At Burloak Centre Dentistry, patients have the option to straighten their teeth with traditional orthodontics. Our dentists in Burlington / Oakville, Ontario community also provide alternatives that can be used, including Six Month Smiles and Invisalign. Our team of professionals can help patients decide which method is most appropriate for their specific needs in treating malocclusion.
Mild cases of misalignment that do not require bite adjustments may be addressed with Six Month Smiles. Six Month Smiles is a fast and effective way of repositioning the teeth near the front of the mouth. This treatment can address gaps between teeth and mild misalignment of the anterior teeth. It does this by using specialized wires and brackets that are tooth-coloured, providing improvement while also eliminating the embarrassment that can come from traditional metal brackets and wires. Most patients obtain a more beautiful smile in four to nine months, with average treatment time around six months.
Patients with mild to moderate misalignment who also need bite adjustment may be appropriate candidates for a treatment called Invisalign - the clear alternative to braces. This method of orthodontia uses clear aligner trays to reposition the teeth. As long as patients comply with treatment, they will see results quickly. Treatment requires individuals to wear their trays all day and night, only removing them to eat or care for the smile and clean their trays. Each tray is worn for two weeks before the next one in the series is used. Patients can obtain a more beautifully aligned smile in approximately one year with compliance.
There are cases that may benefit from traditional forms of treatment. Traditional braces utilize metal brackets and wires to reposition the teeth and can improve both misalignment of the dental arch and the bite.
It is essential that patients visit the practice to undergo an initial examination and determine which treatment is right for them. Misalignment is a common complaint for many adults, but our practice is equipped with services to provide optimum results with or without traditional braces.
