Dr. Donald E. Johnston has been practicing orthodontics for more than 20 years. He is a second-generation orthodontist, having grown up with orthodontics as a part of his life. As a child, Dr. Johnston witnessed how much patients appreciate their orthodontic treatment and the difference it makes in their lives, inspiring him to pursue orthodontics as a profession. He thrives on the time spent with his patients, and enjoys getting to know each individual as a person.
Orthodontists qualify first as dentists, then undertake further study to become specialists in malocclusions and the best methods to fix them. Malocclusions are the problems that are caused by alignment and bite issues, including overbites or cross bites. When left untreated, irregular bites and uneven jaw relationships can cause pain or discomfort. Beyond the daily discomfort, irregular bites often make people feel really self-conscious.
Seeking treatment for orthodontic issues can also have a number of benefits that you might not have even been aware of, like reduction in the chances of being diagnosed with lifestyle-related disease, and improved oral hygiene and general health.
Docbraces Truro offers patients of all ages the most technologically advanced orthodontic treatment options available including Invisalign.
Our team of Orthodontic specialists have a wealth of experience and an extra 150 hours of training to provide the highest standard of care.
As a Platinum Provider of Invisalign, Docbraces has helped over 800 people achieve beautiful smiles with Invisalign, placing them in the top 1% of Invisalign providers in North America.
What if you could have the smile you’ve always wanted in a truly discreet way with very little impact on your daily life? You can with Invisalign! Your smile is the best way to convey your emotions to the people around you, but when you’re hesitant to show it off because of bite, spacing or alignment issues, you’ll struggle to communicate how you’re really feeling. So many of Docbraces’ Truro Invisalign patients have commented how dramatically their lives have changed for the better just by wearing Invisalign. They’ve become much more outgoing and finally have the confidence to try something they’ve always wanted to do—like go after their dream jobs or be more active in social situations. If you’re self-conscious because of dental problems, speak to the Docbraces Truro and Area team to discuss how Invisalign can address these issues and give you the confidence you deserve!
We offer several comfortable, discreet, and affordable options for braces in Truro.
Clear braces are an excellent solution for anyone wanting to avoid drawing attention to their orthodontic treatment. At Docbraces Truro, we only use the newest in braces technology. Today’s clear braces are made out of a translucent ceramic material that does not stain and remains clear throughout treatment.
Damon Clear braces combine tieless braces with high-tech archwires that move teeth quickly and comfortably without the need for “tightening”, providing an attractive treatment experience with spectacular results. Like our clear braces, they are discreet and resistant to staining throughout treatment.
We also offer new friction-free braces as an option. Treatment using friction-free braces is faster, more comfortable, and makes maintaining oral hygiene much easier during treatment. The light, high-tech and special shape-memory wires move your teeth faster than conventional materials into the desired position, and require fewer adjustments. Friction-free braces use a mechanism which holds the wire, allowing your teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably. Depending on case complexity, it’s even possible that treatment times can be reduced by 4-6 compared to conventional braces, without the need for elastics or metal ties.
