Airdrie Dental Braces

Your Airdrie Choice for Dental Braces!

What are Braces?

Dental Braces are devices that are used to straighten and align teeth and help position them while also aiming to improve dental health. Braces also help fix gaps, correct underbites, crooked teeth, overbites, open bites, deep bites and various other flaws of the teeth and jaw.

Why Do You Need Dental Braces?

Misaligned teeth often lead to more problems than just the aesthetics of an embarrassing smile – they can also lead to receding gums, difficulty maintaining basic dental care, and increased risk of cavities, among a variety of other potential troubles. As such, in cases of misaligned teeth, straightening your teeth using orthodontic braces may be the right thing to do. With ever-increasing dental awareness today, adults have a plethora of options available when it comes to dental braces to straighten teeth (and possibly enhance their career and improve self-confidence!).

We look forward to hearing from you soon. Call North Main Family Dental at (403) 980-0056 to set up a new Dental Braces appointment today!

What type of Dental Braces are there to choose from?

  • Ceramic Braces
  • Invisalign (Invisible Braces)
  • Traditional Metal Braces
  • Golden Metal
  • Self-ligating Brackets
  • Lingual Braces

There are many choices available today, and it can get confusing! Which type of braces should you choose? Can you choose, or is it strictly up to your dentist? Fortunately, traditional metal bands have been replaced with brackets that are bonded with an adhesive right to the front of the teeth. They are much more comfortable, smaller in size, and much less noticeable.

The type of braces you need depends on several factors, including:

  • The extent of your treatment, such as:
  • The severity of your bite or extent of tooth malalignment
  • If extractions are necessary
  • If jaw surgery is necessary
  • If headgear or other special appliances are necessary
  • The amount of time you will need to wear braces
  • The preferences of your dentist or orthodontist
  • The costs associated with treatment options
  • How long you will be in braces to correct your problems
  • What you personally desire

You must ask yourself whether you will feel embarrassed in metal braces and whether you are only willing to straighten your teeth if Invisible Braces (Invisalign) is used. Do you prefer the look of ceramic or sapphire? Or do you not really care what the braces look like, as long as the outcome is good? There are many factors to consider! At North Main Family Dental, we are proud to provide a variety of dental braces to treat a variety of issues. We will provide you all the available options and information, and if necessary, we will refer you to our Orthodontic Dentist. We look forward to hearing from you soon, so we can help you on the road to the smile you have always dreamed of!
