Your braces won’t only perfect your smile, they will improve your health! Crooked and crowded teeth are difficult to clean, leading to accumulated plaque and possible tooth decay. Tooth decay can be painful, unsightly, cause bad breath, and affect your overall health. Luckily, our orthodontists practice modern orthodontic treatment to give you the healthy smile you deserve.
We offer 3 treatment options: metal braces, crystal clear braces or Invisalign.
Metal teen braces are the most common option and they can correct even the most complicated cases. Your orthodontist will attach metal brackets to each tooth and use a small wire to connect them all. Over time, the slight pressure from your braces will correct your teeth and move bones into proper alignment. You can even add some fun and colour to your braces with different elastics.
Crystal clear teen braces are a popular option for teens who want braces without the look. They work much like metal braces, but instead of a metal braces, our orthodontists will place crystal clear braces on your teeth. Your friends won’t even know they are there!
The length of time in treatment will depend on a number of factors:
- The complexity of your case
- Keeping your regularly scheduled visits
- No broken braces
- Wearing elastics or other appliances as recommended by the doctor
- Maintaining good oral hygiene
