Give Your Teen a Winning Smile
Does your teen avoid smiling because they don’t like their teeth? An adolescent’s smile can actually have a profound effect on their self-esteem and even impact their social skills. We know that our teens are super conscious of their image. Just look at the number of selfies they take, and how much time they spend liking, commenting and sharing their friends’ photos on Snapchat, Facebook and Instagram. That’s why when teens come to Smiles in Motion for orthodontic treatment, we want to be sure we have options to ensure that their confidence stays high while their smile improves.
Through orthodontic treatment (either with traditional braces or Invisalign) Dr. Singh can correct genetic issues including crowding, spaced teeth and protruding upper teeth. He can also address cases including improper bites due to thumb-sucking as a child, periodontal disease, poor dental hygiene, early or late loss of primary teeth or even trauma to the teeth from a sporting injury.
The other good news is that adolescence is the optimal time to rectify orthodontic problems since teens haven’t yet finished growing. Early correction of orthodontic problems frequently takes less time in treatment and is less costly when compared to correction of dental problems that have been allowed to progress into adulthood.
Improving and encouraging your teens’ self-esteem is one of our core values at Smiles in Motion. It’s one of the big reasons why we offer Invisalign (besides the fact that its excellent technology that allows us to create confident, healthy smiles). In fact, a study by Invisalign confirms that “people with straight teeth are perceived more likely to be happy” … we hope all our patients are leaving our practice happy after each and every appointment.

Dr. Shakti Singh completed his residency in Orthodontics at the Faculty of Dentistry, University of Toronto, becoming a licensed Orthodontic Specialist in Ontario in 2015. Originally, from New Delhi, Dr. Singh was an outstanding student accumulating numerous awards and achievements, including the Indian Dental Association Scholarship for a 1st place standing in the final year dental exams. Dr Singh immigrated to Canada and in his quest to become a dentist, he cleared the Canadian Dental Board Examinations in one go. He ranked first (throughout Canada) in the Assessment of Fundamental Knowledge exam administered by the Canadian Dental Board in 2012.
As a young dental student he was always fascinated by the “magic” done by orthodontists and their ability to move teeth and the huge psychosocial impact it caused in patient’s lives. He knew early in his dental career that he could make a positive impact on patients lives by practicing Orthodontics.
