Oral Braces Are the Perfect Gift for Christmas

Christmas Day is only a couple weeks away. This means there isn’t a whole lot of time left to get your kids the best gift of the year: braces. Our dental office in southwest Houston offers top of the line braces at a very affordable price.

Our Houston dentists encourage early orthodontics. We know that having a beautiful and healthy smile will improve a person’s life in various ways. Here are just some of the ways a great smile for Christmas can help your child:

  • HEALTH: Straight teeth help ensure a healthy smile by keeping plaque and food particles within reach. When teeth are crooked or gapped, plaque buildup can easily hide between teeth, making it difficult to remove it. Not removing plaque can lead to cavities and gum disease.
  • CONFIDENCE: When a smile is straight, it makes it easier to smile. Kids need confidence when they go through the grades of school. Growing confidence will help ensure they become more active in school and could help with their grades and their ability to make friends.

A BEAUTIFUL SMILE FOR EVERY CHRISTMAS

At Centra Dental, we know how much braces can improve someone’s life. Braces aren’t just a great gift for this Christmas. Braces are the one gift that will keep giving every year. Braces beautify teeth for the lifetime of our patients, which means getting braces once will carry on throughout every Christmas. So when you purchase your child a set of braces this December, you are giving them a Christmas gift for a lifetime.

Before Christmas Day arrives, bring the family to our southwest Houston dental clinic and find out how braces can help. Our kids dentists and general dentists will conduct thorough evaluations of your kids’ and family members’ teeth to provide thorough diagnoses of their teeth. Braces typically take between 12 and 24 months to complete straightening teeth. Our dentists will inform you of approximately how long it will take.

We look forward to helping you and your family smile bright this Christmas holiday season.

It’s Time to Be Thankful for Your Smile

This is the time of year when we all sit around the table and tell each other what we are thankful for. With all the wonderful thoughts, they are sure to bring a smile to your face. But is your smile one of those things you are thankful for? At Centra Dental, we believe the smile should be something everyone is thankful for, which is why we are offering braces at such a low price.

Our southwest Houston dental clinic provides braces for as low as $1995, making it more than affordable to straighten your smile without creating a financial strain. This Thanksgiving Day, if you are not happy with your smile, take a moment to be thankful for Houston’s best annual deal on braces at Centra Dental. Our goal is to provide beautiful smiles for everyone throughout the year, and not just during the holiday season. But now is the best time to get braces because your dental insurance coverage will be renewed at the beginning of 2018.

WHY DENTAL INSURANCE CAN COVER BRACES

Using your dental insurance now for braces will help ensure you put your dental coverage in the right place. Braces can be covered by dental insurance depending on the severity of the case. The reason braces can be covered is because crooked, misaligned or heavily gapped teeth can actually be a hazard to a person’s health.

Think of Thanksgiving Dinner. If a person with heavily gapped or crooked teeth is eating turkey and dressing, food particles can easily become stuck in teeth. Or they can become hidden in hard to reach places. This makes it difficult to remove these particles from teeth. These food particles can create plaque buildup that will eat away at the teeth’s enamel. Once the enamel is eaten away, cavities begin to produce, which creates real oral problems. These cavities require dental fillings, but if they worsen, they can require dental crowns, tooth extractions or dental implants.

This is why it is much more efficient to get braces before the dental problems arise. We encourage all parents to bring their kids into our dental office in southwest Houston during this holiday season. Our kids dentists will examine your child’s teeth and their structure to see if braces are the best option. Straightening teeth sooner rather than later is the best way to ensure your child continues with great oral health.

COME GET YOUR BRACES TODAY

If you or your child is in need of braces, then contact Centra Dental today. Our southwest Houston dental clinic, located in the 5 Corners District, is ready to help you achieve your best smile and begin being thankful for a beautiful and healthy smile. Happy Thanksgiving!

Use Your Dental Insurance Before the Year Ends

The 2017 year is coming to an end and with that comes the end of your annual dental insurance coverage. Before December comes to a close, be sure to come to our southwest Houston dental office to get whatever oral needs you have met.

Our dentist clinic in the 5 Corner District accepts most dental insurance plans. This dental coverage is extremely helpful when dealing with oral procedures that could be costly. Depending on the type of coverage plan you have, you may have most of your dental procedure covered by insurance. Since this is the end of the year, we call this the “use it or lose it” time of year.

