Orthodontics in Fort Saskatchewan
An orthodontist is a specialist trained to align your teeth and jaw, which includes treatment to straighten your teeth and fix any concerns with your bite pattern. Malocclusions, or teeth misalignment, can be the result of accidents, injuries, or just how the teeth and jaw grow. Malocclusions aren’t just a matter of cosmetics; they can cause pain or discomfort when chewing or biting. They can also cause speech problems and contribute to low self-esteem. We want to help you achieve a smile that looks and feels amazing.
Invisalign is the most advanced clear aligner system currently available. It remains the top choice for patients who wish to avoid wearing traditional braces but still wants an effective treatment. Instead of using metal brackets and wires, a series of clear, plastic trays slowly reposition the teeth. In most cases, Invisalign works faster than traditional braces and is more comfortable.
Clear Aligner Therapy
Clear aligner therapy is an alternative for patients who wish to avoid traditional braces. Instead of using metal brackets and wires, a series of clear, plastic trays is used to slowly reposition the teeth. Clear aligner therapy can be just as effective as traditional braces, and often the treatment time is similar.
While many advances have been made in orthodontic treatment, traditional treatments remain the most common. Braces not only improve the aesthetics of your smile but the function of your teeth as well. Orthodontics can play a vital role in oral health by helping to properly align your teeth and jaw.
A form of 3D-printed custom clear brackets, LightForce Brackets are similar to traditional orthodontics except that each bracket is custom-made and printed from a proprietary material. Custom-fitted brackets mean that your orthodontic treatment is tailored specially to your smile goals and needs.
Most dental work happens in a dental office. However, there are also treatments that you can do from home. Dental appliances, such as retainers, can be custom-made to fit your teeth perfectly. With these appliances, you can maintain your oral health wherever you are, even when you’re sleeping or playing sports.
