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.
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 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.
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.
