For more than 20 years, patients have turned to Dr. Leiker for answers to their orthodontic questions. If you don’t see your question listed below, we’re happy to give you an answer in person or on the phone. Call or visit us at our office in The Woodlands, TX just past McCullough Junior High or in Conroe, TX.
- Q: Am I too old for bracesA:
Not at all! One in four Americans in braces is an adult. Not only has the technology behind braces made significant improvements over the years, but there are many options available at our office for the image-conscious grown-up.
- Q: What is 3-D imagingA:
At our offices, we use the i-CAT 3D radiographic imaging machine to gather significantly more information about the state of your jaw and your teeth through 3D imaging. Come on in and let us take your picture.
- Q: What is an orthodontistA:
Dr. Leiker is an orthodontist. He completed years of additional schooling after dental school so that he can bring our community teeth and jaw correction through braces, retainers, expanders, and TMJ treatment.
- Q: Why does my bite matterA:
Orthodontists receive special training to assess the way your teeth come together. If your jaw is positioned improperly, it can lead to a whole host of issues.
Dr. Leiker employs the Roth Technique, so you can be confident that not only will the position of your teeth be corrected, but your bite will be natural and not cause you problems with your TMJ, teeth grinding, or muscle stress while chewing.
