If you are looking for excellent orthodontic treatment in Toronto, Dr. Norma Chou, Orthodontist, is here to help. Dr. Chou explains some of the dental problems that she can fix with the proper orthodontic treatment plan.
Openbites, underbites, overbites and deep overbites – Dr. Chou specializes in the correction of all four Dr. Chou suggests that these problems are seen early when some can be corrected without as much difficulty and without surgery. The fix usually requires braces, special appliances and/or retainers.
Crowding of the teeth - This usually occurs when the teeth are too big for the size of the jaws. There may also be extra teeth, a condition called hyperdontia. Dr. Norma Chou often treats serious crowding and /or hyperdontia by removing some teeth and aligning the rest with braces.
Crooked teeth – The fix will improve your overall dental health, allowing you to clean your teeth more easily. Dr. Chou uses braces (metal or clear ceramic), clear aligners, and retainers to straighten crooked teeth.
Gaps or spaces – You may not consider a gap between the front teeth a problem at all, but if you want to close it Dr. Chou can use braces to move the teeth together. A special glued-in retainer helps to keep the space closed.
Clenching or grinding your teeth – Grinding your teeth is called bruxism. Stress is one of the causes. Misaligned teeth or sleep issues can also be culprits among adults (among kids, causes can include allergies). Bruxism can give you headaches, a sore jaw and cracked or loose teeth. If you grind your teeth at night, Dr. Chou can fit you with a mouth guard. If it is a daytime problem, meditation, exercise or other ways to curb stress help.
If you have any of the above tooth problems please contact Dr. Norma Chou in Toronto at 416-532-3041, and schedule an appointment to discuss orthodontic treatment. Keep smiling!
