Orthodontics

No matter what your age is, you deserve to have straight teeth that work well! While many of those opting to get braces are teenagers, it is never too late to get the smile of your dreams. For those that are self-conscious, very inconspicuous options are available.

Orthodontics is the field of dentistry that is focused on lining the teeth up properly in relation to the size and shape of the jaw. There are several ways to straighten your teeth:

Traditional Metal Braces

These traditional style braces have been used for decades. They use brackets that are attached to the teeth and connected with a metal wire. It can be used to straighten teeth as well as correct underbites, overbites and other flaws.

Invisalign

Invisalign uses the latest 3D technology to straighten your teeth by using nearly invisible plastic trays. Invisalign works by identifying how your teeth look now, what they should look like when straightened and creates many different clear trays that help move the teeth in position step by step. The clear tray is barely visible and since it is removable, tasks like eating and brushing your teeth are much easier.

No matter what method works best for you, the team at Edinburg Family Dentistry loves to straighten out smiles and can’t wait to help you with yours!

What we are doing to keep you and your family safe when you come to our office

We hope you and your family are in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While may things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice, and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it is both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up to date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff.

For example:

  • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You will be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
  • We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
  • You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you are offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
  • We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at one at a time.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice.

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors, and friends.
