Your orthodontist Dr. Mareike Gedigk in Düsseldorf-Bilk near Neuss.
In our practice “Kieferorthopädie am Südring” in Düsseldorf-Bilk near Neuss, we offer children, adolescents and adults a comprehensive range of services of modern orthodontics.
In our modern and friendly designed practice rooms at Aachener Straße 126, there is a relaxed and calm atmosphere in which we take care of our patients and accompany them through the treatment with know-how and much empathy. atients, young or old, whether from Düsseldorf or Neuss – are the focus of our daily work. The aim is to correct your tooth and/or jaw misalignment with the appropriate orthodontic methods and techniques and gradually bring a confident and beautiful smile to your lips.
In our practice, we do not consider diagnostics, therapy and aftercare of dental and jaw misalignments separately, but in the holistic context of the physical and mental condition of our patients. We explore connections and influences of the soul and the body, which can interact with the misalignments. For this purpose, we use both holistic diagnostics and treatment:
We do not consider your tooth and jaw malposition in isolation due to our holistic treatment approach, but in connection with the adjacent parts of the body. In particular, we will deal with the following points:
- Oral posture/mouth breathing, lips, nose/nasal breathing
- Head and body posture
- Tongue position, facial muscles, chewing muscles
- Cervical spine
Here, the aspect of the physical fitness of our patients plays another important role. Posture-related misalignments can be positively influenced, for example, by strengthening the back, shoulder, neck, facial and jaw muscles.
In accordance with our holistic treatment concept, we work interdisciplinary with other therapists and physicians (dentists, ENT doctors, physiotherapists, orthopedists, pediatricians, speech therapists, osteopaths and occupational therapists) in a multidisciplinary manner, whereby we can contribute to a comprehensive, successful treatment together and from the point of view of the various disciplines.
The optimal esthetics as well as functionality of the teeth and jaws are restored with regard to the above-mentioned points (diagnostics) by means of orthodontic treatment in our practice in Düsseldorf near Neuss with the modern means of orthodontics.
The well-being, the inner balance and the healthy posture of our patients are very important to us, just beyond the professional view of the orthodontist. Our work aims at sustainable treatment outcomes.
In the treatment of children, it is increasingly noticeable that characteristic body misalignments increasingly have a negative influence on the development of the facial bones and jaws. As a result, posture-related tooth and jaw misalignments as well as jaw malformations can occur.
Orthodontic therapy of children in our practice in Düsseldorf on the opposite side of Neuss makes sense as soon as you as a parent or the family dentist notice misalignments of your child’s teeth or jaw. Early treatment of young children can also make sense. In an early development phase of the child, misalignments and malfunctions of the jaw and teeth can be prevented in good time or treated with gentle, child-friendly orthodontic appliances.
Since the child is in an early growthphase, orthodontists have the possibility to influence the natural growth with removable appliances. The shaping of the jaws and correction of the tooth misalignment is carried out on the one hand via active plates, on the other hand via passive acting functional orthodontic appliances (FKOs). In contrast to the active acting loose braces, the FKOs act in a passive way. They are used to adapt the facial muscles and bones to these appliances during the growth phase. In this way, we influence the facial and jaw growth of small patients. We use the Bionator especially in early treatment. It positively affects the tongue, chewing and neck muscles and has an influence on the complete body posture. Functional orthodontic devices are thus an important component of our holistic approach.
Please also inform yourself about our comprehensive range of services for teens and adults. Among other things, we offer invisible orthodontic treatments with Invisalign®. Information can be found on our website.
