Orthodontic Care For a Healthy and Beautiful Smile
Misaligned, crowded, and gapped teeth aren't always just aesthetic issues. In fact, these orthodontic issues can put you at risk for cavities, tooth decay, and gum disease. A misaligned bite can also cause TMJ disorders which can lead to teeth grinding, headaches, and more. By seeking treatment at our Westmount, QC, dental practice outside Montreal, we can treat your orthodontic issues with traditional braces or Invisalign, protecting the health of your mouth and improving the appearance of your smile.

How Do Braces Work?
Braces Step-by-Step What Patients Can Expect
Traditional orthodontic treatment can take anywhere from six months to a year or more, depending on the severity of your misalignment.
Caring for Your Teeth With Braces
Patients with braces must be diligent with their oral hygiene practices. It is important to brush your teeth at least twice each day, if not after every meal. You can brush your teeth and braces just as you would without braces. You will still need to floss daily, and it may be helpful to use a floss threader. If you do not properly care for your teeth and braces, there is an increased risk of gum disease and permanent staining to your teeth.
It is also important to avoid certain foods that can cause damage to your braces. During your traditional orthodontic treatment, you should avoid foods such as nuts, popcorn, chewing gum, caramel, taffy, corn on the cob, and other hard foods. Certain foods can be modified for easier consumption. For example, corn can be removed from the cob.
Understanding Invisalign An Orthodontic Alternative to Braces
A Dedication to Treatment
While Invisalign aligners are removable, patients must be committed to wearing them for 20 to 22 hours a day for optimal results. They should be taken out to eat and clean and can be removed during special occasions.
Mild to Moderate Orthodontic Issues
While Invisalign is a great treatment for mild to moderate orthodontic problems, severe orthodontic issues may require traditional braces to correct.
