As dentists, our primary goal is to maintain your dental and overall health needs and wants. This means that we also offer orthodontic treatment to help you and your loved ones achieve a straight, esthetically pleasing smile.
When most people hear the word orthodontics, they think of teenagers with braces or Invisalign. But did you know that about one in five orthodontic patients are between the ages of 20 and 26? And many of our orthodontic patients are even older than that!
Some of the common malocclusion problems we see at our practice are crowded teeth, teeth spaced too far apart, protruding upper or lower teeth, and upper and lower front teeth that do not touch. Over time, we can shift your teeth into the optimal places. Small corrections can be completed in as little as six months, while more-complex situations may take longer.
Invisalign® – This virtually undetectable treatment uses a series of custom-made clear aligners that are calibrated to shift your teeth into the desired positions. In many cases, Invisalign in Edmonton is a great alternative to traditional braces, especially for those who want their ortho treatment to be private.
Invisalign can be an effective treatment for:
- Open bite
- Gap teeth (spaces)
- Crowded teeth
For your comfort and convenience… we have an iTero digital scanner that makes it possible to get a 3D digital scan of your teeth prior to treatment. You get to skip the messy impressions because of it! Plus, this technology captures an extremely accurate image of your teeth, and we can even show you what your smile will look like – after treatment – before we even begin!
Band & Bracket Orthodontics – We provide traditional braces in Edmonton … but now, they are far less noticeable than they used to be. Most of the metallic hardware associated with braces can be replaced by transparent or tooth-colored ceramics and thinner wires.
We recognize the importance of a great smile. It boosts your confidence, helps you make a great first impression, and perhaps most important of all … helps you avoid serious oral health problems that may require extensive treatment later on.
After reading this, if you think Invisalign or braces could make a difference to someone you know, call us today to arrange a consultation. We’d love to hear from you!
Yours in excellent dental health,
Dr. Jessie Jacob, General Dentist in North Edmonton
