How to choose an Orthodontist!

A winning smile can take you far in life and whether you are 7 or 77 it is important to choose an orthodontist who will provide patients with the smile they deserve. Orthodontists are certified specialists who help children, teens and adults achieve a straight, beautiful smile naturally by providing orthodontic solutions tailored to suit lifestyle and personal preferences. More than 1.3 million people begin orthodontic treatment each year, and one out of four are adults. Many would never consider traditional braces but are now happily and comfort- ably improving their smiles with Invisalign. Great smiles change lives and Invisalign has truly revolutionized orthodontics, opening the door for many adults to seek the smile they’ve always desired. Invisalign is the clear way to straighten teeth without braces, using aligners to allow people to maintain a professional image. Aligners are designed to meet patients’ needs, they are removable and virtually invisible, which means it is possible to straighten your teeth with- out anyone knowing. The aligners can be taken out to enjoy a meal and to brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth. There are no wires, metal or braces. Patients can always feel confident showing their smile, even while wearing aligners.

The Canadian Association of Orthodontists recommends that children visit an orthodontist for evaluation no later than age 7. If a child’s teeth are beginning to look crooked or unevenly spaced, it may be time to talk to an orthodontist about treatment. Fixing minor dental problems before they become major is one of the most significant investments you can make in a child’s health. According to the CAO, not treating a “bad bite” can contribute to tooth decay, gum disease, chewing difficulties, speech impairments, tooth loss and even dental injuries. Just like any other medical professional, orthodontists are not all the same. Trust your smile to an orthodontist who combines their own experience, innovative technology, advanced education and personal care to bring you all the treatment options available.
