Everyone deserves a beautiful smile. Overbites, overcrowded teeth, and other problems can be detrimental to the functioning bite and long-term oral health.

Our certified specialists in Orthodontics, at PDG Dental, can evaluate when to begin orthodontic treatment to give your child the most beautiful and healthy smile for the rest of their life.

Early or Phase 1 Orthodontic Treatment

It’s recommended that children see an orthodontist for their first Orthodontic around the age of 7. Focusing on structural jaw issues like underbites and overbites, crowding or protruding teeth are easier to correct at a younger age while children are still growing.  This is considered “phase 1” or “early treatment.” Proactive early treatment can make phase 2 treatment more predictable, easier to complete, and potentially shorter in length.

Full or Phase 2 Orthodontic Treatment

This stage of treatment usually occurs when all the permanent teeth (except wisdom teeth) are present in the mouth. There are a few options available to consider for this stage: Metal or clear braces and Invisalign. There may be other appliances required depending on your needs.

Traditional Metal Braces

Braces are attached to the teeth via archwires and elastics that apply light, steady, and continuous pressure to your teeth in order to slowly and safely straighten them. We use Dentsply GAC In-Ovation Systems, offering metal and clear braces. Traditional metal braces are the most economical option, best for partial and full orthodontic treatment, and can be personalized with coloured bands to make it more exciting for kids.

Clear Braces

Clear braces work similarly to metal braces, in their precision, with the added aesthetic benefit of being significantly less noticeable than metal ones.

Invisalign

Invisalign, a more modern way of straightening teeth without the use of wires or metal brackets! The nearly invisible plastic mouth guard-like aligners are custom made to gradually and gently shift teeth into their desired place. These aligners are easily removable and allow the user to eat and drink whatever they want. It is a perfect choice for those who want to achieve a great smile with the least noticeable solution. Invisalign is more applicable for teen or adult treatment plans as they require more responsibility from the patient to ensure consistency of use.
