Types of Braces We Use
The Metal Braces we use are made of high-grade stainless steel and they’re smaller, more comfortable and more attractive than the metal braces used a few years ago.
The Clear Ceramic braces we use are made of a translucent material. These braces are popular among adults who wish to improve their smiles in a low-profile manner. The only drawback to these braces is that they are somewhat fragile and the elastic ties used can become discolored between orthodontic visits.
The Invisalign System we use consists of a series of clear, custom-made removable aligners. When you’re wearing Invisalign, most people won’t even realize that you’re having your teeth straightened, as the translucent aligners are nearly invisible. This is a great option for adults looking to straighten their teeth without the look and feel of traditional metal braces.
The Invisalign Teen System we use is very much like Invisalign, but made just for teenagers. The clear Invisalign aligners have tiny Blue Dot wear indicators which tells your teen when it’s time to switch to the next set of aligners in the series. Plus, your teen will be given several extra aligners in case some are lost or broken.
The Empower Braces we use are self-ligating braces that use lightweight wires and low-friction brackets for faster treatment times. These, durable, comfortable braces make it easy to maintain good oral hygiene throughout the treatment process.
Your First Visit
Your first visit with us at our Cypress, TX orthodontics office will consist of an examination and discussion of your potential treatment options. We will address your orthodontic needs to determine if now is a good time to begin treatment. Once we’ve evaluated your records, we will conduct a treatment consultation with you to explain all aspects of your proposed treatment in detail. We will provide you with a complete clinical diagnosis, a written summary of our findings and a detailed plan that outlines your treatment, goals and estimated fees.
We promise to speak candidly with you about our diagnosis and recommendations and about any alternate treatments and symptoms present that may require further treatment. By working closely with you, we can achieve a true partnership with the end goal of helping you achieve a beautiful smile you can be very proud of!
