Align Your Smile
Malaligned teeth? Overbite? Crossbite? If your oral health is affected by any of these concerns, you may need an orthodontic treatment.
Braces have long been a staple of orthodontics for their ability to correct a range of concerns in both children and adults. By helping you achieve straighter teeth, our team at Fairlawn Dental Centre can make it easier for you to manage your oral health and enjoy the smile you deserve.

Why Have Braces?
Braces are an orthodontic treatment designed to help correct a range of issues like:
- Overcrowded or crooked teeth
- Open bites
These issues can make it harder to clean your teeth properly and introduce several issues associated with a bad bite. When you have a bad bite, you can develop jaw problems and increase the risk of experiencing a dental emergency.
Frequently Asked Questions
If you need braces, we’ll create a personalized orthodontic treatment plan unique to your needs. Because everybody’s teeth and oral health are different, the strategies we use can vary between patients. For example, we may combine braces with other strategies like retainers or oral surgery to ensure your teeth and bite are aligned properly.
When you come in for your consultation appointment, we’ll perform a comprehensive dental exam to look at the issues we might need to address and determine which strategies may be most suitable for your oral health. Please feel free to ask any questions or stress any concerns you might have during your appointment.
By understanding and addressing your needs, we aim to provide a comfortable, results-focused experience.
How Long Do I Need Braces?
Orthodontic treatments are multi-stage processes that generally require about 2 years to complete.
However, timelines ultimately depend on the issues we’re addressing and how severe they are.
Can Adults Wear Braces?
Adult braces are becoming more and more common as people look for more permanent answers to their oral health concerns. However, if you’re looking for a more discreet way to straighten your teeth, we could offer Invisalign™ as an alternative to the traditional braces process.
How Do I Clean My Braces?
When you get your braces, we can provide you strategies so you can properly brush and floss your teeth. However, we’ll still recommend regular dental exams and cleanings to help preserve your oral health.
Certain foods can potentially damage your braces, like:
- Hard or sticky candy
We recommend avoiding these foods whenever possible.
There’s More than Beauty in Symmetrical Teeth
Straight teeth not only look great, but can help preserve your oral health throughout your life.
