Orthodontics is a dental procedure that addresses, prevents, and corrects mispositioned teeth and jaws, as well as differing bite patterns. Not to worry, because the abnormal alignment of the teeth and jaws is very common. Abundantly, orthodontists can evaluate individuals’ teeth and set them on a path to success that will help fix any wrongdoings. In saying this, orthodontists often turn to braces to help restructure an individual’s teeth and jaw.
Hi-Tech Family Dentistry offers a variety of orthodontic treatment options, depending on your needs, budget, and lifestyle. Be sure to schedule a consultation with our team to learn what treatment is right for you, your child, or your family member. Here are the services we offer:
Traditional metal or ceramic braces have been used for decades to straighten teeth. In recent years, advances in orthodontic treatment have resulted in braces that are lower in profile, more comfortable, and easier to care for.
Invisalign is a great option for those wanting to avoid the hassle, discomfort, and time commitment of traditional metal braces. This highly effective treatment uses a series of clear, custom-made aligners and offers beautiful results.
Orthodontics truly comes down to the condition of your mouth and jaw. For some people, they take great care of their teeth and it will show. Others may still take great care of their teeth but still need braces and there is nothing wrong with that. Nonetheless, you should still talk to your dentist about directing you towards an orthodontist. They will help you best find someone that can fit your needs.
When it comes down to Orthodontics, it’s all about the positioning of your teeth and jaw. For some people, a change may be more evident as they may notice teeth growing out of place or potential growing pains. This is why it’s best to contact your dentist so they can evaluate your needs. In doing so, they can direct you somewhere that can provide you with the necessary help to help reposition your teeth.
In general, there is no real timeline for an orthodontic treatment simply because it depends on the severity of the issues. Not everyone is going to have the same needs as others and that is completely normal. With that said, orthodontic treatment usually takes anywhere from 12 to 36 months to be completed fully. However, more severe issues will take longer, depending on the condition of your teeth.
Both dentists and orthodontists are key to helping individuals fix their oral health. A dentist is focused on the specifics of a client’s teeth, gums, nerves, and jaw, while an orthodontist deals with correcting bites and straightening your teeth. Ultimately, both people are key to helping you obtain a smile you can be confident with!
In many instances, braces are seen as an investment. This is because it’s not a cheap treatment, but they sure are effective. In saying this, in Canada, the typical treatment can range anywhere from $3000-$10,000. This cost mainly depends on the severity of the issue and what kind of process is needed to correct your teeth. Speak with your orthodontist about a potential payment plan to find a process that better works for you!
