Braces & Retainers

Metal or ceramic braces are used by your orthodontist to help you improve the look and feel of your smile. The amount of time spent in braces will vary depending on the individual patient, and can take anywhere between six and 30 months.

Self Ligating Braces

At Deerfoot Meadows, we use self ligating braces to give you your best smile. These braces offer:
  • Reduced friction
  • Quicker appointments
  • More hygienic
  • Greater comfort


Teeth have a natural tendency to move back to their original positions over time. The lifetime wear of retainers is the only way to prevent shifting. Retainers are a custom-fitted device placed in the mouth after orthodontic treatment is complete to hold your teeth in their current position.

Early Intervention

While comprehensive orthodontic treatment usually begins during adolescence, some problems need to be addressed at an earlier age. By age 7, most children have a mix of baby teeth and adult teeth, making it easier for the orthodontist to diagnose and correct tooth and jaw problems sooner and without surgery.

Guides Gently

Correct and guide the growth of your jaw to help permanent teeth come in straight.

Coordinates Arches

Regulate the width of the upper and lower arches with specialized treatments.

Creates Space

Prevent crowding and avoid the need for permanent tooth extractions later on.

Corrects Poor Habits

Early care can help correct thumb-sucking and help improve minor speech problems.

Dentofacial Orthopedics

If your child gets braces and headgear, he’s actually undergoing orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics. Most people have heard of orthodontics, but many are confused by the dentofacial orthopedics speciality.

While orthodontics entails the management of tooth movement, dentofacial orthopedics involves the guidance of facial growth and development, which occurs largely during childhood. Appliances are frequently used — the more familiar braces for orthodontics, and other specialized appliances like headgear and expanders depending on what facial abnormalities are present. Sometimes orthopedic treatment may precede conventional braces, but often the two are used at the same time. Often, to get orthopedic change, appliances are frequently used. Depending on the facial abnormalities, specialized appliances such as facemask, expander or herbst can be used.

Our expertise in both orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics allows us to diagnose any misalignments in the teeth and jaw as well as the facial structure, and can devise a treatment plan that integrates both orthodontic and dentofacial orthopedic treatments.

How It Works

With an effect similar to headgear, but without the use of a bulky appliance, the Carriere® appliance corrects both overbites/overjets and underbites without removing permanent teeth.

Surgical Orthodontics

Also known as orthognathic surgery, surgical orthodontics is used to correct severe cases that include bad bites, jaw bone abnormalities, and malocclusion. This corrective jaw surgery is performed to remedy skeletal problems that affect the ability to bite, chew and speak. Orthodontic treatment is done before and after surgery to position your jaws and teeth for optimal function.


The need for surgical orthodontics occurs when the jaws do not line up correctly, and a proper bite cannot be achieved with orthodontic treatment alone. Orthognathic surgery will help properly align the jaw, and orthodontic braces will then be used to move the teeth into their proper position.

How it works

Surgery is performed in a hospital and can take several hours depending on each case. After surgery and a two-week healing period, your orthodontist will fine-tune your bite with braces. After your braces are removed, a retainer will be required to help maintain your new smile.


Mouthguards are coverings worn over teeth and are highly recommended to help cushion impact and protect your teeth and soft tissue from injury during impact sports.

Why Do I Need a Custom Mouthguard?

  • Protects your teeth
  • Protects the soft tissues in your mouth
  • Reduces the risk facial fractures and/or concussions
  • Better fit

Recommended Use

Mouthguards should be used by anyone that plays contact sports or recreational activities that might pose a risk of injury to the mouth. It can also protect the soft tissues in your mouth from dental appliances such as braces.

Digital Technology

Digital imaging and advanced graphical interfaces can be incredibly helpful for everything from diagnosing issues to comfortably helping remedy them. These technologies help us accurately view and diagnose various conditions.


Capture the exact contours of your teeth, including areas that are typically tough to see with specific accuracy in many other situations.


New technologies make the examination process a breeze, allowing us to spend more time on addressing your concerns rather than simply locating them.


With computer imaging, you’ll simply sit comfortably in your chair while the pictures are taken, without the need for invasive procedures.
