Invisalign and Braces
Daley Street Dental provides a range of orthodontic treatment for children and adults in Alstonville and the surrounding areas. Patients of all ages have experienced smile transformations using Invisalign and fixed orthodontic procedures. With invisible braces in Alstonville, you can finally obtain the healthy, even smile you have always wanted.
When Is Orthodontic Treatment Needed?
Orthodontic treatment can correct several dental and aesthetic concerns, including:
- Crooked teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Difficulty chewing
Dr Marta Kozera can assess your jaws, teeth and other oral structures to determine if Invisalign or another type of orthodontic treatment is right for you.
What Happens During Orthodontic Treatment?
At Daley Street Dental, we begin with a discussion about your oral health and aesthetic goals, as well as an examination of your oral and facial structures. We also take digital x-rays of your teeth or refer you for a special orthodontic x-ray (a lateral cephalogram) to develop your individual treatment plan.
Depending on your unique case, treatment may involve Invisalign clear aligners, or fixed orthodontics can straighten crooked teeth and correct problems with your bite. All of our clear or tooth-coloured braces options are comfortable, effective, and discreet, allowing you to achieve a straighter smile with ease.
How Long Does Orthodontic Treatment Take?
Orthodontic treatment time varies, but it takes two years, on average. Throughout your treatment, our dentists will check on your progress, evaluate your oral health, and make adjustments, if needed. After your treatment, you will need to wear an oral appliance like a retainer to keep your teeth in position. Otherwise, your teeth may shift. Some Invisalign treatments can be shorter depending on your treatment requirements.
Cost of Orthodontic Treatment
The cost of orthodontic treatment varies depending on your specific situation. Our team at Daley Street Dental can provide you with an estimation, so you have a better idea of the cost. When speaking with someone from our team, they will also discuss the cost of the following:
- Consultation (the first one is complimentary!)
- Pre-treatment examination
- Orthodontic record-taking including photographs, x-rays and impressions
- Orthodontic treatment planning including radiographic tracing and space analysis
- Orthodontic appliances, adjustments and retainers
- Post-treatment evaluation
If you have health insurance, we can also assist you in making a claim or finding out your coverage for treatment.
