Orthodontics is a specialty of dentistry that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of misaligned teeth and jaws. Orthodontists treat problems such as crooked teeth, crowded teeth, overbite, underbite, and disorders of the jaw. These doctors receive two or more additional years of orthodontic training after they have completed four years of dental school.
Teeth and jaws that are misaligned are more at risk of becoming decayed and lost. Misaligned teeth can also affect your appearance and self-confidence. Having these conditions treated by our orthodontist at Burlington, ON can lead to an overall healthier mouth and boost your self-confidence.

The correction of most orthodontic problems is usually treated with braces. Braces are fixed and are used to shift crooked, misaligned, or crowded teeth into their proper position. Braces can be made of metal or a translucent ceramic material that blends with your natural teeth color.
Aligners are also becoming a popular option to treat orthodontic issues. Aligners fix misaligned teeth in a similar method to braces. However, aligners are clear and removable.
