It is not just the beautiful Smile

it Must be really clasp a tooth? The conclusion of a report that is currently in Germany for headlines, is clear: The majority of orthodontic treatments bring medically, nothing. Or in the words of the authors: There are no significant differences compared to no treatment had been found. This means that teeth are after a correction, maybe a straight or gaps in the Teeth of small. The teeth but not longer or the gums are not healthier than without treatment.

The report was commissioned by the German Ministry of health at a private scientific Institute. This after the German Finance had expressed control in the spring of last year, the suspicion that the public insurance must take a lot of cost for dental corrections. In Germany, approximately every second child receives braces.

In Switzerland, the Figures are not comparable. The latest of the Federal office for statistics are from the year 2012. At that time, 54 percent of 15 - to-24 reported in the health survey-Year-old to wear braces or have worn. The survey also shows that the proportion of the clasp-makers has increased significantly in recent decades. Requested orthodontists also indicate that the demand is not least went back for sure.

The values from Germany and Switzerland are high in international comparison. In Sweden only one in four young people wearing a brace, in the UK, only one in every six. "The vast majority of the world's population lives well braces without tooth," says Schätzle, the Swiss orthodontist Marc. He is an honorary Professor at the University of Zurich and in Lucerne. In most treatments because it is also not a purely medical problem, but an aesthetic and psychological Problem. The company expect, today, a good Tooth and jaw position, people would be judged. So, for example, a person with standing would be perceived under the jaw by many as silly.

The reason insurance does not pay

In Switzerland, the compulsory health insurance does not cover most dental corrections. You are usually paid by parents out of pocket or by a private insurance. Only in the case of severe misalignment the disability insurance comes in.

In Germany the public health insurance company pays is often a large part of the treatment: then, if the Doctors make a possible future impairment of health is due to the incorrect position. The German orthodontist is accused of therefore, treatments with advanced medical arguments.

In Switzerland, this is due to the private financing of the treatment is not necessary. Jan Danz, Vice-President of the orthodontic society, says: In Switzerland, will be discussed prior to a treatment in the rule, the purpose of dental correction. The only optical perfection, and that this will held from the beginning.

Medically necessary for 10 percent of the children

But how many clips for medical or aesthetic reasons, are now actually useful–? Medically necessary in the sense of a deviation from the Norm with damage due to a defined cause and a treatment for probably about 10 percent of children, according to Jan Danz. This means that a Tooth or Jaw displacement is deviated so far from the Norm that it leads to a direct injury.

Another 20 to 30 percent percent of children, estimates Dr. Danz, be dealt with from a meaningful but non-medically necessary reasons. "Someone has a bad tooth position, this can, for example, have later impact on his career," says Danz. Or 8 percent of the children had a missing permanent Tooth (excluding wisdom teeth), would be to maintain chewing ability is not replaced. However, it is usually the desire of the young people and the parents that there is a resulting gap-Toothed jaws orthopedic closed. The Rest of the treatments it goes according to Danz, this is primarily the desire of the patient to a perfect set of Teeth.
