We welcome patients from all ages to come in for an orthodontic consultation at Woodstock Dental Centre, your Woodstock dentist. The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that children get an orthodontic evaluation no later than age 7.
Traditional Braces offered at your Woodstock Dentist
Braces to give you a million dollar smile!
At Woodstock Dental Centre our preferred orthodontic treatment is Invisalign. When Invisalign is not an option, we resort to traditional braces.
Orthodontic treatment may be necessary if you suffer from any of the following:
- Breathing or swallowing problems
- Deep Overbite
- Disfiguring of the face & mouth
- Missing or extra teeth
- Overjet (protruding upper teeth)
Orthodontic treatment Process by your Woodstock Dentist
1. Planning Phase
Your first couple of visits to Woodstock Dental Centre will include a medical and dental history evaluation, and x-rays of the teeth and jaws among other diagnostic tools. After careful planning, our highly skilled North York dentist, Dr. David Michaels will design and apply braces that coincide with the treatment plan in effect for you.
2. Active Phase
The active treatment phase involves visiting Dr. Michaels at our Woodstock dental office on a regular basis for adjustments and following specific treatment requirements to ensure successful results. A monthly appointment is usually required.
3. Retention Phase
When treatment is completed, the braces and/or appliances are removed and a new appliance/retainer is made for you. Sometimes, retainers are removable and sometimes they are fixed by a wire cemented on the inside of your teeth.
Invisalign® clear aligners offered at your Woodstock Dentist
When correcting cosmetic, functional, and or temporomandibular (TM) joint issues, orthodontics is usually the first choice of treatment. Yet, many avoid such treatment due to the stigma of wearing traditional wire-and-post braces. Nearly translucent, Invisalign® orthodontics can help avoid these anxieties.
Invisalign® consists of custom-moulded, clear plastic aligners that gradually straighten the teeth. Over the course of the treatment, a new Invisalign® aligner is placed every two weeks until the desired smile is achieved.
Advantages of Invisalign guaranteed by your Woodstock dentist:
- Invisalign® aligners are clear
- Invisalign® is removable
- Invisalign® allows you to brush and floss normally
- Invisalign® results are amazing!
Common problems that Invisalign addresses:
- Teeth Crowding
- Spacing between your teeth
