While traditional braces can straighten your smile, they also work to alleviate more than just cosmetic problems. Braces are an excellent option for those who may forget about caring for or wearing other types of orthodontic appliances. At OrthodonTEX, we offer traditional braces for patients with more complicated orthodontic issues that aligners can’t easily treat. To see how you can benefit from braces, get in touch with our office to schedule a consultation!Schedule Consultation
What are the benefits of getting braces?
The appearance of your teeth is important, but at OrthodonTEX, your overall oral health is more important and our primary focus. Whether it be making oral care between teeth and gums easier or correcting an overbite, the benefits of braces are abundant. Braces also have the ability to:
- Improve chewing or speaking
- Realign teeth or jaws
- Correct crooked teeth
- Prevent bone erosion
- Improve oral health
What age should you get braces?
Orthodontic treatment isn’t reserved for only teens and adults. At OrthodonTEX, we encourage patients as young as seven to come in for an early orthodontic consultation as any patient with misaligned teeth or bite issues can benefit from braces. If you’re uncertain whether or not if traditional braces are right for you, visiting a dentist that offers braces to examine your teeth, mouth, and jaw can help determine whether or not orthodontic treatment can benefit your smile.
Do braces take longer to straighten my smile?
The time it takes to straighten your smile will vary on several factors. While the average orthodontic treatment falls between one to two years, treatment may take longer. When you come in for a consultation, Dr. Meason will provide you with a custom treatment plan, including a treatment timeline.
