Straighten your smile with orthodontics in East Gwillimbury, ON

Are you bothered by crooked, unevenly spaced, or misaligned teeth? Do you worry about the appearance and inconvenience of metal braces? If so, you could be a great candidate for one of the many Orthodontic options offered at Harvest Hills Dental Care in East Gwillimbury, ON, options that deliver results in a beautiful and convenient way.

The health benefits of teeth straightening

Everyone loves an attractive smile, with nice straight teeth. However, cosmetic enhancement is just one of many reasons to seek orthodontic treatment:

  • Easier, more effective oral hygiene – Crowded teeth can trap plaque and food particles, leading to decay or gum disease.
  • Protect your teeth – When teeth are crooked or misaligned, biting force is not distributed evenly, which can cause chips, fractures, worn enamel, and other problems.
  • Prevent jaw problems – Orthodontic problems can contribute to jaw pain and TMJD (temporomandibular joint disorder).
  • Improve chewing efficiency – When teeth do not line up well, it can be hard to bite off and chew food.

Common Orthodontic Options

Standard braces work by applying constant, gentle pressure at strategic points, causing gradual tooth movement. Invisalign does the very same thing, but without the metal brackets and wires. Instead, it utilizes a series of lightweight, transparent aligners that fit over your teeth much like a retainer.

Invisalign aligners works well for patients as they are:

  • Clear – Your beautiful smile shows through
  • Removable – No-hassle meals and oral hygiene
  • Comfortable – No bulk, no sharp wires
  • Effective – Results and treatment time are comparable to standard braces

If you have more severe issues with bite problems or alignment, we have the traditional wire-and-bracket braces and other orthodontic appliances for more advanced needs. Clear braces are used often as they are less noticeable than metal.
