Patients arrive at our orthodontic office with a wide range of concerns about the way their mouths look and feel. As your orthodontic care team in London, ON, we take our responsibility of finding the right orthodontic solution for your needs very seriously.
We’ve provided brief descriptions of some of the specialized treatments that we provide for more complex orthodontic needs – over and above typical braces and clear aligners.

Surgical orthodontics is a method of treatment that empowers orthodontists to mitigate highly complex and severe orthodontic cases that may include distorted bites, malocclusion, and jawbone abnormalities. These specialized orthodontic treatments may also include oral and maxillofacial surgery that looks more specifically at craniofacial issues.
Dentofacial Orthodontics extends beyond the treatments most people are familiar with when it comes to orthodontic care. This is because dentofacial solutions involve resolutions for facial growth and development challenges. Our Orthodontists at Wonder West Orthodontics in London, ON are specially trained to support patients with these issues by providing specialized orthodontic appliances, such as expanders.
Orthodontic Appliances We Offer Include:
- Space Maintainers
- Specific Orthodontic Apparatuses
- Removable Space Maintainers
- Jaw Repositioning Appliances
- Lip and Cheek Guards
- Palatal Expanders
- Removable Retainer
- Permanent Retainers
This type of specialized orthodontic treatment may precede traditional metal braces, or the patient may only require the former, but we will support you to make the right decision throughout your orthodontic treatment program to ensure you’re getting exactly the type and level of care you need.
Craniofacial orthodontics involves the treatment of orthodontic issues that have been caused by congenital defects. Most commonly, these include cleft lip and cleft palate. When addressing these types of defects, Wonder West Orthodontics will collaborate with and encourage you to seek support from speech pathologists, ENT, oral surgeons, and craniofacial plastic surgeons. This extensive orthodontic team is important because the effects of craniofacial deformities extend beyond aesthetic appeal, and if left untreated, may affect your child’s development.
Patient families who are hoping to treat their child’s cleft palate will be fully supported by the orthodontic team at Wonder West Orthodontics to ensure you have access to the expertise described above.
