Am I a Candidate for braces?
To find out if you might be an ideal candidate for Braces, patients will need to meet with one of our knowledgeable dentists, who will assess the state of their teeth. Once this is complete, we will be able to determine whether or not Braces may be the correct form of treatment. Patients of all ages — from children to adults — are welcome to schedule a consultation and learn more about their options. Braces are able to accomplish quick and effective teeth straightening, thanks to their patented design, which works to align teeth by the root and expand the alveolar bone without the need for expanders.
What are the Reasons to get Braces?
Braces are used to help patients with a crooked, misaligned smile or close gaps between teeth. Straightening your teeth can improve your oral health by making it easier to brush and floss properly to prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and other issues. Additionally, straighter teeth reduce stress on the jaw joint (TMJ), helping to alleviate headaches and neck pain. Finally, aligning the teeth can also boost your self-esteem and confidence by giving you a more attractive smile! Evolution Dentistry is proud to offer braces to patients of all ages and at any stage of their oral health journey.
What Should I Expect When Getting Braces?
Patients who are deemed good candidates for Braces at Evolution Dentistry should expect the installation to be similar to traditional braces. Dr. El-Kheir will mount brackets on the individual's teeth that are connected by wires. Much like traditional orthodontics, these wires and brackets help straighten the teeth. But unlike regular braces, the Braces procedure at our Houston, TX office features triangle-shaped brackets and flexible wires to straighten the root of the tooth as well as the crown. For Braces patients, this means the entire process will be accelerated with better results than traditional orthodontics. Roots and crowns will begin straightening very soon following Braces installation, and the entire process may be over in as little as 120 days, a far cry from the 2 – 3 years of wear time for regular braces.
How are Braces different than traditional metal braces?
Like traditional braces, Braces straighten the teeth with a set of brackets and wires that move the teeth into alignment. However, the patented bracket technology employed by Braces moves the root of the teeth rather than the top of the teeth, making the process much more effective and faster.
Are Braces more comfortable than traditional metal braces?
Even though Braces work more quickly than traditional braces, they apply a more even, gentler pressure on the teeth that is typically more comfortable and less painful than traditional braces.
Will I have to wear a retainer after my Braces are removed?
Yes, you will. Unfortunately, with all teeth straightening using braces, if you don’t wear a retainer after they are removed, the teeth can shift. The good news: with Braces, you won’t have to wear a retainer all day, unlike treatments with traditional braces. After Braces, patients typically only need to wear their retainer for about 15 minutes each day instead of 22 hours a day!
Can adults get Braces?
Yes, they can. Many adults take advantage of the short treatment time offered by Braces to achieve a straighter, more beautiful smile.
