Many of us wish we had straighter teeth. Did you know that having straighter teeth not only improves your smile and self-confidence, but also significantly improves your dental health. When your teeth are straight, they are easier to clean and thus less susceptible to gum disease/infection and cavities. You will also has less risk of teeth fractures and jaw joint problems (TMJ). In children, as many of the causes of crowded/crooked teeth may be due to airway obstruction, narrow dental arch development, jaw bone misalignment, thumb sucking habits, etc., having the appropriate orthodontic treatment at the appropriate time will help to promote proper dental and overall growth and development in these children.
Dr. Guan has been an active member of the International Association of Orthodontics since 2003 and has advanced his knowledge in the field of orthodontics through many continuing education courses. As a family dental clinic in Bowmanville, we offer both adult and children orthodontic treatments. We can provide metal braces, but also the more esthetic clear brackets or Invisalign.
The precise amount of time that a patient will spend receiving orthodontic treatment varies from person to person depending on the condition. The traditional estimate is around two years. However, at Ohana Dental Clinic, as an authorized provider of Fastbraces
the treatment time can be as short as 6 months, depending on your condition while avoiding extraction of teeth. Also, traditionally, children are recommended to receive orthodontic treatment until they have most of their adult teeth. However, in many of these case, if early functional orthodontic treatment is implemented, extractions of adult teeth or even jaw bone surgeries could be avoided.
At Ohana Dental Clinic, as a commitment to our patients, we provide free orthodontic consultation and we have payment plans for orthodontic treatment. Please contact us if you have any question. We are happy to work together with you to build a more beautiful and healthier smile.
