Have you always been self-conscious of your smile because your teeth are not to the standard you would like them to be? Do you want a straighter smile?
At York Mills Dental, we offer orthodontic braces to help improve the alignment of your teeth as well as correct the alignment of your bite. The treatment is available to both children and adults who wish to improve their teeth. Braces can correct a variety of dental and cosmetic issues, such as:
Using brackets, wires, and elastics, braces are designed to apply pressure which causes your teeth to move. As your teeth are shifting, bone forms to create support for the new alignment. By the end of the procedure, you will notice that your teeth and bite are now straighter.
The time required for braces varies between patients, depending on the condition of your teeth. On average, the procedure usually takes 2-3 years. After braces are removed, most patients will need to wear a retained all the time for the first six months, then only during sleep for the next few years.
Caring for your teeth while wearing braces is different than when you do not have braces. It is important to maintain dental habits like brushing and flossing regularly. Furthermore, Dr. Ching recommend avoiding food that can potentially damage your braces like sticky or hard food. You are also required to attend regular dental check-ups to see how your teeth have improved and for readjustments.
Feel confident with a healthier and straighter smile today! Contact our York Mills Dental office in North Toronto to schedule a consultation. Dr. Ching will be glad to discuss the treatment plan, duration and cost of braces with you.
