Orthodontics is more than just improving your smile. Proper spacing and tightness between teeth lead to less food trapping and better natural ‘wicking’ of food.
Professional Orthodontic Care in Airdrie
Get a Straight Smile with Orthodontic Care in Airdrie
The concept behind orthodontic care is using pressure to gradually move your teeth into the right position.
If you aren’t happy with your smile, orthodontic care in Airdrie can straighten teeth that are crowded, crooked or sticking out. Yankee Valley Dental works with both kids and adults to find the best orthodontic solution for your mouth, lifestyle and budget.
Dr. Parsa will check the positioning of your bite (otherwise known as ‘occlusion’) at every regular check-up and with let you know if she notices that your teeth are out of alignment. Common orthodontic issues include deep overbite, crossbites, large overjets or open bites. You and Dr. Parsa may decide to monitor teeth movement over time using intra oral photos or proceed with orthodontic treatment.
If required, Dr. Parsa may refer you to an orthodontist in Airdrie that specializes in malocclusions and can do more complex care such as headgear and jaw repositioning appliances.

Dr. Parsa will always give out her personal phone number after extractions, dental implants, or root canal therapy.

Testimonial of Our Service
I saw Dr. Parsa to get my wisdom teeth removed when she was working in Calgary. I had been told by another general dentist that I have to see the specialist to get them out but put it off because it was hundreds of dollars just for the consultation. I was in soooo much pain when I saw Dr. Parsa and was so relieved when she was able to take them out for me. It saved me a lot of money since my insurance covered her fees. I also had sedation since I was really nervous about the procedure and don’t think I could have gone through it without. So grateful that she was able to help me out. I highly recommended Dr. Parsa anyone looking for a dentist!
