Are Braces Right For Me?

A new smile can mean a new you, braces are often the first step.

Are Braces Better Than Invisalign® Treatment?

Braces are better in cases where you want to have the braces always attached instead of having removable braces such as Invisalign® treatment. Some teens find they frequently forget to insert their Invisalign® clear aligners, which means they don’t get the full benefit of their treatment. Also, braces are often better for dealing with complex cases involving significant movement.

The length of time that is required for you to wear your braces depends on the severity of your case. Your orthodontic specialist will examine your teeth and create a custom treatment plan just for you. Typically, treatments can take from 12 to 24 months to complete.

Traditional braces can offer many benefits over other forms of tooth correction. Such as:

  • Impossible to lose, break, or misplace brace unit
  • Can be used for more types and complexities of treatments than non-wire braces
  • Can be styled with colours to match your unique personality
  • Can even be added to the back of your teeth (called lingual braces) so they’re not visible

How Much Do Braces Cost?

Though the costs can vary depending on the amount of movement required in your teeth, Braces typically start around $5,500 and are often covered by family dental plans. Our orthodontists offer new patient packages that add extra value and convenience, such as iPads for monitoring progress, and electric toothbrushes for maintaining good dental hygiene during treatment.

What If My Family Dentist Tells Me I Don't Need To See An Orthodontic Specialist?

Even though family dentists can offer Invisalign® treatment (and other non-wire based braces), without being orthodontic specialists they are limited in what they can offer. This can sometimes result in receiving a treatment because it is what they can offer, not necessarily because it is what is best for your case.

Choosing to go with an orthodontic specialist ensures that you are receiving not just the service you want, or what there is to offer, but what is best for you.
