Teeth need to be correctly aligned in order to function properly. Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that focuses on proper tooth alignment for health or cosmetic purposes.
There are many different reasons that a person might need to see an orthodontist. Some of the common problems that orthodontists treat are overbites, underbites, protrusions, crooked or crowded teeth, and spacing issues. While many people associate orthodontic work with the teenage years, people of all ages can benefit from orthodontics.
Orthodontists can help young children overcome bad oral habits like thumb sucking and older adults straighten their teeth with subtle equipment like ceramic braces or aligners.
Today, orthodontic work is more common than ever before. But that doesn’t mean that every practicing orthodontist is an expert. In the US, only 25% of orthodontists are certified by the American Board of Orthodontics. ABO-certified orthodontists complete graduate medical programs and attend competitive residency programs to ensure that they are trained in their area of specialty. Dr. Bar is proud to be a Board-certified orthodontist in the Houston area.
Dr. Bar is a member of various boards and has been recognized by his peers as an orthodontic expert. He was selected as one of 2019’s 40 under 40 by Incisal Edge Magazine, a leading publication for dental professionals.
You’re unique — and your treatment should be, too
Orthodontic treatment is not a one-size-fits-all approach, and the type of care a child or adolescent receives is different than the type of care an adult will receive. No matter what your special case requires, you can be certain that Adventure Orthodontics will customize the best care plan for your treatment and your lifestyle.
Braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment, and for good reason. They are simple, easy to wear, and very effective. Braces work by gently moving the teeth with a set of brackets and wires. When you get braces installed, your orthodontist will attach brackets to the surface of the teeth that need to be moved. Then, the orthodontist gradually pulls the teeth into alignment by making small adjustments to the wires that connect these brackets. The wires are held in place using rubber bands. An orthodontist can change the color of these rubber bands, giving kids a fun opportunity to customize the look of their braces.
While braces used to be large and uncomfortable, modern orthodontics has majorly improved this technology. Today’s braces have smaller brackets with a more subtle look and a greater ability to subtly move the teeth. Discover the benefits of modern braces for yourself at Adventure Orthodontics. Dr. Bar has helped improve countless smiles through braces and can create a personalized orthodontic plan based on your needs.
If you think braces are only for teenagers, think again. People of all ages use braces to straighten their teeth. While many adults choose traditional metal braces, others feel self-conscious with a mouth full of metal. Clear braces are a great alternative to traditional braces because they use the same technology in a more subtle way.
Clear braces work in the same way as traditional braces, but they use clear or tooth-colored brackets in place of dark metal brackets. These brackets are the same size and shape of traditional brackets and straighten teeth in the same amount of time. Clear braces require a little more maintenance than traditional braces because they can become discolored, but the people who choose this option find the maintenance to be well worth it.
If you want a straighter smile but don’t like the look of traditional braces, Dr. Bar can help. Call us today to learn if clear braces are the right option for you.
For years, braces were the only tool that orthodontists had to straighten teeth. Clear aligners like Invisalign were first created in the 90s and have changed the game. Invisalign is a subtle and effective way to adjust teeth without using metal or wires.
Invisalign is a clear aligner that is professionally fitted to your teeth. The aligners completely cover the teeth’s surface but are designed in a way that makes them hard to notice. You will receive new aligners every few weeks that gradually shift your teeth into the correct place. Some people will need attachments to help anchor the aligners. These attachments are placed on the surface of your teeth.
One of the best things about Invisalign is that the aligners are removable. This means that you can easily brush and floss your teeth during your orthodontic treatment. You can also remove your aligners and enjoy foods that are off-limits to people with braces. If you are in interested in straightening your teeth without braces, Adventure Orthodontics can help. Call us today to schedule a consultation.
After an orthodontist straightens your teeth, it’s important to use a retainer to maintain the changes that have been made. Teeth that have been moved with braces or aligners are likely to shift back to their original place. Retainers prevent this from happening by holding the teeth in position for a certain number of hours each day.
Retainers are custom-made devices that use hard plastic and wires to help maintain the position of your teeth after they have been straightened. Some individuals will need permanent retainers installed, while others will use a removable retainer. Permanent retainers (also known as fixed retainers) are usually recommended for patients who had significant bite issues. Removable retainers are usually recommended for people who had crowded teeth or other simple orthodontic issues. Removable retainers are often only worn at night, making them an easy way to care for the teeth.
Dr. Bar and the team at Adventure Orthodontics can fit you with a retainer to help you maintain your orthodontic work. Call us today to learn more.
