Wearing Your Orthodontic Retainer – An Important Part of Treatment

NW Calgary Orthodontist – Cory Liss – instills the importance of wearing your orthodontic appliance according to your orthodontist’s instructions. As much as he loved being your orthodontist, he doesn’t want to see your smile in his office for yet another two years, and explains that when a finishing appliance is worn correctly the tendency for teeth to drift is prevented and the need for repeat treatment is removed.

Can Orthodontic Treatment Really Help You Keep Your Teeth Longer?

A whopping 10.13% of adults aged 50 to 64 have lost all of their teeth! That makes for quite a few gummy smiles…and motivation for younger generations to take care of their teeth while they have them. Calgary Orthodontists play an important role in helping patients attain healthy smiles that increase the chance of keeping teeth for a lifetime. Dr. Cory Liss is an Orthodontist with offices in Calgary and Airdrie who explains the many benefits of orthodontic treatment – apart from Straightening Teeth.

Staying Healthy – That Means Taking Care of Your Teeth

Preventative Dentistry refers to Dental Exams, Prophylaxis Cleanings, Dental X-rays, and Fluoride Rinses – all of which contribute to the prevention or early diagnosis of dental issues. When routine dental care is neglected it doesn’t take long before minor concerns begin to arise – concerns such as Gingivitis, Dental Decay, and Premature Tooth Loss. But a regular visit to a dentist also presents an opportunity for Tooth Eruption and Jaw Development to be monitored and evaluated.

Hockey Season is Here – Are You Protecting Your Smile With A Sports Guard?

Everyone knows what a big fan Dr. Cory Liss is of the Calgary Flames – even when they’re losing he’s still cheering them on. And as a recreational hockey player himself, this NW Calgary and Airdrie Orthodontist understands the importance of wearing a sports guard when on the ice. It only takes seconds for an accident to occur in any sport – and when a puck, lacrosse stick, ringette ring, or skate blade is veering off course significant damage to the mouth and teeth can occur.
