At Greensborough Dental in Markham, we take pride in making our patients’ orthodontic experience a pleasurable one.
The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that children get an orthodontic evaluation no later than age 7. Orthodontic treatment at Greensborough Dental – your Markham dentist can be done at any age but timely treatment ensures maximum dental health. By the age of 7, the first adult molars erupt, establishing the back bite. During this time, we can evaluate front-to-back and side-to-side tooth relationships. For example, the presence of erupting incisors can indicate possible overbite, open bite, crowding or gummy smiles.
Adults suffering from a bad bit or crooked teeth can also improve their smile at any point in time. Visit Greensborough Dental in Markham for an orthodontic consultation. Depending on your case the duration of your treatment will be determined. Certain dietary instructions hove to be followed throughout your treatment time with traditional braces.
