Orthodontic treatment

Orthodontic treatment (such as the fitting of braces) is a discipline within dentistry. Orthodontic appliances can be removable or fixed.

Your health insurance provider will cover the costs of orthodontic treatment required because of a risk to health, but not the cost of cosmetic orthodontic treatment. You must first obtain the authorisation of your health insurance provider before undergoing orthodontic treatment.

For further information, please contact your health insurance provider.
