Orthodontics

Achieve a straighter smile

Adults often ask if they can straighten their teeth and the answer is yes, teeth can be straightened at any age. With our range of orthodontic treatments, you can achieve healthy straight teeth. Having straight teeth not only looks great but it also has oral health benefits. At Dental on York, we have helped many patients achieve their dream smile. 

What is orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a specialised area of dentistry that addresses the diagnosis, prevention and correction of misaligned teeth and jaws. Orthodontics are used in both general and cosmetic dentistry. With orthodontic treatments we are able to:

  • Fix overcrowding
  • Realign teeth
  • Straighten teeth
  • Remove gaps between teeth

The benefits go beyond aesthetics, orthodontic treatment can actually improve the health of your gums and your teeth. Overcrowded and crooked teeth are harder to clean and can put you at a greater risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Misaligned bites can cause headaches and pains in your neck, they can also put you at greater risk of injury. Orthodontics can help to fix these issues. 

Types of orthodontic treatment

At Dental on York, we offer both braces and Invisalign. These treatments have come a long way in the past decade and it’s now easier than ever to achieve straighter teeth. Traditional braces remain a popular choice for straightening teeth. They are the most affordable style of orthodontic treatment. Wire brackets are attached to your teeth with wires threaded between. These wires are tightened throughout the course of your treatment to move your teeth into their optimal position.

Invisalign is a popular choice among adults who want to be a little discreet. Invisalign involves sets of clear trays that are custom-made. These trays are worn all the time except when eating or drinking. They are changed every few weeks as your teeth move. Both braces and Invisalign can take anywhere from six months to a few years to straighten your teeth. The length of time depends on each individual circumstance.
