Our Team of dental professionals is here to help you with your braces.
Braces are simple devices made of a light, metal wire and tiny rubber bands that orthodontics, a dentist that specializes in aligning or reshaping teeth and jaw bones, strategically attaches to a patient’s teeth to straighten teeth or treat a wide variety of other orthodontic conditions.
Patients adjust to these devices during treatment. It is encouraged to get them as early as possible or as soon as a dentist recommends them.
When a person needs to get braces varies depending on the condition(s) that needs to be treated. Some patients will need braces more urgently than others. The purpose is to fix teeth or jaw bones that have become improperly positioned due to a number of factors ranging from tooth crowding to adult teeth that have grown in sideways and are causing pain or nerve damage.
These are issues that a person may notice and seek out orthodontic treatment for through braces. Other reasons to get them are to improve appearance or to keep a condition from becoming worse. For example, a child may need to get these devices when crowding teeth and anticipated future tooth growth are expected to cause undue pain.
The costs of your braces treatment may usually be covered by your dental insurance plan or extended dental coverage.

My experience at Houston Cosmetic Dentistry was outstanding. I needed a dentist in the area for a teeth cleaning and regular checkups. Dr. Evan and his staff are friendly and I liked the positive atmosphere.-Eric Banks
