Braces Treatment

in Bee Cave, Kyle, and Austin

Braces are still one of the most efficient and effective ways to straighten various tooth and bite problems. 

Orthodontic braces can correct a variety of oral health issues, including crowding, misaligned teeth, spacing, overbites, underbites, crossbites, and open bites. Addressing these concerns carries many benefits beyond a beautiful smile and the confidence that comes with it. Teeth that are aligned are much easier to clean, which makes them less vulnerable to cavities or gum disease. Teeth that fit together in a good bite, can last a lifetime.

We utilize the latest high-tech self-ligating brackets (braces) that gently tighten themselves over time. This means they don’t require the monthly tightening like traditional braces and frequent change of the colored ties. This allows us to space your appointments further apart. The huge benefit here is the braces are still working for longer and you don't have take as much time out of your busy schedule to come into the office.

What Are Self-Ligating Braces and How Do They Work?

We offer our self-ligating brackets in metal and tooth-colored (ceramic) options. Traditional braces use colored ties to hold the wires in place. These ties create friction and have to be frequently changed to reactivate the wire for continued movement of the teeth. Our advanced self-ligating brackets have less friction and use a specialized clip to hold the wire in place and gently reactivates itself. With less friction and self-tightening action, the result is faster initial un-crowding of the teeth with fewer trips to our office.  

Self-ligating brackets are known to accumulate less plaque than their traditional counterparts. Their sophisticated design is more cleansable and when coupled with proper oral hygiene practices, promotes healthier gums and teeth.
