Is your child around the age of 7 and suffering from a dental crossbite? At Woodbridge Kids Dentistry and Orthodontics we have a highly skilled Orthodontist who is willing to treat your child’s needs and improve their self-esteem! Don’t wait! Early treatment improves speech development, breaks harmful oral habits and decreases the risk of breaking front teeth. Most importantly it can prevent the need for extractions in future orthodontic treatment.
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that a child first visit an orthodontist at the age of 7. The first phase of treatment, if it is necessary, can help prevent a problem from occurring, intercept a developing problem, or guide the growth of the jaw bones that support the teeth. By seeing an orthodontist early, treatment can be timed based on stages of predictable dental development. This helps our orthodontist ensure the greatest potential for improvement and correction of the patient’s bite.
If your child has not had their first orthodontic appointment yet, do not hesitate to contact our office today at (905) 264-1543!
The Process and Your Progress
Phase 1 of treatment offers functional benefits, enabling patients to bite and chew more effectively. Early treatment can improve speech and breathing problems and may reduce the risk of breaking front teeth.
Early orthodontic treatment at Woodbridge Kids Dentistry assists in breaking harmful oral habits and can correct teeth in cross bite. For most patients, the most notable improvement after early treatment is their increased self-esteem!
Although braces for kids may occasionally involve 2 phases of treatment, in certain cases it can help make room for the permanent teeth to grow in before that opportunity no longer exists.
Ceramic (Clear) Brackets
Avoiding orthodontic treatment because you can’t stand the thought of wearing metal braces? Our office recommends Radiance Plus brackets- a clear, invisible alternative to conventional braces. Typically, adjustments to ceramic brackets are done every 4-6 weeks.
Radiance Plus is the clearest ceramic bracket available, making it more aesthetic than other ceramic systems currently on the market.
Each Radiance Plus bracket is created from a single crystal of pure grown sapphire- one of the hardest materials in nature, second only to diamond! The crystal is treated and polished into a remarkably strong and beautiful bracket that’s virtually invisible when bonded to the teeth.
If you are interested in our Radiance Plus ceramic brackets, please ask to see our clear brackets next time you are in the office… you will be amazed!
With the new innovation of Invisalign, wearing braces is easy! Invisalign is an alternative to braces that offers improved comfort and the freedom to remove the aligners easily when eating, brushing and for important events!
Invisalign aligners are smooth, custom-made, clear plastic trays that most people don’t even know you are wearing. As the position of your teeth changes and your smile improves, it is recommended that you change aligners regularly, wearing them for 20-22 hours each day.
Invisalign aligners are so comfortable and thin that you can continue to enjoy playing your favourite sports and musical instruments. Call us today at (905) 264-1543 we look forward to seeing you soon!
