Give your family beautiful, straight smiles with orthodontic care from South Texas Dental in Arlington. We are your source for family dental care, from pediatric and general dentistry to affordable braces and orthodontic treatments. Everyone deserves to have a healthy smile that looks great. At South Texas Dental we can help everyone in your family get healthy, perfectly aligned teeth which are an important part of a beautiful smile.
Straight teeth and an aligned bite is not just about aesthetics. While orthodontic treatments can make your smile look wonderful, it is also important for your health. Crooked or gapped teeth can be difficult to keep clean, leading to decay and gum disease which can affect your overall health. Tooth alignment can also affect speech and the ability to chew healthy foods, which are necessary for excellent health.
Braces for Kids and Adults
When you need quality orthodontic care in Arlington, come see our talented orthodontists at South Texas Dental. We offer braces for kids, teens and adults to give your whole family healthy teeth. We prefer to start seeing children for their orthodontic needs by the time they turn seven; this helps us determine if there are preventive treatments we can implement when they are younger to ensure proper teeth and jaw alignment. Then, if needed, we use braces with self-ligating brackets to straighten and align their teeth for a healthy smile.
Self-ligating braces are easier to maintain than traditional braces with bands that can break and need repair. Plus, self-ligating brackets are more comfortable to wear and can shorten the length of treatment. Both kids and adults can use these newer braces which are great for the whole family.
