Braces can be an excellent way to straighten your smile and give you the healthy teeth and gums of your dreams. Traditional braces have been used for decades to straighten teeth, but patients have many more options today. Our Houston ceramic braces expert can help you decide on the best treatment solution for your needs.
Ceramic braces may be an option. This special type of braces can make the same wide array of tooth movements that traditional braces do, but they use tooth-colored ceramic brackets rather than metal brackets. This results in a more natural-looking treatment experience. The self-ligating design of the ceramic brackets can often speed treatment time for patients and allow for more comfort during treatment.
Many adults and teens object to the noticeable metal look of braces, but Invisalign may not be right for all patients. Ceramic braces offer the ideal blend of aesthetics and function. Our expert in ceramic braces in Houston can use ceramic braces to correct crossbites, overbites, underbites, crowded teeth, gapped teeth and crooked teeth.
Our Houston ceramic braces expert will begin by evaluating your teeth and gums. After a visual exam, we will take dental X-rays and other images and records to create a treatment plan. This plan will give you a better idea of the course and length of treatment. Once the brackets, bands and wires are placed, you will be well on your way towards a healthier smile.
While braces effectively straighten your smile, you will need to take steps to maintain the health of your smile throughout treatment. Take the time to brush carefully after each meal so that you can remove any plaque, bacteria and debris buildup. Be especially careful around the brackets to remove the potentially harmful buildup that tends to accumulate here. Use special floss threading tools to floss after meals. Floss between each set of teeth, along the gumline, and above and below the wires. Regular visits with our expert in ceramic braces in Houston will be necessary for adjustments and checkups.
