Mississauga dentists offer orthodontic treatment
Having an attractive smile has never been more important. Straight teeth bring value to a selfie, dating site, or job interview, and boost self-confidence. Plus, a straight smile has health benefits. The Mississauga dentists at Huron Dental Centre offer orthodontic treatment (with a FREE consultation) as part of their commitment to your beautiful smile.
Straight teeth establish healthier mouths
Did you know that straight teeth contribute to oral health? Crooked teeth create overlaps, spaces, and nooks that hide bits of food debris. Teeth may be tight, making flossing more challenging. This sets ideal conditions for harmful oral bacteria to flourish. These microorganisms, and the sticky film of plaque they generate, are the starting point of tooth decay and gum disease.
Misaligned teeth may also disrupt occlusion – the way upper and lower teeth come together when you bite down. This reduces chewing function (which may affect digestion) and can lead to painful TMJ disorders. Misalignment may cause teeth to wear prematurely, as well.
It is never too late to go straight
Once, braces were for thought of as just for kids. With modern techniques and materials, adults can take advantage of straight, attractive teeth, too. While every patient receives personalized attention at Huron Dental Centre, the process follows these general steps:
- A thorough examination is performed, including x-rays and impressions, to evaluate overall oral health, alignment, and bite.
- Existing dental problems, such as tooth decay or gum disease must be addressed before orthodontic treatment begins.
- The dentist uses molds of your mouth to design a plan and mock-up of treatment.
- Tooth surfaces are conditioned, brackets are cemented, and wires are inserted and tightened.
- You receive instructions on food limitations, and home hygiene to keep braces and teeth clean during treatment.
- Adjustment visits are scheduled. At these appointments, wires are moved and snugged, or replaced.
- Regular checkups are especially important while appliances are in place.
- At the conclusion of treatment, braces are removed, and a retainer is provided to maintain beautiful results.
Our goal with this treatment is to get your smile aligned as efficiently and comfortably as possible. Call 855 393-0900 in Mississauga to schedule a FREE orthodontic consultation.
Huron Dental Centre - All you need to know about Orthodontics
What is Orthodontics?
Dental orthodontics specializes in treating teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly.
What are the Orthodontic Appliances to straighten teeth?
- Clear liners
These appliances help to straighten one’s teeth for better function, health, and aesthetics.
Who is an ideal candidate for Orthodontics treatment?
Patients who have the below conditions are candidates for Orthodontic Treatment.
- Over Bite
- Under Bite
- Cross Bite
- Open Bite
- Misplaced Midline
Most cases can be corrected through traditional braces or clear aligner therapy.
Severe conditions may need orthognathic surgery or jaw surgery, along with orthodontic treatment.
Why is Orthodontics treatment necessary?
Crooked teeth or malpositioned jaws makes teeth harder to clean. This leads to tooth decay, periodontal, and/or gum disease resulting in early loss of teeth. This can also cause additional stress on the chewing muscles and lead to headaches, TMJ disorders, neck, shoulder, and back pain.
Also, it affects the overall appearance of individuals and makes them self-conscious. With timely orthodontic treatment, clients get a healthy mouth, pleasing appearance, and teeth that can last a lifetime.
Invisalign explained by Dr. Savita Singh from Huron Dental Centre
What are the options available to straighten teeth?
There are two methods to straighten teeth through orthodontics.
- Traditional braces: Brackets and wires
- Invisalign: Clear aligners therapy
How do traditional braces work?
Traditional braces work by attaching small individual brackets onto the surface of the tooth made with metal or ceramic. And are bonded with a glue-like material.
Archwires prefabricated to the ideal arch form are placed inside each bracket.
These wires have a memory so that when they are deflected and attached to the teeth, they want to go back to the original shape. This is how braces and wires work together to straighten our teeth.
How does the Invisalign work?
Invisalign or clear aligners therapy uses a series of aligners or trays. For example, a series of 30 trays that pushes the teeth into a more aligned position with the progression of each tray.
Adults love Invisalign because, for the most part, they are unnoticeable. They can also be removed to eat and brush.
Invisalign works by using a series of trays that push the teeth into position with the progression of each tray. Each tray is worn for 22 hours a day, two weeks at a time.
