Getting braces isn't what it used to be. Today's options range from colorfully cool, to nearly invisible. The choice is yours and you don't have to come up with the answers alone. Your orthodontist is an expert in helping you find your perfect match. So set up a time to talk about your options. Until then, here's a quick overview of the different types of braces available today.
The goal of orthodontic treatment is a good bite—meaning straight teeth that mesh well with the teeth in the opposite jaw. A good bite makes it easier for you to bite, chew and speak. This can enhance your dental health and your overall health, and may improve self-esteem. Orthodontic treatment is often part of a comprehensive dental health care plan. With good care, including orthodontic treatment when necessary, teeth can last a lifetime.
The Canadian Association of Orthodontists is the national organization and official voice for registered orthodontic specialists and is dedicated to the promotion of the highest standards of excellence in orthodontic education and quality orthodontic care.

Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontis plans out for you.
The organization known as the Winnipeg Dental Society (WDS), is governed by a constitution and a code of ethics. The constitution was adopted February 9th, 1956. The code of ethics is identical to that of the Canadian Dental Association. The mission statement of the WDS is to raise the standard of dental science, practice, art and literature, and to promote among dentists mutual improvements and good fellowship.
