Teeth alignment problems are not only a cosmetic consideration—they can also contribute to issues such as gum disease, tooth decay, difficulty chewing, jaw pain, and headaches. At Creekside Dental, Vancouver dentist Dr. David Hanson will monitor for potential tooth and bite alignment issues. Early detection—and, if necessary, intervention—will correct problems, and can often mean shorter and less extensive treatment regimens.
Orthodontics are an important adjunct to the services Dr. Hanson provides at Creekside Dental. Proper alignment and spacing of teeth is fundamental to the successful outcome of many of the cosmetic and functional restorative procedures we provide. Modern orthodontics can often be done with less visible and more comfortable appliances than in the past.
