A beautiful smile doesn’t last without proper bite correction and tooth alignment. That’s why our orthodontic office specializes in treating the complete chewing system. We believe that proper alignment is important, not only from a cosmetic point of view, but also a healthy chewing system is important to the longevity of your smile.

Unhealthy Vs. Healthy Chewing

Your chewing system is made of several components including your jaw joints, the associated muscles and your teeth. In a healthy chewing system, these elements work together favourably, so your teeth meet evenly when you close your jaw with your jaw joints properly aligned.

An unhealthy chewing system (shown) involves an unfavorable relationship between the jaw joints and the teeth during closure. If your jaw joints are not aligned properly, your teeth may not fit together perfectly, often resulting in clicking sounds and joint deterioration.

To correct your bite, Dr. Bianco mounts models of your teeth on an instrument called an articulator (shown). The articulator is indispensable in studying the relationship between the teeth and the jaw joints. It allows Dr. Bianco to review how the teeth and bite interrelate. A treatment plan can be customized based on these findings. The result is a beautiful smile and healthy, stable jaw joints.

What some of our clients have to say

Read All Testimonials

"I am 46 years old and I just want to say “it's never too late!” Both my sons have beautiful smiles after their treatment and I thought “it's my turn.” I am very happy with my 19 months of “fun.” "Thank you to a wonderful, professional team!"

- Wendy D.

"The first time I had braces top and bottom. Recently, I decided to have the bottom front straightened again as I really hadn't followed instructions properly, regarding wearing my retainer at the end of treatment. This only took about eight months and now I'm wearing a retainer for about four months.
PS. May I mention I am 84 years old. You are never too old!"

- Eleanor S.

"The technicians are excellent at what they do, and Dr. Bianco is the total perfectionist! And there is always a happy receptionist when you first go through the doors at every appointment. Dr. Bianco's experience and expertise can truly be seen in my daughter's smile."
