When the time comes to take the plunge and begin the teeth-straightening process for your teen, you may be feeling as overwhelmed as you are excited. Ensuring that your child comes out of their orthodontic appliances with a healthy, beautiful smile is a big responsibility, but finding the right treatment plan for their lifestyle can make all the difference. Here are some tips to help you and your teen decide if traditional braces or Invisalign is the best option for them.
The month of December is a time to check off many things on your list. If you aren’t happy with your smile, the winter break is a good time to visit your local orthodontic team. We have offices in Mckenzie Towne, Calgary, and Okotoks, Alberta, where Dr. Dhol is prepared to consult with you and your family regarding any smile correction concerns you may have. Unlike a dentist, an orthodontist can fix your jaw so that your teeth meet together correctly. A jaw misalignment could be related to your genetics or to a prior injury. You deserve to have any problems with your jaw bones fixed by the friendly team at myORTHODONTIST. We want to help you smile more often! This starts with diagnosing any issues that you may have.
At myORTHODONTIST, we are recognizing October as National Dental Hygiene Month! We love working with the beautiful smiles in our community. We also take pride in keeping our patients diligent with their dental hygiene. There’s nothing like a beautifully aligned smile that is also healthy and strong!
Orthodontists are dental specialists who are University trained in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of dental and facial irregularities. They provide a wide range of treatment options to straighten crooked teeth, fix bad bites and align the jaws correctly. While orthodontists are primarily known for straightening teeth, they can also assist with painful and misaligned bites, tooth movement caused by bad habits such as thumb sucking, and even some forms of sleep apnea.
