Over the last few weeks we've talked about the advantages of seeing a Certified Calgary Orthodontist for your orthodontic care, and how the latest technology can erase any thoughts of uncomfortable 'train tracks' that have to be worn for years!

Orthodontic care has come along way due to advancements in technology and focus given by orthodontists  to providing treatment in an efficient, timely manner.

So now that you know you don't have to wear the big metal train tracks forever; who do you turn to when you're ready to book your orthodontic consultation in Calgary?  It's easy, you just pick up the phone and call your chosen Calgary orthodontic office.

Many people believe that a referral is required to see an orthodontist, but in fact most Calgary Orthodontists allow patients to contact their office directly to set up an appointment.  Your General Dentist is always a great resource for knowing who the orthodontist is in your area and for making initial contact; but if you know which orthodontist you want to see, go ahead and call their office directly.

Calgary Orthodontist, Dr. Cory Liss, welcomes new patients without a referral.  For more information regarding this Calgary Orthodontic office, visit their website at or pick up the phone and call them today 403.287.0476

The thought of getting orthodontic braces can seem overwhelming.  But the latest advances in technology makes the entire process of wearing braces so much easier.

Orthodontic systems like Damon Braces, InsigniaSmile and Invisalign know that patients are striving to straighten their teeth in as little time as possible; while experiencing little, to no, discomfort.

InsigniaSmile recognizes that each smile is unique, like an individuals fingerprints, and uses digital treatment planning along with specially made brackets and 'tailor made' wires.  This ensures that each patient's case addresses the unique characteristics so that the end result is a beautiful smile...that lasts.

At Cory Liss Orthodontics focus is given to offering patients customized orthodontic care.  This means being able to work with the latest orthodontic technology and more than one orthodontic system. Ensuring a great treatment result means treating each smile uniquely.  If you're considering orthodontic treatment, this Calgary Orthodontist welcomes new referral required.

Calgary Orthodontist Speaks About Tooth Sensitivity

You've just got new orthodontic braces; the first step towards a beautiful smile.

Maybe you're curious to know what to expect in terms of tooth sensitivity during orthodontic treatment.

It's normal for there to be some mild discomfort and sensitivity, especially after your braces initially go on or after a wire change.

Teeth move during orthodontic treatment by gentle force being applied to teeth.  This force can make teeth sensitive to other pressures like chewy, hard candy, sticky food and chewing gum - all things that should ideally be avoided during orthodontic treatment.  Try to avoid hard, chewy foods and opt for softer foods that won't add to any sensitivity.

Sensitivity can also occur while wearing braces due to an increase in plaque formation. Orthodontic brackets have a rough surface and can incease the formation of plaque - that's why it's so important to see your General Dentist while wearing braces, as regular cleanings will help keep plaque buildup to a minimum.
Your Calgary Orthodontist will explain why it's critical to keep your braces clean, with brushing and flossing, so that plaque does not stay on teeth surfaces and cause sensitivity.  Not only can unclean brackets and teeth lead to sensitivity but it may also increase your chances of tooth decay.  You don't want to end up with beautiful straight teeth, full of cavities!

Get in to the habit of always keeping your toothbrush with you and make sure you brush after every meal or and snack - and of course don't forget to floss.

Cory Liss is a Certified Calgary and Airdrie Orthodontist.
