How Dental Braces Work

No matter what type of braces make the most sense for straightening your smile, the basic principle is the same. Braces work by slowly shifting your teeth into the desired position. You may experience a little bit of soreness in the days following the adjustment of your braces. Most people find that this soreness is manageable with over the counter pain relievers. At Lovett Dental Missouri City, we’re proud to provide dental braces to our TX community.

As your teeth shift into place, we’ll regularly assess and make adjustments to your personalized treatment plan. When your teeth are in place for a healthy, perfect smile, we’ll remove your braces. You’ll get a retainer to wear at night to ensure that your teeth remain in place over time.

Types Of Braces

Whether you’re looking for dental braces in TX for your child or yourself, there are a number of different options that can suit your needs. At Lovett Dental Missouri City, we always start with a free consultation to help you learn more about the different types of braces we offer, including:

  • Traditional metal braces- These are popular with kids and teens, as you can add colorful rubber bands to make a statement with your smile.
  • Clear braces- Also known as ceramic braces, this style is popular with adults and older teens. Clear braces are less visible to others. While some patients prefer the look of clear braces, it’s important to note that they are less durable than metal braces. They also require extra care for oral hygiene.
  • Fastbraces- Fastbraces are different than traditional braces, and straighten the teeth In as little as three months (compared to the 18-36 months typically required for traditional braces). Many people also find that Fastbraces are more comfortable than traditional braces.
  • Clear plastic aligners- This option provides you with clear aligners to shift your teeth into place. They’re not noticeable to others, and you remove them when you eat. You’ll need to wear your aligners for at least 18 hours each day. As your teeth shift, we’ll replace your aligners to move you closer and closer to your ideal smile.

When you come in to see us for your consultation, we’ll talk with you about which braces option makes the most sense for you or your child. Please feel free to ask any questions or bring up any concerns. We want to make sure you’re completely comfortable with the option you choose to straighten your teeth.
