Did you know that correcting your bite and straightening your teeth not only looks great –- it also has a positive impacts on your general health? When your teeth are in their proper positions, it’s easier to chew your food and your digestion improves. It can also reduce tension headaches caused by improper alignment.
Here at Central Markham Dental Centre, we’re proud to be able to offer our patients different orthodontic options and timelines to suit their lifestyles. Contrary to popular believe, braces do not always need to be worn for a full two years –- some treatments are completed in as few as six months.
We offer two options for orthodontics in Markham –- traditional metal braces or Invisalign.
Traditional metal-style braces use metal wires, which have to be regularly tightened to straighten your teeth.
Invisalign braces are removable aligners that are changed every two weeks. Each aligner is custom-made to fit your teeth and slowly move them into their ideal positions.
The downside to braces is that they provide good hiding places for bits of food, increasing your risk for dental decay. Your Markham orthodontics specialist will give you specific care instructions to insure that you maintain good oral health while you undergo orthodontic treatment.
