Orthodontics In Airdrie, AB - Grace Family Dental
At Grace Family Dental, we offer general orthodontic services for patients looking to fix the structure of their smile. Our Airdrie office performs in-house orthodontic procedures, and uses a variety of methods to correct bite positions and realign smiles.
We treat tooth movement with appliances such as:
- Metal braces are the most common way to improve the positioning of teeth, and involve connecting the targeted teeth with metal brackets. On average, patients wear their braces for 1-3 years, and acquire a retainer after their braces are removed.
- Palatal expanders are used to widen the upper jaw so that the bottom and upper teeth will fit together better. Expanders are most commonly used in children, as the frequent movement of their teeth makes wearing the device more comfortable. Expanders are usually followed by braces in order to fully straighten teeth.
- Clear aligner therapy involves a series of clear, removable retainers that patients wear to improve the alignment and bite position of teeth. The retainers are customized to fit a patient’s mouth, and gradually move teeth in a more discreet manner than metal braces.
