Invisalign in Downtown Calgary
Invisalign has become a popular orthodontic procedure to improve the esthetics and function for patients. Invisalign treatment involves a series of removable plastic aligners that cover your teeth. Every 1-2 weeks the patient begins to wear a new aligner and slowly but surely the teeth move into the perfect position.
These clear aligners will move your teeth comfortably and efficiently to their final position, without having the metal appearance of braces.
Patients are expected to wear these aligners as much as possible, preferably all day and night. However, while you are straightening your teeth with Invisalign, you have the freedom to remove the trays whenever you need to. Often, patients will remove their trays when playing sports, musical instruments or eating. Invisalign is a great option to correct crowded teeth and bad bites for patients of all ages, including adults and teens.

Braces in Downtown Calgary
Orthodontic treatment traditionally has consisted of braces. They are still a great treatment option for many cases. Braces align your teeth by guiding, turning, and repositioning. Periodic appointments are needed to check progress adjust the wires as necessary to ensure the braces are moving the teeth properly. Metal braces are still quite common but now options like clear and tooth coloured braces leave everyone looking much more confident.
