"As a Teen, I got started on my dental journey in Orthodontics first when I got braces. I desire to give all of my orthodontics patients the same level of care that I received." - Dr. Rouse

A Name You Can Trust!

Yelp-rated as one of the Best Dentists in Celina and #1 in Orthodontics, Patients can trust they are receiving the highest ethical and conservative dental treatment in a warm and inviting atmosphere.

“I have never been to such a thoughtful and understanding dentist. The staff were all so friendly and helpful and everyone made my dental experience anxiety-free. Dr. Rouse made me feel so relaxed and confident with his care that I scheduled a second procedure in the same week. Thank you!”   -Kathy S.



CLEAR Braces

Ceramic (clear) braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, ceramic braces are used mainly on older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns. While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger and are more brittle than their metal counterparts. For these reasons, ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper front teeth than on lower teeth.

Traditional (Metal) Braces

Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.

Why Metal / Clear Braces Vs. Clear Orthodontic Trays?

The Top 3 Reasons for Choosing Traditional Braces Over Clear Orthodontic Trays Are:

  1. “Set it and Forget It” – This tried-and-true concept applies to Traditional Orthodontics when it comes to looking for your teen child’s best outcome in the minimum amount of time without making your child worry about where their trays are or progress checks on their own.
  2.  Precise, Provider-Based Results – This is due to the fact that much more of the outcome is placed in the dentist’s hands when brackets and wires are placed in the mouth for 24 hours a day until the next visit. 
  3. Your Teen has Excellent Oral Hygiene – if your teen gets multiple raving reviews from the dental hygienist or Dr. Rouse at their dental check-ups, taking care of traditional braces should be a natural extension of that care and attention.

Bite Turbos

Back Teeth with Bite Turbos

The main point of bite turbos it to keep your teeth apart. 

The point is that if braces are in the ideal position and the upper teeth are resting on the lower brackets, bite turbos for your teeth might be necessary.

Keep in mind, they are temporary.

They typically go on 1st molars or on the inside of the top front teeth if you have a deep bite.

They can be removed later on.

Any tooth they are placed on will most likely hurt for a few days if some of the other teeth are not touching. Don’t worry…once removed they will move back into place.

Elastics Types

Class 2 Elastics without Spacing

Class 3 Elastics without Spacing

Class 2 Elastics WITH Spacing

Posterior Box

Brackets and Wires will get your teeth straighter in line with one another.

But elastics help orient your upper and your lower jaws.

The Six Patterns of Elastics Include: 

  1. Triangle Elastics – These bring your upper canine teeth down by anchoring them to lower canine and premolar.
  2. Class 2 – These bring your lower jaw forward and your upper jaw back. These typically go from the upper canine to the lower molar.
  3. Class 3 – These bring your lower jaw back and upper jaw forward. These typically go from the upper 1st molar to the lower canine.
  4. Box elastics – These are typically used if you have an open bite. They go around your front teeth in a box. They move your front teeth together.
  5. Vertical – These go in a zig-zag or a box to bring your back teeth closer together.
  6. Front Cross – These are used if your midline is off. They move your upper jaw and lower jaw’s midlines closer together.

Orthodontic Retention: Life AFTER Braces

Fixed Vs. Removable Retainers

We Typically Recommend That if You Plan on Keeping Your Wisdom Teeth, You Consider BOTH a Lower Fixed Retainer AND Removable Retainer. 

And if you have a Frenum (Lip to Gum Connecting Ligament) to Have an UPPER Permanent and Removable Retainer at the end of Orthodontic Treatment.
