As with any dental procedure, our dentist at Universal Dental will kick start your orthodontic appointment with a thorough consultation and examination. This initial appointment is intended to identify all your orthodontic concerns, which can then be mapped onto a treatment plan.
Our dentist in Universal City, TX, attends to patients suffering from a wide range of orthodontic problems, including crossbite, underbite, overbite, spaces between teeth, crowding of teeth, and other misalignment issues.
At Universal Dental, we aim to provide customized orthodontic solutions to our patients. Depending on your situation, our orthodontist may recommend braces, aligners, headgear, splints, or retainers. In very rare cases, a patient may require surgery to correct your malformation.
Unlike other dental procedures where results are seen instantly, orthodontics requires plenty of patience. For instance, in the case of braces, it may be a while before your teeth undergo sufficient or noticeable change. During this waiting period, it’s essential that you observe proper dental hygiene, including regular brushing and flossing, and avoid sugary and sticky foods. Always attend your check-up appointments at Universal Dental without fail, as this is the only way the dentist will be able to keep tabs on your progress and rectify problems as soon as they arise.
