Why Westside Orthodontics?
At Westside Orthodontics, our work is about more than straightening teeth. It’s about creating beautiful smiles and helping you feel great. We are passionate about our work and the impact we have on our patients and our community. Come visit us in Vancouver’s Dunbar neighborhood for a complimentary consultation where our focus is on you and providing personalized, quality care by certified orthodontic specialists in a fun and friendly environment. We do the little things that make the difference…getting to know you, your family and your unique needs to guide you through the treatment process step by step. Dental referrals are not required.
For the majority of people, achieving a healthy, beautiful smile is the reason for selecting to receive orthodontic care. If you’re self-conscious about your smile, having braces will significantly improve the way that you look and feel.
When your treatment is complete, you’ll have the smile you’ve always dreamed of and the confidence to show it off! We also would like you to feel relaxed and confident throughout your entire orthodontic experience, and Westside Orthodontics is devoted to ensuring that you receive the quality care you deserve.
Orthodontic appliances are made of metal, ceramic, or plastic. They might be removable or they might be brackets bonded to the teeth. By placing a continuing, light force in a carefully controlled direction, braces slowly move teeth to the proper position.
Gone are the times when a metal band with a bracket was placed around each tooth. You now have the ability to select from brackets that are clear or metallic, and in a number of cases, the colour of your appliance. Wires are much less obvious, and the newest materials are designed to move teeth quicker with more comfort. Today, any age is a great age to wear braces!
Duration of Treatment
Treatment time varies, and can last between one-three years, depending on several factors, including age, treatment strategy, and how minor or severe your case is. A serious element of a successful treatment is the patient! The more involved and diligent you are the quicker and more effective your treatment will be. For kids, receiving interceptive, or early treatment, can also help provide a quicker treatment time.
Prior to starting your orthodontic care, your dentist will discuss all of your options, and provide an estimate for how long your full treatment may take. Please contact Westside Orthodontics to schedule an appointment, and find out more about orthodontics and the treatments we provide.
