Orthodontics Braces

Early And Interceptive Orthodontics For Children

Early orthodontic evaluations by an Airdrie dentist might help prevent later, more complex orthodontic requirements. Teeth and jaws can be adjusted using Phase One or Interceptive braces to help your child form a healthy bite as they grow.

Invisalign For All Ages 6 - 80 Years

Clear, removable aligners require little maintenance. Simply take them out to eat, floss.

Damon Braces (Self-Litigating)

For moderate to severe tooth misalignment, conventional brackets, and wire systems are sometimes the best option. But that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice comfort and style!

The “trap door” mechanism used by Damon braces eliminates the need for wire ligatures or bands, which lessens the pressure on your teeth. Additionally, they are also available with ceramic brackets, which can complement your smile more naturally.

Looking For An Orthodontic Provider In Airdrie?

Our Airdrie Invisalign braces are great for people who don’t want others to notice that they are wearing braces because they are nearly invisible.

Here at our family dental practice, Airdrie Springs Dental, we provide orthodontics and braces for adults, teenagers, and children. You can choose from the full selection of braces options that we offer.

What are braces and how do they work?

Braces are used to correct crooked teeth. Unlike traditional ones, braces do not attach to the teeth themselves, but rather to the gum line of your mouth. They typically take about nine months to fully straighten crooked teeth.

How do braces work?

Straightening your teeth takes place by applying consistent and designed pressure on your teeth. This pressure can be from a physical wire, or in the case of invisible braces, from a tightening of the gum tissue around your teeth. This pressure gradually changes the shape of your smile over time, so that it is no longer crooked and can function properly.

Types of Orthodontic Braces

Invisalign is suitable for a variety of dental conditions. These include:

Ceramic Braces - orthodontics

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic or clear braces are orthodontic appliances used to straighten teeth and correct bite issues. They are made out of rubber bands and clear or tooth-colored wires that are affixed to the surface of your teeth, giving them more discretion.

Lingual Braces

Lingual Braces

These include placing orthodontic brackets on the interior surface of teeth.

Invisalign Braces

Clear aligners like Invisalign

Clear aligners/ Invisalign are orthodontic appliances that are a clear plastic alternative to traditional braces that are used to straighten teeth.

Benefits of Wearing Dental Braces

A straight, evenly spaced smile can lower your chances of:

  • dental decay
  • gum disease
  • TMJ dysfunction
  • deteriorated, fractured, chipped, and restored teeth

Your teeth can function more effectively the better they can occlude (bite) together. You’ll find it simpler to maintain and clean your smile if there is less crowding or misalignment.

FAQs on Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontic treatment can cause some discomfort and soreness, especially when braces are first placed or tightened. However, this usually goes away within a few days. Over-the-counter pain relievers can help to manage any discomfort.

During active treatment, you will typically need to visit your orthodontist every 4-6 weeks to have your braces or aligners adjusted. This allows your orthodontist to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.

You will double your daily treatment time if you only wear your invisible aligners at night., For example, a treatment plan that you were supposed to finish in a year has suddenly grown to take two years, and maybe much more, if you don’t wear the aligners during the daytime

While you can still eat most foods during orthodontic treatment, there are some foods that should be avoided or eaten with caution to prevent damage to your braces or aligners. These include hard, sticky, or chewy foods, as well as sugary or acidic foods and beverages.

It is important to practice good oral hygiene during orthodontic treatment to keep your teeth and gums healthy. This includes brushing and flossing regularly, using fluoride toothpaste, and avoiding sugary or acidic foods and beverages. You should also follow any specific care instructions provided by your orthodontist.

The cost of orthodontic treatment varies depending on the type of treatment and the severity of the problem. In general, braces are more affordable than clear aligners. Many dental insurance plans cover at least part of the cost of orthodontic treatment, and financing options are available to help make treatment more affordable.

Yes, most patients will need to wear a retainer after orthodontic treatment to maintain the results. Retainers may need to be worn full-time for a period of time, and then gradually reduced to only at night. Your orthodontist will provide specific instructions for wearing and caring for your retainer.
