A straight, healthy smile can help you enjoy better oral health and much more. Not every patient has a naturally straight smile, though. That’s why our Prince Albert office offers services like Invisalign and traditional braces. With them, we can help teens and adults achieve results that will help them enjoy better health and confidence throughout their life.
For many patients, the best way of achieving a straight smile is with traditional braces. Over the course of your treatment, your braces will bring your teeth into their ideal position, giving food, bacteria, and plaque fewer places to hide and improving your confidence. Whether you’re an adult or the parent of a young teen, Dr. Janzen and Dr. Wilson would be happy to talk with you about the benefits of traditional braces.
Patients who are looking for a cosmetic braces system will want to ask us about Invisalign. This popular service creates beautiful results using clear, nearly invisible trays instead of metal brackets or wires. What’s more, your Invisalign trays are removable, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods without fear. You can also brush and floss like you normally would.
When the muscles of the face are not working together as they should, this can place pressure on the teeth that causes them to slowly shift from their ideal position. Myofunctional therapy is a collection of exercises that are designed to increase the strength of the tongue and muscles of the mouth and throat. These can improve chewing, breathing, and swallowing function as well as help maintain the proper alignment of a patient’s teeth.
Orthodontics are more than just an investment in your confidence because a straight smile creates many other benefits in addition to higher self-esteem. Instead, they also improve your oral health to reduce your risk of common issues, like tooth decay and gum disease. Not to mention, correcting your bite and alignment concerns can also improve your quality of life. Whether you or your teen need braces, we know you have several questions before you’re ready to commit to a treatment. We’ll take the time to address them during your initial consultation. In the meantime, here are the answers to some of the most common questions we’re asked.
It is recommended children have their first orthodontic consultation around the age of 7, but it’s never too late to schedule an appointment for your child. Adolescents and teens can benefit from braces to give them the straight, healthy smile they need to head into adulthood with confidence.
If you missed your chance for braces as a child or you’ve suffered orthodontic regression, you’re never too old for braces. In fact, 1 in 5 orthodontic patients is over the age of 18. We offer the solutions busy adults like yourself need to achieve their dream smile, such as Invisalign.
There isn’t any way to determine how long it will take without first performing your initial consultation. There are various factors that influence the duration of a treatment, like the method used to move your teeth. On average, Invisalign offers quicker results than metal braces; however, it depends on the severity of your case. People who have complex needs often require a longer treatment than someone who only requires minor adjustments. We’ll explain how long you can expect the process to take and what you can do to ensure there aren’t any unnecessary delays in your plan.
There isn’t a set fee for braces because their cost is based on your specific treatment plan. We’ll provide you with a custom estimate during your initial consultation and explain the costs associated with your plan. A member of our team will explain your payment options to help you achieve a properly aligned smile without breaking the bank.
Every policy differs, but most dental insurance companies offer orthodontia coverage. A member of our team will work on your behalf with your insurance carrier to file the necessary forms to maximize your annual allowance. We will take the time to explain how your benefits are being used to pay for your treatment and if you owe a remaining balance.
If you or your child need orthodontics, we have the solutions for you. Contact our office today to schedule a consultation. We’ll help your family achieve the straight, functional smiles they deserve using the latest innovations in dentistry.
