Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics

Orthodontics isn’t just for teenagers. At our dental clinic, we offer orthodontic treatments for patients of all ages because it’s never too late to improve your smile and oral health. While the aesthetic aspect is often highlighted, the primary goal of orthodontics is to correct various occlusal issues such as misalignment, crowding, overjet, and open bite.

In orthodontics, we use gentle forces applied to the teeth to correct their alignment. When these pressures are directed towards the bone bases, it falls under dentofacial orthopedics, an approach that helps correct improper jaw positions. This is crucial because a poorly positioned dentition can lead to difficulties in chewing, premature tooth wear, speech issues, muscle tension and pain, headaches or migraines, complicated dental hygiene, and an increased risk of developing cavities.

For young patients aged 7 to 12, our dental clinic uses orthodontic devices to intercept and correct dental malpositions as they arise. These devices play a crucial role in guiding the growth of the mouth, helping avoid more costly and lengthy interventions in the future. In some cases, interceptive orthodontic treatment can even eliminate the need for future jaw surgery.

The types of orthodontic devices vary depending on the issue being addressed. For adults, orthodontic solutions are also varied and may include more discreet and comfortable devices tailored to their lifestyle and aesthetic needs.

During a comprehensive orthodontic examination at our dental clinic, our dentist carefully assesses your situation to determine the most appropriate treatment. We consider not only the aesthetic aspect of your smile but also the impact of orthodontics on your overall oral health. Our goal is to ensure you achieve a straight, radiant, and healthy smile while improving your quality of life.

At the Alain Cyr Dental Health and Implantology Clinic, we are committed to providing the best possible orthodontic care. Our experienced team uses advanced techniques and cutting-edge technologies to ensure optimal results.

First Consultation

During this visit, our experienced orthodontic team is dedicated to understanding your individual needs and developing a personalized treatment plan.

Treatment Options

Each patient is unique, and the same goes for orthodontic treatments. During the consultation, we will discuss the different options available, considering the current state of your dentition, your aesthetic and functional expectations, and your lifestyle.

Among the options, you might discover traditional orthodontic appliances, which are effective for correcting a wide variety of misalignments and malocclusions. For those seeking a more discreet solution, we can offer invisible orthodontic appliances such as clear aligners. Each option will be explained in detail, including the benefits and specific considerations of each treatment.

Duration of Treatment
The duration of your orthodontic treatment depends on several factors, including the complexity of your case and the type of appliance chosen. In general, orthodontic treatment can last from 6 months to a few years. Our goal is to achieve the best results in the shortest possible time without compromising the quality of care.

Approximate Cost

Understanding the financial implications is an essential part of planning your treatment. While the cost varies depending on the type of treatment, its duration, and the specificity of your case, we are committed to providing a transparent estimate during your first consultation. We will also discuss payment options and available financing plans to ensure that orthodontic treatment is accessible and manageable for you.
