Orthodontics at New Gisborne, Gisborne, Macedon & Riddells Creek

Crooked teeth and other mouth issues are not simply an aesthetic concern. Dental problems can interfere with oral health that can lead to a future filled with dental problems. Our team of dentists at New Gisborne Dental House are experienced with orthodontics. We can perform a dental checkup, complete a diagnosis, and work with our patients to straighten or repair their teeth and enhance their smile.

What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics Resized
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that is concerned with diagnosing and treating dental and facial irregularities or problems. While the main focus may be on straightening teeth with braces, there are other areas of orthodontics that can help improve oral health, such as correcting jaw growth problems and bite issues.

Orthodontic treatments improve the appearance and function of teeth, while dental health and overall wellbeing are also affected. Crooked teeth and jaw problems can interfere with the way you speak, or they can make chewing food uncomfortable. Bite problems can prematurely wear tooth enamel, leading to future issues due to excess stress on gum tissue and surrounding bone. And crooked teeth can be difficult to clean, as pockets of bacteria and decay may be overlooked, leading to gum disease or other oral health issues.

Orthodontic Solutions

Orthodontic treatment has benefits that affect all areas of our lives, which is why our philosophy at New Gisborne Dental House is that all children ages 8-9 should be examined for potential dental problems. This provides an opportunity for early intervention, especially since bones are easier to properly move around and shape from ages 11 to 16 years.
But orthodontics is not just for children. Anyone can benefit from orthodontics with solutions including undetectable ceramic braces or clear aligner trays like Invisalign. Modern advances in dentistry allows us to find solutions for dental issues at any age, including:
\
Missing teeth
\
Extra teeth
\
Overbites and Underbites
\
Misaligned teeth
\
Incorrect jawbone position
\
Jaw joint or hinge problems
If you are in need of orthodontics, our experienced dentists will work with you to customize a treatment plan for your dental health goals.

Orthodontics at the Dental House

 
We offer various orthodontic solutions to fit many patient concerns, such as:

Braces

Modern braces are made of either porcelain or stainless steel. They may be placed on all teeth, only the front teeth, or maybe lingual braces that are placed only on the back teeth. These types of braces are secured with wires and brackets to control movement, which elastic bands and springs help move teeth into their proper position.

Invisalign

Invisalign is an alternative to braces and consists of wearing a series of clear aligner trays that each move teeth into their ideal position. They are removable for eating yet still must be worn at least 22 hours each day.

Headgear

Headgear refers to an appliance that is worn on the outside of the mouth in conjunction with braces to correct more severe bite and jaw alignment issues.

Palatal Expansion

Palatal expansion is a technique used to widen the upper jaw to create more room for the upper row of teeth. In this case, a palatal expander is used to help the top and bottom teeth fit together more comfortably and is mainly used for younger patients.

Jaw Surgery

This is a dental solution for adult patients who experience more severe cases of jaw misalignment and allows us to reposition the bones to correct a patient’s bite.

Benefits of Orthodontics

Some believe that our smile is a window to our health, which may have some truth to it. Oral health is an important part of overall health and wellness, and we take that seriously. Orthodontics is an important set of dental solutions that we can use to help you maintain or regain your oral health, and it can help children ward off future dental issues. Some of the benefits of orthodontics include:
Improved bite for greater comfort
Properly aligned teeth are easier to clean
Reduce tongue and cheek biting due to crooked teeth
Less risk of chipped teeth due to misaligned teeth
Easier to chew and speak with properly aligned teeth
Lower risk for gum disease with straight teeth that are easier to clean
Properly aligned teeth reduce the risk of abnormal wearing of tooth enamel
Lower risk of head, face, and neck pain due to jaw joint issues or bite misalignment
