When you have crooked or crowded teeth, or even a misaligned jaw, orthodontic treatment can help straighten or move them into the right position. This will dramatically improve your appearance and the way your teeth bite together, and make it easier for you to maintain oral hygiene.
At Garden Dental & Orthodontics, we provide our patients in Spruce Grove Alberta and the surrounding Stony Plain and Parkland County areas with orthodontic treatment so your mouth can look and function better. This treatment usually entails wearing removable or fixed braces, along with tooth extraction and perhaps some jaw surgery.
When you come to our clinic, our orthodontists will assess your teeth and mouth to identify whether orthodontic appliances will be beneficial to you. Depending on the results of the first consultation, which will include a full dental and medical history assessment, a clinical exam, special x-rays, and models of the damaged teeth, we will create an appropriate treatment plan for your case, or recommend another treatment option.
Some of the cases that can be treated with braces or orthodontics include:
There are many types of fixed and removable appliances that can be applied in orthodontic treatment to help move misaligned/crooked teeth, retrain muscles, and influence the growth of your jaws. These orthodontic devices work by exerting a continuous but gentle pressure on your teeth and jaws for a period of between 6 and 24 months.
Removable appliances include:
Crooked teeth and misaligned jaws make it harder to maintain oral hygiene, increasing the risk of tooth loss due to decay and periodontal disease. Additionally, misaligned teeth and jaws exert more pressure on the chewing muscles, which can lead to headaches, shoulder, neck and back pain, and TMJ syndrome. If you’re not confident about your smile, this could also negatively impact your social and career life.
Fortunately, our skilled and experienced staff can help you fix this. Some of the reasons to consider orthodontic treatment include:
