INVISALIGN ® Invisalign® is a popular treatment for teens and adults to help move teeth without traditional wires or brackets. Treatment consists of a series of 18 to 30 clear, custom-made, removable tray aligners for the upper and lower teeth that are replaced approximately every two weeks. Benefits of Invisalign® include the ability to brush and floss normally with no wires or brackets in the way, aligners are removable allowing you to eat what you like, and you don’t have the look of traditional braces but still achieve the same outcome. Invisalign® cannot be used for more severe orthodontic cases, and typically costs more than traditional braces. What to Expect - click here
EARLY CHILDREN ORTHODONTICS Early orthodontic treatment takes advantage of the time when young children’s bones and muscles are growing rapidly. This allows the dentist to influence growth and perfect the bite, accomplishing things that cannot be done as easily as the child ages, and prevent future bite problems. Early orthodontics can correct or prevent an unbalanced profile, overbite, under-bite, cross-bite, deep bite, open bite, overlapping or crowded teeth, difficulty chewing, open mouth breathing, speech problems, tongue thrusting, thumb sucking and jaw joint problems.

Dr. Macdonald treats me and my family as very special people. We have been coming here since the 90s. Oral health is so important and Dr. Macdonald and his team stress prevention. Always keeping us as first priority caring about fears and pain levels. I can´t imagine having anyone else work on my mouth.

I like coming to see Dr. MacDonald because... You give me surprises and a toothbrush and a pencil or a ruler and sometimes a toy so they can see your teeth and make them clean with that bubblegum stuff and tell you how to take care of them a lot. Ryan
Looking After your Dentures You need to care for complete and partial dentures as carefully as you would look after natural teeth. Clean them every day. Plaque and tartar can build up on false teeth, just like they do on natural teeth. Take them out every night. Brush your teeth and gums carefully, using a soft toothbrush. Be sure to clean and massage your gums. If your toothbrush hurts you, run it under warm water to make it softer OR try using a finger wrapped in a clean, damp cloth. Soak them overnight. They can be soaked in a special cleaner for false teeth (denture cleanser), in warm water or in a mix of warm water and vinegar (half and half). If your denture has metal clasps, use warm water only for soaking. Soaking will loosen plaque and tartar. They will then come off more easily when you brush.
I like coming to see Dr. MacDonald because... First of all, I like getting out of school but I like xyxyxyxy to try to fix my teeth. I like the people who work here because they are nice and they have first service. I like it here because you can have fun playing before you go. Brad
