Dedicated to Your Dental Goals
There is no age limit when it comes to getting the smile of your dreams. Our team at Premier Dental Center New Braunfels offers advanced and professional orthodontic treatments to help you achieve a straighter smile, improve crossbites/overbites, resolve issues like TMJ, and give you a better quality of life.
Most people think of orthodontics as a treatment for kids and teens, and while the majority of patients will fall into this age range, our committed staff is experienced in helping patients of all ages. With new advancements in orthodontics, we can customize a treatment plan and offer discreet options to help maintain confidence in a school or in the workplace. As a parent, it may be important to know that the American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children should begin seeing an orthodontist at age seven.
Orthodontic Treatment Options
We have two forms of treatment available from our New Braunfels orthodontist:
Braces: Traditional metal braces are the most common form of orthodontic treatment for kids and adolescents under the age of 18. In fact, 80% of youth will need orthodontic intervention, and metal braces give parents a budget-friendly, reliable option for treatment, with the average time a child will need correction being 2 years depending on the severity of their bite or spacing.
Invisalign®: Invisalign® is a very popular option for teens and adults, as the results are often very comparable (and sometimes better and faster) than traditional braces while allowing people to straighten their teeth discreetly and with confidence. Many patients see improvement in their spacing or bite within just a couple of weeks of wearing the custom-made clear aligners. Because the aligners can be removed, they are typically not recommended for children.
