Orthodontics is a dental specialty that involves the alignment and positioning of teeth for optimum health. While a straight, aligned smile is aesthetically pleasing, it is also needed for good health. Crooked teeth, gaps and other alignment issues can affect speech and make it difficult to keep teeth clean. By correcting alignment issues, your family’s smiles can look fantastic while improving their chance of excellent oral health.
Braces for Kids and Adults
The most common orthodontic treatment is the use of braces for correcting alignment issues. Most people associate teenagers with braces to orthodontic care. However, orthodontic exams should begin at a much younger age, around seven years old. Preventive treatments can reduce the need for braces later, or minimize the alignment needed.
At South Texas Dental, our orthodontists offer preventive and corrective treatments for kids and adults, including braces. We prefer the use of braces with self-ligating brackets, an advanced option over traditional braces. These self-ligating brackets eliminate the need to use rubber bands to hold the alignment wires in place. They are also more comfortable and can often reduce the amount of time needed for treatment.
