Braces, Invisalign® and Orthodontic Devices in Burnaby

Orthodontics focuses on diagnosing and treating tooth misalignment, bite corrections, or mismatched jaws. It can improve the look of your smile as well as your bite and the health of your teeth. Whether you’re considering traditional braces, retainers or custom appliances, like Invisalign®, orthodontics can help you achieve the straight smile you’re looking for.

Orthodontic Appliances

Functional Appliances – specific fixed and removable appliances that are utilized to correct jaw asymmetries and abnormalities. 

Fixed Braces – brackets fused to each tooth, and wire to connect them. They are made of metal, ceramic, or synthetic material, and elastics. 

Retainers – ensure the teeth maintain their alignment, and give the jawbone around the teeth a chance to stabilize after treatment.

Can Adults Benefit From Orthodontic Braces?

Adults can absolutely benefit from braces. Aside from aesthetics, misaligned teeth can cause difficulties biting, chewing and speaking clearly. Orthodontists agree that straight teeth are healthier teeth. They offer many health and dental benefits including:

    • Reduction in tooth decay
    • Decreased chances of developing periodontal disease
    • Decreased likelihood of tooth injury
