Orthodontics in Tsawwassen, BC from Dr. Brown and Dr. Nind
Modern orthodontics make it easy to correct a misaligned smile; if you have teeth that are spaced too far apart or are crowded too closely together, even if you have bite alignment problems, Dr. Jonathan Brown and Dr. Earle Nind offer orthodontics in Tsawwassen to help you get the well-aligned and beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. Patients can choose metal braces and can even elect to use clear, aesthetic braces for straightening their teeth.
Getting Traditional Metal Braces
Metal braces make tremendous strides for your smile aesthetically, and benefit your oral health in the long run, as straight teeth are easier to keep clean and free of debris. Metal braces correct spacing and can also align a bad bite to prevent jaw problems that can pose health issues later in life. Dr. Brown has years of experience in studying the relationship between the jaw-joints, muscles, and teeth positioning for improved oral health. He is among a small group of dentists who received a fellowship in neuromuscular dentistry from the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, and is knowledgeable about helping you achieve healthy alignment for both teeth and jaw.
Traditional braces, or wire braces, are a tried and tested way to ensure that you achieve the smile you deserve. Brackets are affixed to the fronts of teeth and are connected to each other by a wire in order to move your teeth into more ideal alignment. Dr. Brown monitors the alignment process and adjusts the wire tension during check-up visits to ensure your orthodontic treatment is moving forward as planned.
Taking Care of your Metal Braces - Special care for wire braces must be taken to ensure that wires or brackets aren’t damaged; hard and crunchy foods, as well as carbonated drinks, are best avoided as they may loosen the brackets and prevent your braces from working as they should. Dr. Brown may also recommend that you use special brushes or picks to thoroughly clean around your braces twice a day.
Interested in Clear Braces? We Offer Invisalign® in Tsawwassen
However, if you’re hesitant about getting metal braces, Drs. Nind and Brown are happy to provide clear braces from Invisalign® for straight, healthy smiles. The Invisalign® system does not
require anything to be affixed to teeth; Invisalign® uses removable plastic aligners that are designed to be worn at all times, except for eating and brushing/flossing. These plastic retainers are completely clear and discreet; your friends and co-workers won’t be able to notice that you’ve gotten new orthodontics. You can even keep the same diet and oral health routine.
Before you get your Invisalign® aligners, Dr. Brown will take x-rays of your teeth to create the best treatment plan and send this information to Invisalign®. From there, Invisalign®’s laboratory will construct a series of alignment trays to correct your smile without wires or brackets.
