Invisalign and Braces
Invisalign and Braces Etobicoke. Early intervention and fine-tuning the relationship of teeth to one another to create that beautiful smile.
Though both are considered Orthodontics, Orthopedics is usually initiated earlier in an effort to assure more favorable facial growth and jaw structure. It is known that only 18 to 20% of malocclusion in children is genetic. This implies that the remaining 80% of poor bites arise due to environmental factors, i.e., poor tongue position, mouth breathing, allergies, or enlarged tonsils and adenoids. As these influences act upon the developing lower face almost from birth, it is important to try to and counteract these negative influences early and to allow for more normal development. Well-timed functional therapy can have an astounding influence on your child’s development often discouraging mouth breathing, poor sleep habits and a slow physical growth pattern. Functional orthopedics is usually therapy of short duration, may involve removable appliances and often makes more extensive therapy (braces) unnecessary.
Orthodontics involves the use of braces that are bonded to the teeth. These braces allow us to control the teeth more accurately so that we can fine tune their relationship to one another and create that beautiful smile.
Invisalign® braces uses new technology to offer you the straightest way to a great smile. The new removable invisible aligners will straighten your teeth without anyone realizing you are receiving orthodontic treatment. With Invisalign®, there are no metal wires or brackets, only proven results. It is a comfortable and convenient way to straighten teeth and to have a beautiful smile.
Functional orthopedics are a great way to help younger patients avoid many conditions, such as, poor sleep habits, TMJ pain, sleep apnea, small lower jaws (weak chin profile) and proud upper teeth (buck teeth) that my lead to poor self-image.
TMJ (TMD) Therapy
Many suffer from temporomandibular joint pain or temporomandibular dysfunction. Meaningful treatment begins with proper diagnosis.
1. Pain on opening
2. Inability to open wide or move from side to side comfortably
3. Neck and shoulder pain
4. Ear pain, hearing loss
5. Ringing in the ears
6. Clenching, night grinding
7. Chronic fatigue
8. Noise, grating or popping in joint
9. Chronic temporal or occipital headache
10. Chronic temporal or occipital headache
Treatment of these problems can be complicated. The cause can often be multi-factorial. Successful treatment may involve other professionals; physiotherapists, chiropractors, massage therapists, cranio-mandibular specialists and physicians.
Male and female athletes of any sport can benefit from mouthguards and mouthpieces.
Which performance mouthwear is right for you? The answer depends on your sport of choice. If you want protection and performance enhancement for no- or low-contact sports such as tennis, weightlifting, or baseball, the UnderArmour Performance Mouthpiece will give you the perfect amount of protection and performance enhancement without unnecessary bulk. For sports such as football, hockey, rugby, or similar activities, UnderArmour’s Performance Mouthguard will offer you the most protection available, while simultaneously enhancing your performance.
Male and female athletes from ages 8 and up can likely benefit from UnderArmour Performance Mouthwear. However, if you’re currently wearing braces, have missing or unrepaired teeth, or have suffered from joint pain in the past, it may not be the best option for you.
Getting a customized Performance Mouthguard or performance mouthpiece is both quick and easy, and can be done in conjunction with another planned visit to the dentist. We’ll make impressions of your teeth (top and bottom) and will also take a bite impression to ensure an optimal fit. After getting your impressions finished, we’ll call you when your Performance Mouthwear is ready for you to pick up (usually around 10 days from when it was ordered). Cleaning UnderArmour Performance Mouthwear is easy and can be done with the same products you use to clean your teeth.
Migraine Pain Prevention
If you suffer from tension or migraine headaches, stabilization splints may help reduce the frequency and intensity of your headaches. Appropriate for headache sufferers—as well as those who may be experiencing tooth wear, jaw muscle pain, or those who simply want to protect their mouth’s surfaces during a time of healing, a properly fitted stabilization splint is smaller and more comfortable than a traditional bite guard. Stabilization splints can prevent and/or reduce the intensity of jaw clenching while you sleep, which can minimize headaches and create a variety of other benefits.
