Thank you for Voting us Favorite Orthodontist (Dr. Melissa Sander) 2011, 2012 & 2013 in the Hamilton Community News.
Our specialist will be able to determine the best treatment approach for yourself or your child after an initial complimentary consultation. Your child may be placed on a monitoring schedule every six to nine months to observe the development of the jaws and eruption of the teeth. NO Referral is necessary.
The Canadian and American Associations of Orthodontists recommends that children visit an orthodontist for an assessment no later than age 7. Many orthodontic problems are easier to correct if detected early taking advantage of the remaining jaw growth. Treatment at an earlier age typically reduces the need for extensive corrections later on during the teenage years or adulthood. In some instances, more complex treatment such as extractions or surgery may be avoided.
Approximately 50% of our practice are adults receiving orthodontic treatment. We appreciate that some people do not want to wear the traditional metal braces. To make your treatment as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, we offer clear orthodontic options including Invisalign (clear aligners) or Clear braces.
