Orthodontics for Adults and Children
We are very pleased to offer a full range of orthodontic services for children and adults. As a practice we are very proud of the beautiful and healthy smiles created for our patients. For over thirty years, we have been privileged to treat the orthodontic needs of many families. Some of these families are now seeing their third generation of orthodontic care.
Orthodontics for Children
It's best for the orthodontist to see children by age 7 to advise if orthodontic treatment is required as it is the best time for young patients to be treated. The first permanent molars and incisors have usually come in by that time and crossbites, crowding, and other problems can be evaluated. When treatment is begun early, the orthodontist can guide the growth of the jaw and guide incoming permanent teeth. Early treatment can also regulate the width of the upper and lower dental arches, gain space for permanent teeth, avoid the need for permanent tooth extractions, reduce likelihood of impacted permanent teeth, correct thumb-sucking, and eliminate abnormal swallowing or speech problems. In other words, early treatment can simplify later treatments.
Orthodontics for Adults
Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age and adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile. One of every five patients in orthodontic treatment is over 21 and almost 45% of our practice are adult patients. As an adult teeth are no longer growing and in many cases the teeth and gums have experienced some breakdown orthodontic treatment presents extra challenges. We spend countless hours in continuing education courses learning new ways to tackle problems faced in working with adult orthodontic cases. In the end, our goal is to not only diagnose the patient but to offer a variety of ways to achieve the smile they've always wanted.
No matter what your age, it's important to have straight teeth!
Properly aligned teeth make your smile look great and also help your tongue, muscles, and jaws function correctly. Improper alignment of teeth can result in tooth decay and gum disease. Hurontario Dental Centre offers comprehensive orthodontic (braces) treatments for adults and children.
To correct misaligned teeth, our specialists can apply traditional metal or clear braces. If you don't want people to know that you're wearing braces, he may recommend lingual orthodontics or Invisalign. For children from six to ten years old, we can apply functional trainers which remove the need for early orthodontics.
Undergoing instant orthodontics treatment does not need to be costly and uncomfortable to be effective. We can utilize the most advanced techniques in orthodontics to speed up major treatments and avoid surgery. If you want to straighten your smile, schedule a consultation with Hurontario Dental Centre today.
