Dr. McDermid on short term orthodontics

Short-term orthodontics can give you the smile you want in as little as six months. You might be an ideal patient for short-term orthodontics if:

Lea M. on orthodontics
  • You’ve worn braces before but just need a touch-up treatment
  • You have a few small gaps between teeth you’d like to close
  • Your teeth are only mildly crooked
  • Your bite is mostly in alignment

Short-Term Appliances

We use clear braces in our short-term orthodontics treatment. Clear braces are used to correct the position of your teeth. Benefits of clear braces:

  • Removable so you can continue to enjoy all of your usual activities
  • Easier to maintain your regular brushing and flossing routine
  • Less noticeable by your peers or colleagues
  • Trays are custom fitted for your teeth and your needs

We offer three types of clear appliances:

  • Invisalign
  • Smart Moves
  • K-Line clear aligners

Other Orthodontic Options At Lakewood Dental Centre

During your first orthodontic visit, our dentists might find that your needs are too complex for short-term orthodontics. It may still be possible for you to benefit from clear braces; however, you may need to wear them for a longer window of time to get results. We can also fit you with traditional braces to help improve your bite or straighten your teeth.
