Get a Straight Smile with Metal Braces

Everyone deserves to have a straight, beautiful smile, but few people have naturally aligned teeth.

Thanks to modern advancements, treatment plans can now be less noticeable without compromising their success.

Why Choose Legacy Dental for Orthodontics?

What are Traditional Braces?

Let’s face it, traditional braces have a bad reputation for being painful and noticeable. You might be surprised to learn, they aren’t as bad as you’ve been led to believe, which is why they are a common solution to treat a variety of bite and alignment concerns. They are effective for resolving overcrowded, gapped, tilted or rotated teeth, and poorly aligned bites.

A bracket is attached to specific teeth to hold an arch wire in place. Over the next 12 to 24 months, minor adjustments are made to the wire to gradually move your teeth into their ideal positions. Our office can serve patients of all ages looking to improve their smile with our in-office orthodontist in Prince Albert.

What are the Benefits of Braces?

Research shows the appearance of your teeth directly influences your self-esteem. It’s easy to feel insecure or embarrassed by their imperfections. Braces can give you a smile you’ll want to show off by giving your confidence a boost. Besides aesthetic benefits, you can also improve your oral health.

When your teeth are in the right positions, they are easier to clean, reducing your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. You also have less risk for dental emergencies, jaw pain, and uneven wear on your enamel. Overall, braces are an investment in your oral health and your quality of life.

What is the Process?

First, you’ll need to have an orthodontic consultation to create your customized treatment plan. Images, X-rays, and impressions are taken to map the movement of your teeth. With a plan in place, you’ll return to our office to have brackets applied to your teeth using a special dental cement. The arch wire is attached to the brackets and elastics are placed on them.

You’ll need to see your orthodontist in Prince Albert every few weeks to monitor the movement of your teeth while we also make minor adjustments to the arch wire. Before you know it, you’ll be finished with your treatment, and you’ll have the straight smile you’ve always wanted.
