Most people think of braces and retainers as nothing more than a step towards a better smile, but that’s simply untrue. Depending on the type and severity, issues with the alignment of the teeth can cause serious health problems, including diseases affecting the digestive system and even the heart. Orthodontic treatment could mean avoiding significant health struggles in the future.
The Markham Dental Clinic team takes your oral health seriously, which is why we work with patients of all ages to come up with an effective and efficient orthodontic treatment plan that is unique to them.
Orthodontic treatments are all designed to gently correct the alignment of the teeth through precisely-applied pressure. Over time, this pressure can shift teeth into the proper position, retrain facial muscles, and affect the jaw’s growth. Dentists use a wide variety of dental appliances to achieve the right alignment.
The only person who is qualified to tell you whether you need orthodontic treatment is your dentist. However, many patients with these conditions may benefit from a customized orthodontic treatment plan:
