Braces are not just for Children Anymore! Orthodontic Treatment for Adults

Braces are not just for Children Anymore! Orthodontic Treatment for Adults

Dr. Pocock offers orthodontic treatment for adult patients, parents of the kids he treats and even grandparents. A lot of people are saying “I am finally finished putting my kids through orthodontics and I still don’t like my smile. My folks couldn’t do it for me but maybe it’s my time to do it now.”

With the new techniques available, Dr. Pocock can make it a lot easier. For example, for an average case where a couple years ago we would have said you need full braces for a couple of years, nowadays we could probably do it with Invisalign appliances so you don’t have visible braces and using our accelerated techniques we could probably get treatment done for the average adult in about 12 months.

It therefore makes it far more feasible for adults to consider having orthodontic treatment now, it’s far less daunting a prospect. So, if any of you have been thinking about it and you’d like to see what’s involved please give the office a call at 604-983-2132 and come in and have a free consultation. We will be happy to explain the options to you!

What is a TENS machine and Why Should You Care?

What is a TENS machine and Why Should You Care?

Dr. Pocock has picked up another device that can help his patients. It’s a special TENS unit that allows us to make orthodontics more comfortable.

Usually after patients have had an adjustment or we’ve changed a wire, their teeth might be a little bit sore for a while after words. To directly address this problem, we now have this new little unit called a TENS machine that we can use.

We simply rub it over the gums and around the teeth that we have just adjusted and it takes any discomfort away. It’s a very cool device and it takes almost no time at all to get relief from pain. We simply just rub the device over the gums for about 10-15 seconds and it makes the treatment far more comfortable.
