Do I Need Orthodontics?

From dental gaps to overbites, orthodontic issues can cause jaw pain and increase your chances of developing tooth decay. Orthodontics is a dental specialty that's aimed at aligning your bite and straightening your teeth. At Newtonbrook Dentistry, we know how challenging it can be to decide if orthodontics is right for you. As such, treatment is ideal for patients as young as seven years old.

Some of the signs that you or a loved one may need orthodontic intervention include:

  • Your teeth are visibly crooked or crowded
  • You have difficulty flossing and brushing around your teeth
  • You frequently bite your tongue or cut it on your teeth
  • Your teeth don't properly close when your mouth is at rest
  • You have difficulty pronouncing certain words because of your tongue's position

Our Orthodontic Options for Teens & Adults

It's never too late to straighten your smile. Our practice has spent years improving our orthodontic offerings to meet the needs of teens and adults. When you visit our practice for the first time, we'll conduct a detailed oral exam that looks at your teeth, gums, and jawbones. For teens, our team will closely monitor their smiles and verify that their adult teeth safely erupt. Many of our orthodontic options for teens and adults focus on convenience and discretion. For example, ceramic braces, SureSmile clear braces, and SPEED™ metal braces all blend in with your smile and typically take less time to complete treatment. Our team is also more than happy to answer any questions you may have about our orthodontic treatment selections.

Catering to the Orthodontic Needs of Kids

At Newtonbrook Dentistry, we have extensive experience providing North York orthodontic services to children. By intervening at a young age and giving your child's smile close orthodontic attention, we help ensure that their smile develops properly while avoiding potential complications. Depending on your child's needs, our office offers:

  • Expanders: Palate expanders are special oral appliances that are used to widen or narrow your child's upper jaws. Typically made of metal, expanders fit to the roof of the mouth and gradually move both halves of the upper jaws. Expanders are ideal for preparing your child's smile for braces or other orthodontic solutions.
  • Spacers: Dr. Safari may determine that your child's smile doesn't have enough room for brackets and recommend spacers. Orthodontic spacers are small elastic or metal separators that sit between your child's teeth to create gaps. Normally, children are required to wear spacers between one and two weeks.
  • Phase 1 & 2 Orthodontics: Our practice is proud to offer two-phase orthodontic treatment for children. This two-phase system focuses on straightening your child's teeth while creating a functional bite. Phase 1 orthodontic treatment helps make room for adult teeth and may include headgear, specialized retainers, or other appliances. Phase 2 orthodontics consists of traditional metal braces placed over your child's upper and lower teeth.
  • Retainers: Once your child's orthodontic treatment is complete, there's still the risk of their teeth shifting out of place over time. That's why we provide quality retainers to help keep their newly straightened smile intact. Retainers are made of various materials like metal and plastic and are typically worn by your child at night to keep pressure on their teeth and prevent shifting.
