Teeth Straightening in Medicine Hat

Gaslight Dental provides comprehensive dental exams and can evaluate if orthodontic services for teeth straightening is recommended.  Conventional or comprehensive orthodontic treatment is generally defined as corrective treatment that begins in your teenage or adult years and is completed in just one stage, whereas two-phase orthodontics begins in childhood and is an ongoing process.  Dr Richardson at our Medicine Hat office is a trained preventative Healthy Start appliance provider that can sometimes help lessen the need or decrease the length of time in comprehensive braces.  Correcting damaging habits early, at a young age can improve the ability for teeth to come into the correct position.  Habits such as thumb sucking, tongue thrusts, mouth breathing and nighttime grinding can affect our children's development of their jaws and teeth.

Dr. Richardson assists patients wanting to improve the quality of their smiles. From front teeth bonding to clear retainers, our clinic is pleased to sit down and review all of your corrective options.
