At Scotia Square Dentistry in Edmonton, we offer traditional metal braces, Invisalign® clear aligners, and retainers to help you achieve a straighter smile.
Metal braces have been the go-to method for straightening teeth for decades. In recent years, advances in orthodontic treatment have resulted in braces that are low-profile, more comfortable and easier to care for.
Traditional metal braces can effectively treat a broad range of orthodontic cases, spanning from mild to severe.
Braces apply continuous pressure to the teeth over a period of time, slowly moving them into their new, corrected positions.
As pressure is applied and the teeth move, the bone changes shape to accommodate their new positions.
Our Edmonton dentists are proud to offer Invisalign clear orthodontic aligners.
Invisalign aligners are removable, transparent, and a convenient option for adults and teens looking for a low-profile orthodontic treatment option.
A retainer is a custom-fitted oral appliance that helps teeth maintain their new position after braces have been removed or you have completed Invisalign treatment. Retainers can also be used to treat minor orthodontic problems.
Retainers are typically made of rubber or clear plastic and metal wires that cover the outside surface of the teeth. The time frame for wearing a retainer will vary from patient to patient.
