Customized & Partial Treatment | Orthodontist Colleyville & Southlake TX | Schroeder Orthodontics

Customized & partial treatment 

At Schroeder Orthodontics, we understand that all our patients' individual needs are different. There is no "one-size-fits-all" solution when it comes to straightening your teeth. That's why at our offices in Southlake and Colleyville, we offer customized treatment options to suit your budget and lifestyle. 

 

What is partial treatment?

Although we provide comprehensive orthodontic care which typically involves full braces on the upper and lower teeth, we also understand some patients have limited concerns and want limited treatment. You may only have one tooth out of alignment, or need correction in only one jaw, which requires less work and a much shorter treatment time. We can therefore customize a limited treatment plan just for you to match these needs, which we refer to as 'partial treatment'.

Partial treatment

Partial treatment for children

Sometimes our younger patients need a little extra time with braces before they get a full set. Many orthodontists use partial braces to treat minor orthodontic issues in kids before they get their full set of braces in their early teenage years. Partial braces go on the upper or lower front teeth to provide early minor correction to crooked teeth. Instead of putting brackets on every tooth, partial braces consist of brackets on the front four or six teeth.

These braces are only used for a short period of time to straighten teeth into the correct positions. Treatment time usually just lasts between 10 and 12 months. After this treatment, kids go on to a complete set of braces to once most of the adult teeth are in to correct any crowding, spacing, jaw or bite issues. Partial braces can make it easier to straighten the rest of the teeth later.
