Orthodontics for children in Budapest

In what cases is it worth taking a child to an orthodontist?

Braces can improve the beauty of our smile and our dental health at any age. However, there is an ideal time to start wearing braces. In this period, the best end result can be achieved in the least amount of time and with the least financial sacrifice.  

During the loss of baby teeth, it is important taking a child to an orthodontist for a consultation and if necessary, start an orthodontic treatment.

Paediatric orthodontics is not only about straightening the teeth and the beauty of the smile, but also about providing a healthy bite for a lifetime.

For the correct bite the optimal position of teeth and jaw bone is required. This position determines the look of our face, the quality of chewing and last but not least how we can clean the teeth. This period is ideal, because it is still possible to control the growth of jaws so to prevent our children from future complications.

Such a process of course strengthens the child’s mental health while increasing their self-confidence and improving their self-image. It also awakes health consciousness and teaches them pay attention to personal hygiene. Not to mention that wearing braces has once again become trendy so kids can feel privileged for having one.

There are dental concerns that should be treated at this stage for the optimal results:

  • Correction of overcrowded teeth by creating more space.
  • Creation of ideal profile and the formation of appropriate bite pattern by the control of jaw development.
  • Alignments of sticking out teeth.
  • Keeping up space for still hidden teeth

Orthodontics for teenagers

As a teen when should I to turn to an orthodontist?

The answer to this question is very simple: when you are in need for this. There is of course a more professional definition because the goal for this age group is to support the healthy and smooth development of permanent teeth and preserve the soundness of these teeth.

The irregularity of teeth at a young age is not only an aesthetic issue or source of speech disorder but the long-term health of the teeth may be at risk. Cleaning overcrowded teeth is almost impossible and this makes them susceptible to early decay, especially if this is combined with sugar-rich eating habit, too.

Plaque formation in this case is also quicker and that could result in periodontal diseases.

In addition, bite force on teeth in abnormal occlusion puts tension on the teeth from the incorrect direction. This places an increased stress on the soft tissues that hold the teeth. All this can result in the early wearing and losing of teeth.

The most serious consequences of overcrowding can be the development of jaw joint disorders at a young age.

Although orthodontic treatments aim to reserve the teeth for a long time and maintain our general health conditions, we should not forget about mental aspects either. In such a subtle period of time irregular teeth can cause anxiety in adolescence.

During teenage years spectacular results can be achieved because the evolution of jaws can be controlled nicely. We have to take this challenge knowing that orthodontic treatments offer the only solutions to young adults suffering from chronic overcrowding.

We have confidence in the young generation and trust that a higher level of health consciousness will extends to the health and harmony of teeth as well.

Dr. Péter Márton Steinhof orthodontist gives convincing arguments when it is worth deciding on braces

Orthodontics for adults

As an adult when should I turn to an orthodontist? Isn’t it too late?

The world has changed a lot in the last decade regarding orthodontic treatments in adult age. Firstly, new techniques have emerged that finally took the special anatomic attributes of the adult into consideration thus applying the appropriate technique for the treatments. Secondly, the perception of adults wearing braces has also changed significantly.

Wearing braces as an adult is no longer a sign of immaturity, rather it is a sign of a health-conscious person who has high personal standards.

Adult orthodontic treatments always involve fix braces, usually of soft-power devices. The time scale varies between 1 and 2 years, and the procedure demands patience and attention.

There are important benefits of adult orthodontic treatments that are easily accessible for you:

  • It gives you an aesthetic outlook that makes you confident in your professional and private life.
  • Your irregular teeth could no longer prevent you from speaking clearly.
  • It resolves the difficulties of chewing that often leads to digestive disorders.
  • The jaw joints will not be damaged because of uneven load, thus long-term issues of the jaw joints become avoidable.
  • With a straightened set of teeth, every single tooth can be brushed properly. Therefore, the risk of early formation of plaque and decay is low.

Getting involved in an adult orthodontic treatment is worthy as it brings health and mental benefits, too.

Correction of deviations of bite with orthodontic treatment

The situation when the connection of upper and lower teeth is not optimal is considered a deviation of bite. As an orthodontic issue it has multiple existing forms. Do you recognise any of the following symptoms on you?

  • Open bite: with closed jaw there is a small gap between the upper and lower arch of teeth around the incisors.
  • Cross bite: upper arch of teeth is narrower than the lower one. This results in a reverse bite relation that limits the growth of the upper jaw. This problem plays an important role in the evolution of face and can even cause the deformation of the face.
  • Overjet or protruding teeth: upper front teeth are sticking out and there might be gaps in between the teeth. In this case, it is common for the lips not to close properly, so a closed mouth cannot be a state of rest.
  • Underbite or lower jaw protrusion: the lower teeth are positioned ahead of the upper teeth and the profile is adversely affected.



