Braces in Victoria
Can Transform Growing Smiles
When our patients are experiencing significantly crooked teeth, noticeable gaps between their teeth or other serious malocclusion problems, the capable orthodontists at Victoria Pediatric Dental & Orthodontics are here to help with the transformative power of braces. Braces can work wonders at creating a smile that is much more uniform, confident, and even healthy for children in need. We strongly recommend that you bring your son or daughter in for an initial consultation by the age of seven. To get started, contact our Victoria, TX location today!
What are Braces?
Braces are made up of metal brackets, wires, and elastic bands. The brackets are attached directly to the front of certain teeth, and the wires are attached to their “wings” with the help of the elastics. As a result, the wires exert a gradual amount of pressure on the teeth so that they start shifting towards the positions our orthodontists desire. In addition to traditional metal braces, our practice also offers a more image-friendly alternative in the form of clear/ceramic braces.
What Can Braces Do For My Child’s Smile?
Both traditional braces and clear/ceramic braces are capable of fixing the following dental problems:
- Dangerously overcrowded teeth
- Various bite problems (crossbite, underbite, overbite)
- Significant gaps between teeth
- Noticeably misaligned teeth
When one of our patients is undergoing orthodontist treatment, we’ll want to see them in our office for a checkup every six weeks on average. This visit will give our orthodontists the ability to adjust the wire as needed and ensure that the teeth are progressing at a good pace. We can’t wait to help your son or daughter achieve a better, brighter smile!
