Orthodontics in Aurora, ON

Orthodontics is the field of dentistry that corrects teeth not properly placed in the jaw. In addition to a better smile and an improved appearance, straight teeth are healthier. Teeth that are crooked, or that do not fit together properly, have a higher risk for decay, gum disease and cause extra stress on the muscles used for biting and chewing.

The doctors and the Orthodontist at Aurora Dental Studio, want to educate their patients, current and new, on the field of orthodontics and whether this treatment method may be an option to consider.

How do I know if I need orthodontic treatment?

It is the dentist, or the orthodontist, that makes this determination. The treatment plan, if any, is made from diagnostic tools, a review of the full medical and dental history of the patient, a clinical exam, impressions, special x-rays and photographs.

If you have any one of the conditions below, then you may be a candidate for orthodontic treatment:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Cross bite
  • Open bite
  • Misplaced midline
  • Spacing
  • Crowding

How does orthodontic treatment work?

There are many types of appliances, removable and fixed, to retrain muscles, to influence jaw growth and to straighten teeth. These appliances work by the application of gentle pressure over time.

Below are examples of fixed appliances:

  • Braces
  • Fixed appliances that attach to teeth
  • Fixed space maintainers used when there is premature loss of baby teeth

Below are examples of removable appliances:

  • Aligners
  • Removable space maintainers
  • Removable retainers
  • Retainers for jaw repositioning
  • Lip and cheek bumpers
  • Palate expanders
  • Headgear
