The Specialty of Creating Beautiful, Functional Smiles
Orthodontics is a specialty branch of dentistry focused on correcting misaligned jaws and teeth. Orthodontists like Dr. Tabakman, Dr. Bloome and Dr. Khan complete two to three years of additional training after dental school to gain expertise in diagnosing, preventing and treating malocclusion (an improper bite). They shift the teeth into their ideal positions and align the jaws using appliances, such as braces and Invisalign®, to give patients stunning smiles, improved oral health and functional bites.
As certified specialists in orthodontics, our Bellaire and Houston orthodontists have the knowledge and skill to determine what’s causing your malocclusion and develop a personalized treatment plan to fix it. While braces or Invisalign alone may be enough to give you outstanding results, Dr. Tabakman, Dr. Bloome and Dr. Khan are also trained in dentofacial orthopedics, which is the technical term for guiding dental and facial growth with appliances. Whatever your orthodontic needs, our specialists are here to help. To find out how an orthodontist can benefit your smile, book a free consultation at Houston Orthodontic Specialists online or by calling our office at (281) 752-4222 (West Houston) or (713) 667-6000 (Bellaire).
Children should see an orthodontist by the age of seven to have their smile assessed. Our kid-friendly offices will put them at ease.
The teenage years are the most common time to start orthodontic treatment and we can make the process stress-free and fun.
