If you or your child has crooked teeth or a bad bite, call and schedule an appointment with LifeSmiles by Randy Mitchmore D.D.S.
Did you know that orthodontics remodels your own tissue? That’s right because of the constant pressure the wires and brackets gently reshape your bone moving your teeth into the desired position.
Types of Braces
Conventional-Conventional wires and brackets consist of brackets that are attached to the fronts of teeth. Those brackets are connected to wires that your orthodontic dentist in Houston will adjust every two weeks or so dependent on your orthodontic prescription.
While some patients will only wear conventional braces for 9 to 12 months, others may have to wait and see for 2 years.
Clear Plastic Aligners-LifeSmiles in Houston uses Invisalign® to straighten teeth. These removable clear plastic aligners straighten teeth and are less invasive that conventional wires and brackets.
Invisalign® is best for those with mild to moderate bite problems and patients with tipped and crooked teeth.
People see results in 9 to 18 months after visiting with their Houston Invisalign® dentist every 6 weeks.
Look and Feel Natural
One of the biggest advantages of dental implants is how they look and feel. In fact, no one will ever know you have had dental implants placed unless you tell them. It will be your little secret between you and Dr. Mitchmore.
The teeth that are placed on top of your implants mimic light and shine just like natural teeth do giving you the confidence to flash your new grin.
Chronic tooth pain is a sign of something more sinister. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Mitchmore if you notice any pain regardless of how severe it is.
Any pain is an indication that something is probably wrong with the inside of the tooth. Bacterial infections are common with tooth decay and need to be treated quickly to avoid an abscess and root canal therapy.
