Braces Calgary: Orthodontic solutions for kids, teens, and adults

straight teeth is not just about looks

Misaligned teeth can often lead to more problems than just embarrassing smiles – they can lead to receding gums, difficulty in maintaining basic dental care, and an increased risk of cavities, among a variety of other potential troubles. Thus, in cases of malocclusion (or misaligned teeth), adult or not, straightening your teeth using orthodontic braces may be the right thing to do. And now, with ever-increasing dental awareness, adults have a plethora of options before them when it comes to dental braces which could straighten their teeth and help to improve self-confidence!

So what kind of dental braces should you choose? Ceramic braces? Invisalign? Traditional metal? Golden metal? Self-ligating brackets? What about Lingual braces? These days, there are many choices available and it gets confusing – we get it!

All people are awesome!

Let's ensure your smile is too.


Getting to Know Your Braces

Today, orthodontic treatment is different

Fortunately, metal bands have been replaced with brackets that are bonded with an adhesive right to the front of the teeth. They’re much more comfortable, smaller in size, and much less noticeable!

The type of braces you need may depend on a number of different factors:

  • The extent of your treatment, such as:
    • The severity of your bite or tooth crookedness problems;
    • Necessary extractions;
    • Necessary jaw surgery;
    • Necessary headgear or other special appliances;
    • The amount of time you will need to wear braces.
  • The preferences of your dentist or orthodontist;
  • How much you are willing to pay;
  • The length of time necessary for the braces;
  • What you, yourself may desire!
If severe dental problems are causing you discomfort, you may be a good candidate for a full-mouth reconstruction. A well-qualified general dentist can combine the aesthetics of cosmetic dentistry with the science of neuromuscular dentistry to perform a full mouth reconstruction. Orthodontic appliances can be used to help properly position your jaw.

How are braces applied?

So you must ask yourself, would you feel embarrassed wearing metal? Are you only willing to straighten your teeth if Invisalign is used? Do you prefer the look of ceramic or sapphire? Or maybe you don’t have a preference, as long as the outcome is favourable?
