Orthodontics in Calgary Alberta
A beautiful smile is the most valuable thing a person can wear anywhere, anytime. The beauty of a smile blooms to it’s fullest when the teeth are properly aligned. People with improperly aligned teeth often cover their mouth when laughing or smiling, or cause them to simply avoid smiling altogether.
Risks from mispositioned teeth
Improperly positioned teeth can cause a number of problems which may include not only cosmetic issues but also cross bites, open bites, malocclusion and crowding which may create other problems which are more dangerous and require attention.
- Problems in speech
- Tooth wear
- Pain in facial muscles
- Pain in joints and headache
- Biting and chewing problems
- Gum problems due to the difficulty of cleaning overlapping teeth.
Orthodontic treatment is aimed at correcting the errors in the position of teeth. At Deer Valley Dental Center we can treat crooked teeth with braces or Invisalign. Invisalign uses thin, clear plastic shields to gently nudge the teeth into the correct alignment. Our general dentists treat malocclusion cases using dental braces and other orthodontic appliances. The treatment may take about 12 months or more depending on the complexity of the malocclusion. If you have a query regarding an orthodontic problem, speak to our general dentist in Calgary.
All dental services at our office are offered by general dentists.
