Orthodontic treatment 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 Clear Correct clear aligners 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 under bites — are corrected, it’s much more comfortable to chew, talk and even breathe!
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.
It’s important to have any alignment issues corrected before we lose the growth opportunity to cost-effectively correct orthodontic concerns. Bring your child for an orthodontic assessment after age 10, which is the start of their growth. Children’s teeth and jaws respond readily to treatment so age 10 is the ideal age to correct alignment issues. Often treatments are much easier on the patient if the problem is caught while the jaw is still growing with the top 3 issues
