As a Georgian Mall Family Dental patient, you and your family can enjoy seamless orthodontic services through our sister clinic and Georgian Mall neighbour, Georgian Mall Dental Group. For your convenience, GMDG offers four of the most popular orthodontic treatments: traditional metal braces, SPEED braces, Express Smiles and Invisalign® clear braces.
Invisalign® / Clear Braces
Traditional metal braces are the most common orthodontic solution and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, they straighten teeth using metal brackets and arch-wires. With metal braces, kids have the option of adding coloured elastics for a more unique and engaging smile.
SPEED Braces have revolutionized orthodontics by eliminating the need for elastics used with traditional braces. Instead, SPEED Braces use a patented “Spring Clip” to straighten teeth. This clip is like a computer chip stored inside your braces. The clip is “programmed” by your GMDG orthodontist when they place the SPEED Braces on your teeth. Made of a super-elastic space-age material, the clip follows the programmed instructions by applying a light continuous force to gently move teeth to their correct position. The result is great comfort, and potentially fewer appointments. SPEED Braces are also quite small; typically 1/3 smaller than traditional braces. SPEED’s small footprint results in less food trapping, so good oral hygiene is easier to maintain throughout your treatment.
Express Smiles was developed by a small group of dentists with years of successful orthodontic and general practice experience. The focus of Express Smiles is to provide excellent results in as little as two to four months. The treatment utilizes proprietary technology and advanced techniques to achieve the desired results. The mission of Express Smiles is to provide exceptional cosmetic orthodontic results in a cost-effective manner. Consult with your GMDG orthodontist on the amount of time your Express Smiles treatment would require.
GMDG is an official preferred provider of Invisalign clear braces. Invisalign technology uses clear trays as orthodontic devices. These clear braces fit precisely over your teeth and move your teeth gradually to an ideal arch-form, bite alignment and beautiful smile. Your Invisalign process starts with a one-on-one consultation. Your orthodontist will listen to your desires and goals for your smile, teeth and bite, and design an Invisalign treatment based on your wants and needs. Invisalign typically moves teeth quicker than traditional braces, and it does so invisibly. Your friends and co-workers won’t even know you’re wearing “braces” because the Invisalign trays are virtually invisible.
Many adults believe it’s too late to bother with orthodontic treatment, but this is simply not the case. Feeling confident about your smile and overall appearance creates confident and healthy vibes, whatever the age. There are a variety of treatments available for adult patients, and given today’s advances in orthodontic science many of these can be accomplished without any of your friends, family and co-workers ever visually noticing that you are undergoing orthodontic work. Book a consultation appointment with us today to find out about the orthodontics for adults solutions best suited to you.

Express Smiles offers bracket options that include clear brackets and tooth-covered wires. Often, the appliance is out of sight and on the back side of the teeth.
The cost depends on whether you need both upper and lower teeth straightened, and the extent of your treatment. Express Smiles can cost less than one-half of traditional orthodontics.
Yes, all orthodontic treatments require some form of post-treatment retention. The Express Smiles retention method is invisible.
Express Smiles utilizes proprietary brackets and wires for a purely cosmetic treatment plan. Express Smiles does not attempt, in any way, to change your bite or jaw function.
Like any orthodontic treatment, you will need to retain your new smile in order to keep your teeth in the ideal position. Invisalign offers a new type of retainer that seems to work better than the traditional, bulky orthodontic retainer for Invisalign patients. These retainers are simply Invisalign trays that you wear while sleeping.
These trays are computer-fabricated based on the final stage of your Invisalign treatment. You’re given a new tray based on your final alignment position every 4 months. This process works better than traditional retainers, because trays and orthodontic retainers tend to “soften” with wear, allowing your teeth to slowly shift away from the ideal arrangement.
Another option is to have a permanent retainer (wire) bonded behind your lower teeth, and use the Invisalign nighttime retainer for your upper teeth. Your orthodontist will know which is the best option for you to retain the gorgeous smile achieved through Invisalign invisible braces.
Many people want to enhance the look of their natural teeth without investing in veneers. Invisalign could be the solution you have been looking for.
While people tend to connect orthodontic work to peoples’ teenage years, it’s almost just as common for adults to seek teeth-straightening treatment. Invisalign is a popular choice for adults because it’s an easy way to hide the treatment process. The system’s clear moulds and non-invasive appearance helps adults feel comfortable and reduce social (but unnecessary) embarrassment. Don’t forget, receiving orthodontic care not only straightens your smile but also improves overall gum and dental health. That’s why Invisalign for adults is a win-win!
Dental insurance plans and employee benefit plans can cover anywhere from 50% to 100% of the cost of treatment depending on the plan. No insurance? One of the following 3 solutions may be just what the doctor ordered:

- You can apply for the PayBrite “buy now pay later” solution on the spot and receive approval within minutes
- You can also apply for Dentalcard online and receive approval within 24 to 48 hours
