Orthodontics

 

Here at Main Street Dental Centre, we provide several different orthodontic solutions to many different concerns.  Below, you will find some examples of some of the treatment we have provided in the past.  Orthodontic treatment can be provided to patients ranging from ages of 7 to 70.   So, it may not be too early or too late to have orthodontic treatment done, contrary to past philosophies!

 

Please note that in orthodontics, how the upper and lower jaws relate to each other is crucial for treatment solutions.  There are 3 types of relationships (which will be outlined in each case presented):

1. Class I - Upper and lower jaws are positioned in an ideal relationship with one another

2. Class II - Lower jaw is behind upper jaw which often results in overjet/overbite

3. Class III - Lower jaw is ahead of upper jaw and lower teeth often in front of upper teeth as a result
