The benefits of orthodontic treatment include a healthier mouth, a more pleasing appearance, and teeth that are more likely to last a lifetime.
How do I know if I need orthodontics?
There are many functional and aesthetic reasons to consider orthodontics. When you come in for a consultation, we will discuss your concerns, as well as complete an examination to assess candidacy for orthodontic treatment.
When you hear the word braces, you most likely think of those bulky metal brackets with wires. Modern dental brackets are now smaller, less noticeable, and just as effective as the older bulkier ones. They’re easier to keep clean and much more comfortable.
If you’re looking for conventional brackets, we also offer clear brackets that tend to be more popular among our adult patients. These brackets are designed to combine conventional orthodontics with discretion.
Clear Aligners - Invisalign
Invisalign uses a series of custom made trays to gradually shift your teeth to their ideal positions. These transparent trays fit snugly against your teeth and are removable so you can take them out to eat what you want, brush and floss like normal, and keep your trays fresh and clean.
We can place brace brackets on the inside of your teeth. In many circumstances, this method works just as well as conventional braces, is as discreet as clear aligners and saves the insides of your cheeks from discomfort. Lingual braces are more popular among adults but are also a favourite for teens in sports or band.

Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.
