Correcting Dental Issues: Orthodontic Treatment in Edmonton
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that focuses on correcting various dental issues, including:
- misaligned teeth
- improper bites
- spacing problems
- crooked teeth
- speech difficulties
The goal of orthodontic treatment is to improve both the aesthetic appearance and functionality of the patient's teeth while promoting overall oral health. Neglected dental problems can lead to low self-esteem, confidence issues, changes in facial appearance, poor dental health, nutrition problems, and even severe headaches. Orthodontic treatment not only restores a great smile but also reduces the risk of tooth decay and gum diseases, ensuring a healthier and more fulfilling life.
Orthodontic Care for All Ages: Children and Adults
Contrary to common beliefs, orthodontic treatment is not limited to children. Adults can also benefit from orthodontic care to correct natural teeth movement that occurs with age. However, for children, it is recommended to have an initial consultation by the age of 12 when enough permanent teeth have erupted and jaw growth can be assessed. Early consultation allows for determining the optimal timing for treatment, potentially avoiding more extensive and costly procedures. Early intervention can help young jaw bones develop properly, leading to improved facial aesthetics and preventing years of embarrassment.

Step-by-Step Orthodontic Treatment Process at Crown Dental Clinic
Our orthodontic treatment procedure involves a thorough diagnostic phase to identify the characteristics and complexity of the malocclusion and its impact on facial form. Based on the specific needs and desires of the patient, we design a personalized treatment plan, providing a clear explanation of the treatment strategy, estimated time, and cost involved. The placement of braces is done in subsequent appointments, involving orthodontic and dental records, impressions, and the fitting of braces. Throughout the active orthodontic treatment, we continuously monitor progress and make necessary adjustments.
Once the course of active treatment is complete, patients typically wear retainers to maintain the teeth in their improved positions while allowing the surrounding bone to reform. Retainers are comfortable and generally worn full-time for a specific period, ranging from a few weeks to a few years, depending on individual needs.
