Tooth coloured fillings in Brampton YOUR FIRST VISIT

Following a review of your medical history, a few photographs will be taken followed by a brief oral exam, to help the orthodontist make a recommendation for treatment. Should orthodontic treatment be necessary, we will discuss the orthodontic process and what to expect every step of the way. Fees, financial options and insurance coverage will all be reviewed with you by our treatment coordinator. We are happy to send predeterminations to your insurance on your behalf so you can be informed on what your coverage is for orthodontic treatment.

The Right Age

Orthodontists can successfully correct most problems regardless of the patient’s age. But that does not mean that the orthodontic treatment starting age does not matter. In fact, it may play a significant role in the total time and expense required for the completion of the orthodontic treatment.

Early Intervention
An early exam allows Brampton Dentist, Dr. Omar, to determine how and when a child's particular jaw and/or dental problems should be corrected for the optimal results. This exam typically takes place between 7 to 9 years of age. If it is too early to do treatment, this exam will give an estimated timeline on when orthodontic treatment should be re-evaluated. Our philosophy on early treatment is to provide limited treatment if necessary to aid in proper growth and development and to help reduce the time needed for more extensive treatment in the future.

Adolescent Treatment
During adolescence is when most orthodontic problems are treated. During this phase, all or most permanent teeth have erupted and patients are at one of their most active phases of growth. Since the jaws are actively growing, it’s a perfect time for correction, giving them a beautiful smile as they mature into young adults.

Adult Treatment
Healthy teeth can be moved at any age; many of our patients are adults. We provide aesthetically pleasing options over the standard stainless braces to make the experience more subtle for the conscious adult. Invisible braces or Invisalign are available and often used. A consultation will help determine the best option for you. It’s never too late to have the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted!

Two-Phase Treatment
Two-Phase treatment guides the growth of the jaw bones that support the teeth. It is very useful in preventing a problem from developing, or to intercept and already developing problem.

COMMON PROBLEMS

Class II
Class II problems represent an abnormal bite relationship in which the upper jaw and teeth are located in front of the lower jaw and teeth. Class II patients usually exhibit a convex facial profile with a recessed chin. This gives the patient the appearance of having a recessed lower jaw, a protruding upper jaw, or both.

Class III
III problems are also primarily genetic in origin. In this instance, the lower jaw and teeth are positioned in front of the upper jaw and teeth. The lower jaw may appear to be excessively large, but in many cases the lack of upper jaw development is at fault. Several treatment options are available to correct a Class III problem.

Crowding
Crowding of the teeth is probably the most common orthodontic problem. Although many factors contribute to dental crowding, this problem typically stems from a discrepancy between the space in each jaw and the size of the teeth. Crowding is often one of several orthodontic problems. Crowding can be the cause or result of other problems, such as impacted teeth, retained teeth or teeth that do not naturally fall out. Crossbite of the front or rear teeth can also cause the teeth to become crowded.

Spacing
Spaces between teeth are another common problem associated with the need for orthodontic care. Like crowding, spacing may be related to a tooth-to-jaw size disharmony. Spacing may occur between the front and the back teeth. Tooth size discrepancies, such as smaller teeth or abnormally shaped teeth, can also create abnormal spacing.

Openbite
An openbite can occur with the front teeth, known as an anterior openbite or with the back teeth, referred to as a posterior openbite. An anterior openbite is the lack of vertical overlap of the front teeth and can usually be traced to jaw disharmony or habits such as thumb sucking or the posture of the tongue pushing against the front teeth. A posterior openbite is a problem in which the back teeth do not meet vertically, which keeps the jaw from functioning properly.

Excessive Gingival Display
Also known as a gummy smile, this orthodontic problem gives the appearance of excessive exposed gums on the upper arch. There are several treatment options for this problem. In severe cases, corrective jaw surgery may be necessary to actually shift the jaw upward vertically reducing the amount of exposure of the upper gum tissue.

Crossbite
A posterior crossbite will usually result from a narrow upper jaw or abnormally wide lower jaw. A narrow upper jaw will often force a patient to move the lower jaw forward or to the side when closing into a stable bite. When closed into this accommodating position, the lower teeth are located outside the upper teeth. A posterior crossbite can involve one side of the jaw, known as a unilateral crossbite, or both sides of the jaw, known as a bilateral crossbite.

Invisalign

 
Invisalign® straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. It's virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you're straightening your teeth.

Clearly Different

The Invisalign System combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with 100-year-old science of orthodontics. Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your orthodontist. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. Your first step is to visit our office to determine if Invisalign is right for you. After sending precise treatment instructions, Invisalign uses advanced computer technology to translate these instructions in a sequence of finely calibrated aligners - as few as 11 or as many as 48. For very mild dental malocclusions or teeth that have been shifted slightly in those patients that have previously had orthodontic treatment years ago, there are now shorter treatment plans ranging from 5-10 aligners on one or both arches. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually - week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Then you'll be smiling like you never have before!

 
If you want to learn more about Invisalign and how it works, please visit our Brampton Dental Office's Invisalign Homepage. To ensure the best possible results, only an orthodontist who has been trained and certified by Align Technology can diagnose and treat using Invisalign. Invisalign is not intended for children and is not appropriate for every adult. It should be emphasized that Invisalign is merely another tool that our office uses to develop beautiful smiles and that it must be used with the same orthodontic principles and goals as traditional braces. Therefore, only an orthodontist can best determine if this treatment is an effective option for you. To see if Invisalign can help you achieve the smile you've always wanted, contact our Brampton Dental Office to make an appointment.
