Orthodontics & Clear Aligners Scarborough

Orthodontic treatment helps with aligning teeth and jaws that are not positioned correctly. It is often thought of as a cosmetic procedure, but orthodontic treatment not only improves the look of your smile but also improves your oral health as well.

Some of the challenges associated with improperly aligned teeth include:

  • Difficulty in keeping teeth clean
  • Higher risk of premature tooth loss and decay
  • Higher risk of periodontal disease
  • Additional stress on the muscles operating your mouth and jaw, causing head, neck, back, and shoulder pain.

If you are not happy with the way your teeth look or work, orthodontic treatment may help.

Some of the signs that you may be a candidate for orthodontic treatment may include having:

  • An overbite
  • An underbite
  • A crossbite
  • An open bite
  • A misplaced midline
  • Spacing in your teeth
  • Crowding of your teeth

Although common with teens, orthodontic treatment is for everyone! Many adults choose to get orthodontic treatment because they want to improve their smiles, or reduce pain and inflammation in their mouth and jaw. At Brimley Dental Centre, we are happy to speak with our adult patients on whether or not there is an orthodontic option for them.

There are some unique cases where it makes the most sense to begin orthodontic treatment prior to all permanent teeth coming in (adult teeth). Parents can bring your pre-teens to see us for an assessment if you are concerned about crooked teeth or the effects of bad habits such as thumb sucking to see if your child needs orthodontic treatment.


Aligners are becoming more popular today and are a common alternative for adult braces. Aligners are used in a similar manner to how braces work, but are thin, clear trays unlike the complex system of wires and metal. They are essentially invisible to others and are easily removed for activities such as eating, flossing, and brushing your teeth.
