At Williams Lake Smiles, braces, arch expanders and plastic retainers are utilized to straighten teeth and provide a healthier, more attractive smile.

Braces and other orthodontics will help to reduce the risk of decay, eliminate excessive wear, straighten teeth and help to create a beautiful smile to increase your confidence and self-esteem.

Orthodontic Evaluation

Before any orthodontic procedure occurs, our dental experts will meet with you for an evaluation appointment. Dr. Wassenaar will first visually determine if you are a good candidate for orthodontic treatment, or if another treatment would be more appropriate. If orthodontics are required, we will take impressions of your teeth, special x-rays of your jaw joint, head and teeth, and specific measurements of your teeth and mouth.

When should My Child be Evaluated?

Typically, children should be evaluated by the age of 6 for orthodontic treatment. However, if your child has developed an “open bite”, contact the team at Williams Lake Smiles right away.

Through new innovations and techniques in orthodontics, many problems can be corrected early in childhood. This can shorten the time period for braces or even entirely eliminate the need for braces in the future.

Oral Surgery | Root Canal Therapy | Wisdom Tooth Extraction | Dr. Rudy Wassenaar

Dr. Wassenaar is very experienced in performing precise, pain-free dental surgery on patients experiencing distress caused by crowding, extensive decay, tooth trauma, or gum disease.
