Orthodontics in Mississauga - Meadowvale Dental Centre
If you’re looking to improve or straighten your smile, traditional orthodontics may be the solution you’ve been looking for. Conventional clear and metal braces are still the most popular choice for correcting issues such as crooked smiles, crowding, underbites, and overbites. Orthodontists specialize in correcting irregularities of the teeth, ensuring your smile is perfect.
At Meadowvale Dental Centre, our Mississauga Orthodontist, Dr. Andrea Heckler offers many orthodontic solutions and therapies for patients looking to straighten their teeth and align their bite.
Meadowvale Dental Centre offers many different orthodontic therapies for our Mississauga patients. Dr. Andrea Heckler can help you decide which treatment fits best with your needs and lifestyle. Some of the orthodontic appliances we offer include the following:
Once attached to your teeth, clear and metal braces apply a constant pressure on your teeth in order to guide them into the correct position. Traditional braces offer many advantages, especially for kids, and are not removable. Modern clear and metal braces are more comfortable, flatter, and smaller than past versions.
Dr. Andrea Heckler offers bands for children in a variety of colors that express their own unique style, making wearing braces fun. For Mississauga orthodontic patients who want a more discrete look, there are also ceramic brackets available and we also offer Invisalign as a treatment option for our patients.
After completing orthodontic treatment, most patients will have to wear retainers long term. Retainers help maintain the improvements that were made by wearing braces and can be fixed or removable depending on the patient’s needs. Consistent use of retainers can minimize the need for additional orthodontic treatment.
If you are an athlete, or simply spend a lot of time participating in high-impact activities, you should consider wearing a sports guard to ensure your smile is protected.
A sports guard is worn over your teeth to prevent injuries from blows to the face or head, and are an important piece of equipment for anyone involved in sports. If you wear braces, your orthodontist will recommend you wear a sports guard when participating in activities such as soccer, hockey, football or skiing to prevent any injuries to your mouth.
There are three different types of sports guard- custom-made, boil and bite guards, and stock mouth guards- and the type you choose will depend on what’s most effective and comfortable for you.
