Invisalign At Parkdale Family Dental
An Alternative to Metal Braces
Invisalign offers a discreet clear solution to align your teeth into the desired place.
Say goodbye to braces and hello to a beautiful new smile!
The invisible braces come with an individualised treatment plan which will meet your specific requirements.
At your first appointment, you’ll be able to see before-and-after pictures prior to beginning so that you know exactly what to expect.
With aligners that are nearly transparent, your teeth will slowly move into the correct position. Your aligners will be switched out at regular intervals.
They are removable and sent home in sets of three or four at a time. They can be removed at mealtimes, worn for a total of 20-22 hours per day until your goals are met.
Invisalign is treatment that could be ideal for busy schedules as you’ll only need to visit your dentist every six to eight weeks during treatment.

Enhance your smile and boost your confidence, affordably, with traditional braces. These metal braces are the most popular orthodontic treatment for a reason. Though they may not be as aesthetically pleasing as invisible aligners, thanks to technological advancements metal braces have become more comfortable to wear and less cumbersome.

- In addition to affordability, there are several other benefits of traditional metal braces:
- Can correct a broad array of cases, including more complex ones
- Compliance is never a concern as the patient cannot take the braces off or forget to wear them (as is sometimes the case with removable aligners)
- Can be utilised with extraction and non-extraction orthodonticsCan be combined with more modern appliances for bite correction
- Bands come in a variety of colours, including tooth-coloured ones, for a customised look
Orthodontics for Every Age
Early adolescence is the ideal time to get braces as the jaw bone is still developing and strengthening, permitting a quicker and more successful treatment. It’s important to note, however, that older individuals also can benefit from wearing traditional braces.
Maybe you regret not having had braces when you were a child or teen. It’s not too late! Adults, too, can enjoy straighter teeth with conventional braces. In fact, adults wearing braces is quite a common sight nowadays. Many adults consider braces as a gift to themselves — one that lasts and has appearance-enhancing benefits.
How to Care for Traditional Braces
As food can get trapped in the brackets and rubbers of your braces, it’s essential to brush and floss each day with special brushes that we give you. Maintaining excellent oral hygiene is necessary during treatment. To help ensure that your smile remains straight after your braces come off, we will likely recommend that you wear a retainer.
