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.
How We Find Teeth and Jaw Alignment Issues
Some patients are afraid to seek treatment with an orthodontist due to common misconceptions about the pain and expenses involved. Similar concerns may stop parents from bringing their children in for early correction. The winter break is a good time to explore the need for orthodontics without making any commitment. We encourage you to seek a consultation for yourself or your loved one and then think it over. If you come in, you will quickly learn how we use the least invasive approaches possible and explain every procedure and treatment before we begin.
We treat common problems every day, such as patients with an excessive overbite or very crowded teeth in the front of their mouth that really impact the appearance of their smile. We can detect problems with your teeth and jaws using diagnostic tests, which may include:
- Taking x-rays of your mouth.
- Creating impressions of the lower and upper jaws, which we use to produce plaster casts.
By reviewing x-rays and impressions, we can identify the causes of misalignment and/or uneven teeth. We discuss the results with you in detail to help you understand how orthodontics treatment will provide relief. Before you pass up on another yummy mug of hot cocoa this holiday season, contact us for an appointment and learn if your smile can be improved through orthodontics.
