At Quince Orchard Dental Specialists, we believe that a healthy mouth translates to a healthy life. Our practice centers around the provision of high quality, professional and personalized dental services from our friendly, competent dentists. Whether you’re a child, teenager or an adult, you need strong, healthy teeth to chew your food, speak and smile. We are here to take care of your best feature, your teeth, whether natural or synthetic.
Orthodontics is the branch of our dental practice that deals with the correction of teeth that are crooked, irregularly positioned jaws, and teeth that generally don’t fit together properly. Our qualified and experienced orthodontists and support staff are here to help you transform your smile. We provide metal braces, made of stainless steel or titanium brackets that are attached to the teeth using a special type of super dental glue.
While there are many options available, traditional metal braces are generally the least expensive and most common type of braces used for orthodontic treatment. They are made of high quality titanium or stainless steel. A special material is used to cement them to the teeth, and then they are connected by an archwire. The archwire, in turn, is held into the braces by an elastic tie, also known as an “o-ring”, and includes different colours that make them fun for children and adolescents. At every appointment, this ring is changed. However, some metal brackets don’t require the elastic tie; these are called “self-ligating braces”.
The aim of our orthodontic practice is to optimize the health and function of your teeth. Our Orthodontist, Dr. Hagan, can address all of your needs such as crowding, spacing, an improper bite, and can help improve facial esthetics. Dr. Hagan and our highly trained dental team are dedicated to ensuring that you have the best orthodontic care in the most comfortable setting. Through the use of advanced and appropriate dental technology, we guarantee the highest level of orthodontic treatment and diagnostics, to produce the finest, most stable results. We encourage you to come in to our office to find out how we can help you achieve the healthy, beautiful smile you deserve.
