Orthodontics & Functional Orthopedics in Richmond Hill Ontario

Crooked teeth can compromise the health and appearance of your smile. Orthodontics can correct these issues and give you the flawless straight smile that you've always wanted. Tooth misalignment can cause a number of issues, such as being difficult to properly to brush and clean. In addition, crooked teeth place pressure on adjacent teeth which can lead to pain and further misalignment. However, probably the biggest drawback of crooked teeth is that it ruins the beauty of your smile. 

Bamboo Dental offers comprehensive orthodontic & orthopedic treatments as a way to correct tooth misalignment and bite problems and improve the appearance of your smile. Orthodontic treatment can correct a number of dental issues such as overbites, underbites, cross bites, overcrowding, and spacing problems.

During your in-depth examination, your dentist will check the position of your teeth and review your dental history to determine if you need orthodontic treatment. Your dentist will use special technology, such as digital X-rays and an intra oral camera, to get a complete overview of your oral tissues. Depending on your case, you may start off with an orthopedic surgeon who uses short-term removable oral appliances to promote healthy tooth growth and development. The advantages of orthopedics are that it promotes healthy tooth and bite development without needing to use metal braces. In addition, since these oral appliances, such as removable retainers, can be removed at any time, it makes chewing, brushing, and flossing easier.

The next step of orthodontic treatment is orthodontics which is when braces are bonded to your teeth to shift them into perfect position. Unlike orthopedics, braces are semi-permanent, meaning that they can only be adjusted or removed by your dentist. Since they are bonded to your teeth, it gives the dentist more control to create the perfect smile that you desire.

Depending on your case, orthodontic treatment can last for several years or longer. However, after your braces are removed, you will still likely have to wear retainers to maintain your healthy straight smile.
