Our Treatments

You can have orthodontic treatment at any time in your life. The treatment and the reasons for it vary if you are an adult, a teenager or a child. Find out more about treatments for different age groups in this section.

In children aged 6 to 8 years, the treatment plays a preventive role with the aim of widening the palate. It is followed by an interception phase, from 8 to 11 years old, and a monitoring period. Depending on the evolution of the teeth, we may recommend additional treatment in adolescence.

This treatment is also often a preparatory treatment for treatment in adolescence.

In adolescence, the treatment may be a continuation of a treatment received in childhood or it may be the first treatment. Your teenager can consult us as early as age 12. We will then choose the best appliance, among all the different types available, for an effective treatment.

Adults can also benefit from orthodontics for various reasons: aesthetic, readjustment following an accident, late correction, etc. You can begin treatment at any age. You think you need it? Consult us.

Aligners are an innovative system for teeth straightening. Aligners provide an aesthetically pleasing and comfortable treatment, facilitate oral hygiene and reduce the number of appointments.
Self-ligating technology Self-ligating braces may look like traditional braces, but they use high-tech light force and archwires to speed up treatment and reduce the number of adjustment appointments.
Ultima Damon system The latest revolution in orthodontics. A true full expression orthodontic system that was launched in our office in October 2020 and in Europe December 2020.
Ceramic braces Ceramic braces work in the same way as metal braces but are less visible since they are made of clear and less visible material that matches the teeth’s colour.
Lingual Braces Lingual braces are the only truly invisible treatment because the brackets are bonded to the inside of the teeth.
Temporary anchorage devices (TADs) are miniscrews placed in either alveolar or extra-alveolar bone to treat teeth and jaw alignment. TADs can be used in combination with braces or alone.
Veneers are used to correct the color of teeth when whitening is insufficient, or/and their shape is slightly broken or worn, and when there are slight misalignments (small overlaps, interdental spaces).
Teeth whitening with Aligners After taking toothprints, an aligner is prepared for the patient to use it with a prescribed gel.
Teeth whitening with lasers
Laser teeth whitening is an effective way to reduce stains and can lighten teeth up to 10 shades

Endo-buccal orthoses represent an alternative to the reference treatment of obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome (OSA), continuous positive pressure by nasal mask (CPAP).

These are mostly devices that position the lower jaw or mandible forward.
The impact of this mandibular advancement is twofold:

Premièrement, elle produit une avancée de la langue, empêchant alors la base de langue de faire obstacle au passage de l’air. En second lieu, elle remet en tension l’ensemble des parois du pharynx qui chez les sujets prédisposés aux apnées ou au ronflement, ont tendance à vibrer et à se collaber, diminuant alors ou obstruant complètement le passage de l’air.

For OSA, nearly two out of three patients can be considered to respond very favorably to treatment.
For the remaining third, the response is insufficient to make the orthosis an alternative treatment to permanent CPAP.

Wearing mandibular advancement braces can cause tooth or gum sensitivity, salivation disorders, and painful tension in the joints or muscles of the jaw.

Ces troubles contre-indiquent rarement la poursuite du traitement et dépendent grandement des conditions de mise en œuvre. La Haute autorité de santé (HAS) précise que l’orthèse doit être prescrite, comme la PPC, par un spécialiste du sommeil. 

This therapy is simple, reversible and of moderate cost compared to CPAP; however, it is not possible at this time to predict the effectiveness of the device before its implementation.

Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSA) is an extremely common sleep disorder, affecting 4 to 7% of the adult population.

Start my treatment

Do you need a treatment? You must first meet with us to evaluate which one is best for you. Three appointments with Dr. Ellouze are required before starting your treatment. Find out what each appointment entails here.

My first appointment: a yes or no device

Your first appointment is a consultation with Dr. Ellouze where we explain the different options available to you. We will discuss with you whether you really need treatment and whether it should start now or later.

If we decide that treatment is necessary, we will schedule a second appointment.

My second appointment: a diagnosis

During your second visit, we take x-rays, impressions and photos to help Dr. Ellouze make an accurate diagnosis. He will then be able to suggest the most appropriate treatment for you.

During your third appointment, three to five days later, we will present you with the results and the selected treatment.

My third appointment: a treatment strategy

It is at your third appointment that we present Dr. Ellouze's diagnosis. We will then suggest the appropriate treatment strategy, an estimate of the duration, the type of appliance possible (visible or invisible) and a treatment package. We will schedule future appointments with you to begin treatment.
