Braces in Houston, TX
WHAT EXACTLY ARE BRACES?
When it comes to getting a straighter smile, modern dentistry has advanced to the point where many options are available to patients of all ages. We are excited to offer Braces technology to our patients and their families at Evolution Dentistry.
This patented technology uses wires and metal brackets to move teeth by the roots rather than the crown, which speeds up the teeth-straightening process. This is a 4- to 6-month treatment that is ideal for teenagers and adults who want to straighten their teeth quickly and safely without committing to a longer process like traditional metal braces or clear aligners. Adults and teenagers in Houston, TX have been able to enjoy a straighter, safer path.

Is braces right for me?
Patients will need to meet with one of our knowledgeable dentists who will assess the state of their teeth to determine if they are a good candidate for Braces. Once this is completed, we will be able to determine whether or not Braces are the best treatment option. Patients of all ages are welcome to schedule a consultation and learn more about their options, from children to adults. Braces can straighten teeth quickly and effectively because of their patented design, which works to align teeth by the root and expand the alveolar bone without the use of expanders.
What Should I Expect From Braces?
Patients who are deemed suitable for braces at Evolution Dentistry can expect the installation to be similar to that of traditional braces. Dr. El-Kheir will place brackets connected by wires on the individual’s teeth. These wires and brackets, like traditional orthodontics, help straighten the teeth. However, unlike traditional braces, the Braces procedure at our Houston, TX office uses triangle-shaped brackets and flexible wires to straighten both the root and the crown of the tooth. This means that for Braces patients, the entire process will be accelerated, with better results than traditional orthodontics. Roots and crowns will begin straightening very soon after braces are installed, and the entire process could be completed in as little as 120 days, a far cry from the 2 – 3 months previously estimated.
