DURATION
OF ORTHODONTIC
TREATMENT

This can vary

considerably and will

depend on the patient’s

individual problem.

On average, we can say that

treatments last between

15 and 24 months,

although it can be less or in some

cases much longer depending

on the complexity of the case.

Dr Koch will be able

to give you a precise

estimate of the length

of the treatment  after

he has examined you.

ORTHODONTIC
SPECIALISTS?

Orthodontics

specialists are

dental surgeons with

a doctorate in dental surgery

who have undergone additional

advanced training in a very

specific field:

dentofacial orthopedics.

This specialist training lasts

4 years and includes theoretical

training at a university

and clinical training

in a hospital setting.

THE ORTHODONTIC
ASSESSMENT

Your first appointment

will be a chance to get

to know you and to decide

whether treatment is indicated.

After that we will carry out

a comprehensive orthodontic

assessment to make

a precise diagnosis and draw up

a personalised

treatment plan.

ADVANTAGES OF
ORTHODONTICS

The aim of

orthodontic treatment is:

to move teeth to realign them,

to adapt the growth of the jaw,

to ensure good overall oral

and dental health and functioning,

to facilitate brushing

and to improve oral

and facial aging.

DENTAL TRAUMA

In the event of

a traumatic dental injury,

you should immediately contact

our team, your dentist or the

closest hospital dentistry or ENT

department (Basel or Mulhouse).

If a permanent tooth is

avulsed (knocked out),

recover the crown of the tooth,

do not clean it and place it

in some saline solution,

milk or even your own saliva.

Sometimes it is possible

to reimplant it.
