What types of orthodontic treatment are available?

When you visit our office for an initial consultation with your orthodontic specialist, we will discuss the type of orthodontic treatment that will best suit your needs.

Fixed Orthodontic Appliances

Braces are the commonest fixed orthodontic treatment. Braces are attached to the teeth and adjusted to solve your particular issue. Most of our patients are scared of braces thinking about the metals that ruin their smile. But thanks to the advancements in the field of dentistry, braces nowadays are closer to natural mouth appearance. They are available in several colors and clear styles giving you the freedom to smile with confidence.

Space Maintainers
At our Houston clinic, treatments are also available for thumb sucking and tongue thrusting. We also offer pediatric orthodontics that includes the use of fixed space maintainers. It helps maintain open space and stops the neighboring teeth from changing their position while an adult tooth is under eruption.

Removable Orthodontic Appliances

If you are afraid of having to wear orthodontic appliances all the time, removable appliances are a great alternative for you. Instead of metallic braces, you can choose aligners that are almost invisible. Aligners make your life easier. You can remove them before eating, so nothing is getting stuck between your teeth. Similarly, you can conveniently brush and floss your teeth with your aligner removed. To get your custom-fitted aligner, contact our Houston orthodontic office today.

A retainer is follow-up treatment for patients who have undergone braces treatment. It is worn on the mouth’s roof, and it “retains” the new position of teeth by stopping them from shifting back to their old position.

Other removable orthodontic appliances:

  • Lip bumpers
  • Space maintainers (removable)
  • Mandibular repositioning device (MRD)
  • Headgear
