At Souris Family Dental, our Weyburn dentists offer traditional braces and Invisalign clear aligners as orthodontic treatment options to help straighten your smile.
How Orthodontics Work
Whether we are working with a child, teenager or adult, the goal of orthodontic treatment is the same – to straighten teeth so they look and function better.
To achieve this goal, we use braces or clear aligners that apply gentle pressure to your teeth to shift them into the correct position over a period of months or years.
Though traditional braces have been used for decades to straighten teeth, they have received updates in recent years. Today's braces are now low-profile, more comfortable and easier to care for, thanks to advances in orthodontic treatment. We offer both clear and metal options for braces.
How Braces Straighten Teeth
Braces will apply continuous pressure to your teeth over a specified period of time, gradually moving them into their new, corrected positions.
As pressure is applied and the teeth shift, the bone changes shape to accommodate the teeth's new positions.
Invisalign Clear Aligners
Invisalign clear aligners help to gradually straighten your smile using a series of individually customized, clear plastic aligners. These are adjusted over a period of time.
With Invisalign, the convenience factor is built in – you can remove them for when you'd prefer to keep the fact that you're straightening your teeth a secret.
They are easy to insert and look like custom whitening trays. You can even remove them to brush, floss, eat and drink!
