Being an orthodontist is not just about placing braces and straightening teeth. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that all children be seen starting at the age of 7 years to monitor the development of their bite and the eruption of their permanent teeth. I often recommend treatment once all the permanent teeth have erupted, however, on occasion, it may be necessary to intervene early to correct a bite that is shifting, or to assist in allowing permanent teeth to erupt, or facilitate jaws to grow. The types of braces that I offer in my Toronto private practice include conventional braces, ceramic or clear braces, lingual (inside) braces (Incognito), as well as Invisalign. Almost 40% of my practice is adults, so I strive to be at the forefront of technology in using clear, less noticeable materials to move teeth for these patient’s. If you call for a complimentary consultation (416-447-1515) and I’d be delighted to discuss options for you to begin a journey for a beautiful smile and harmonious bite.
