About Orthodontics

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that helps to correct misaligned teeth by moving them, either through the use of braces or other dental technology. Dr. Kendra Pratt is a board-certified orthodontist, meaning she’s received specialized orthodontic training that goes above and beyond what most dentists learn in school. Our office in The Woodlands, TX near Tomball and Magnolia, TX is proud to offer a wide variety of accessible orthodontic services for your convenience!

What Can Orthodontics Do for Me?

If you have a crooked smile, you could be a candidate for orthodontics. Here are just a few things that orthodontics can do for you:

  • Orthodontics can give you a straight, attractive smile.
  • Orthodontic treatment can correct the alignment of your bite for more comfortable chewing.
  • Orthodontics can correct issues such as teeth grinding by changing the way your teeth fit together.
  • Orthodontics can make it easier to care for your teeth by closing gaps and evening out teeth.
  • Orthodontics can align your jaw and help alleviate jaw-related disorders like TMJ.

Our Orthodontic Services

At our office in The Woodlands, we know that every patient has their own unique needs. That’s why we offer a variety of orthodontic treatments to help you find the one that suits your lifestyle. Dr. Pratt is certified to offer traditional metal braces, Invisalign, Empower clear braces, and Damon tie-free braces.

Traditional metal braces are suitable for just about every patient, from adolescents to adults. Invisalign is not well-suited for children but works wonders in adults who are concerned with the appearance of traditional braces. Empower braces work the same way as traditional braces but are completely clear, making them less noticeable against your teeth. The Damon System braces do not use elastic ties like traditional braces, making them more comfortable to wear. There is also a clear option for Damon braces in case you’d prefer a less noticeable variety.
