The purpose of orthodontic treatment is to help you eat and speak more easily. Both teeth and jaw corrections are involved in orthodontics. It allows your teeth and jaw to function properly and leaves you with a perfect smile. Improving your bite, or how your upper and lower teeth come together, improves speech and chewing. Also, misaligned teeth are harder to clean and are subject to excessive wear and tear which may require more extensive dental procedures in the future.
Orthodontic care prioritizes oral health and good function. At Waterloo West Dentistry, our caring orthodontists offer a range of services to help you. Orthodontists are specialists, with additional, specialty dental school requirements, for the expert level of care required. Our staff goes above and beyond, providing a friendly, relaxed atmosphere and services for our orthodontic work and related procedures.
Orthodontists recommend children get an orthodontic check-up by 7. This allows any concerns about your child's jaw growth or teeth positioning to be corrected earlier or prevented. Interceptive treatments aim to address orthodontic problems early in life to prevent them from becoming more complex. Early treatment can more easily correct crossbites, underbites, extreme crowding, and many other orthodontic issues.
