With smart phones today there is an app for everything. More recently they have come up with some very helpful apps for orthodontic patients. The team here at West Houston Orthodontics recommends a few that we have found very useful. The best part about them is they are FREE and very user friendly.
One of the apps you can download is called ibraceshelp. This application is a great tool for those wearing braces. It includes information on oral hygiene tips, foods to avoid, how to place elastics, what to do in an event of an emergency and it even comes with a brushing timer. All the links include visual aids in order to make it even easy to understand. This app is a great tool for all patients in treatment at West Houston Orthodontics.
Another great app is more targeted to our Invisalign patients. This app is called alignontime. This tool helps you calculate when you will change aligners and when you’re predicted to be done with treatment. It will also sync into your calendar on your phone. Many of our patients Invisalign patients in Houston have told Dr. Tabakman this app is extremely helpful to keep up with your aligner schedule.

Dr. Tabakman and Team at West Houston Orthodontics are excited to introduce a new product called AcceleDent. This product has been proven to reduce treatment either with braces or Invisalign in half the time. All you have to do is use AcceleDent 20 minutes per day through out your treatment.
AcceleDent uses a clear tray that you place in your month while vibrations called micropulses gently accelerate the movement of your teeth. These micropulses can also make your orthodontic treatment not so painful. Patients have also found they are not as sore after an adjustment or when placing a new aligner.
This product is proven, safe and easy to use! Our Patients here at West Houston Orthodontics have found AcceleDent to make treatment more comfortable and faster with braces and Invisalign.
Call our office today to find out how you can get started with AcceleDent today!

If you’re interested in an alternative to the traditional metal braces and Invisalign is also not an option, Dr. Tabakman now offers SimpliClear in Houston. SimpliClear is a traditional clear bracket but the difference is this product also offers a CLEAR wire as well. As many of you know the arch wire performs the aligning of the teeth. Until now the only thing available was a stainless steal wire that went across through the brackets. SimpliClear is metal free, completely clear and does not stain.
Celebrities are also now wearing them. The very well know singer, Niall Horan from One Direction has SimpliClear.
Call our West Houston Orthodontic office today and set up a complimentary exam to see if SimpliClear braces are for you! 281.752.4222
