Straighten Your Smile At Any Age
Dr. Hill-Johnston offers Invisalign ® and is a “Preferred Treatment Provider” by Invisalign ®
Most people are not born with perfectly straight teeth. In fact, many people you see walking around with beautiful smiles will attest to having had braces at some point in their lives. Straightening your smile with orthodontics will not only improve your appearance, it will improve your overall health.
Teeth that are properly aligned are easier to clean, making it harder for plaque to hide in crevices. Improving your bite will also create more flattering facial features, which can be disrupted by irregular bites.
Dr. Hill-Johnston has extensive training in early childhood, adolescent, and adult orthodontics. She strongly believes in early diagnosis and interceptive treatment allowing for the most conservative treatment and achieving the most ideal results.
Orthodontics for children
By the age of seven, most children have a mix of baby teeth and adult teeth, making it easier to diagnose and correct tooth and jaw problems sooner and without surgery. Early treatment allows our team to:
- Correct and guide the growth of your child’s jaw to help the permanent teeth come in straight
- Regulate the width of the upper and lower arches
- Create more space for crowded teeth
- Avoid the need for permanent tooth extractions later in life
- Correct thumb sucking and help improve minor speech problems
Orthodontics for Adults
Orthodontic treatment is no longer just for teens. In fact, the Canadian Association of Orthodontists cites that one in five orthodontic patients is over the age of 21. Many adults are choosing to receive treatment because they understand the importance of maintaining their health, and they want to feel better about their appearance. Adults everywhere are taking advantage of the opportunity to receive orthodontic care in Niagara-on-the-Lake and now you can, too.
