Braces and Orthodontics
At Bridge Street Dental Centre we treat patients of all ages with misaligned teeth. Aside from cosmetics, straight teeth are healthier and easier to keep clean. Orthodontics also help to correct poorly aligned jaws and unfavourable bite positions. We offer a variety of treatment options to help you achieve your orthodontic goals.
When should my child be evaluated?
At Bridge Street Dental Centre, our doctors use the latest technology and training to properly diagnose and treat orthodontic cases. Early intervention can potentially prevent permanent tooth extractions, surgery, speech problems, and trauma. It is important to start evaluating children as early as possible.
Invisalign or Clear Aligners
Invisalign is a way of straightening your teeth without the look of the traditional metal braces. It involves wearing a set of removable clear trays called aligners that will slowly and comfortably realign your teeth.

Early Orthodontics and Functional Appliances
At BSDC we understand the importance of preventive care. This includes monitoring your child’s growth and development. We can treat issues of crowded teeth, bite problems, and abnormal facial development with early orthodontic treatment. This helps to prevent more severe problems in the future that would be more difficult to treat. Functional appliances are important to prevent things like bite problems, underdeveloped jaws, crowded teeth, deep overbites, airway problems, and thumb-sucking habits.
