The goal of all Orthodontic treatment is to correct any misalignment of your teeth and jaw. At Lippitt Dental, we provide NW Calgary Orthodontics for those requiring correction for their teeth or jaw alignment. Orthodontics has come a long way since wire braces were first introduced. It now includes a wide variety of Orthodontic treatment options including traditional wire braces, dental appliances, and now Clear Invisible Braces. Traditional wire braces often left patients self-conscious about their smile, now with clear braces, being self-conscious about your smile is no longer a necessity.
Clear Invisible Braces such as Invisalign have revolutionized Orthodontic care. When you schedule your Orthodontic consultation, your dentist will identify the orthodontic option that best suits your needs. Please contact us today to schedule your complimentary orthodontic consultation to learn more about your treatment options.
Orthodontics treatments are considered a safe and effective way of treating teeth that are misaligned. Orthodontic treatment can be used to correct crowded teeth, spaced teeth, crossbite issues, and other orthodontic problems. Well-aligned teeth will allow you achieve optimal dental health and function and make a great first impression!
By using orthodontic treatments such as clear braces, this can also benefit your overall oral health. By having properly aligned teeth, this can help prevent future dental issues like tooth decay and gingivitis, especially since brushing and flossing become easier. Also by improving any bite irregularities, you may have can also aid in your ability to chew and speak clearly.
The length of orthodontic treatment varies for each patient. The treatment length depends on the severity of your particular orthodontic concerns.
The short answer is NO! There is literally no age limit to wanting to have a perfect smile and bite. Yes, it is ideal that orthodontic cases are treated earlier in life. However, many adults are taking advantage of current treatment options that were not available in previous years.
Orthodontic treatment should be relatively pain-free. While some patients do report a temporary discomfort with each new arch wire, this typically goes away after just a couple of days.
This necessity is typically quite rare, so depending on your individual case, teeth extraction may be necessary to make enough room for your treatment to work properly. However, this will be thoroughly discussed with you by your dentist.
If you feel your child might require orthodontic care, we suggest booking a complimentary consultation. Treatment requirements all depend on the development stage of your child’s teeth, which progresses differently for each person.
