Orthodontics – Invisalign
It is never too late to straighten your smile!
If you’re already self conscious about your smile, traditional braces that may attract more attention to your teeth may have held you back from improving your smile…That is until now!
Invisalign is a great alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign creates custom fitted removable trays which are changed about every two weeks, progressively straightening, aligning and improving your smile. The Invisalign Aligners are clear and virtually unnoticeable to those around you. Although they will notice that you smile more often!
Depending on your individual situation, the duration of the Invisalign procedure is about the same as traditional braces …but the results are indisputable.
- The removable trays allow for easier cleaning and oral hygiene practices.
- Normal brushing and flossing regimens can be maintained.
- Trays can be removed when eating.
- Irritation from metal braces is avoided.
- Properly aligned teeth aid in speech, chewing, gum and bone health.
If you’ve been avoiding straightening your teeth due to the nature of traditional braces ask us about Invisalign on your next visit. We will be able to refer you to an orthodontist who can keep your smile in tip top shape.
|Orthodontics for kids|
Some children naturally have straight teeth, others are not as lucky. The size of your child’s teeth and how they fit together are inherited traits, as are malocclusions. Malocclusion is the dental term that literally means “bad bite” and there are a number of different malocclusions.
Orthodontics work to correct malocclusions by bringing a bite into proper alignment.
Our Yonge and Eglinton dental team will keep a close eye on your child’s oral development.
|We will ensure that there is room for their bright smile to grow. If your child requires orthodontic treatment, we will recommend the appropriate starting age.
Early treatment can prevent more extensive and costly treatment later in life. Correcting your child’s bite can improve their oral health as well as boost their self-confidence.
We would be pleased to talk to you about the benefits of orthodontics next time you are in to see us.
