At Advance Orthodontics, our philosophy is to treat each patient the way he or she would want to be treated. This is why Dr. Karotkin is the Houston orthodontist who custom tailors treatment to suit each individual, according to the patient’s needs and desires. Advance Orthodontics Houston features a wide variety of orthodontic options. Whether the treatment involves Invisalign®, clear braces, or traditional braces, we utilize the latest technology and research to achieve the optimal results.
Dr. Karotkin offers both Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen®. Both techniques use clear plastic aligners to gently straighten imperfect smiles. This technique is often favored because of the fact that no one will notice. There’s no wires or brackets glued to the teeth. Another benefit of Invisalign® is you can eat whatever you want. Since the aligners are completely removable, there are no food restrictions.
Braces are the most popular solution to straightening patients’ teeth. They can treat a wide variety of orthodontic problems, including misalignment, crowding, gaps, underbites, overbites, and crossbites. Braces are comprised of three main components: arch wires, brackets and ligatures. While braces do come with food restrictions, it is a small price to pay for a long-lasting, beautiful smile.
