Our orthodontic services in The Woodlands
At our office in The Woodlands, Texas, we offer a full range of orthodontic care options, including teeth alignment, teeth whitening, and orthodontic appliances for children and adults
Our teeth alignment services include traditional braces, Damon System braces, and clear aligners, such as Invisalign, Empower clear braces, and the Spark Clear Aligner System. Each patient is unique, and the best teeth alignment option for a patient depends on the person’s starting point and goals. At a consultation appointment, we can help you decide which teeth alignment option is the best choice. We offer teeth alignment services for children, teens and adults at our orthodontic office in The Woodlands.
We offer Forsus appliances, habit appliances, and other early interventional orthodontic services. Forsus appliances help correct overbites by moving a child’s bottom arch of teeth forward and upper arch of teeth backward. This can help prevent jaw surgery and unnecessary tooth extractions. Habit appliances help children break the harmful habit of sucking their thumb. If left unchecked, thumb sucking can cause the child’s front teeth to flare out and cause an open bite. Our early interventional orthodontic treatments for children help ensure healthy musculoskeletal growth. If interventions are appropriate, Dr. Kendra Pratt can help ensure that your child’s adult teeth grow into a healthy position. Dr. Pratt uses expanders to help promote a beautiful arch form, make room for erupting adult teeth, and correct crossbites. Additionally, we build custom mouthguards for children and teens, so they can keep their smile safe when they participate in sports.
We also offer TMJ treatment for patients who experience pain or discomfort with the temporomandibular joints (TMJ) in their jaws. When a patient has a problem with his TMJ, the problem is usually the result of a misaligned bite that causes unnecessary tension. With TMJ treatments, Dr. Kendra Pratt can help realign a patient’s teeth so that the patient can eliminate pressure on his TMJ. TMJ treatments typically involve the patient using a part-time or full-time splint to realign his jaw. Longer-term components of TMJ treatments include braces and a night-guard to protect the patient from grinding his teeth. TMJ treatment can help address typical symptoms that come with TMJ tension, including headaches, stiffness in the neck, and a clicking jaw.
