Pasadena Braces – The Latest in Orthodontics

Having a straight smile and healthy teeth is an important part of one’s overall dental health. Orthodontic treatment corrects malocclusions and helps restructure the face and jaw. Our Pasadena braces specialists work with patients of all ages to improve their smile and the health of their teeth.

Orthodontic appliances are fixed and removable devices that apply gentle pressure to the teeth, influencing jaw growth and helping to straighten them. These appliances are often used to fix overbite and underbite problems, but they are also commonly employed to address other issues with the teeth and jaws such as:

Traditional metal braces consist of a series of small, clear or metallic brackets that are cemented to the front surfaces of each tooth. These are then accompanied by a continuous arch wire which exerts constant, light pressure to the teeth. The arch wire is then tightened periodically to help guide the teeth into their proper positions. These types of braces are the most commonly used in orthodontic treatment.

Today’s orthodontic braces are smaller, lighter and more comfortable than ever. Modern technologies include brackets Dr. Amir made from clear materials that are less visible on your teeth, NASA type wires that move the teeth faster and with greater comfort. The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that children be evaluated for orthodontic treatment no later than age 7. While this may seem like a long time to wait to straighten your teeth, there are many advantages to getting braces in a timely fashion.

Our Sage dental & orthodontics offices in Baytown, Deer Park, Pasadena and Pearland are proud to offer the latest in orthodontics. In addition to traditional metal braces, we provide invisible braces that are virtually undetectable in your mouth and clear aligners that are almost completely transparent.

Invisalign works by using clear trays that are custom-made to fit your teeth. These trays are then replaced by new trays every two weeks until the final aligner is worn and your smile is perfectly straight. Invisalign has become a very popular alternative to traditional braces for adults.
