Its your turn to smile!

Many people are surprised to learn that healthy teeth can be straightened at any age.  Today, a growing number of adults are investing in themselves.  In fact, the Canadian Association of Orthodontists reports that more than one of every four Canadian orthodontic patients are age 21 or older.

While an attractive smile is the main reason more adults are wearing braces, others choose to address their orthodontic problems in order to:

  1. Prevent or improve periodontal problems (gum disease)

  2. Prevent or reduce further bone loss around teeth (recession)

  3. Facilitate restoration of missing teeth by their dentist, including implants, bridges, crowns and veneers

  4. Improve the function of their teeth, including biting, chewing and speaking

  5. Prevent abnormal wear of teeth

  6. Address temporomandibular joint pain (jaw pain)

  7. Manage sleep apnea

  8. Improve self-confidence and self-esteem

Today, modern materials and techniques allow treatment to progress quicker and more comfortably.  In addition, aesthetic treatment options are available so braces don’t need to show!
