Orthodontics

Orthodontics is a way to correct the positioning of the teeth to create a straight and healthy smile. Misaligned teeth can create hard to clean areas which increase the risk for tooth decay and gum disease. However, properly positioned teeth will allow for easier brushing and flossing which improves the overall oral health.

Orthodontics can treat issues such as

  • Overbites which is when the lower jaw is too far behind the upper jaw
  • Underbites which is when the lower teeth are too far forward compared to the upper teeth
  • Crowding is when there is not enough space for the existing teeth
  • Gaps between teeth.due to missing or smaller teeth
  • Orthodontics are designed to correct these issues over a period of time depending on each individual’s case.
Here at Advance Dental Canley Heights, we also provide the option of ClearCorrect, which allows the dentist to straighten your teeth using a series of clear, custom, removable aligners. Each aligner moves your teeth just a little bit at a time until you eventually get a straighter, healthier smile.
 
How does it work?
Our dentists will evaluate your teeth and talk through any problems or goals you have for your smile to establish if ClearCorrect is the best treatment option for you. If both parties decide that ClearCorrect is the best fit, the dentist will take impressions, photos and x-rays of your teeth that ClearCorrect will use to manufacture your custom aligners. The dentist will then write a prescription for your custom aligners that will be sent to ClearCorrect
 
What can it do?
ClearCorrect can treat a wide variety of issues that keep people from achieving their ideal smiles. Straighter teeth don’t just look better; they work better too. Poorly-aligned teeth can interfere with bite function, wear out quicker, and are more prone to cavities. Ask your doctor how ClearCorrect can help you.
