Braces treatment with your local braces expert

Before we begin your braces treatment, our team will take digital x-rays, photos, and a model of your mouth. We will then use this information to create a customized treatment plan based on your specific orthodontic needs. Our plan will include information about the movements each tooth needs to make to achieve optimal positioning, as well as determine the placement of your brackets.

Once the brackets are attached, a wire will be inserted to provide customized pressure on the teeth that need to be moved. This wire will be bent in a way that encourages specific and precise movements of the teeth. Through a process called remodeling, the teeth will slowly move into the correct position. This process involves minor changes in the bone that surrounds the roots of the teeth. The pressure from your braces causes cells called osteoblasts and osteoclasts to form around the roots of your teeth, which removes bone on one side and re-forms it on the other side.

To ensure your teeth stay in their new and improved positions, regular use of a retainer is required to prevent natural drifting over time.

What your Needville braces expert offers

All of our treatment options are excellent and can correct a variety of oral issues, from simple to complex. Traditional metal braces often work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other treatments might, potentially shortening your overall treatment time while also representing a cost-effective option for patients on a budget.

Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces we offer. These braces are constructed with high-grade stainless steel and work to straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. Our metal braces are more comfortable and fun than ever, with the option of choosing colored elastics to add a punch of personality to your treatment. We also offer clear or tooth-colored elastics for a more subtle approach.

Ceramic Braces
Ceramic braces work the same way as metal braces, but the brackets are made with a clear ceramic material instead. They are another great option for straightening your teeth and are used more often on the upper teeth than the lower teeth. They are popular with our older teen and adult patients because they are a discreet treatment option. Since the brackets tend to be a bit larger and more brittle than their metal counterparts, we normally do not recommend them for our younger patients.
