Orthodontics in Richmond Hills Ontario

One common dental problem that we help to correct is tooth misalignment. Tooth misalignment occurs when there are problems with your teeth’s position, such as erupting at a crooked position or overcrowding. As a result, misalignment can create oral health problems, such as increased risks of decay and gum disease. Also, because overcrowding can create pressure on your bite, it can lead to pain and discomfort. However, often the biggest complaint about tooth misalignment is that it makes your smile unattractive.

Dr. M Pezeshki, Cosmetic Dentist in Richmond Hill, is proud to help our patients improve their smile by offering personalized orthodontics and orthopedics solutions. Our orthodontic treatments can effectively treat a wide variety of dental and bite problems, such as crooked teeth, overcrowding, gaps, overbites, underbites, crossbites, and more....

The first step of the orthodontic process is to come in for an evaluation with our dentist. We will carefully check your teeth’s position and go over your dental history to see if your smile requires orthodontic treatment. Digital X-rays may be used to ensure we get a complete overview of your teeth and bone structures.

For young patients and those with less complex cases, the dentist may recommend orthopedics as a first step. Orthopedics is different from orthodontics by the fact that it uses removable oral appliances, such as retainers, to align your teeth and bite into optimal alignment. Unlike orthodontics which involves having braces bonded to the patient’s teeth, the appliances used for orthopedics can be removed which make eating, brushing, and flossing easy. In fact, if orthopedics is started early enough, it can negate the need for braces in the future.

However, in cases when the patient’s tooth and bite problems are more complex, Dr. M Pezeshki may recommend braces to shift your teeth into place. Because braces are bonded to teeth, this gives the dentist more control to guide them into optimal position.

Following your orthodontic treatment, you will have to wear retainers to ensure you retain your new and improved smile.
