Full mouth braces
The position of your teeth and jaws can affect your bite, tension, pain and even cause trouble eating. If you have an overbite, underbite, crooked teeth or misaligned teeth, braces effectively work to correct those problems over time. Crooked or misaligned teeth can also be harder to clean and can lead to more plaque and bacteria build-up.
What’s more, an imperfect smile can affect your confidence day to day socially and professionally. Our dentist may recommend braces so that these conditions don’t cause you further problems or stress in the future.
Braces align and straighten your teeth to improve your dental health and change the look of your smile for the better. Braces are typically made out of plastic, metal or ceramic and can last 2 years on average. Regular visits to the see us for adjustments and monitoring are necessary.

If you decide on this approach, our dentist will apply custom fitted braces with gentle pressure to straighten your smile.

Do you grind your teeth as the result of stress, a previous dental procedure or even out of boredom?
Bruxism is the technical term for grinding or clenching of your teeth, usually during sleep. The force inflicted from grinding can cause damage to your teeth and jaw over time, including previous dental work like fillings. Thankfully, there’s a solution to Bruxism, and Harbour Centre Dental can help! Custom fitted night guards can protect your teeth from the harmful effects of tooth grinding and improve your bite. Our friendly dentists will create a guard to fit perfectly over your teeth, preventing further damage from occurring when you sleep.
Different night guards are available, depending on your individual needs. If you feel like you might have the symptoms listed above, visit us today. Our dentists can evaluate whether you may be grinding your teeth and determine your individual treatment options. An important reminder that custom made night guards are not the same as the ones you can buy over the counter, say for use as protection in sports. However we can recommend a good option for protective mouth guards as well.
