The Classic Way to Straighten Your Teeth

Metal braces have been used for decades to guide teeth into place, correcting cosmetic alignment and bite problems. They are glued onto the surface of your teeth, attached with wires, and tightened slowly every 6-8 weeks to move your teeth into place. While braces in Calgary are still a popular option, we offer Invisalign as a gentler and more discreet alternative to traditional braces.

For Kids

For Kids

Younger patients are often especially nervous about braces. Invisalign First is an ideal braces alternative for children under 10 to provide early and preventative orthodontic care. Invisalign allows for easy maintenance and does not restrict any foods.

For Teens

For Teens

Teens are often self-conscious about their appearance. Though they can effectively reduce crowding or improve bites, braces in themself can provide a source of insecurity. Alternatively, Invisalign aligners are discreet and can be worn during almost any activity.

For Adults

For Adults

By the time they reach adulthood, most people are unwilling to make the lifestyle changes required by braces. Invisalign is effective at aligning teeth and fixing bites, offering a seamless transition and fitting within the busy lifestyle of most adults.

About Braces in Calgary

Why Choose Invisalign

Less Soreness & Zero Risk of Cuts

The metal wires of traditional braces are prone to irritate the cheeks, lips, and tongue. Invisalign, on the other hand, uses aligners to guide the teeth gently into the desired position. Because the trays are made of smooth plastic, there is no risk of cuts or bleeding.

More Discreet & Less Maintenance

Braces create the “metal mouth” effect leading children, teens, and adults alike to be self-conscious about their appearance. Many patients choose Invisalign in Calgary over braces because they are so much more discreet. In addition, Invisalign trays require less maintenance than the brittle wires and brackets of braces.

No Forbidden Foods & Less Risk of Cavities

Conventional braces easily trap food, increasing the risk of cavities if they are not cleaned properly. Braces can also break off from eating sticky or hard foods, resulting in an emergency visit to the orthodontic office. Invisalign aligners can be removed while eating, so you can eat whatever you want!

While clear braces can be more discreet than metal braces, they work the same way. Clear or invisible braces involve clear brackets that are glued onto the teeth and attached to wires. Invisalign, on the other hand, consists of clear plastic trays that change every few weeks as the alignment progresses.

Each individual provider determines the cost of braces. As such, orthodontics vary in price. Some orthodontists charge the same fees for braces and Invisalign, while some charge more for Invisalign and some charge more for braces. At Impact Orthodontics, we offer Invisalign as our preferred way to straighten teeth.

Many people believe that plastic is not strong enough to move or align teeth. However, it requires significantly less pressure than most people think. Invisalign is very effective at guiding teeth into the desired position. The aligners work by pushing on the teeth consistently throughout the day, and as each tray is exchanged for a slightly different set, the small changes work to move the teeth gently into place.

Elastics are used in orthodontics to change how the teeth touch each other. Elastics may be used to move your lower teeth forward to your upper teeth, move your upper teeth backward to meet your lower teeth, move upper teeth down to meet lower teeth, or move lower teeth up to meet upper teeth. Dr. Jen and Dr. Dena will let you know if elastics are needed to correct your bite. Elastics attach to your aligners with the use of buttons or grooves.
