Why is orthodontic treatment important?
At SmileTown Orthodontics Burnaby, the goal of orthodontic treatment is to straighten and align your child's or teen's teeth so they look and function better.
To accomplish this, we develop a custom treatment plan geared to your child's needs and assess whether they require braces, retainers, aligners, or a combination of these. Orthodontic treatment can fix significant problems with your child's or teen's teeth that can impact both their oral health and appearance.
Benefits for Your Child
With straight, evenly aligned teeth, people are naturally more likely to be confident in their smile and try activities (and food) they would otherwise avoid.
Plus, a straight smile makes it easier to brush, floss and maintain excellent oral hygiene to prevent cavities, heading off serious health issues that can result from plaque buildup, gum disease, loss of tooth enamel and tooth decay.
Our orthodontists can determine whether your child or teen needs Phase I or Phase II treatment, and develop a custom treatment plan to address issues.
