Many people are born with imperfect teeth and teeth naturally grow in many different shapes, sizes and angles. Some have their teeth slowly moved out of position by growth in their youth. If you have crooked teeth, it doesn’t mean that they have to be crooked forever. Our Meadow Lake orthodontics have the ability to dramatically change the appearance of your teeth, improving your smile - and your confidence.
At Meadow Lake Dental, we offer traditional metal braces. A series of metal braces are fixed to the teeth. A wire is passed through these braces and tightened at various intervals of time to maintain a consistent pace of orthodontic fixing. The amount of time that the braces must be worn varies by the patient, so feel free to visit us and discuss this with a doctor.
We also offer the newer method, Invisalign. In this method, clear retainers are designed for the patient. These are worn as often as possible, but can be removed at the patient’s discretion. This gives the patient the ability to straighten their teeth without having to have braces fixed to the teeth. You will have to come into the office every 2 weeks to get a new set of aligners as your teeth slowly shift into position.
Braces are not just for the young anymore, they can be used by people of all ages. It's never too late to improve your smile.