Bite disorders are various therefore only personalized indications can offer orthodontic treatment plans.

Orthodontic procedure is an essential element of such treatment but the involvement of other specialists into the procedures may be necessary.

The most frequently used techniques for bite disorders are the use of soft-power devices. Although, success can only be achieved with a complex approach of the problem. The first step in the whole procedure must be the definition of the core problems on a personal consultation.

It becomes clear on the consultation what path needs to be taken in order for you to forget about bite issues for good. Dr. Péter Márton Steinhof who has been successfully dealing with bite disorders for 9 years will escort you on this path. You don’t have to live with your bite deviations. Let’s treat them together with orthodontic means.

The solution of deep overbite with orthodontic treatments

We are referring to deep overbite when the upper incisors, in an abnormal condition, cover more than 1-1.5 mm of the lower ones. This phenomenon can easily be examined by you when looking in the mirror. There are different volumes of deep bite, but the bigger the distance the more serious the problem. So, we need to look for solutions and the reasons are more anatomical than aesthetic.

The effective orthodontic management of deep overbite is subject to its complexity. To achieve good result, one may need other specialists such as massage-therapist (manual therapist) or speech therapist.

The secret of a successful treatment is to discover and to start treating the problem as soon as possible with an orthodontist. This way the symptoms become less prominent and the treatment procedures less stressful. By doing so we not only make our younger year easier but thinking about the future we can also prevent chronical dental and joint-related issues of older ages.

Deep overbite is indeed a complex issue and it is very likely that different specialists need to work together led by an orthodontist to solve the problem with positive result.

The first step on the way is a personal consultation where the exact volume of the deep bite is defined. At Saint Lucas SPA Dental the personalized treatment plan leading to solving your problem will be based on the diagnosis.

The first consultation is free of charge and provides invaluable information about the procedure that finally results in the solution.

The correction of a narrow and thin smile line with braces

Narrow and thin smile is a phenomenon that is an aesthetics as well as anatomic issue. It may emerge in childhood but often arise in adult ages. Behind this phenomenon is the bottleneck of upper jaw but its formation may be affected by the appearance of permanent teeth.

The problem requires fairly quick treatment with orthodontic means because it may be the source of numerous health and mental issues later:

  • Aesthetic aspects: facial harmony is affected disadvantageously by the irregularity of teeth that could further influence one's self-esteem and general feeling.
  • Health aspects: in case of long-term issues, it can cause malfunction of jaw joints that requires lengthy treatments.
  • Preventive aspects: the structure of tooth could also be damaged that can result in losing the tooth and artificial replacement later.

The problem of narrow and thin smile line is complex therefore it cries out for just as complex solutions.

If you noticed this problem on your face, we suggest you visit us at Saint Lucas SPA Dental for a free orthodontic consultation. You will be provided with a diagnosis and a personalized treatment plan by Dr. Péter Márton Steinhof orthodontist.

Such procedures require firm determination and real sacrifices from you:

  • In childhood wearing removable braces is recommended.
  • In adulthood wearing fix non-removable braces is advised.
  • The help of a speech therapist is recommended to avoid or correct speech defects.
  • Restoring muscles and joints dysfunction is suggested with the use of special massage therapies (manual-therapeutic treatments).

Only after a thorough examination can we define the complex problem of the narrow smile line.

The elimination of crowded teeth with braces

The unevenness of teeth is usually a result of some kind of a physical impact. While constantly growing in childhood, endless stress stimulates the body to compensate the effect of this phenomenon and functionally balance the loads on the teeth. This leads to crowding teeth and irregular growing. Properly cleaning the crowded teeth is not possible that make them prone to form cavities. Your essential interest is to have these crowding treated sooner than later by a professional with relevant experiences in the field of orthodontic problems.

So, it’s worth reacting quickly already in childhood and turning to an orthodontist with this problem.

When it comes to orthodontic issues the priority is to find out and treat the core reason of crowding. With the help of a sequence of consciously planned orthodontic treatments can make irregular teeth even and easy to clean that help avoid the formation of cavities.

In case of minor overcrowding plastic shield devices can be helpful. More complex cases on the other hand require traditional treatments with modern techniques for a long-lasting solution.

Overcrowding is an issue that can be solved fully and with great success with braces. If you decided to have this problem solved, visit Saint Lucas SPA Dental for a free consultation, and get to know the techniques that work for you successfully.

It is Dr. Péter Márton Steinhof orthodontist, a specialist with 15 years of experience who will help you on your orthodontic treatment.
