HEALTHY, CONFIDENT SMILES AT ANY AGE
Regardless of our age, we’re all entitled to have a smile that we can be proud of. Today, approximately one in five orthodontic patients are adults – so it comes as no surprise that the majority of the patients at Hometown Orthodontics are also adults. Orthodontic treatment, even at later stages in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem, in addition to positively contributing to your dental health. We all know that there is no comparison to natural, healthy teeth that will last you a lifetime. Aligning teeth through orthodontic treatment permits better oral hygiene, which in turn helps to prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and bone loss. A proper bite also helps to prevent abnormal wear of tooth surfaces and sometimes improves jaw and joint pain.
Having treatment as an adult herself, Dr. Virdee is quite sympathetic about the concerns that you may have with orthodontic treatment. We know that you want orthodontic care that is discrete, comfortable, painless, efficient and most importantly, fast. We also know that you have a busy lifestyle, and may not always have the time for frequent appointments. Good news! We offer state-of-the-art techniques and appliances that are designed just for you and your busy lifestyle. These appliances are less noticeable, reduce discomfort levels, decease the frequency of visits and get you in and out of treatment quickly so you can LIVE, LAUGH, SMILE everyday!
The best part of your orthodontic journey at Hometown Orthodontics is that Dr. Virdee will be with you every step of the way. Unlike other offices, Dr. Virdee sees you at every visit, ensuring that all of your questions and concerns are addressed so that you can feel confident that you are getting the best care possible. In addition, Hometown’s knowledgeable and caring staff will help to ensure that your experience at Hometown Orthodontics is comfortable and enjoyable so that you leave looking forward to your next visit with us.
There’s no reason to be self conscious about those crooked teeth or the gaps between your teeth any longer. Whether you’re in the Greater Sudbury area or the Oakville area, let us help you get the confidence and pride that comes with straight teeth and a great smile!
No one needs to know you’re straightening your teeth! Hometown Orthodontics takes pride in using a modern treatment approach to give you the confident, youthful and healthy smile you have always wanted – without the use of traditional braces. Dr. Virdee’s philosophy is that almost every patient can be treated with Invisalign. So it comes as no surprise that Dr. Virdee is the leading provider of Invisalign for adults and Invisalign Teen in Sudbury. In fact, more than 75% of our adult patients are treated using Invisalign.
Invisalign aligners are a series of trays that fit over your teeth and are custom-made for your mouth only. These trays are made of smooth, comfortable, virtually invisible plastic material that gradually shift your teeth into their proper positions. The convenience of Invisalign therapy means that it has minimal impact on your lifestyle. The trays are clear so you don’t have to be self-conscious about how you look – hardly anyone will notice that you’re wearing them. Since the aligners are removable, you can brush and floss normally and eat all your favorite foods. Have a date? Going to a big event or celebration? Having family photos taken? No problem – you can take your Invisalign trays out and smile!
While we love to see you, the best part of Invisalign is that you’re spending less time at the orthodontist’s office. The smooth, comfortable plastic aligner material won’t irritate your cheeks and gums and there are seldom any parts that break or need replacement so there are virtually no emergency visits. Since you will be given a series of trays to change regularly, the frequency of visits with us will be limited to approximately every 8-12 weeks. This means that you will have more time to LIVE, LAUGH, SMILE.

Clear or Ceramic Braces
Ceramic braces (also known as “clear braces”) are one of the best aesthetic alternative to traditional braces. These braces look and function the same way as traditional braces with the exception that they are virtually clear or tooth-coloured. They are fast and efficient and give you a healthy, confident smile without the attention that metal braces may give. Ceramic braces are just one way that Hometown Orthodontics strives to deliver you the latest technological advances in orthodontic care in Sudbury and Oakville.
Self Ligating Braces
Self-ligating braces are unlike conventional braces that require tying or ligating the wire with a rubber tie to the bracket itself. Self-ligating braces have a smooth metal door that helps to hold the wire in the bracket and, unlike a rubber tie, allows free movement of teeth along the wire. Ultimately, this results in less discomfort, faster overall treatment, shorter adjustment appointments, less frequent visits to the orthodontist and better oral hygiene. Self-ligating brackets are another way that Hometown Orthodontics delivers the best that orthodontic care has to offer.
Lingual Braces (3M-Incognito)
Unlike conventional braces that are bonded on the front of your teeth, lingual braces or hidden braces are bonded to the back of your teeth. Because they are completely hidden, no one can really tell that you are wearing them – unless of course you tell them! Using CAD/CAM technology, the braces and wires are engineered and manufactured exclusively for your teeth. This means that treatment is more efficient and generally, the overall treatment time is shorter. Lingual braces are also comfortable because they are custom-made to fit the contours of your teeth and since they’re made of gold, they’re also a great choice for patients with nickel allergies.
Dr. Virdee is the only orthodontist in the Greater Sudbury area certified to treat patients with lingual braces. So if you really don’t want anyone knowing you’re straightening your teeth – she’s the orthodontist of choice!
At Hometown Orthodontics, we make a commitment to introducing some of the latest, state-of-the art technologies that have sound, scientific backing in treatment effectiveness and safety. Acceledent® is the newest orthodontic device that we are pleased to offer to our patients. Currently, Hometown Orthodontics is the only orthodontic practice in the Greater Sudbury area offering this technology. Acceledent uses SoftPulse TechnologyTM to generate micropulses or tiny vibrations that help remodel bone and accelerate tooth movement. Acceledent can complement conventional braces or Invisalign. The results show that tooth movement is accelerated by 106% during the initial stages of treatment and up to 50% during the later stages of treatment. This means you can be in and out of treatment in no time at all!
How does AcceleDent Work?
AcceleDent is easy to use. All you have to do is insert a mouthpiece around your existing braces or Invisalign aligners and turn on the Activator for 20 minutes per day. Not only does accelerating tooth movement get you to the finish line faster, AcceleDent has also been shown to make your orthodontic journey more comfortable. AcceleDent has been approved for use by Health Canada and the US Food and Drug administration. So sit back, relax, use Acceledent while you’re watching TV, reading a good book or relaxing on the beach and let the gentle vibrations of AcceleDent accelerate your smile and confidence. LIVE. LAUGH. SMILE!
