Orthodontics & Invisalign® in Estevan
Having a straight smile is as good for your oral health as it is for your confidence. Crooked or overcrowded teeth are at risk of damage to the enamel, leaving them more susceptible to tooth decay and infections. In more extreme cases, the inability to clean your teeth or chew properly can create more problems. Take a look at the orthodontics solutions we provide that can straighten out your crooked smile. Consults at Scotsburn Dental are complimentary.
Traditional metal braces are a budget friendly option that require more of a time investment to complete. Small brackets are glued to your teeth in strategic places with a metal wire running through each. Little by little, your dentist will tighten the wire over a period of months or years to gradually pull the teeth into alignment.
Invisalign® Clear Aligners
If you’re looking for a faster treatment option that’s virtually invisible, Invisalign® might be the solution for you. With Invisalign®, your dentist will take a digital mould of your mouth and create clear aligner trays that are designed to gently push your teeth into straighter alignment. You’ll wear these aligners for 20 hours a day with the option to remove them for cleaning, brushing your teeth, or taking photos.
Every couple of weeks your dentist will create a new set of aligners that push your teeth even more until they are eventually straight.
