Are you looking for a New Braunfels orthodontist? If so, then your search is over! Smile Workshop is opening up a new location in New Braunfels, and just like our many other locations, our dental services will include orthodontics. Before you come over for a free consultation, let’s go over some of the basics of orthodontics and braces.
When You Need a New Braunfels Orthodontist
If you’re curious as to when you or your child might actually need an orthodontist, there are a few signs:
- You have crowded, misplaced or blocked-out teeth
- You have protruding teeth
- Your teeth meet in an abnormal way or don’t meet at all
- You experience some difficulty talking
- You have difficulty chewing or biting
- Your jaw shift, makes sounds, protrudes or retrudes
- You have grinding or clenching of the teeth
So you’ve seen these signs and you come see our New Braunfels orthodontist. If they decide that braces will be the best course of action, depending on the severity of your case, you will have two options for reparative orthodontic equipment – traditional braces or Invisalign braces.
The first and most common option is traditional braces. Using metal bands and wires, our New Braunfels orthodontist will gradually straighten your teeth. It doesn’t matter how old you are, because it’s never too late to get the brilliant smile that you deserve! If you have questions about traditional braces, our orthodontic experts can answer any of your questions.
Your second option for braces is Invisalign or “invisible” braces. Without the use of metal bands and wires, Invisalign Braces use clear, plastic aligners that gradually position and straighten your teeth. These work more like a retainer where they can be removed for eating, brushing and flossing. To know whether or not your teeth can be successfully straightened with Invisalign braces, speak with your New Braunfels orthodontist.
Don’t let a crooked smile stand in the way of you or your child’s self-confidence! Contact Smile Workshop today and schedule an appointment with our friendly New Braunfels orthodontist.
