A Better Smile in as Little as 6 Months
Having straight teeth isn’t just about aesthetics; it’s also crucial for your overall dental well-being. Crowded or misaligned teeth can be challenging to clean properly, increasing the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues.
Moreover, an improperly aligned bite can lead to difficulties with eating and breathing, potentially causing sleep disorders, TMJ (temporomandibular joint) problems, and uneven tooth wear.
At Guelph Family Dentistry, we provide a range of orthodontic treatments aimed at enhancing both your smile and your overall oral health. With dedicated care and adherence to our treatment plans, you can achieve your dream smile in as little as six months!
How do I know if I need orthodontics?
You may benefit from orthodontic treatment if you experience any of the following issues:
- Overbite: Upper teeth protrude too far forward.
- Spacing: Gaps or spaces between the teeth.
- Underbite: Lower teeth protrude too far forward.
- Crowding: Teeth are bunched up and overlap.
- Crossbite: A bite that doesn’t mesh comfortably.
- Pain: Chronic headaches, jaw pain, or upper back and neck pain.
If you experience any of these issues, we encourage you to schedule an orthodontic consultation at our dental office in Guelph as soon as you can.
Orthodontic Treatment Options
Guelph Family Dentistry offers customizable orthodontic care options for treating almost any orthodontic issue.
In terms of effectiveness, traditional braces remain unparalleled. They have evolved significantly from the bulky metal devices of the past, becoming smaller, less conspicuous, and more comfortable in modern times. This tried-and-true technology empowers orthodontists to manipulate teeth with enhanced precision and efficiency. That’s why we continue to endorse braces as an excellent choice for addressing both common and complex orthodontic issues.
Clear brackets represent a sophisticated and inconspicuous substitute for traditional metal brackets. When paired with sleek, contemporary orthodontic components, these clear brackets deliver the robustness and accuracy of conventional braces while nearly disappearing from view. This choice is particularly favoured among older teenagers and adults seeking a discreet orthodontic solution.
Over the past few years, clear aligners have seen a rapid surge in popularity as a practical, hassle-free, and discreet orthodontic treatment choice. Amid the numerous clear aligner options available, Invisalign stands out as one of the most preferred and trusted.
The treatment plan revolves around a sequence of clear trays designed to snugly fit over your teeth, progressively guiding them into the desired position. These trays can be effortlessly removed for meals, brushing, and special occasions. This makes Invisalign the obvious selection for individuals seeking a flexible and convenient orthodontic treatment option that won’t affect their appearance.
The Cost of Orthodontic Treatment in Guelph
With a typical insurance plan, the cost of orthodontic treatment in Guelph usually averages between $3000 and $5000+ out-of-pocket. After an oral exam, we would be happy to provide you with an accurate quote so you can find out how much your insurance plan will cover and what your actual out-of-pocket expenses would be. Without insurance, orthodontic treatment typically costs about $4000 to $6000+.
When considering the cost of orthodontics, there are a few things to consider:
- The current condition of your oral health including teeth and gums.
- How much your teeth need to move.
- The kind of orthodontic treatment you choose.
- The length of your treatment.
Because every smile is so different, the only way to find out which treatment is the best solution for you and how much it will cost you out of pocket is to schedule a consultation at our Guelph orthodontic office for a consultation.
