Orthodontics For Kids

The Canadian and American Association of Orthodontists recommend that all children receive an orthodontic examination by 7 years of age.

Orthodontics For Teens

At the age of 12, most of the permanent teeth have erupted. At this time, we can easily correct misaligned teeth, jaws, and bites.

 

Orthodontics For Adults

More and more adults are seeking orthodontic treatment to improve their smile. We offer a variety of aesthetic options for our adult patients.

 

Personalized Comprehensive Orthodontic Treatment by a Registered Specialist

We specialize in the efficient delivery of personalized and minimally-invasive orthodontics. We work tirelessly to provide our patients with the least invasive (non-extraction/non-surgical) and most efficient orthodontic treatment modality to deliver the most aesthetic smile, while avoiding extractions of healthy teeth or invasive surgeries.


We provide complimentary screenings (for children of all ages) for the early detection of orthodontic developmental problems, identifying patients requiring pediatric-interceptive treatments aimed at addressing dental and skeletal jaw developmental problems, using minimally invasive approaches.
We specialize in facial growth modification techniques, to deal with severe skeletal jaw problems in young and growing patients, this helps avoid the need for aggressive and invasive surgical correction of such jaw problems later in life.

  • Growth modification and Dentofacial Orthopaedics to address jaw growth & facial developmental conditions, using functional appliances for the purpose of altering and redirecting unfavourable growth patterns.
  • Fixed Orthodontics: Personalized comprehensive orthodontic treatment, using fixed braces. We utilize a variety of options, including metal and clear braces. At Smile Elements, we use self-ligating technology to reduce forces, reduce appointment time, and reduce overall length of treatment, and treat without extractions for the virtually all our patients.
  •  Hybrid Orthodontics: Aligners with Fixed appliance to offer our patients the best of both worlds, the aesthetics of clear aligners (Invisalign®) and efficiency of fixed appliances.
  • Early Interceptive Orthodontic management for patients 10 year old or younger. We do not believe in starting early treatment for every young patient, instead, we perform early (phase 1) treatments ONLY when indicated, as interceptive treatment aimed at intercepting a developing problem at an early stage

 

At Smile Elements, we use self-ligating technology to reduce forces, reduce appointment time, and reduce overall length of treatment. We offer a variety of options for braces, including metal and clear braces. 

At the end of your treatment, we will provide you with retainers to maintain your teeth and bite. In addition, we will monitor your teeth and your bite for a period of time in order to ensure that everything is healthy.

Early Treatment

Although orthodontic treatment may not be required, certain growth abnormalities can be detected at this age. Early intervention can improve growth patterns and avoid complex treatment in the future.

Some signs that early orthodontic treatment may be required are:

  • To influence jaw growth in a favourable manner
  • Preserve or gain space for permanent teeth
  • Improve tooth eruption patterns
  • Early or late loss of primary teeth
  • Thumb sucking or other oral habits
  • Cross-bites
  • Improve speech problems

If no treatment is required, your child will be enrolled in our Growth and Guidance program. We will follow your child’s dental development every six months, at no fee, to ensure that everything is right on track!

Adolescent Treatment

The ideal time to start orthodontic treatment is during the adolescent years, between the ages of 11-14. At this time, most of the adult teeth have erupted and children are experiencing a growth spurt. These growth spurts assist in correcting the bite and making treatment outcomes more predictable.

We have a number of treatment options available for our adolescent patients including self-ligating braces, clear braces, and Invisalign.
