Orthodontic treatment – treatment of teeth position abnormalities, malocclusion as well as preventive treatment of maxillofacial pathology.
Orthodontic treatment does not only straighten the teeth and upgrades aesthetics of the smile but also improves overall teeth health and condition. Risk of caries decreases noticeably since it is much easier to maintain clean teeth when they are in the correct position.
Lower chance of gum inflammation (gingivitis)
Teeth wear less when they are in the correct position.
Chewing forces distribute equally when all teeth are in the correct position. That causes lower absorption of bone tissue.
Lower chance of gum recession (uncovering of tooth cervical part)
Orthodontic treatment can be performed in a very wide range of age, but the purpose of treatment, methods of treatment, the risk of complications and final results may be different.
You may find interesting that origins of orthodontic treatment are dated back to 1000 BC.
At our clinic correction of teeth position abnormalities and malocclusion we perform in following ways:

Ich bin für eine Behandlung aus Deutschland gekommen. Von Anfang bis Ende wurde ich super betreut und bin mit dem Ergebnis rundum zufrieden. Es hat mich viel weniger gekostet als in meinem Heimatland und die Leistung von den Ärzten und Helferinnen bei Processus hat mich wirklich überzeugt. Ich werde es weiterempfehlen!
Jūsų klinikoje man atliko burnos ertmės higieną. Esu be galo dėkinga higienistei Ingridai už malonų bendravimą, išsamų paaiškinimą ir patarimus dantų priežiūros klausimais. Tikrai profesionaliai atliko savo darbą, pagerėjimą pajutau iš karto, dantenos nebekraujuoja. Ačiū!
When a friend of mine told me he had travelled to Kaunas to fix his teeth, I was kind of sceptical about it. His main motivation was that it is way cheaper than in Germany. When I got serious issues with my teeth that my german insurance was not willing to cover and counted me an estimated "infinity" for my procedures i started really thinking about doing the same. So, after a short Email correspondency with the clinics administrator, Ieva, i decided to give it a chance. I got very cheap flights to Vilnius (70 € there and back to Berlin), Getting to Kaunas was just about a 1 h train trip. Very easy and comfortable. I stayed in a lovely hotel. The personell in the PROCESSUS clinic was very friendly, welcoming and helpful.
I found out that german doctors had given me diagnoses that weren't even there to make more money of me.
Dr. Baltrusaitiene showed me exactly what is she about to do and why. With the help of a 3D-X-Ray of my jaw, before she started her work. The procedure was as pleasant and as painless as possible. Afterwards I had gotten clear advices on what i could do and what not. When I saw the price at the end I was positively surprised. It was almost 3 times less than what i would have paid in Germany. Also I feel like a person now. Not living in pain everyday anymore. All in all i can only recommend visiting PROCESSUS.
Competent and friendly personell, the most modern appliances and a fair price is definitely worth travelling europe for your health. 5/5 Stars, Well done!
Thank you for my new smile!
