Orthodontics - Mississauga

Orthodontics concerns the treatment of malocclusions (improper bites) that may be the result of tooth irregularity, a disproportionate jaw, or both. Orthodontics, commonly the placement of braces on teeth with the purpose of straightening, also lend to strengthening the structural integrity of your overall smile.

Orthodontics can be implemented at any age, though the ideal time for placement of braces is usually between ten and fourteen years of age as the head and the mouth are still growing and therefore more susceptible to straightening out. The end result of orthodontic treatment is a beautiful smile, but it's vital to remember to keep teeth as clean as possible during active orthodontic treatment. Brushing after every meal and flossing daily are musts, as food can easily become trapped in the brackets or band of braces and possibly lead to decay and discoloration of the natural tooth.
