Orthodontics is one of many dental specialties that we offer at Kaydental in North York. Orthodontists diagnose and treat tooth alignment and jaw irregularities. Pre-teens, teens and adults can all benefit from orthodontic treatment.
Though orthodontic treatment can be effective at any age, the American Dental Association suggests that an orthodontic assessment should be performed around the age of seven. The earlier orthodontic treatment begins, the more quickly many problems can be successfully treated.
While there are many orthodontic conditions that can be fixed with treatment, some of the most common are esthetic concerns – even a single misaligned tooth can interfere with having a beautiful smile. Often, this tooth or multiple teeth can be realigned with orthodontic treatment.
Orthodontists can also work with other dental specialists such as, oral surgeons, to correct dental problems affecting the lips, jaw, or face.
When an orthodontic diagnosis has been made, orthodontic treatment options are presented to the patient. The following are the most common types of orthodontic treatments:
Interceptive orthodontics while a child's teeth and jaws are developing is an important option for guiding and often preventing more complex orthodontic conditions in the future.
