Orthodontics, also called dental braces, are used to straighten crooked teeth and correct bite problems. At R Dentists, we handle most orthodontic cases right here in our Mississauga office. In extremely complex cases, we refer patients to a specialist for appropriate treatment.
Crooked teeth or a noticeable overbite may be embarrassing. However, aesthetics is not the only reason to treat orthodontic problems.
Braces help avoid or correct problems as the oral structure is developing. With age, the bone structure becomes denser. Therefore, we monitor orthodontic development of our young patients very closely. If we detect any problems, we strongly recommend braces, which can help your child avoid a lifetime of oral health problems.
Although braces are more effective for children, it is never too late to improve your smile. A growing number of orthodontic patients are adults. In some cases, adults wear braces to treat severe alignment issues. However, many people seek orthodontic treatment for cosmetic reasons. In some cases, these cosmetic goals can be accomplished without braces, by using treatments such as porcelain veneers to cover crooked teeth or tooth bonding to close gaps.
