Information about Braces and Retainers:
We provide early treatment to help guide the jaw into position, lower the risk of trauma, and correct harmful oral habits to improve the look and feel of your smile.
Orthodontic Treatment For Adults and Kids
Orthodontics isn’t just about the aesthetics of straight teeth. Straight teeth have fewer risks overall because they indicate a properly aligned jaw, healthy pink gums, and lessen the risks of bacteria adhering to the tooth’s surface. Straighter teeth are easier to clean, reduce the risk of cavities, and can even eliminate the risks of TMJ disorder. Braces provide people with misaligned teeth the ability to gain all of these benefits and provide people with a smile that’s clean and confident.
When you choose Safari Family Dental in Houston, TX, you’ll receive comprehensive family care that’s all-inclusive to your needs for your family orthodontic treatment. During your consultation, our dentists will discuss your finance options with you and provide a long-term treatment plan that encompasses your dental needs and concerns into a full commitment towards you and your family’s dental health. Our orthodontic treatment contains two stages for you or your loved ones for that perfectly healthy smile:
- Braces: Braces work to exert constant pressure along with the teeth and aim to correct orthodontic malocclusion such as overbites, open bites, crossbites, and underbites through a series of adjustments and increments. Braces consist of brackets, wires, and elastic bands to gently move the teeth and gums in small sections to allow for a gradual transition to their new position. This is considered the active part of our orthodontic treatment, and our focus is to help give your smile the harmony it needs to stay healthy.
- Retainers: Even while the braces do all the hard work, retainers work to ensure that the teeth stay in their proper place. For teeth to adjust, it can take years to transform their misaligned teeth depending on the person’s malocclusion and other dental issues. Retainers allow the bones, teeth, and gums to maintain their position during their development to solidify those results and maintain that beautiful smile!
