Calgary Orthodontists specialize in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of facial and dental irregularities – such as malocclusion (bad bites). Though Orthodontists in Calgary and Airdrie are considered experts when it comes to straightening teeth – there is also a lot of attention being given to the entire dental system to ensure that all soft tissue and skeletal deficiencies are being addressed. There are many reasons why dental patients seek out orthodontic treatment, and the range of treatment needs dictates how long treatment time lasts, and the type of orthodontic technology used to create a healthy, functional bite, with beautiful straight teeth.
Cosmetic concerns are often the motivating factor for individuals to move forward with orthodontic care – and the underlying causes of cosmetic concerns can be – Crowded Teeth (due to too small a mouth or misaligned jaws that aren’t the same size), Missing Teeth (due to being congenitally missing or the incorrect extraction of some teeth), an Underbite or Overbite (caused by incorrect development of the jaws) and general Facial Asymmetry that can result from a bad bite or malocclusion. And though Cosmetic concerns can be why patients decide to go ahead with orthodontic treatment; by treating the deficiencies that create the cosmetic concerns also addresses health issues that often accompany dental imperfections.
