Crooked teeth can not only impact the aesthetics of the smile but also a patient’s oral health. It can be difficult to clean between misaligned or overcrowded teeth, which leaves them prone to infection. Harmful bacteria can hide in these hard-to-reach spaces. Straightening the smile can make it easier for many patients to properly care for their smiles.
At Foothills Dentistry, Dr. Shruti Chahal provides orthodontic treatment for patients with crooked teeth in her Calgary, AB office. She works with her patients to understand their individual needs, dental history, budget, and oral health goals. Fully understanding her patients allows Dr. Shruti Chahal to create a custom-tailored treatment plan.
Types of Orthodontic Treatments
Learn about each type of orthodontic treatment that Dr. Shruti Chahal offers to her patients here:
- Invisalign: Invisalign utilizes clear aligners so patients can discreetly straighten their smiles. These removable aligners make it easy for patients to eat the foods they love and thoroughly clean their smiles.
- Metal Braces: Traditional metal braces are beneficial for patients of all ages with a variety of orthodontic problems. With metal braces, patients can not only improve the look of their smiles, but also their speech, bite pattern, and jaw development.
- Braces for Kids: Early orthodontic treatment can be beneficial to preventing crooked and overcrowded teeth in the future. Any concerns about a child’s jaw, fit of their bite, or tooth placement can be addressed with orthodontic treatments. Metal braces are usually the best option for younger patients, although children with the majority of their permanent teeth may be Invsialign candidates.
- Braces for Adults: Adults often have more orthodontic options because they have all of their permanent teeth. It is never too late for a patient to receive orthodontic treatment. Although it may take longer for patients to straighten their teeth as an adult, they can still achieve brilliant results.
