Get Your Child Their Braces Before School Starts

The month of July is almost over, which means school will soon begin again. Before your kids march back to school, consider getting them their braces while they are still on summer break.

If your child has gapped, crooked, or misaligned teeth, then you may want to consider orthodontics at Signature Smiles. All three of our Houston area dental clinics located in The Woodlands, The Heights, and Humble provides orthodontics to all of our patients.

Taking of your child’s teeth now will make it easier for their teeth to shift into place. Teeth at a younger age are easier to move. Also, when adolescents and teenagers have their teeth straightened early in life, they are able to continue for the rest of their lives with beautifully straight teeth.


At Signature Smiles, we provide all three types of braces available on the market: 3M metal braces, clear ceramic braces, and Invisalign (along with Invisalign Teen). Each orthodontic option comes with its own set of specific benefits (of course, the most important is that they all straighten teeth).

Metal braces are the least expensive and are the strongest braces available. Ceramic are also very strong and rather similar to metal braces. They also match the color of teeth, hence the reason they are commonly referred to as clear braces. Lastly, Invisalign braces are plastic tray aligners that are removable for a few hours per day (for eating and brushing/flossing purposes), and make straightening teeth almost unnoticeable.


Our orthodontist sits down with each patient and discusses how orthodontic treatments work. The ortho dentist also answers any and all questions the pediatric patient and their parents may have. Our goal is to ensure every patient knows what they want and what they will receive after choosing a specific type of braces.

The orthodontist at our Houston area dental office will advise on which type of braces will best fit their needs and will straighten their teeth the quickest.
