Affordable Orthodontic Care in Northeast Dallas

Braces in Dallas, TX - Skillman Family DentistryVery few people are born with perfectly straight teeth. If you’re one of the many who have crooked teeth or bite issues, Dr. Henry can help you have movie-star quality teeth and the smile you have always wanted.

Traditional braces are the time-honored method of straightening teeth for both adults and children. Made with medical-quality stainless steel, metal bands and brackets bond onto your teeth. These bands are linked using thin wires that put gentle pressure on the teeth, causing them to move in small increments over time. As the teeth move, Dr. Henry adjusts the pressure to the appropriate area, so the teeth and roots slowly shift into the desired position. This process takes several months so the teeth can move without causing any damage to the supporting roots and bone.

Skillman Family Dentistry provides Invisalign clear aligners as another method to achieve a straighter smile. Call Dr. Henry at (469) 998-9822 today so he can assess your unique situation and determine if braces would be helpful for you.
