Orthodontics

Orthodontie et orthopédie dento-faciale

Orthodontics can be used for patients of all ages. It’s not just for teens! Most often, people think braces are just meant to create a more attractive smile, but their primary goal is actually to correct occlusion problems:

  • Misaligned teeth
  • Overlapping teeth
  • Overbite
  • Gaps

Orthodontic treatments apply gentle pressure to your teeth to shift them to the right position. Dentofacial orthopedic treatments target the jawbone and are used to correct the position of the jaw.

What are the consequences of misaligned teeth?

  • Trouble chewing certain foods
  • Wear on the teeth
  • Speech disorders
  • Muscle tension and pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Difficulty cleaning teeth properly
  • Higher risk of developing cavities

Treatment options

Orthodontic devices

In children aged 7 to 12, orthodontic devices are used to correct tooth misalignment.

They encourage the teeth and bones in and around the mouth to grow properly, thereby preventing more expensive and lengthy treatments in the future. Interceptive procedures can even prevent the need for jaw surgery.

Different types of devices exist for different problems.

Braces

Conventional braces are needed for major tooth alignment problems. But don’t worry, they’re not what they used to be!

We use small, easy-to-clean brackets that are more comfortable and shorten treatment times.

You can choose between metal brackets or less noticeable porcelain brackets.

 

Invisalign

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that involves using clear removable aligners that are custom-made just for you. Since they are barely noticeable, we often call this system “invisible orthodontics.”

This innovative solution involves using various types of technology, including digital impressions, 3D modelling and 3D printing.

Special software is used to mould the aligners so that they shift your teeth toward the right position. The total number of aligners you’ll need depends on how much your teeth need to shift.

In order for the treatment to be successful, you have to wear the corrective aligners at all times, except when you eat or brush your teeth. For fast and effective results, the aligners should be changed on a weekly basis.

We will perform a complete orthodontic checkup to determine the best treatment plan for you. No matter which solution you choose, you’ll come away with straight teeth and a radiant smile.
