Orthodontic Care For All Ages

Customized orthodontic treatment options by a Specialist



Orthodontic braces are bonded to your teeth in order to move them into the desired positions outlined in your custom orthodontic treatment plan. They work to straighten the teeth, as well as improve the patient's overall health through improved oral hygiene. Orthodontic braces are often made of metal, porcelain, or plastic. The composition will vary based on your diagnosis, and your treatment plan. 

The best thing about orthodontic treatment is that it doesn't exclude - anyone can pursue a healthy, better smile. There's a common misconception that braces are just for kids and teenagers, but more and more adults are making the switch. Adults even tend to take orthodontic treatment more seriously due to the expense and responsibility, meaning it's possible you may even get more out of it by pursuing it later in life. Explore our many orthodontic options for children, teens, and adults, and learn what you can expect from each treatment. 

Early Orthodontic Treatment

The Canadian Association of Orthodontists recommends children have their first orthodontic consultation at the age of seven. By this time, the first permanent molars and incisors have usually come in - this early phase of treatment is known as early or preventative orthodontics. 

Dentofacial Orthopedics

Also known as growth modification, dentofacial orthopedics involves guiding the facial growth and development in children. The goal is to achieve proper balance and structure of the facial bones and jaw, as well as any surrounding muscle and soft tissues. 

Orthodontics for Adults

Getting orthodontic treatment as an adult can actually do wonders for your overall health. Not only that, but a beautiful, healthy smile will definitely give you more confidence. 

Adult orthodontic treatment may help you avoid costly restoration down the road. Crooked teeth increase your chances of having plaque and food build up, and make it very difficult to properly clean your teeth.

Clear Braces

Although some people use this term to refer to Invisalign, clear braces are actually similar to the traditional metal braces you're familiar with, and work just as well. 

Unlike metal braces, these are made of ceramic and are white or tooth colored to help the brackets blend in to the natural shade of the teeth. The best thing about this ceramic is it's generally non staining, so your brackets will always be discreet. 

Surgical Orthodontics

This is intended to correct any jaw irregularities. These irregularities can affect your ability to chew, talk, sleep, and breathe. Surgical orthodontics, jaw surgery, or orthognathic surgery fixes all of these problems, while also correcting facial appearance. 

TMD Treatment

Your temporomandibular joints (TMJs) connect your lower jawbone to your skull. TMD occurs when there are problems with the muscles and jawbones in the face. 

Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea can prevent you from achieving deep sleep, potentially disrupting your everyday life. Treatment for sleep apnea depends on the type, and the severity of the case. Oral devices can be used to position the mouth in a way that prevents throat blockage. In more severe cases, surgery may become necessary.

Dentofacial Orthopedics


What is dentofacial orthopedics?

Dentofacial orthopedics, or growth modification, involves guiding the facial growth and development in children. The aim is to achieve proper balance and structure of the face bones and jaws, as well as the surrounding muscles and soft tissues.


What does the treatment involve?

Orthopedic treatment can take place with or without conventional braces. The orthodontist diagnoses and treats the teeth, jaws, bones, and surrounding tissues, bringing them into a harmonious equilibrium. While treatments depend on the individual, orthodontic appliances like jaw expanders, jaw positioners, or functional appliances are often used.


Orthodontic Braces for Adults


Getting orthodontic treatment as an adult can do wonders for your overall health, and your confidence. These two things often go hand in hand.

Bad bites like underbites and overbites and crooked teeth affect more than just children and teens, and if you're an adult with one or more of these problems, there's no need to feel hopeless, or like orthodontic treatment is out of the question. In fact, taking the reigns and fixing issues with your smile may end up saving you money down the road, as a straight smile now can help you to avoid oral hygiene issues and costly restorative procedures later in life. Crooked teeth can easily trap food particles and bacteria, which can lead to tooth decay if you're not careful. Straight teeth are far easier to clean, and have less potential to trap food for long periods of time. 

Misaligned teeth can also cause other issues, such as jaw shifting, an uneven bite (overbite and underbite), distribution of forces, which may lead to TMJ issues down the road. TMJ issues are notorious for causing headaches and pain. Teeth that are straight and correctly aligned may be less prone to getting cavities, chipping, becoming irregularly worn down, developing gum or bone disease, or experiencing gum recession. 

How Can Getting Braces Change Your Life?


  • Crooked and overlapping teeth are difficult to clean, which often leads to cavities and gum disease. Straight teeth are easier to clean so you can enjoy an overall prettier and healthier smile.
  • Eating normally is a challenge with crooked teeth. Accidentally biting your cheek or tongue, and hitting teeth together is a common challenge that is eliminated with straight teeth.
  • Neglecting crooked teeth early in life can have long term impacts on the health of your teeth which may eventually lead to the need for more drastic orthodontic and dental treatment.
  • A straight smile is a confident smile. Laugh, smile and enjoy life without worrying about crooked teeth.

My daughter (who is 3.5 years old now) has been to this office numerous times to see their Pediatric specialist. She is definitely not an easy child to please, but has done so well each time (did someone say Terrible Twos and beyond?!). I am so amazed by the genuine care and attention the staff and dentists have given us. I can't wait for my son's first appointment coming up soon! Definitely recommend if you are looking for the best care in town πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

Awesome office and staff! Highly recommend! I’m in my late 20’s and I was very embarrassed to get braces at my age, but I felt comfortable at this office, Dr. Saleh and his staff are very knowledgeable and take they’re time to listen to all your concerns. I’m 4 months into my treatment and it’s been a very good experience so far!

We had such a great experience here. My daughter is 2 and a half years old. I tried my best to prepare her for the dentist by showing her pictures of what the rooms would look like. It is great that there are themed rooms because it makes the kids excited to see the dentist. The staff were very friendly, Dr.Caldwell was great with my daughter! He is also a father and had a lot of relatable experiences with his child that he shared with us to give us advice on how to wean her off her soother. He was very pleased with her teeth and said to come back in one year for a follow up. This was a fun experience for both my daughter and I and I believe we found her perfect dentist match. Will be recommending and returning.
