Orthodontics

Orthodontic treatment helps straighten your teeth in order to have a better aesthetic look and function in the mouth. ‘’Braces’’ are used to gently realign your teeth in the proper positioning.

Why you may need ‘‘Braces’’?

The positioning of your teeth and jaw can have a strong effect on your bite. The bite consists of the top and bottom teeth coming together. When the bite doesn’t align properly, this is called ‘’malocclusion’’ or a bad bite. This can make it hard to chew some food and may cause some teeth to wear down over time. Your exposed teeth are more susceptible to getting chipped or broken.

Different types of bad bites are:

  • Overjet
  • Overbite
  • Open bite
  • Crossbite

Who will perform this procedure?

At Carriage Place Dental Centre, we will begin by identifying if ‘’Braces’’ are right for you and if so will refer you to an Orthodontist. An orthodontist is a dental specialist that deals with preventing and correcting ‘’malocclusions”.

However for minor cases, Carriage Place Dental Centre offers Simpli 5 to help realign minor tooth movement.
