Why Straighten Your Teeth?

If you did not undergo orthodontic treatment as a child, you might have an untreated orthodontic issue that is affecting your dental health and needs to be addressed. For instance, conditions such as overbite, crooked teeth, and underbite can affect the overall health and function of your teeth and jaw. You may experience symptoms such as facial pain, difficulty chewing, and headaches; these symptoms may be linked to a bite disorder or another type of orthodontic issue.

By visiting an orthodontist, you can receive the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment you need to restore balance and health to your smile. At Flower Mound Orthodontics, we offer a wide range of orthodontic treatment options for patients of all ages, including adults. Our team will work with you to explore your options and help you choose the right solution for you.

Types of Braces

The most common type of orthodontic treatment is the traditional metal braces. However, with advancements in orthodontics, there are many more options to choose from. Our team will assess your needs and help you choose the solution that is right for you.

  • Metal Braces: Traditional braces are made of high-quality steel brackets and archwires. They are placed on the front of the teeth and are designed to address anything from minor to complex orthodontic issues.
  • Invisible Braces: Clear, removable aligners that gently shift your teeth during the course of your treatment. Patients can remove their aligners to eat, drink, brush, and floss without restriction.
  • Ceramic Braces: Similar to traditional braces, but they are designed to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.
