Adult braces or Invisalign - Ask A Dentist Winnipeg

Q: I’ve been thinking about straightening my teeth, but as an adult I feel kind of embarrassed. How long would I have to wear braces?A: The length of time you’d need to wear braces depends on what needs to be corrected. The good news is, you have the option of straightening your teeth without wearing braces.Both our Winnipeg dental clinics offer Invisalign to help our patients smile with confidence. Invisalign is a series of removable, clear aligners which are custom-made for your mouth to gradually shift your teeth.Many people prefer Invisalign because it allows them to eat and drink whatever they would like, and they are not as noticeable as braces. It’s also easier to maintain good oral health because you can remove your aligners to brush and floss.Schedule an appointment with our dentists at our St. Vital or Garden City locations today to discuss the best option for straightening your teeth. We’ll be happy to help!
