Whether they’re for correcting your teen’s dental development or creating the ideal smile you’ve been wishing for as an adult, traditional braces are often the best solution for misaligned teeth. At Texas Dentistry, our dentists are happy to work with patients young and old to create the straighter, healthier smiles that they deserve. If you think someone in your family could benefit from braces, call us today to schedule a consultation and learn what traditional orthodontics have to offer.
While we’re examining your child’s smile during their routine examinations, we’ll keep an eye out for alignment issues and other orthodontic problems that might develop over the years. If we can address these problems as early as possible, we can potentially stop your child from needing more advanced orthodontic care later in life. If they do still need correction as a teen, we can use braces to address all kinds of issues, from the comparatively mild to the particularly severe. The exact amount of time required for the treatment will vary from patient to patient; we will be sure to walk you and your little one through the treatment plan.
Roughly a quarter of all orthodontic patients are adults, whether the treatment is strictly for cosmetic reasons or to improve oral health. Living with misaligned teeth can increase your risk for cavities, gum disease, bruxism (teeth grinding), and TMJ problems. Braces are just as effective on older patients as they are for younger ones. The treatment might take longer due to the fact that the mouth has stopped growing, but the end results will be no less beautiful for it. We can figure out the type of orthodontic corrections that you need during your first consultation.
To make sure your orthodontic treatment is successful, it’s important to protect your braces by:
