Why Kids Should Get Braces in Houston

Why Kids Should Get Braces in Houston

Our dental staff and dentists at our southwest Houston office love kids. This is why we try our best to ensure that every child is educated on how to best take care of their teeth. Healthy teeth promotes overall health.

One way to help promote healthy teeth is to have straight and aligned teeth. This assists in keeping cavities at bay by ensuring that food particles, that can turn into plaque, do not hide between or around teeth. Straight teeth help fight against plaque and possible gum disease (periodontal disease) by making it easy to remove plaque through brushing and flossing.


For those with gapped, misaligned, and crooked teeth, braces are the best solution for straightening teeth. In fact, they’re the only solution.

Braces for kids in Houston is our primary focus. We know how important it is for young kids, like teenagers and adolescents, to receive braces. Our traditional metal braces align the teeth so that kids don’t have to worry about hard to reach areas in the mouth. The chances of decay are diminished when teeth are aligned properly.

Along with assisting with a healthy lifestyle, kids with straight teeth become more confident in their everyday routines. A beautiful smile encourages them to smile more and interact socially without hesitation.


Braces are typically known for being expensive. This isn’t the case at Centra Dental. Our Bellaire dental office provides braces starting at the low price of $1995. This allows our dental patients to find affordable braces in Houston, which can be difficult to find at most dental offices.

At Centra Dental our dentists will conduct thorough exams and check the patient’s teeth to find misaligned and other possible issues. After the dental exam, our dentists will be able to inform the patient of approximately how long the braces will take to straighten the teeth.
