Maintaining good oral hygiene is a stepping stone for strong, healthy teeth. Sometimes, however, it’s simply not enough to ensure great dental care.
It is for this reason that we have different procedures dedicated to various types of dental issues.
Orthodontics—Greek for “straight, proper or perfect teeth”—caters to the straightening of your teeth for better positioning, and painless biting and chewing.
As such, orthodontic dentistry focuses on aligning your teeth when the mouth is closed—a condition generally known as malocclusion. A person who specializes in this field of dentistry is known as an orthodontist. He or she specializes in controlling the shape and development of the jaw, as well as various areas of facial growth (also known as dentofacial orthopedics).
In order to qualify for orthodontic treatment, you must visit a qualified orthodontist who can study the positioning of your teeth, evaluate your dental history and examine your X-rays and model plasters to perform a sound diagnosis.
Based on the findings, he or she may then be able to identify your dental problem and determine which orthodontic treatment would be most appropriate for you.
At Waterfront Family Dentistry, your diagnosis is made quickly and accurately—thanks to cutting-edge dental technology, and more than 13 years of dental practice.
In particular, our orthodontic services provide effective solutions to the following problems:
