When it comes to braces for yourself or your child, there are endless options available today. Also, since everyone’s mouths are unique, there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to getting braces. The best way to get clear answers to help you determine which option is best for you is to have a consultation with a dentist. This way you can have a one-on-one consultation and formulate a custom treatment plan catered specifically to your needs and goals. Getting braces is a significant commitment, not only monetarily but for your appearance. If you are considering braces for yourself or your child, we encourage you to arrange a free consultation with Dr. Arash Ravanbakhsh at Inglewood Family Dental to learn about our options for affordable braces in Calgary.

Traditional braces consist of unsightly metal brackets that are placed on your teeth with an adhesive and connected with a wire. With metal braces, many patients often complain of pain and discomfort, especially when a wire or bracket breaks or comes loose. Metal braces also require more maintenance than some other options and periodic tightening every 4-6 weeks to allow for your teeth to straighten gradually due to the increased pressure of the wires and brackets.
If this doesn’t sound appealing to you, we’ve got good news! At Inglewood Family Dental, we offer affordable braces in Calgary starting at just $150 per month with Invisalign! Invisalign is the clear alternative to traditional, clunky, and unsightly metal braces. Also known as clear aligners, Invisalign can shift your teeth gradually, over time without the need for metal brackets or wires. They are clear trays that are customized specifically for your mouth and can be removed for short durations when eating, brushing, flossing, and even taking pictures. Furthermore, Invisalign SmartTrack material has been proven to move 50% faster and with 75% more predictability when compared to other models made from single layer EX30 material.
Many patients prefer Invisalign because they can accomplish the same goal of straighter teeth with the flexibility and comfort of removable aligners. It also gives them the freedom to eat what they want without restrictions you would typically have with metal braces and brackets. They’re also virtually invisible! This means that most people won’t even know you’re wearing them.
Both children and adults alike can benefit from Invisalign clear aligners. It is a less intrusive way to straighten your teeth and align your jaw. Invisalign generally consists of 18-30 custom plastic aligners that are created using a 3D image of your mouth, so they fit precisely. Each tray is slightly different and gradually shifts your teeth into proper alignment over time. Your dentist will provide an in-depth treatment plan specific to your needs but generally, these aligners are swapped out every 2 weeks to help encourage shifting and guide your teeth into position.
While Invisalign is many patients preferred method for straightening their teeth, it may not be appropriate for everyone. In severe cases of misalignment or malocclusion, more intensive or invasive treatment may be required such as surgical orthodontics or traditional metal braces. This is why, at Inglewood Family Dental, we provide free consultations for patients of all ages so they can learn about our options for affordable braces in Calgary.
