Orthodontics and Invisalign in Scarborough
It can be easier to straighten your teeth than you think. At Erinwood Dental, we offer both traditional braces and Invisalign clear aligners. Depending on your situation, you could be enjoying straighter teeth within six months to two years.
Two ways to straighter teeth
Both braces and Invisalign clear aligners work by applying even pressure to slowly straighten your teeth over a period of time. Traditional braces accomplish this with wire bonded to your teeth. Invisalign on the other hand, uses clear plastic aligners that slip over your teeth, are removable, and changed about every two weeks. A consultation with our friendly staff will help determine whether traditional braces or clear aligners are the better choice for you.
Metal braces gently reposition your teeth over—over 18 months to two years—using metal brackets, wires, and elastics. Typically, monthly visits are required to monitor progress.
Invisalign on the other hand, uses clear plastic aligners that slip over your teeth, and are removable—-so you can take them out to eat and brush. You’ll typically need to visit the office once a month to get a new set of aligners.
