Orthodontic care for your entire family is available. Whether you would like to learn about Invisalign, braces, or have other questions related to improper positioning of teeth, we’d be pleased to help. Orthodontics primary function is to restore malocclusions, or improper bites. Today, more children and adults are treating misaligned teeth so we specialize in orthodontics for the entire family. Once diagnosed, we will formulate a treatment plan based on your needs and preferences.
Dental braces are apparatus the span the teeth to align and straighten them while restoring a proper bite and jaw alignment. In some cases, braces are used primarily for cosmetic straightening if the bite is deemed adequate. Metal braces are less commonly used today as clear, ceramic or white braces are more aesthetically pleasing for most patients.
Invisalign is a cosmetically preferential alternative to traditional braces due to their transparency. Invisalign works a little differently as they involve a series of aligners that are switched out in incremental steps as teeth alignment progresses. Yes, Invisalign is available at Reflections Dental Oakville! In sum, a scanned model of the patient’s teeth are taken as the basis for creating molds that serve as the incremental pieces the patient wears. Each mold takes them through corrective stages that eventually achieve the desired end results.
Think of Invisalign as braces, without the braces. They are more comfortable, almost unnoticeable and largely achieve the same results as braces. Orthodontic treatment has come a long way with this approach to addressing misalignment of a bite or incorrect spacing between teeth.
