At Beach Braces, our team understands that face masks can be frustrating at times. However, it’s important to focus on the positives! Not only will you help save lives by wearing a mask, but you can also discreetly receive treatment for your smile! Now is the perfect time to take advantage of the face coverings, and improve your smile without those around you knowing!
Beach Braces offers several customized services to meet your individual needs. You can trust that Dr. John Dask is here to bring his years of expertise, and help you choose the best option for your smile. A few of the services that you may want to consider to align your teeth include:
- Self-Ligating Braces
- Invisalign Clear Aligners
- Surgical Orthodontics
As outlined by the Canadian Association of Orthodontics, a variety of orthodontic “appliances” are available today, ranging from traditional metal braces, self-ligating braces, tooth-colored braces, braces that go behind the teeth, clear aligners and other devices, depending on the patient’s needs and “wants”.
Self-ligating braces differ from traditional braces in that they use clips instead of elastic rings or steel twist ties to hold the archwires in place. This allows more flexibility for the archwire to move freely within the brackets, which makes tooth movement more comfortable. It also makes it easier for you to keep your braces clean and your teeth healthy during treatment. Visit our blog to learn more about the benefits of self-ligating braces.
Invisalign Clear Aligners
Join the Digital Revolution in orthodontics! A large number of bite or tooth malposition problems can be treated without using braces at all! Instead, custom-made computer-generated trays are worn over the teeth, which over time can correct the misalignment and improve your smile! There are several clear aligner systems available, but Invisalign is still the gold standard, backed up by 2 decades of research and development, and proven by results in over 9 million smiles worldwide. The process starts with a very accurate optical scan of your teeth that takes a few minutes. This amazing technology allows you to see how the teeth would look if they were straight, almost instantly. After that, it’s a matter of wearing your clear trays as instructed and you are well on your way to a new and improved you!
Surgical orthodontics (combination of orthodontics and jaw surgery) may be necessary for patients whose bite problems are due to a severe discrepancy between the upper and lower jaw (like a severe underbite, or a large overbite). It is estimated that 10-30% of all orthodontic patients would benefit from jaw surgery. Patients that were born with a condition such as cleft-lip and palate have a higher need for jaw surgery, as shown in a research article out of the Cleft-Palate Craniofacial Journal, written by our very own Dr. John Dask.
If orthodontic surgery is a necessary treatment for you, this would be the perfect time to schedule an appointment. The entire process can take months to complete, especially with braces involved. To learn more about surgical orthodontics, visit the treatment options section of our website.
