The braces we wore as kids are still around and just as good. Over the past 40 years, Hatheway Orthodontics has moved millions of teeth in the right direction using traditional braces, or what we call brackets and wires. Ceramic brackets are popular with teens who want to show off their favourite colours, which we can change at any appointment. Unlike aligners, braces are not removable, involve food restrictions, and require diligent brushing and cleaning. As a parent, your decision between traditional braces and aligners comes down to compliance since each differs in terms of hygiene, activities, and food. To learn more, book a free no-obligation consultation today. You, your teen and one of our doctors can talk it over and decide together.

Our traditional braces

+ Clear brackets
+ Non-removable
+ Must avoid certain foods
+ Requires special brushes
+ Same price as aligners
+ Necessary in special cases
+ More frequent appointments

Getting started

First, the brackets are cemented to each tooth. Then, a wire is placed between the brackets so they can be tightened up or down, left or right, depending on the way your teen's teeth need to move. Sometimes, springs, rubber bands, and other implements are used to exert more force when needed. After their braces are in place, a 5-10 minute appointment is scheduled each month to keep their teeth on the move. The length of treatment depends on your teen's particular case. While the procedure is painless, some patients experience mild discomfort getting used to the brackets and after tightening. This can be treated with a mild over-the-counter pain reliever and dental wax that protects the inside of their mouth. 

How it works

All it takes is a free, no-obligation consultation at one of our clinics. After discussing goals and completing x-rays and other images, one of our doctors examines your teen's teeth, bite, jaw and facial structure to determine the best course of treatment. Once complete, your treatment coordinator discusses the required investment which includes all appointments. Payment plans start at $45 per week* or less with orthodontic insurance coverage. As soon as you make your decision and everything is in place, treatment begins.

ALIGNERS

For more than a decade, Hatheway Orthodontics has created thousands of smiles without brackets or wires using Invisalign Teen. Many teens choose Invisalign because they are transparent and removable for photographs, playing sports, eating their favourite foods, and brushing their teeth. Instead of using wires, we move their teeth using a series of clear, custom-made aligners. Aligners are best for teens who are disciplined when it comes to compliance. That's because they require special care and must be worn at least 20 hours a day, every day, for the treatment to work properly. Book a free, no-obligation consultation today, and one of our doctors can help you decide the course of treatment that suits your teen. 

How it works 

First, we scan your teen's teeth to create a 3-D image.  Our doctors use these images to map out a treatment plan and manufacture a series of custom-made aligners. By wearing the aligners 20 to 22 hours per day, their teeth will gradually move.  Each aligner is worn for approximately two weeks.  As their treatment advances, our doctors monitor their progress in two-month intervals providing new aligners. The length of treatment depends on your teen's specific needs. Please note that although we make many of our perfect smiles with aligners, some advanced cases are treatable only with traditional braces.

Get started 

All it takes is a free, no-obligation consultation at one of our six clinics. After discussing goals and completing scans, one of our doctors then examines your teen's teeth, bite, jaw and facial structure to determine the best course of treatment. Once complete, your treatment coordinator discusses the required investment which includes all appointments. Payment plans start at $45 per week* or less with orthodontic insurance coverage. As soon as you make your decision and everything is in place, your aligners are manufactured, and treatment begins.
