Early and Interceptive Orthodontics for Children
By assessing your child’s smile at an early age, we can help to limit more complex orthodontic needs later on. Phase One or Interceptive braces can position the teeth and jaws in a way that facilitate healthy bite formation as your child grows up.
Invisalign for Adults and Teens
Clear, removable aligners are easy to care for. Just take them out to brush, floss, or enjoy your favorite foods. Being that they’re designed to almost look completely invisible, our Airdrie Invisalign braces are great for people who don’t want others to know that they’re wearing braces.
Damon Braces (Self-Litigating)
Sometimes traditional bracket and wire systems are best for correcting moderate to severe tooth misalignment. But that doesn’t mean you have to give up style and comfort!
Damon braces use a “trap door” system that prevents the need for wire ligatures or bands, reducing the tension on your teeth. Plus, they even come in ceramic bracket options that blend in more easily with your overall smile.
Benefits of Wearing Braces
Having a straight, properly aligned smile can reduce the risk of:
• Tooth decay
• Gum disease
• TMJ disorder/TMJD
• Worn, cracked, chipped teeth and restorations
The healthier your teeth occlude (bite) together, the more efficiently they can work. Less crowding or misalignment also means that you’ll have an easier time caring for your smile and keeping it clean.
