Searching for an Orthodontist in West Airdrie? We Offer Braces!
Crooked, crowded teeth are difficult to get clean. If you are worried about misaligned teeth for you or your child, talk to your West Airdrie dentist about braces and orthodontics appliances without a referral to an off-site orthodontist.
Aren’t Braces for Kids?
Once the mark of children and teenagers, in recent times, braces and retainers have become popular with adults as well. There are options to make the treatments more discreet and unnoticeable. It’s never too late to straighten your teeth!
So What Are My Options?
There are three standard options for braces at West Airdrie Dental. Each has its benefits and is suited to different situations. They work by exerting a constant gentle force on your teeth to move them in the desired direction.
Metal Braces: These are what you probably picture when you think of braces- metal brackets with wires. They are attached to your teeth and will require periodic adjustment.
Ceramic Braces: Ceramic braces work just the same as metal braces, but are made with tooth-colored ceramics. They are less noticeable than metal brackets, but work in the same amount of time.
Lingual Braces: The ultimate in discretion, lingual braces are placed behind your teeth. You won’t be able to see them when you smile, and they will likely cause less discomfort than either metal or ceramics.
What About Invisalign?
Invisalign is a system of clear trays that gradually move teeth. You’ll change to a new set of trays every two weeks until your teeth have reached their goal. They are clear, nearly invisible, and easier to clean than traditional braces.
