Why Orthodontics

Orthodontics is a subsidiary of dentistry concerned with straightening the teeth to improve their appearance. This specialty is devoted to building beautiful smiles by bringing teeth, lips, and jaws into proper alignment. Straight teeth function better, are easier to clean, and are more likely to last a lifetime.

Dealing with Crooked Tooth?


Because crowded and crooked teeth are difficult to clean and maintain, problems like tooth decay, gum disease and even tooth loss can occur. Other orthodontic problems include abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, inefficient chewing function, excessive stress on gum tissue and the bone that supports the teeth, and/or misalignment of the jaw joints. These, in turn, can lead to chronic headaches and face or neck pain.

For most people, a beautiful smile is the most obvious benefit of orthodontics. After your braces come off, you will feel more self-confident. Orthodontic treatment by your Toronto dentist, Dr. Jeremy Kurtz, can also be less costly than the additional care required for treating dental problems. This will, of course, depend on your individual case.

ORTHODONTICS

Braces for All Ages in Toronto


Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age, and adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile. One of every five patients in orthodontic treatment is over 21 years of age. Due to crooked teeth, adults may have experienced some breakdown or even a loss of teeth and the supporting bone structure. Thus, they may require periodontal care before, during and/or after orthodontic treatment. Bone loss can also limit the amount and direction of the necessary tooth movement.

INVISALIGN® TREATMENT CORRECTS ORTHODONTIC PROBLEMS

Invisalign® works in a way that is similar to brackets and arch-wires, moving the teeth with invisible aligners to an appropriate place by applying a controlled force. However, Invisalign® differs from other teeth straightening devices in that not only does it control the amount of force that is placed on the teeth, but it also controls the timing of the force application. Only certain teeth are allowed to move at different stages of the Invisalign® procedure. The movements that Invisalign® creates have been determined by an effective orthodontic treatment plan.
