Children can need braces for numerous reasons, including overlapping, crooked, and overcrowded teeth. These “bad bites” are called malocclusion. Sometimes these malocclusions can be caused by baby teeth being lost too soon or by habits such as thumb sucking. However, most often, malocclusion is inherited. However your child feels about their teeth, we are here to help. We can provide orthodontics/braces in Houston, TX, for your family and offer our patients various options to make your dental appointment easier.
Innovative styles of orthodontic treatments are being produced all the time to make your dental experience better and safer. Braces are made of brackets, wires, and rubber bands to put steady pressure on the teeth at their fundamental core, eventually moving them into a straighter position. The brackets attach to the teeth with glue or bonding cement, and we use laser lights to cure the cement onto the tooth for a stiff hold. These brackets provide the essential support needed for the wires and rubber bands. Most often, the brackets and wires are metal. However, many other options can be used to provide the alignment necessary for healthy teeth.
