The Road to Straighter Teeth Starts Here
Regardless of the orthodontic issues you or your child are experiencing, we’re here to help your family achieve a straight, beautiful, healthy smile.
We offer a variety of orthodontic treatments and are happy to personalize our process based on your family’s needs, no matter their age or lifestyle. In some cases, we may also recommend a functional appliance to help support our treatments, which can sometimes reduce the time needed to achieve straighter teeth!
Find out if a functional appliance can support your family’s orthodontic needs and book an appointment today!
What Are Functional Appliances?
Functional appliances is an umbrella term that describes any appliance we may use to help support your orthodontic treatment. These appliances use the muscles in your mouth to help realign your teeth and jaw while you speak, chew, and swallow.
These appliances can include:
- Twin Blocks
- Function regulators
These appliances may be fixed or removable. In some cases, we’ll recommend a functional appliance treatment before putting on braces, but we could still use them during the orthodontic process.
Book an Appointment Today
Functional appliances can help a range of alignment problems and take significant time off the length of orthodontic treatments.
If you or someone in your family is struggling with their teeth or jaw, book an appointment at Fairlawn Dental Centre today to discover how we can help start the process towards a straighter, healthier, and more comfortable smile today!
