We Welcome ALL New Patient’s — Call For Your FREE Consultation!

Dr. Angela Sharma is a provider of Orthodontics for Children in South Calgary. At McKenzie Orthodontics, we believe that it is never too late to start orthodontic treatment!

Early Orthodontic Screening

Dr. Sharma and the American Association of Orthodontics recommends that all children should have an initial orthodontic screening by age 7 in order to monitor your child’s growth patterns and to watch for the early indication for orthodontic treatment.

Preventative South Calgary Orthodontics

Preventative orthodontics are used to intercept orthodontic concerns before they become more of a concern as your child continues to grow. Two-Phase Orthodontics is a very common practice and minimizes the impact concerns with the bite, and alignment may have.

Preventative South Calgary Orthodontics are used to correct problems such as:

  • Thumb Sucking
  • Misaligned Teeth
  • Narrow Dental Arches
  • Tongue Thrust Problems
  • Protruding Teeth
  • Open Bites
  • Cross Bites
  • Crowding of the Teeth
  • Uneven Upper and Lower Jaws

Two-Phase Orthodontics for Children

Two-Phase Orthodontics for Children is a specialized orthodontic process that involves two phases of treatment — with the first phase beginning when your child still has remaining primary (baby) teeth, and the adult teeth are beginning to erupt into the mouth. Phase two treatment begins once all of the adult teeth have erupted into the mouth. The goal of two-phase treatment is to act as an intervention, to prevent future complications and invasive treatment down the road.

In addition to the structural benefits of Two-Phase Orthodontics for Children, some of the other improvements that are achieved include:

  • More space for the proper eruption of the permanent teeth
  • Increased Self-Esteem
  • Correction of Facial Symmetry
  • Straighter Teeth
  • Improved Chewing and Better Nutrition
  • Less chance of Dental Decay
  • Less chance of periodontal (gum) disease in later life
  • Improved Speech Development

Our practice always welcomes new patients – no referral is required!
