No one needs to live with teeth that are crooked, gapped or misaligned. Orthodontic treatments like braces can give you the straight, healthy smile you deserve. At our South Texas Dental locations in Fort Worth, we offer affordable family dental and orthodontic care to give kids, teens and adults a bright, beautiful smile.
When most people think about orthodontic care, they picture a teen with braces. Although the teen years are a common time to correct orthodontic issues, some kids and adults also can benefit from orthodontic care. At South Texas Dental, we recommend that our young patients receive their first orthodontic exam before they turn seven years old. This offers a chance for our orthodontists to implement preventative orthodontic treatments to correct alignment issues before a child is a teenager; in some cases, they may be able to avoid braces altogether.
Braces for Kids and Adults
When teeth grow in crooked, or the teeth on the top and the bottom of your jaws do not align, braces are often the best corrective measure. Kids and adults can benefit from wearing braces to straighten their teeth. Not only will their smiles look beautiful, it can also help improve their oral health. Straight teeth are easier to keep clean, reducing the chance of plaque, tarter, decay and gum disease.
At South Texas Dental, we prefer the use of braces with self-ligating brackets. These newer braces are a vast improvement over traditional metal braces which require rubber bands that can break and need more frequent adjustments. They are more comfortable and can save you and your family time with fewer appointments needed at our office.
