Orthodontic care in Beaconsfield
Malocclusion, crooked teeth, narrow palate, open-bite, overcrowding; there are many reasons to seek an orthodontic consultation. At Centre Dentaire Olympique, an orthodontics specialist provides quality treatment with state-of-the-art technology.
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that encompasses the diagnosis and treatment of dentofacial irregularities or malocclusions. If you or your child displays signs of malocclusion, your dentist will refer you for an orthodontic consultation.
Orthodontic treatment lasts one to three years on average. The orthodontist orchestrates the entire procedure: he selects and adjusts devices so that you can achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.
Types of appliances used
- Dental retainer
- Lingual wire
- Expansion appliance
During your first visit, the orthodontics specialist will assess your oral health and recommend the most suitable treatment. The subsequent visits will be dedicated to fitting and adjusting the devices and keeping track of tooth movement.
A well-known orthodontic fix, traditional braces can move teeth in three different directions to achieve proper alignment. Braces consist of the following components: the brackets (metal or tooth-coloured ceramic for greater discretion), arch wires, and ligatures that tie the arch wires to each bracket. Elastics attach to brackets and apply pressure to move teeth into position. They make orthodontic treatment more precise and less invasive.
One of the main concerns patients have about metal braces is their aesthetic impact on the smile. For adults, especially, the prospect of wearing unflattering metal braces for an extended period of time can be very daunting. Invisalign® uses near-invisible aligners to rapidly straighten your teeth without metal braces.
Invisalign® treatment consists of a series of aligning trays. The dentist changes the trays on a regular basis to fit the new tooth configuration. In addition to the reduced visual impact, Invisalign® aligning trays can be temporarily removed for important occasions—meaning that treatment duration is patient-controlled. A great number of people report complete satisfaction with both Invisalign® treatment and its excellent results.
