Braces are a pathway to achieving a straighter and healthier smile. Conventional braces are a tried-and-true orthodontic treatment, and nearly everyone is a candidate for this type of care. Braces work on the principle of gradual and gentle tooth movement, aligning your child’s teeth to their optimal positions over time to give them a beautiful, balanced and confident smile.
Braces consist of a system of metal brackets, wires and bands which are securely fixed to the front surfaces of your child’s or teenager’s teeth. As the wire is adjusted, it exerts gentle, precise pressure on their teeth, guiding them into their desired positions. Braces correct a number of orthodontic issues, such as:
- Crowded teeth
- Gapped and spaced teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Bad bites (overbites, underbites, crossbites, open bites, etc.)
Your child or teenager will visit Longhorn Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics regularly throughout their treatment, allowing our pediatric dentist to ensure their braces are adjusted properly and their smile is progressing. We will also provide instructions on the best ways to brush and floss while wearing braces so that you child can maintain good oral hygiene.
