ORTHODONTICS IN RICHMOND HILL & THORNHILL


Orthodontics Richmond HillThe braces that are used consist of a steel band which goes around each individual tooth like a ring. The wire that pulls the teeth into line is attached to a small bracket that is on the front of the steel bands. You might remember what this looked like - a mouth full of metal!

Orthodontics has come a long way!

The metal bands have been replaced with brackets that are bonded directly to the front of the teeth. These brackets are much smaller, less noticeable and more comfortable. More and more of our Orthodontic cases are adults!

It's amazing how far your teeth can be moved by orthodontic procedures. Your bone reacts to the tension created by the braces by creating special cells on each side of the tooth. These cells allow the tooth to shift in the bone while repairing the bone from where the tooth originally was.

Orthodontics for Kids Some children have naturally straight teeth, others are not so lucky. The size of your child's teeth and how they fit together are inherited traits. So are 'malocclusions'. Malocclusion is the dental term that literally means 'bad bite'. Orthodontics corrects these malocclusions to bring your child's teeth into proper alignment.

There are a number of different malocclusions. Dr. Bastone will keep a close eye on your child's oral development to make sure there is room for their healthy and beautiful smile to grow.

Orthodontics Richmond Hill If your child requires orthodontic treatments we will recommend starting treatment between the ages of 10 and 14. At this age, the mouth is still developing and the teeth can easily be moved. Early treatment can prevent more extensive and costly treatment later when your child becomes an adult.

Correcting a bite alignment through orthodontic treatment can improve dental health, boosting self-confidence and creating a terrific looking smile.

Dr. Bastone would be pleased to talk to you about the benefits of orthodontics next time you are in to see us. We serve the Maple, Thornhill, Richmond Hill and surrounding areas and would love to help you!
