Ottawa-Gatineau Orthodontists Alliance

Who is the best person to tell me
what type of Orthodontic work I need?

Only an orthodontist can fully determine
how you can best benefit from orthodontics.

Based on expert knowledge, additional post-graduate education as well as a wide variety of specialized diagnostic tools and procedures, a Certified Orthodontist can best decide whether orthodontic treatments are recommended, and develop a custom care plan that’s right for you or a member of your family.


Are you a candidate for Orthodontic Treatment?

If you have any of the following, you may be.

  • overbite image

    Sometimes called “buck teeth” — where the upper front teeth lie too far forward (stick out) over the lower teeth

  • underbite image

    a “bulldog” appearance where the lower teeth are too far forward or the upper teeth too far back

  • crossbite image

    when upper teeth are too far towards the cheek or tongue in relation to the lower teeth

  • open bite image

    space between the biting surfaces of the front and/or side teeth when the back teeth bite together

  • spacing image

    gaps, or spaces, between the teeth as a result of missing teeth or teeth that do not “fill up” the mouth

  • crowding image

    lack of space for all teeth to fit causing teeth to be rotated or displaced

  • misplaced midline image
    Misplaced midline

    when the center of your upper front teeth does not line up with the center of your lower front teeth
