Orthodontics and orthopedics are two disciplines within the field of dentistry that aim to correct the alignment and symmetry of the teeth. Orthopedics are usually a preliminary phase that is exclusively used with children who have significant growth potential remaining. Once the bone structures are fully developed, orthopedic intervention is no longer possible, and further corrections can be made with orthodontics. The goal of orthopedic treatment is to optimize the relationship of the upper and lower jaws, typically using removable prosthetic appliances.

At RiverEdge Dental, we offer customizable orthodontic treatments at our family dental clinics in Bradford, Keswick, and Orangeville. Patients can choose between traditional wire and bracket braces or Invisalign® aligners, also known as “clear braces.” The goal of orthodontic treatment is to correct misaligned teeth by moving them into their optimal functional and aesthetic position.
