Braces Treatment in Rexdale
this singular vision ensures that we provide our patients with the most current and comprehensive care.
For those (children, teenagers, or adults alike) that are looking for a more traditional treatment option for straightening their teeth, Love Trees Dentistry is pleased to offer metal braces and ceramic (clear) braces.
Though considered to be traditional braces in their appearance, at Walt Orthodontics, we use the most innovative and groundbreaking technology to provide our patients with the most up to date and relevant treatment methods – even for our “traditional” braces patients.
Here’s everything you need to know and what to expect when you embark on your braces smile journey.
Your First Appointment
At Love Trees Dentistry we do our best to make your first braces appointment quick, and easy. The procedure itself is painless and lasts for about one hour. There are no needles or freezing done. Feel free to bring some music to help pass the time and don’t forget to brush and floss before you come. If you don’t have a chance we will make sure your teeth are nice and clean before we begin.
We will then insert some cheek stretchers to keep your mouth open and dry, as well as your tongue in place. We will dry your teeth and apply a gel to make the tooth surface ideal for bonding.
Next, the braces will be placed on your teeth using a special orthodontic adhesive. A curing light will be used to harden the adhesive and set the bond. Finally, we will run the wire through the brackets and clip or tie it in place. Kids love to pick colours to decorate their braces and we have lots of colours to choose from.
We will go over all the instructions on how to care for your braces and what foods to avoid.
