Teeth were made to stand up straight. This is how they were engineered. When teeth are lost in your mouth the remaining teeth will shift and usually tip. This will inevitably shorten the life span for these tipped teeth. That is why it is sometimes advisable to straighten these tipped teeth before replacing the missing teeth. To straighten these missing teeth, some orthodontics is usually required. We work with some of Ottawa’s leading orthodontists to put into place a team approach to rehabilitating your mouth.
