At Strathcona Orthodontics we use a variety of orthodontic treatments that move your teeth and jaws.
Uses a series of computer-designed, custom-made removable clear aligner trays created just for you based on Dr. Aziz’s specifications. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic that when combined with attachments gradually straighten your teeth. (www.invisalign.com)
We use ‘self-ligating’ brackets that eliminate the need for the elastic ties which in the past was required with traditional braces to straighten teeth. This decreases the pressure that is applied to the tooth and decreases friction, allowing the teeth to move more freely. The result…more efficient and comfortable tooth movement!
Various cemented and removable appliances can be used to correct the front-to-back relationship of the upper and lower jaws. These appliances are fully contained within your mouth, do not show, are much easier to wear than headgear!
