Harmony and balance for the body as a whole
Holistic orthodontics not only concerns itself with the teeth, their position and the position of the teeth in relation to each other, but looks upon the body as being a whole. Screening by an orthodontist is of great importance when it comes to achieving this harmonious whole.
This initial examination should be carried out when the child starts school as this is the only possibility of ensuring that the ideal, individually different moment in time for the commencement of the treatment is not missed. At this young age, not only can gentle growth-promoting and growth steering measures especially be brought into an ideal position in relation to each other, but also in harmony with the rest of the body. The large potential for growth that exists at this time often makes it unnecessary to extract teeth during orthodontic treatment.
Holistic orthodontics: Accompanying treatments
In some cases, the orthodontic treatment needs to be accompanied by holistic medical treatment. We are supported in this by speech therapists, ear, nose and throat therapists, manual therapists, orthopaedist and osteopaths.
