You might be operating under the false assumption that orthodontic treatment from Southern Dental Associates at Baybrook in Webster, Texas is only for children or teenagers. However, orthodontics is great for people of any age that want a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Our team is proud to offer both traditional fixed braces and Invisalign. We will help you determine which option is best for your unique needs.
Braces are metal or ceramic brackets which are bonded to each tooth with a dental wire going through them. The wire is tightened regularly during treatment so that the teeth will move into proper alignment. Once treatment is complete, the braces are removed, and patients should wear a retainer to keep their teeth in this new, proper position.
This modern, revolutionary treatment to straighten teeth uses a custom-made series of clear aligners. These virtually invisible trays are made of smooth, comfortable plastic, and they fit tightly over your teeth. The aligners will gradually and gently shift teeth into place, based on the plan we make for you. There are brackets or wires. You just change to the next aligner in the series approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete.
