Orthodontic Services

Orthodontics includes services such as retainers and braces that better align your teeth and jaw, to help fix and array of irregularities. Stoney Trail Dental ask questions about your health to prepare you for these specialized orthodontic treatments. Your Stoney Trail dentist will complete a full dental exam, x-rays of your head and mouth, along with teeth impressions, prior to performing any orthodontic work. 


You may experience some pressure and discomfort on your teeth following your orthodontic appointment. Please ensure to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your dentist. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at 403-248-2948.

Braces Options

By examining your teeth your dentist will determine whether to provide you braces with bands, wires or other fixed and removable corrective appliances. Braces apply continuous pressure to your teeth. This pressure slowly moves your teeth to the correct spot in your mouth. Your bone changes shape as your teeth move and pressure is applied.
After your braces are removed you will notice a vast difference in the alignment of your teeth.

Components of Braces

1

Brackets
Small squares bonded to the front of your teeth with a bonding agent or orthodontic bands. Brackets hold arch wires that move your teeth around.

2

Orthodontic Bands
Providing an anchor for the brackets, they act as a blanket around each tooth. You may solely be fitted with bands or brackets.

3

Spacers
Create a small space before the bands are placed; separators that fit in between your teeth.

4

Arch wires
Wires that connect to the brackets guiding the movement of your teeth.

5

Ties
Thin wires or small rubber rings that attach to the arch wire to the brackets.

6

Bucal Tubes
Holds the end of the arch wire in its place.

7

Small Elastic Bands or Ligatures
Keeps the arch wires on the brackets.

8

Springs
Springs can be placed on the arch wires between the brackets to open, pull, close or push spaces between your teeth.
*Note that we may place headgear tubes on your upper teeth to hold this and the face-bow (device that moves your upper molars back in your mouth, correcting bite discrepancies and creating locations for crowded teeth) in its spot.

9

Elastics or Rubber Bands
Attach to hooks on brackets and are worn in a variety of ways between your upper and lower teeth. They apply pressure moving upper and lower teeth beside one another so we can achieve the ideal fit for your individual teeth.
Guess What? We have newer mini braces! These braces are smaller and your dentist may recommended them after determining your personal needs.

Invisalign®

Invisalign® is another type of braces we offer. This is a great option for those that have a less severe teeth crowding because they are made of a removable clear plastic that is invisible to the eye. These have a natural look when in place and no one will even be aware you even have braces on. So go ahead, see if you are a candidate for Invisalign® to effectively treat you for proper tooth alignment.
