Orthodontics at Ahpin Dental Centre

At Ahpin Dental Centre, we provide orthodontics for patients of all ages, from children to adults.

Orthodontics for Children

Orthodontics for children typically focus on preventative treatment. Children should see an orthodontist by age 7, before their jaw growth has slowed. This allows us to guide jaw development and take advantage of the natural growth patterns in correcting orthodontic issues.

Some benefits of early orthodontic treatment are:

  • Improved chewing and swallowing
  • Improved speech development
  • Prevention of the need for permanent teeth extractions
  • Prevention of the need for jaw surgery
  • Enhanced sleep quality

Orthodontics for Teens

Orthodontics for teens involve correcting problems such as crooked teeth and gaps. Since most permanent teeth have erupted and are in place, these problems rarely correct themselves. The orthodontic treatment options available include braces and Invisalign® transparent aligners.

Orthodontics for Adults

Orthodontics aren’t just for kids and teens – adults can benefit from orthodontic treatments as well. Treating crooked teeth or a bad bite can improve oral health by preventing:

  • Tooth decay
  • Jaw (TMJ) pain
  • Joint (TMD) pain
  • Gum loss
  • Bone loss
  • Abnormal wear of the surfaces of teeth
  • Headaches

Orthodontic treatments for adults include braces and Invisalign® transparent aligners.
