Our orthodontists at OrthoStyle Montréal offer Montreal patients traditional-style braces to straighten teeth, close gaps between teeth, and improve overall oral function.
Gone are the days of heavy headgear and large cumbersome brackets. Today's braces are streamlined, comfortable and low profile. In some cases, they're nearly invisible, making them a truly viable option for adults and teens who are concerned about aesthetics.
How do braces work?
Brackets are bonded to the front of your teeth semi-permanently, for either a portion or the entire duration of your orthodontic treatment.
Traditional fixed braces have improved their function and size and can be made of metal or tooth-coloured porcelain.
Porcelain brackets offer an aesthetic advantage, in addition to being a hypo-allergenic option. Wires are attached to the bracket through either a locking mechanism or elastics. Elastic ties can be coloured or clear, to match to your personality or preference.
Treatment progress is monitored at regular intervals, typically every 4-6 weeks. At those appointments, brackets and wires are often adjusted to continue shifting your teeth into the correct position.
If you think braces might be a solution for you, get in touch with our Montreal office to book a consultation with one of our orthodontists.
