Orthodontics & Functional Orthopedics in Ottawa, Ontario

At the Rideau Dental Centre we offer comprehensive orthodontic and orthopedic treatments for you and your little ones. Misalignment, overcrowding, and bite problems are just some of the many issues that orthodontic treatment can fix to create a healthy gorgeous smile.

The first step of orthodontic treatment is functional orthopedics which involve using short-term removable oral appliances, such as retainers, to promote a healthy development of the teeth and jawbone areas. Because children’s facial structures are still developing, we can use these oral appliances to guide their development to create a healthy smile. Functional orthopedics can help to prevent negative outcomes like overcrowding and mouth breathing.

If your case is more complex, orthodontic treatment may be recommended to align the teeth into optimal alignment. This involves placing braces onto the teeth to gradually shift them into place. Braces give the dentist more control to create the perfect smile. Depending on your child’s case, orthodontic treatment can last for several years.

We offer a variety of orthodontic treatments including full braces, partial braces, and even invisible braces. We’ll personally work with you to ensure that you and your loved ones to achieve the results that you desire.
