Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontics focuses on correcting improperly aligned teeth and jaws. Misaligned teeth, aside from being challenging to clean, also affect one’s appearance. Many people desire a stunning smile, and straight teeth play a significant role in enhancing facial aesthetics.

Moreover, misaligned teeth are at a higher risk of early loss due to decay and gum disease. They can put additional strain on chewing muscles, potentially causing headaches, TMJ syndrome, and pain in the neck, shoulders, and back.

Orthodontic care offers several advantages, including improved oral health, an enhanced appearance, and the likelihood of keeping your natural teeth healthy for a lifetime.

Some of the following dental conditions may be treated with Orthodontic treatment:

Where the upper front teeth are too far forward (protrude) over the lower teeth

Sometimes compared to a “bulldog” appearance where the lower teeth are too far forward, or the upper teeth are too far back

When the upper teeth do not come down slightly in front of the lower teeth when biting together normally

Space between the biting surfaces of the front and/or the side teeth when the back teeth bite together

When the centre of your upper front teeth do not line up with the centre of your lower front teeth

Spaces, or gaps, between the teeth as a result of missing teeth or teeth that perhaps due to their size do not “fill up” the mouth

When there are too many teeth for the dental ridge to accommodate

Orthodontic Treatment: How does it work?

Orthodontic appliances, both fixed and removable, are used to help move teeth, retrain muscles and affect the growth of the jaws. These appliances work by placing gentle pressure on the teeth and jaws. 

You may be a candidate for Invisalign (invisible braces) or you may need traditional braces, your dentist will be able to guide and advise you as to what will work in your specific case.

Fixed Braces or Clear Aligners

Traditional fixed braces are metal brackets attached to the teeth with wires and tiny rubber bands. Invisalign or clear braces are thin plastic aligners which work to align the teeth discretely and effectively.
