Braces are commonly used to correct crooked or misaligned teeth. They work by applying gentle, constant, pressure to move teeth slowly into the desired position. Primarily comprised of brackets (metal or ceramic), braces are bonded to the front of each tooth and connected by an arch-wire that provides the pressure to realign teeth to their desired location. Clear ceramic braces are a common option for many adults because they reduce the visibility of the braces.
With locations across Texas, Lovett Dental’s in-house orthodontists in Houston, Beaumont, Katy, and more, provide the highest quality care to our patients. Unlike independent orthodontists, our dental offices can provide a full range of service to our patients. This provides us the opportunity to form long lasting relationships with our patients as we work closely with them for all their dental needs.
Orthodontic work can span six months to several years, depending on the work that needs to be done. Throughout the process, Lovett Dental will be here to make sure you’re making progress towards your new smile.
Once your braces have been removed, you’ll be moved to a retainer, which will hold your teeth in their new position. If retainers are not worn as instructed, your teeth could return to their original position. Talk to your Houston orthodontist at Lovett Dental to eliminate any shifting.
Many adults choose Invisalign as a braces alternative. Invisalign uses clear removable aligners instead of brackets to straighten your smile. The aligners work in the same way traditional braces do, applying constant pressure to gently shift your teeth over a long period of time. The Invisalign aligners are practically invisibible and have shown to produce lasting changes to your smile.
