At Yankee Valley Dental, we offer kids and adults in Airdrie several braces options to fix crooked, crowded or misaligned teeth. Today’s braces are smaller and less noticeable, and you can even choose tooth-coloured ceramic braces or clear aligners for adults.
Before you get started, Dr. Parsa will sit down with you to discuss the options, including how they work, how long braces might take and the care they’ll need. She may suggest that you combine braces with other orthodontic care such as removing teeth to make space. If cost is a factor, Yankee Valley Dental will consider your financial situation, work with your insurance companies and offer payment plans to make braces more affordable.
Problems with bite and teeth alignment become more obvious after permanent teeth start to come in, around the age of seven. Dr. Parsa may recommend appliances at an early age (i.e. before your permanent adult teeth come in) because your mouth is still growing and she can stop a problem before it develops. There are also appliance available to help with thumb sucking.
That being said, you don’t have to be young to benefit from orthodontic treatment. In cases where adults have heavy wear on their teeth, using braces to align teeth is an important first step for an ideal treatment plan. Dr. Parsa can explain these options further during her complimentary consultations. Less noticeable orthodontics and insurance coverage is convincing more and more adults to improve their smile through Airdrie orthodontics.
