Orthodontic treatment is an important aspect of dental health that can help people achieve a healthy, functional, and attractive smile. There are different types of treatments available, including LightForce braces and Invisalign.
In Ontario, orthodontic care is provided by licensed orthodontists who have completed specialized training beyond dental school. It is important to do your research on your orthodontic provider. Review their credentials, experience, before and after cases, and make sure you feel comfortable working with them.
If you are waiting around for a referral from your general dentist – you may be missing out! Fortunately, anyone can go into an orthodontic office. By doing some research and utilizing little-known secrets, such as free consults, employer insurance plans, and personal health insurance plans, you can easily access orthodontic care in Ontario without a referral.
It is important to note that orthodontic treatment isn’t suitable for everyone, as eligibility depends on factors such as age and the severity of dental or facial irregularities. If you are not familiar with orthodontics and the warning signs, it will be difficult for you to know if you or your child require treatment.
