Orthodontic Treatment

Traditionally, orthodontic treatment is done using metal braces, clear braces, invisible braces, Invisalign clear braces, or other systems like these.

The purpose of straightening teeth is to improve your smile and put your teeth in the proper position so that they will be pain free, easier to clean, and last your entire life.

You should visit an orthodontist for a consultation if you want to know what system will work best for you. Every tool that is used to move teeth has advantages and disadvantages. It’s always best to find the solution that will make treatment easiest for your lifestyle.


Metal Braces

Traditional braces are silver braces. They have been around for more than 100 years and every orthodontist learns how to move teeth with this appliance.

Metal braces straighten your teeth using metal wires. The braces are glued onto your teeth and you have to see the orthodontist regularly to have the wires changed.

We have to teach you how to brush and floss because this is more difficult in braces. The number 1 risk of braces is cavities and gum disease due to poor oral hygiene.

There are also food restrictions because food can break your braces and get stuck around them.

Traditional metal braces are still used by more orthodontists today than any other orthodontic appliance.


Clear Braces

Calgary, clear braces are the best solution for people who like the idea of traditional braces but want them to be less visible.

They straighten teeth in the same way and come with the same advantages and disadvantages. They are more subtle as you transform your smile.


Invisalign Clear Braces

When speaking about clear braces, people often mean Invisalign invisible braces (clear aligners). Invisalign treatment is, in fact, a clear way to move teeth into a new position.

Invisalign braces are removable, unlike traditional braces, meaning you take them out of your mouth for brushing and flossing and to eat.

They are to be worn for 22 hours a day and are created in a series. Each individual aligner is slightly different than the previous one. They move your teeth gradually and gently for your entire treatment.


Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign aligners are custom made to straighten your teeth. We take a 3D picture of your teeth and then use the software to design a program to give you straighter teeth.

Everyone is a good candidate for Invisalign invisible braces if they want to be able to eat their normal diet. There are no food restrictions because there is no where to get food stuck and nothing to break. Your favorite foods are all ok because you simply remove your Invisalign clear aligners every time you want to eat.

Oral hygiene is also easier in Invisalign treatment. Invisalign trays are removed to brush and floss, so there are no changes to your current routine with this treatment option.


Invisalign Process

Invisalign clear aligners are fabricated from a 3D scan we take of your teeth. Crooked teeth are turned into straight teeth with the magic of technology.

A set of aligners is then made for you based on the plan that the doctor designs for the movement of your teeth. You will wear each aligner for one to two weeks. You will likely have multiple sets of Invisalign trays.

Your Invisalign treatment is custom made and custom designed to get you stunning results. 

Everyone is a good candidate for Invisalign braces. Invisalign is simply a tool that helps your orthodontist move your teeth.

All types of bites can be corrected with Invisalign clear aligners – you just need an orthodontist that has experience correcting that type of bite with them.


Invisalign Cleaning System

Keeping your Invisible braces clean means brushing them with your toothbrush and toothpaste every time you brush your teeth. You can also soak them in a denture or retainer cleaner and warm water or a mixture of 50% water and 50% vinegar.


Calgary Clear Braces Cost

All of our dental services are priced according to the Alberta Dental Fee Guide.

Clear braces do not cost more than any other appliance. The cost is based on the time it will take and the complexity of the treatment. If you want your teeth straightened, you can pick the appliance. Regular braces, Invisalign, and ceramic braces will all result in a beautiful smile and good bite.
