Orthodontics & Orthopedics in Kitchener, ON
Rockway Dentistry offers comprehensive orthodontic treatment to help you and your family achieve a straight healthy smile. The first step of orthodontic treatment usually involves orthopedics, which uses short-term temporary oral appliances, such as retainers, to promote healthy jaw and tooth development. Orthopedics is aimed at children since their jawbones and teeth are still developing and can help to prevent negative outcomes, such as overcrowding and mouth breathing.
In comparison, orthodontics uses long-term oral appliances, such as braces, which are placed onto the patient’s teeth. These are semi-permanent which means they can only be removed by the dentist. Braces effectively align your teeth into optimal position and give you a straight, beautiful smile. Contact us at Rockway Dentistry in Kitchener to set up an appointment today.
