Straighter Teeth At An Affordable Cost
Home > Orthodontics
People of all ages in the Richmond, TX, area live every day with smile imperfections such as overcrowded teeth, misaligned bites, and excessive tooth spacing. In addition to feeling self-conscious about smiling, these smile imperfections pose as a greater threat to the longevity and health of the teeth and gums. At Studio Dental of River Park, Dr. Tien Dang is highly trained to provide orthodontic services that help our patients achieve the beautiful smiles that they’ve always wanted.
Orthodontic Screenings for Children
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends a child’s first orthodontic screening by the age of 7. If that seems young, the goal is to determine where your child’s mouth is in terms of growth and development. If discovered early, smile imperfections can usually be treated with palatal expanders or tooth spacers to prepare for braces around age 12, or once all their permanent teeth have come in. Earlier treatments make it easier to work within natural growth patterns, resulting in less trauma and pain, and a significant reduction in the amount time required to wear braces for your child’s teeth to move back into perfect place.
Orthodontic Screenings for Adults
During an adult orthodontic screening, 3D digital x-rays will be taken, and your teeth positioning and bite alignment will be evaluated by Dr. Tien Dang for your smile assessment. When teeth are not properly aligned, serious issues that are not necessarily painful, but are doing harm to your teeth and gums, are actively happening. In this appointment, you will learn about what is happening to your teeth and gums due to teeth misalignment. We are here to listen to your smile improvement goals, and to answer any questions about treatment options.
Invisalign and Clear Aligner Therapy
Virtually unnoticeable to others, Invisalign clear plastic aligners works just as well as traditional fixed metal braces. Invisalign also causes less mouth discomfort than traditional braces, and you can still eat all of your favorite foods! Many dental insurance plans now offer coverage towards some of the costs for removable braces like Invisalign, so contact Studio Dental of River Park today!
It’s never too late to achieve the beautiful, natural-looking smile you’ve always wanted. More than just a beautiful smile, the real beauty lies in protecting the longevity and health of your teeth by having perfectly straight teeth.
