Orthodontics for Children
At Topsmiles Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, Dr. Alvaro Salles recommends that children receive their first orthodontic evaluation by the age of seven.
By this age, a child’s permanent teeth have started to come in, and the dentist can evaluate the growth and development of their teeth and jaws. Early detection of any orthodontic issues can help prevent more severe problems from developing in the future.
Some common orthodontic problems that children may experience include overcrowding, overbites, underbites, and crossbites. These problems can be corrected with braces or other orthodontic appliances.
At Topsmiles Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, we offer a range of orthodontic treatments for children, including traditional metal braces, self-ligating braces, and clear aligners.
Orthodontics for Teens
For patients in and around Winnipeg, the most common time for orthodontic treatment at Topsmiles Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics is between the ages of 11-16.
Orthodontic treatment works to correct misaligned teeth and jaws. The teenage years are ideal for treatment, as the teeth and jaws are still growing, making them easier to move into the correct position.
Traditional metal braces are a popular option for teenagers because they are effective and can be customized with colored bands to suit the patient’s personality. Teens love clear aligners for their low profile and removability.
At Topsmiles Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, we understand that your teen has a busy schedule. We work to accommodate them and you with flexible appointment times and efficient treatment plans.
Orthodontics for Adults
We treat a lot of adult patients (around 35%-40%) who believe that it's never too late to improve their smiles. Nowadays, orthodontic treatment is not just for children anymore.
Regardless of your age, we can change your tooth alignment if your gums and bone structure are healthy. Topsmiles Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics offers a range of orthodontic treatments for all age groups, including adults.
Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment for Adults
- Improves appearance
- Boosts self-esteem and confidence
- Enhances dental health
- Prevents gum and bone loss
- Prevents tooth decay and wear
- Reduces headaches and jaw joint pain
Our modern techniques and appliances make adult orthodontic treatment more comfortable, requiring fewer visits and shorter treatment times. You can choose from metal braces, clear braces, or transparent aligners that are suitable for mild cases of misaligned teeth and can be worn at night.
During your first free consultation, we will determine the best treatment for your individual needs. You will know the exact cost of the investment and how long the treatment will take before you leave our office.
