Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care

Get Your Braces at Pharr’s Arcade Dental

By Arcade Dental / July 19, 2017

We aren’t all born with perfect teeth. In fact, that is quite a rarity. This is why braces were invented.

At Arcade Dental, our Pharr dental clinic offers Six Month Braces to all of our patients who need to have their teeth straightened or adjusted. These braces fix smiles in a shorter amount of time than what is typical, which is usually between 12 and 24 months.

Most patients who receive braces in the US are actually teenagers. In fact, approximately 75% of braces wearers are adolescents or teenagers. This makes sense because getting braces early and fixing teeth sooner rather than later helps protect teeth and boost a person’s confidence.


At our Pharr dental office, we know how important it is to ensure teeth are close together and rightly aligned. This helps combat plaque buildup and the development of cavities. When teeth are close to each other, food particles and plaque have a harder time getting lodged or hiding in and around teeth. If kids get braces, then it will decrease their chances of cavities or periodontal disease (gum disease). Of course, kids still have to brush twice per day and floss every day.

With a straighter and more beautiful smile, kids end up with higher self esteem. With a high self esteem, kids can be more confident in school and around their peers. Our dentists are focused on providing all of our dental patients—kids and adults—with healthy and beautiful smiles.

During the appointment, our dentist will conduct a thorough oral examination to check their overall condition. This allows our dentist to provide a precise diagnosis of how long the process may take and what can be expected with the final result.

At Arcade Dental, we also ensure that patients understand how to take care of their braces. If there are any issues that may arise, our dental staff will address them accordingly so that patients can resume their braces treatment with peace of mind.
