Orthodontics Treatment in Dorval, QC H9S 3H6

It is not uncommon to have improperly positioned teeth or jaws. To diagnose and correct these issues, and to prevent misalignment, orthodontic treatment is usually necessary. At Dorval Dental Clinic, we provide orthodontic treatment in Dorval to any of our patients that may need it.

Risks of Improperly Placed Teeth

Teeth that do not fit together properly can create stress on the chewing muscles, potentially resulting in conditions such as TMJ disorder, headaches, and neck, shoulder, or back pain. They can also be more difficult to clean thoroughly, which puts them at a higher risk for developing cavities or periodontal (gum) disease. To achieve not only a more attractive smile, but a healthier mouth, orthodontic treatment is available in several forms.

Orthodontic Issues

Orthodontic treatment can be used to treat overbite, underbite, crossbite, open bite, misplaced midline, gaps in teeth, or crowding in teeth. Although it is commonly associated with teens, adults can also use the treatment to address alignment issues.

Orthodontic Treatment

The type of orthodontic treatment selected to treat your alignment issue depends on your needs and preferences. Your orthodontist at Dorval Dental Clinic will evaluate the current position of the teeth and overall oral health to help determine the most suitable treatment for you.

  • Traditional braces: a system of metal brackets and wires that apply a gentle but constant pressure on the teeth to shift them into a new position. Metal braces are strong and do not stain teeth. Though it may appear cumbersome, it is a popular choice.
  • Clear (ceramic) braces: made with a clear synthetic material and “tooth-colored” ceramic. They work in the same way as traditional braces, but are less visible and can be more comfortable. However, they are more susceptible to discoloration and staining.
  • Invisalign®: a system of clear, custom-made aligners that are worn on the teeth for the majority of the day to change the position of the teeth. They are practically invisible and the most comfortable orthodontic treatment option.

If you are considering orthodontic treatment in Dorval, make an appointment at Dorval Dental Clinic for a consultation and to find the best treatment for you or your children.
