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.
At Brimley Dental Centre, we are able to assist with any orthodontic need you may have. The best way to get started is to book an appointment with our office to set up a consultation. Call us at (416) 293-8063 to schedule an appointment today.
