Clinical Dental Care


Records show the first pair of metal braces were invented in France in 1728. Since then, traditional metal braces have thankfully evolved into a rather simplified method for straightening crooked or misaligned teeth.

At Lake Jackson Dental Care, we specialize in orthodontics and offer only the very best in traditional metal braces. Our orthodontist conducts a thorough examination of each patient who is in need of braces and assesses what type of braces should be used and how long they should be worn.


Traditional metal braces have continued to advance (including advancing to ceramic braces and clear braces) over the past several hundred years. With the current state of medical technology, the advancement continues to progress quickly, making the process of receiving and wearing braces easier for the patient. Traditional metal braces are still noticeable when worn, but are not nearly as visually obvious as they once were. Metal braces, however, are about one thing: creating a healthy and beautiful smile. Here are the reasons why our patients choose to receive traditional metal braces:

Straight Teeth - This is the most obvious reason. From childhood to adulthood, we have had patients of all ages come in for braces in order to produce a more beautiful smile. It is very common to be born with crooked, gapped or misaligned teeth, but that doesn’t mean they have to remain that way.

Confidence - Confidence is connected to the smile. Many patients who visit our dental office in Lake Jackson say they lack self-confidence because of their teeth. They feel they are unsightly, which keeps them from fully smiling or laughing in public. We believe everyone should be as confident as possible, and we understand much of that confidence stems from a healthy and beautiful smile.

Healthy Teeth - When teeth are gapped, crooked or misaligned, this can cause problems being able to efficiently clean teeth. Food and plaque are able to hide within the gaps or along the crooked edges, which could cause cavities or gum disease. Also, if teeth are impacted, the problem of plaque buildup and cavities could worsen.


As we mentioned before, our orthodontist conducts a thorough examination of every patient’s teeth. We take orthodontics very seriously because we understand how much it affects the health and confidence of our patients.

Our staff strives to keep an open line of communication with all of our patients in case they have any questions about their braces. If ever any problems occur with their braces, our patients know they can come in at any time to have the problem solved. We love to see healthy and beautiful smiles from all of our patients and they know they are in good hands at our dentist office.
