontic treatment costs up to the age of eighteen, so that there is a demonstrable defect.
In order to provide your child with a comprehensive and individual treatment, our treatment plan for your child, in consultation with you, may also include procedures which are not supported by your health insurance and which may result in additional payments. We will of course discuss this with you in advance and will be glad to answer any questions you may have regarding the costs absorption and the financing during a personal discussion in our practice Brand Orthodontics in Mainz.
