Dental Braces for Keller & Watauga
While braces may be commonly seen as a hallmark of middle school and high school, the truth is patients of all ages are welcome to have their smile transformed through orthodontics. Not only can this treatment vastly enhance the aesthetic value of your smile, but it also creates a more ideal environment for proper dental hygiene and can correct developmental issues such as crowded teeth, a misaligned bite, and more. At Just for Grins in Keller, Dr. Kristen Angwin are happy to help both children and adults experience firsthand the amazing benefits of choosing braces.
Orthodontic Treatment for Straight Teeth
Once placed over your smile, traditional braces work by applying constant, but gentle force in carefully controlled directions as they guide your teeth into their ideal position. While individual treatment lengths will vary depending on the patient and the scope of their unique needs, patients usually need to wear their braces for 16 to 20 months to ensure full effectiveness, with more in-depth treatment plans lasting up to 30 months. Our Keller, TX dental team can explain this process in much more detail during an initial evaluation and consultation.
Braces for Children
The American Association of Orthodontists strongly advises children should attend an orthodontic evaluation by the age of seven so that it can be determined if treatment is needed. By this time, your child’s first permanent molars and incisors should have come in, and our team at Just for Grins can begin to see signs of crowding or spacing problems, as well as issues with bite. Early treatment can make a big difference in the future of your child’s smile by guiding the growth of their jaw at the earliest possible stage.
12 or 13 is an excellent age to receive braces, as this is usually the time when a child's permanent teeth have all erupted. Dr. Kristen Angwin will be happy to provide guidance and treatment recommendations throughout your family’s regular check-ups so we can all agree on an ideal plan of action.
Clear Braces for Adults
It’s never too late to improve your smile's beauty and health with orthodontic care! At Just for Grins, we're happy to help adults find treatment options which work for their unique situations while still creating the results they deserve. While many people may shy away from the idea of wearing metal braces due to their professional image, the truth is that now there are more aesthetically pleasing material choices available, including clear brackets and less noticeable wires. Adults and teenagers may also be viable candidates for Invisalign, an orthodontic solution consisting of clear, virtually invisible aligners that can correct your smile in an accelerated time frame.
