Choosing an Orthodontist in Halifax
A healthy, beautiful smile can do wonders for your confidence and overall health and well being. Regardless of your age, it’s never too early or too late to consider braces or other corrective alternatives.
We’re committed to helping all patients achieve improved smiles using the latest in state-of-the-art orthodontic technology. While the Canadian Association of Orthodontists recommends that all children have a consultation by age 7, we work with patients from 7 – 70+. In fact, nearly 50% of our patients are adults!
Getting orthodontic treatment can be scary because of the unknown- we all have horrible visions of so called “metal mouths” and painful, outdated treatment methods. And, especially for older patients, there can be a social stigma attached to having braces.
Luckily, technology has advanced in many areas of orthodontic treatment, meaning we can provide you with orthodontic solutions that are comfortable, effective, discreet and most importantly, affordable.
We understand that the decision to pursue orthodontic treatment isn’t made lightly and we strive to make every effort to make your experience as comfortable and effortless as possible.
We respect and value your time, which is why we have several practices in place to ensure your visits with us are as convenient as possible including:
- reduced treatment time
- fewer appointments
- flexible payment plans with no credit checks required
- direct billing to insurance
Your comfort is very important to us, both during your treatment and during your visits at any of our clinics. Our treatments include many advances to ensure your comfort:
- braces technology that use natural, low forces to move teeth
- lighter, more flexible and friction-free materials
- reduced hardware
Additionally, our offices have all been designed with your comfort in mind and include amenities such as wireless internet access.
We strive to ensure your treatment is seamlessly integrated in your daily life and barely noticeable. This includes using clear and ceramic braces in stain-free materials. We also offer Invisalign- removable and invisible aligners which are perhaps the most discreet option for teeth straightening.
There are many factors involved in choosing the right orthodontist for you. Most importantly, you should always feel like you have received a thorough explanation of what’s involved in your treatment before, during, and after it occurs. It’s important to feel comfortable and to ask questions. Regardless of your decision, we would welcome the opportunity to get to know you a bit better.
