It is a good idea for your child to have an orthodontic evaluation by age seven. This is recommended by the American Association of Orthodontists and OASIS Modern Dentistry and Orthodontics. While this may seem too early, it is important to monitor development. Therefore, if issues are detected at a young age, they can be treated while the child is still growing. This proactive approach allows for the most reliable results. It also means the least expense and treatment time. Rest assured, our kid-friendly dental clinic in Houston is a very warm and welcoming place. Our experienced staff will make sure you and your child are at ease and comfortable throughout the process.
Braces consist of a system of brackets and wires. Today, there are a variety of braces available including, metal, ceramic, and lingual. Each type relies on brackets that are cemented to teeth. The archwires work with the brackets to gradually guide teeth into the desired position. Being a cutting-edge dental office, we offer orthodontic correction with a few perks, including self-litigating or elastic-free braces. The goal is to achieve maximum control, precision, and speed. Of course, we want to deliver the most efficient treatment in the least amount of time.
Invisalign® is an innovative system used to improve bad bites, and straighten smiles. Clear plastic aligners are worn on a prescribed schedule. First, your Houston dentist will take scans of your entire oral cavity. With an iTero® scanner, we can create a 3D model of your teeth, gums, and jaws. Then, your dentist can map out the movement of each tooth. This information is sent to Invisalign, where it is used to make your custom-crafted set of aligner trays. Every time you move up to the next aligner, your teeth will shift closer to their final position.
