Orthodontics for Children Early detection, costs covered
The timing of an orthodontic treatment largely depends on the development of a child's teeth and the degree of misalignment. Age is less of a factor here. It is often advisable to correct crossbites found in primary teeth (5-8 years), for example. Moreover, a visit to the orthodontist is also advisable after the primary teeth are replaced by permanent teeth.
The costs covered by health insurance
For patients that are 18 and under, the cost of treatment is fully covered by public and private health insurance plans. In most cases, holders of public health insurance in Germany (Krankenkasse) usually pay 10% - 20% on their own, which is then fully reimbursed by the insurance company once the treatment is complete and was successful.
