Orthodontic treatment is good for your health, and it improves the look of your smile by straightening your teeth. It’s also amazing how even a minor correction can make a huge difference to your comfort and wellbeing.
At Aponia Dental, we’re proud to offer a wide range of orthodontic treatments, including braces, retainers, and Incognito™ Hidden Braces in North Edmonton, Alberta.
We’re always so pleased when we can improve a patient’s comfort with orthodontics. When jaw discrepancies -- such as overbites and underbites -- are corrected, it’s much more comfortable to chew, talk and even breathe! When the bones and tissue that support the teeth experience less stress, the risk of gum and bone deterioration -- the leading cause of adult tooth loss -- is significantly minimized.
Orthodontic treatment can resolve cosmetic, functional, and physiological issues -- as well as improving your comfort and confidence.
Here are just a few of the ways orthodontics in North Edmonton could help you:
Your upper teeth are designed to slightly overlap your lower teeth, so they can bite together in proper occlusion. If your jaws and teeth are naturally too far forward or too far back, you may have a bite problem. Bite problems can cause painful damage to your teeth if left untreated. Talk to us about how orthodontics can improve your bite.
When your teeth are properly aligned, they form a U-shaped arch. This makes it easy to brush them and floss between each one. If your teeth are crowded together, it makes it difficult to clean them properly, and that puts them at risk for decay. Some people are self-conscious about having crowded teeth, and wish their smile was properly aligned. Talk to us today about how orthodontics can correct crowded teeth.
If you have spaces between your teeth, the gaps can cause problems with your alignment and occlusion (bite). Spaces can be corrected with the help of orthodontics. When you're missing a tooth, the surrounding teeth slowly shift their position in an attempt to fill the gap. After losing a baby tooth, it's important to allow room for an adult tooth to grown in. Talk to us today about how orthodontic appliances can help maintain that space.
Orthodontic treatment can also help if you have difficulty chewing or swallowing, speech problems, headaches, facial or neck pain, jaw popping, jaw locking, jaw clicking, or excessive wear of teeth.
We offer a wide range of orthodontics at Aponia Dental, including a new and exciting development, Incognito Hidden Braces! How does Incognito™ work? Well, they are braces hidden behind your teeth -- custom-made to fit your teeth. They work just like traditional braces, but they are completely invisible! Visit their website to find out more!
Whether you choose traditional metal braces or the incredible Incognito™ Hidden Braces, the team at Aponia Dental is ready to help you begin your smile transformation. We are often asked about the ideal age for orthodontic treatment, but the reality is that braces aren't just for children and teenagers. More and more of our adult patients are choosing orthodontics to give themselves a more attractive, comfortable smile.
