Your First Orthodontic AppointmentFirst Orthodontic Appointment at Lakewood Dental Centre Read Transcript
The aspect about orthodontics is that it covers all bases of that. We talk about comfort, we talk about function, we talk about aesthetics, and we talk about longevity and durability. The right teeth in the right place function better, fit better, and are more comfortable. So we see lots of kids that have smiles that are not good. They don't function well and if left untreated, they're going to become bigger and bigger problems as time goes on. So the aspect of being interceptive is important. The aspect of being comprehensive is important. The aspect about having a quality end result is important. So, for all of those things, when the kids grow up and they have a nice smile and it stays that way for a long time, it's an investment well spent.
Orthodontic treatment can be used to straighten crooked teeth and correct problems with your bite. The general dentists, Dr. Dhillon and Dr. McDermid, at Lakewood Dental Centre in Winnipeg, MB, offer several types of orthodontic treatments including treatment for occlusion and temporomandibular dysfunction.
To schedule your first orthodontic appointment with Dr. Dhillon or Dr. McDermid, call our Winnipeg, MB office, Lakewood Dental Centre, at (204) 977-8515.
You Have Multiple Choices for Braces
We can evaluate which type of braces may be best for your smile goals. Carriere braces use advanced metal brackets to realign your teeth. We may also recommend braces that use a nickel-titanium wire instead of a stainless steel wire, as the difference in the wire may result in fewer adjustment appointments.
Clear braces use a series of removable, see-through trays to realign your teeth. Depending on your level of need, we may recommend one of our clear braces choices as a short-term orthodontic option. Our Winnipeg, MB office offers:
- Smart Moves
- K-Line clear aligners (short-term only)
We also use the advanced CNA Beta III nickel-free archwires and Biokinetix thermally activated wires. The treatment can also be enhanced with TAD (Temporary Anchor Devices) and Propel Orthodontics. All of these options can help shorten your treatment time.
Your First Orthodontic Appointment Will Include an Assessment
At your first orthodontic visit, our doctors will assess your needs and determine if you’re ready for braces. If you’re seeking braces for your child, they might determine your child needs more time to develop before braces will be effective. If you’re an adult, they might find that you need to address oral health issues like gum disease before you can safely wear braces.
Dr. McDermid and Dr. Dhillon have been improving patients’ smiles for many years. Schedule an orthodontic appointment with them at Lakewood Dental Centre by calling (204) 977-8515 or filling out our easy online form.
