Achieving Straighter, Healthier Smiles

No matter how old you are, it is in your best interest to have crooked teeth straightened. Misaligned teeth can be more difficult to clean, leading to a variety of oral health issues. With the help of orthodontic treatments, you can enjoy a straighter, healthier smile.

The goal of orthodontic treatment is the same for children, teenagers or adults – to straighten teeth so they look better and work more effectively. Orthodontic appliances can be used to help with dental issues such as crowding, jaw misalignment, crossbite, underbite, and more.

Contact our dentists today to learn more about the orthodontic options available at Smyth Dental Centre.

What to Expect with Traditional Braces

If you have ever wondered how traditional braces work, you are not alone. These braces consist of wires and brackets, usually made from metal or ceramic. Brackets will be cemented to each tooth, then a wire is used to connect the brackets. This wire is tightened to exert continuous pressure on the teeth. Over time, braces can gradually shift your teeth until they are properly aligned.

Traditional braces have been used for decades to straighten teeth. In recent years, advances in orthodontic treatment have resulted in braces that are low-profile, more comfortable, and easier to care for.

How your braces look will ultimately depend on which type you choose. For instance, ceramic braces are made to closely match the natural colour of your teeth, while metal braces are made of stainless steel and may have transparent or coloured brackets. You'll be able to choose the colour of the brackets to match your preference.

Spark Clear Aligners

When most people think of braces, they imagine metal wires and brightly coloured brackets. Children may not mind the bright colours, but older teenagers and adults may wish to achieve a straighter, more uniform smile, discreetly. With Spark Clear Aligners, our patients can enjoy an effective and discreet orthodontic treatment option.

Our goal is to provide our patients with a treatment option that complements their lifestyle. Spark is a low-profile system that gives you a way to straighten your teeth without having to rely on metal braces. The aligners are fully transparent and won't draw attention while you are wearing them.

A key feature of the Spark process is virtual monitoring. You'll be able to scan your teeth with your phone and send the results to us. This allows us to check on your progress without having to schedule an in-person appointment, saving you the time of coming into our office.
