Treatment Options

Does the word "braces" make you think of train tracks? Fortunately the advances made in modern orthodontics means that there are several treatment options available today.
 

Metal Braces

Self ligating Braces

Our metal braces don't require elastics to hold wires in place, but you always have the option to have fun and add a little colour!

Our office uses innovative SPEED braces. These are like traditional metal braces, but they have a special "super-elastic" metal clip that is designed to deliver precise, yet gentle and continuous forces to your teeth. Unlike the elastics that are required to hold wires into traditional braces, the special metal clips do not fatigue over time. Even better, these braces are typically about 1/3 smaller than traditional braces which results in less food trapping and easier hygiene. The end result is a precise, comfortable, and efficient treatment!


Ceramic Braces

Our "clear" braces combine the esthetic benefits of ceramic with the advantages of a self-ligating system!

For those patients preferring a more subtle and aesthetic option, ceramic braces are the clear choice. You can still take advantage of the benefits of self-ligating technology, combined with the transparent look of braces made with a specialized ceramic.

 

 


Invisalign®

Invisalign® is a system made of tailor-made, clear aligners that can replace traditional or ceramic braces in the right cases. The aligners are made of smooth, almost invisible plastic that will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place. The aligners are changed approximately every two weeks - patients love the convenience, comfort, and ease of oral hygiene that this type of treatment can provide.
