Dental braces for children and adults - Oslo city center

We offer a non-binding consultation to evaluate dental braces

Incorrect teeth can cause major problems such as jaw failure and damage to the teeth. Therefore, you can get support from the health care system when you or your child needs dental care.

Many children and young people get orthodontics, but also more and more adults see the benefit of regulating their teeth. Improper tooth position can in the long run cause major problems in the jaw joint. Proper teeth are also easier to clean.

It is the dentist or dental hygienist who assesses whether orthodontics is necessary. If they recommend braces, they refer you to an orthodontist. It is the orthodontist who decides if there is a need for treatment and if so, what type of treatment.

Why braces?

The purpose of orthodontics is usually to change the joint and tooth position so that the function is better. By reducing an overbite, the risk of damage to the front teeth themselves is also reduced. If the bite is open, braces can contribute to better bite and chewing function. In the event of large hatches or loss of teeth in the front, the hatch can be sealed by means of braces.

Some people want braces for cosmetic reasons, for example because their teeth are crooked.

Price of braces

Since the price of braces depends on how extensive the treatment is, the price can vary from 15,000 NOK to 60,000 or more. For many, this is a lot of money. Therefore, children and young people receive support from the health service when they need braces. In some cases, you as an adult can also receive support if you need braces.

Feel free to come to us for a non-binding consultation.
