Orthodontics – Pickering, ON

Straighter Smiles Can Improve Future Oral Health

Your child is a good candidate for orthodontics or braces if they have healthy teeth, gums, and good oral habits. The most common conditions requiring braces are overbite, underbite and crowding. A consult with an orthodontist is typically recommended at age 7. However, if a child has alignment issues or other bite issues with baby teeth, the child should and can be treated with certain appliances in early treatment or phase I orthodontics to correct these issues before they cause severe problems with the permanent dentition. If you are concerned about any of these issues, please ask us so that we can address your concerns. If your child is a patient of record and has regular checkups at our office, we will evaluate bite issues at every six-month check.
