Orthodontics & Orthopedics - Spanish Dentist Calgary

The most common dental or oral conditions that patients at Savanna Market Dental can often experience include having crooked teeth and a misaligned bite. Our dentist in Calgary, Dr. Amerjot Kler recommends orthodontic and orthopedic treatment as a solution to correct these issues and promote adequate facial growth. Orthodontic treatment is a branch of dentistry that deals with the correction of issues affecting the mouth and jaw. As a primary and short-term solution, orthopedic treatment is often used and suggested. Orthopedics is a treatment that falls under the orthodontic umbrella, where removable oral appliances such as retainers are used to allow adequate facial growth and ensure that teeth are aligned correctly. Orthopedics also helps in the prevention of any forthcoming dental issues like TMJ, sleep apnea, or protruding teeth. In contrast, orthodontic treatments are more comprehensive and require the use of long-term oral appliances that include braces or invisalign which are bonded to your teeth. 

 

Here at Savanna Market Dental, Dr. Amerjot Kler and her team of dentists in Calgary can determine if you require dental orthodontic or orthopedic treatments. This process begins with a thorough dental examination, where our dentists in Calgary use a variety of tools including x-rays and plaster moulds to determine a suitable procedure to correct your dental or oral conditions. Several dental issues such as an overbite or “buck teeth” which is when your upper teeth are protruding forward, an underbite which is when your lower teeth are protruding, spacing which are the gaps or spaces in between your teeth, and crowding of your teeth are key indicators that you are in need of an orthodontic procedure.
