Two Short-Term Orthodontic Options Give You Quick Results

At Houston Uptown Dentists, we offer two treatments to straighten your smile faster than conventional braces. Six Month Smiles works similarly to traditional braces, except it uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires. Your hardware will be far less noticeable. As the name implies, the average treatment time is only six months!

Invisalign uses a series of plastic trays to gradually straighten your teeth. Along with its speed, Invisalign offers many advantages over other orthodontic options. The trays are:

  • Nearly invisible, because they are made of clear plastic
  • Removable, so it’s easy to enjoy meals and also to brush and floss your teeth
  • Comfortable, because no metal brackets or wires are involved

Protect Your Child’s Smile With Preventive Orthodontics

If you want to keep your children out of braces in the future, we also offer preventive orthodontics from HealthyStart. The system uses a custom-made oral appliance to help guide teeth into a healthy, beautiful smile while your child sleeps. Depending on the degree of orthodontic care required and the age of your child, the device may need to be worn during the day as well.

Specifically, HealthyStart:

  • Improves the position of your child’s teeth
  • Helps ensure a healthy overall shape and size for the inside of your child’s mouth
  • Can prevent sleep apnea and other health issues

Dr. Juarez began offering HealthyStart after seeing stunning results in her own children. You can trust the preventive dental care your dentist trusts!

Common Questions About Orthodontics

How effective are orthodontics?

Our orthodontic options are very effective for correcting a wide variety of orthodontic issues. We offer Invisalign and Six Month Smiles, either of which can straighten your teeth faster than traditional braces. Both methods will give you a straight and beautiful smile in a matter of months, rather than two years or longer like braces take.

What types of orthodontics are available to me?

Houston Uptown Dentists proudly offers Invisalign orthodontics and the innovative Six Month Smiles system. Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic teeth aligners to correct your crooked teeth and bite, working in months rather than years. Six Month Smiles uses clear hardware to straighten only the teeth that show when you smile, making your treatment much quicker. We also offer the HealthyStart system for kids, which can help them avoid full orthodontics altogether.

How much does orthodontics cost?

Each patient is different, and no two patients will require the exact same treatment. That’s why it’s difficult to put a price on orthodontic care without first doing an exam and creating a treatment plan. We invite you or your child in for an exam so we can work up a treatment plan and let you know the cost of straightening your teeth.

Does dental insurance cover orthodontics?

Your dental insurance and/or health insurance may cover some of the cost of orthodontics. If treatment is undertaken strictly for cosmetic reasons (making your teeth look better vs. correcting a misaligned bite), it likely won’t be covered. For orthodontics to be covered, you will need to have insurance before treatment begins. With most policies, a lifetime maximum will be in place. You can also use third-party financing from CareCredit to pay for orthodontics here.

Are orthodontics worth it?

Our patients think so! We’ve treated many patients who have been unhappy with their smiles for years because of gaps, crooked teeth, and other orthodontic issues. Orthodontic treatment not only improves the appearance of your smile, it often improves its function too by moving teeth into proper alignment. Misaligned teeth can contribute to health problems such as TMJ disorders.
