Of course, at the end of orthodontic treatment, the teeth should be straight and symmetrical with the bite being relaxed and in the proper position. However, many adult patients are only interested in improving aestehics of the front teeth, but are not striveing for anatomically perfect results. , These patients request the orthodontists to do treatment only on the visible front teeth. This is acceptable for adults after detailed examinations but only occurs in exceptional cases while dealing with children and adolescents. Not only do we strive provide the highest quality possible, we also measure the quality with the internationally known PAR index since 2010.
An independent scientist, from Cardiff University (Wales, UK), evaluated our results from 2011 and 2012. Severe cases are allowed up to 50 PAR-points and mild cases are allowed 10 points. In order for the treatment quality to be considered “good,” the final PAR value is 5 points with at least a 70% rating of improvement. We deal with a wide array of treatments, such as complete orthodontic treatments, aesthetic treatments for the front teeth only, and early corrective treatments intended for primary school-age children. Comprehensive orthodontic treatments are performed on 90% of our patients.
- Comprehensive orthodontic treatments: 25.32 PAR points in the beginning, 6.02 points at the end, 74.4% improvement
- Short aesthetic treatments: 19.39 PAR points in the beginning, 8.83 points at the end, 52.6% improvement
- Early treatment in primary school-age children: 19.18 PAR points in the beginning, 7.45 points at the end, 56.4% improvement
