Orthodontic Technology in Mississauga & Thornhill
Some dental conditions such as crowding, openbites, overbites, and underbites require orthodontic intervention that involves the moving of teeth. When moving teeth around in the mouth, it is beneficial to have an anchor point to secure the teeth in order for the procedure to be successful and to avoid further serious treatment. In the past, these anchor points were often limited to headgear and other appliances. Dr. Eugene Kholov and Dr. Jocelyn Abi-Nahed, of Orthodontically Yours offers microimplants in Mississuaga, ON, & Thornhill, ON, as an effective solution to malocclusions.
Microimplants are tiny, biocompatible titanium screws that are embedded into the jaw bone to help secure teeth in place after they need to be moved. They are relatively new to North America, although they have been used throughout the last 25 years in Europe and Korea. Their ability to mirror the shape and size of the natural tooth root makes them a particularly effective treatment, especially when paired with more traditional treatments such as braces or Invisalign. The patient is given anesthesia, and then the microimplants are inserted. The procedure is relatively quick and painless, and any discomfort usually only lasts for a day.
