Adult Braces

Your Lethbridge Dentist

Are you considering getting orthodontic treatments for your smile? Braces for adults don’t have to be awkward. Here at Cool Dental at Lethbridge area, we offer discreet orthodontic devices to help straighten teeth.

Improve Your Smile Minus the Unsightly Metal

Crooked, misaligned, or crowded teeth aren’t cosmetic issues alone. These imperfections also affect your oral health. When your teeth aren’t properly aligned, they’re more difficult to clean. They’re also more vulnerable to tooth decay and gum disease.

You can also experience chewing and swallowing issues as your upper and lower teeth don’t come in contact with each other properly. This can also result in speech problems. And since your teeth are working harder than they should, this can also lead to premature wear and facial pain.

If you’re thinking about getting an orthodontic treatment to correct these issues, the process may take longer than it is for children as your bones are already developed. The good news is that you aren't confined to the ‘obvious’ choices.

Types of Dental Braces

  • Ceramic Braces. These braces work like traditional metal braces but they come with clear brackets. This makes them less visible and ideal for adults. In some cases, the wires can even be made tooth-colored to make the device even less noticeable. However, they can be costlier than traditional braces and the brackets are also more fragile.
  • Clear and Removable Appliance. These orthodontic options are made of clear, plastic aligners that can be removed when you eat or clean your teeth. They look like mouth guards and are also customized to fit you properly. A new aligner will be made for you after every two weeks to help move your teeth to their proper position.
  • Lingual Braces. Lingual braces work like traditional braces. However, their brackets and wires are placed at the back of your teeth. No one will be able to see them! The downside is that they’re usually more expensive and are harder to clean and adjust. It can also take longer to adjust to them than you would with traditional braces.
  • Colored Braces. The elastic bands that come with the metal braces can also be made into different colors to suit teenagers and preteens. You can choose a color to suit your skin tone, accessories, or mood. Wearing dental braces can be fun, too!

It's never been easier to straighten things out!

Braces individually tailored for kids, teens, and adults.

Why Straighten Your Teeth

Why does having straight teeth matter? There’s more to this than meets the eyes.

With a straight set of teeth, you can improve the way your teeth work. Your teeth and gums will be healthier, cleaning your mouth will be easier, and you’ll also keep bacteria from accumulating.

And not only that, since your oral health will improve, you’re also helping your overall health. Reducing your risk for developing periodontal diseases can also help lower your risk of cardiovascular diseases.

Crowded teeth are more susceptible to chipping and fractures. Misaligned teeth, overall, can also contribute to jaw pain, headaches, and even snoring and sleep apnea.

If you’d like to know whether adult braces are the right treatment option for you, our Lethbridge dentist Dr. Lachman can help. Book your initial consultation today.

Invisalign®, the Clear Alternative to Adult Braces

Will Invisalign® work for adults? Invisalign® is a great option for adults who are not comfortable with the use of traditional braces.

Invisalign® straightens teeth with the help of clear plastic aligners. We use an imaging device to map out a treatment plan for you. You’ll see how your teeth will improve at every stage of your treatment before you even get started.

Another advantage with Invisalign®, aside from it being virtually invisible, is that there’s no need for periodic adjustments. You don’t have to deal with wires and brackets.