Here are just some of the dental procedures you can have covered by dental insurance:

  • DENTAL FILLINGS: One of the most common types of dental operations is providing dental fillings to protect teeth. These are necessary when a patient encounters cavities. The cavity is removed and replaced with a dental filling that is made of composite resin.
  • DENTAL CROWNS: If a tooth has suffered major tooth decay, then a dental filling will not suffice. This is when a dental crown will be necessary. Our dentist will remove the decayed areas, leaving only the healthy part of the tooth. Then a dental cap is custom-made and placed over the tooth. These dental crowns are made of either composite resin or porcelain, which are both very durable and have the same look and feel of a natural tooth.
  • BRACES: Depending on the severity of the case, braces can be covered by dental insurance. This is when the teeth are so crooked or misaligned that the teeth become a hazard to the patient’s health. Our dentist will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth to see how severe the case for braces may be. From there, we will find out if the oral braces can be covered by insurance.

There are other dental procedures that can be covered with dental insurance, including root canals, dental implants, and tooth extractions. Contact Centra Dental in southwest Houston to schedule your dental appointment. We look forward to helping you end 2017 in healthy fashion.

Braces: The Best Treat for Your Kid This Halloween

The most frightening time of year (sort of) is coming up: Halloween. So there will be a lot of trick or treating going on. One of those treats should be braces. Of course, not in the bowl of candy being doled out, but for your kids at our awesome dental office in Bellaire.

Let the end of October be the time where your child received their best treat: a beautiful and healthy smile. This can easily happen with braces.

Braces at Centra Dental are very reasonably priced and are the strongest available. Our dentists are able to thoroughly analyze your child’s teeth and see exactly how long the braces will take to straighten their teeth. The average time is between 12 and 24 months, but it all depends on the extensiveness of the case.

KIDS BRACES AT CENTRA DENTAL

At our southwest Houston dental office, our dentistry staff understands the importance of having straight and aligned teeth. Having a straight smile ensures that food particles, like Halloween candy, have a hard time getting stuck in hard to reach places or between teeth. This helps fight against plaque buildup, which directly leads to cavities and gum disease (periodontal disease).

When parents choose to get their children braces, there always plenty of questions that need to be answered. Our dentists have heard and answered them all and are more than willing to provide all the information required. We want every patient to go into the procedure of receiving Houston braces with as much knowledge and understanding as possible.

So once the bag of candy has been filled to the top, come to Centra Dental to get the best treat of the year. This is one treat that will last much longer than chocolate and will also provide way more smiles. Contact our dental office in southwest Houston today. We look forward to providing your child with a straight and healthy smile.

Houston Braces Are a Big Thing! Come Get Yours

With nearly 2.5 million people in Houston, there are plenty of people who need braces. You may end up being one of them. If you suffer from misaligned, crooked, or gapped teeth, then you should consider receiving braces.

The braces at Centra Dental are designed specifically to adjust your teeth and make your smile as straight and beautiful as possible. Our southwest Houston dental office provides 3M traditional metal braces to our patients, which are the strongest types of braces available. These braces, along with being the strongest, enable the teeth to adjust much quicker.

Typically, braces take between 12 and 24 months to adjust teeth. Our Houston braces may take faster or longer, depending on the severity of the case. The dentists of Centra Dental will conduct thorough examinations of your teeth to assess the approximate time it will take for teeth to straighten.

WHAT TO DO AFTER APPLYING BRACES

Once you have your braces, you need to continue your daily oral hygiene routines of brushing and flossing (people often utilize bristle sticks). Rinsing is another best practice for keeping the teeth and mouth clean while wearing metal braces.

Your dentist will inform you of how often you should come in to have your braces tightened. The reason the braces need to be tightened is because the teeth begin to move into place. If they are not tightened, then the teeth will remain where they have moved, which defeats the purpose of having braces. Be sure to always go to these tightening appointments.

WHAT TO DO AFTER GETTING THE BRACES OFF

Once the braces come off, there is still some maintenance to conduct. We will provide you with a retainer, which must be worn consistently. If it is not worn, then the teeth will shift out of place, which will unstraighten your smile. Dental checkups will continue to see how the teeth are faring. Our dentist will inform you of how long you will need to wear your retainer.

Why Kids Should Get Braces in Houston
