Dental Specialties

Our practice has been caring for the families of Grande Prairie and its surrounding communities for more than 15 years. In that time Higson Dental Group has established a solid network of dental specialists whom we trust and refer our patients to when a treatment is beyond the scope of our practice. Our referral network includes some of Northern Alberta’s premier dental specialists, who we feel grateful to work with knowing you will be in good hands.

What is an Orthodontist?

Orthodontists help to straighten teeth or align the jaw by means of braces, retainers, or other dental devices. They are trained to foresee future issues or correct current problems in the mouth, teeth, and jaw. While Higson Dental Group does provide dental treatment through the use of Invisalign clear aligners, we still refer cases that are complex or will respond more favorably to conventional bracket and wire therapy.

It’s very common for children, teens, and adults to see an orthodontist for specialized attention on corrective options. Some common concerns include crowded or overlapping teeth, issues with jaw growth and tooth development associated with losing baby teeth too soon, injuries that affect the teeth, or damaging habits like thumb sucking. All are common and can affect people at various ages.

Reasons to Visit an Orthodontist

Patients are often referred to an orthodontist because you or your dentist noticed a problem with your or your child’s teeth and jaws. There are many excellent orthodontist practices in Grande Prairie that we refer to on a regular basis.
