Orthodontist Alain Chaumont: where kindness and orthodontics meet

Orthodontics is a speciality of dentistry that focuses on the diagnostic, the intervention and the treatment of dento-facial anomalies, also known as dental malocclusions. A malocclusion is misalignment of the upper arch in relation to the lower one. Missing, crooked, crowded or protruding teeth can contribute to malocclusions.

An orthodontist is a highly qualified specialist with expertise in teeth and jaw alignment for children, teenagers as well as adults.

With his long-standing know-how for over 30 years, Dr. Alain Chaumont and his team warmly welcome you to their orthodontic clinic in Laval. His approachable, attentive and efficient conduct towards his every patient is at the heart of his practice.

Why opt for orthodontic treatment

Misalignment, overlap or protrusion can affect the overall appearance of your teeth and the function of the mouth. Orthodontic treatments not only improve your smile, but also your health, because well aligned teeth are easier to brush and therefore less prone to cavities and wounds. The teeth are brought to their desired position using fixed or removable braces which work by slightly exerting pressure on them for several months or years.

What are the stages involved in orthodontic treatment?

Every orthodontic treatment is unique and includes its own personalized steps for each patient. Nevertheless, treatment plans are established based on the following steps:

  • An initial consultation (dental exam, including x-rays and photos)
  • Diagnosis
  • Orthodontic treatment
  • Retention period

The importance of using an orthodontist

An orthodontist is a certified professional exclusively practicing this specialty of dentistry. To be an orthodontist, one must have obtained a dentistry degree and then have completed a 2-3 year full time postgraduate specialization in orthodontics, at a university recognized by the Ordre des dentistes du Québec and by the Royal College of Dentists of Canada. An orthodontist is therefore the most qualified dental practioner to identify and evaluate your orthodontic problems and then advise you on an appropriate treatment plan.
