Protruded, crooked and crowded teeth can cause discomfort, especially while talking and brushing. If you have overcrowded teeth or a misaligned bite, consider getting braces. At GD Orthodontics, we believe that everyone deserves to possess a beautiful smile. We can help you enhance your confidence with our high-quality braces in Mississauga. Apart from aesthetic reasons, braces enhance the way your teeth function. They improve your long-term oral health by changing how you chew and spread the bite’s pressure evenly across your teeth.
We provide a range of orthodontic treatments to target various problems in both adults and children. Our braces are of high quality and are meant to target your unique requirements. To learn more about our braces in Mississauga, please speak to us.
Your bite is directly related to the placement of the teeth and jaw. Crooked or misfit teeth causes bad bites. This makes the chewing process hard and might cause your teeth to wear down. Braces are used to put pressure on your teeth so that they take the right position for easy cleaning and a healthy smile.
Braces are installed by attaching brackets to each tooth using glue. Then arched wires are inserted into the brackets, which are held by rubber or wire ties.
Once braces are fixed make sure you don’t strain your teeth too much. For it can damage the brackets. Certain must-avoid actions include:
Do not eat hard food items such as ice cubes or nuts
Do not chew the ends of pencils or pens
Avoid chewing gums or toffees
Although braces are more common in children to promote the healthy development of teeth and correct abnormalities, there are orthodontic treatments for adults as well. Our treatments, such as Invisalign®, are becoming increasingly popular among adults. The most important requirement for receiving orthodontic treatment is having healthy teeth and gums. If you’d like to learn whether you can benefit from braces, please schedule an appointment with us.
There is a common misconception that those who play sports can’t wear braces. Wearing a mouth guard while you play sports will help protect both your teeth and your braces.

The time duration depends on the severity of your orthodontic problem and the type of braces. Generally, patients wear braces approximately for 12 to 30 months as per the treatment goals.
