An orthodontist is a specialist in straightening teeth and aligning jaws. They have advanced training in orthodontics and spend 100% of their time helping patients achieve healthier smiles and better self-esteem by identifying, preventing and treating bad bites (malocclusions).
An orthodontist has many tools and techniques to help you achieve a fixed smile. Retainers are one of them. Removable retainers are the kind you put in and take out. Traditional Hawley retainers are made of wire and a hard, plastic-like material. Nearly-invisible removable Essix retainers are available, too. They are molded from your teeth and are made of a transparent, plastic-like material. Permanent retainers are placed and removed by your orthodontist. Each is a custom-fitted wire that is bonded to the tongue-side of your teeth. Talk to a TAO orthodontist near you and find out which option will work best for your needs.

TAO orthodontists are proud Texans and we love learning about the rich history of the state as much as you do! We were surprised to learn that there’s a Texan connection to the Mexican holiday of Cinco de Mayo, which celebrates Mexican victory against the French army in the Battle of Puebla. The battle was led by General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguin, who was born in the town of Goliad in 1829 when Texas was still part of Mexico. Zaragoza also helped defeat the Mexican dictator Santa Anna (yes, the very same!) www.texasortho.org/listings/
