Orthodontics Waterloo & Kitchener

Orthodontic Dentistry or Dental Braces Waterloo & Kitchener

Dr. Lee offers comprehensive orthodontic treatment to ensure your child has a healthy smile. As part of your child’s first visit, we will check to ensure that your child’s teeth and erupting properly and that there are no issues with their bite or the growth of their jaws or face.

While orthodontic treatment often starts when the child is between 10 to 14 years old, it can start earlier depending on the case and the particular needs of the child.

As a first step, we may recommend functional orthopedics which involve using retainers or other removable oral appliances to promote optimal tooth, facial and jaw growth. This can prevent future complications, such as tooth overcrowding and bite problems, which can be more difficult and costly to treat the older the patient gets.

Orthodontics may include dental braces or other appliances that are placed onto the child’s teeth. These are semi-permanent, meaning that only your dentist can remove them. However, these appliances give your dentist more control to adjust the teeth into optimal alignment.

And if clear braces are what your child is looking for, we also offer Invisalign Teen, which allows your child to straighten their teeth without feeling self-conscious.

 

Orthodontics for Adults

 

Dental braces aren’t only for kids! Adults can achieve a straighter healthier smile too. We offer a variety of tooth straightening options including traditional braces and Invisalign. We will carefully examine your mouth and determine your needs to create a treatment plan to achieve the perfect smile.

 

Invisalign Invisible Braces

 

Dr. Lee offers Invisalign invisible braces, which uses a series of clear plastic aligners that gradually shift your teeth into alignment. The aligners can be removed prior to eating or brushing so you can continue with your daily routines without braces getting in the way.

 

The biggest feature of Invisalign is that it allows you to straighten your teeth without invisibly to others. The clear plastic material blends in with the rest of your teeth so you can feel confident speaking, chewing, and smiling without feeling self-conscious about your smile.
