Smile with confidence
Once considered only for teens, orthodontic treatments are now being used by an increasing number of adults who want to correct their misaligned teeth. And with innovations like clear aligners, it is easier than ever to straighten crooked teeth.
Why should you consider orthodontics? Crowded or crooked teeth are hard to clean, making them more vulnerable to decay. Overbites and underbites can cause discomfort and jaw pain. Gaps and crowding can also diminish the appearance of your smile.
Lakehead Family Dental is pleased to offer a wide range of orthodontic treatments including traditional braces using newer, more comfortable wires that straighten teeth more predictably and in less time. In addition to traditional metal braces, we offer clear braces which help to hide their appearance.
In some cases with minor tooth movement we can use removable active retainers (Inman Aligners).
We also offer clear aligners - clear, removable aligners that gradually shift your teeth into place. Clear aligners are custom-fitted to your teeth to offer you an effective and comfortable option for straightening your teeth.
