Orthodontics for Adults
read moreIts never too late to improve your smile, straighten your teeth, or correct your bite. Many adults can be treated with Invisalign or clear braces (which are actually ceramic, tooth-colored braces) to achieve a quick, easy, and comfortable improvement of their smiles.
Orthodontics for Children
read moreFor children that do require early treatment, Dr. Karotkin designs a treatment plan using minimal appliances to make the treatment as quick, easy, and painless as possible.
Orthodontics for Teens
read moreThe teenage years are the most common time to undergo orthodontic care. Treatment is usually started once the vast majority of the permanent teeth have grown in.

Today, teenagers have more choices than ever before concerning how the teeth are straightened and the bite is corrected. In addition to traditional metal braces, Dr. Karotkin offers clear braces (which are actually ceramic, tooth-colored braces) as well as Invisalign Teen.

read moreFantastic and fabulous! I and absolutely enthralled at how great a job everyone did at advanced orthodontics. I had gone to visit three other orthodontics before doing a consultation here. The others were too cold on manner, rude, too busy to pay attention or care, or too eager to separate me from my money. When I stepped into this office though, I felt warmed and welcome. Dr. Karotkin was friendly and informative. Unfortunately they did not take my insurance, but it didn't matter to me. The difference in customer service and the result was completely worth the price difference and the drive. Janie, Freddy, Judy, Juanita and everyone handle your teeth with care, and have nothing but smiles to offer you when they greet you. I hated my teeth for 27 years, but now I will be loving them for many years to come. Thank Dr. Karotkin and everyone at Advanced Orthodontics. You have made this girl one happy smiling bartender.

read moreStaff was incredibly helpful and Dr. Karotkin was able to provide excellent advice about my need for orthodontic care. I had previously seen another orthodontist who only offered an invasive method to straightening my teeth. After the initial consult with Dr. Karotkin, he offered options that did not include invasive measures. I will always recommend advanced orthodontics to anyone that needs orthodontic treatment.

read moreDr Karotkin and staff is the number one orthodontist office in the city of Houston. For my daughter's last orthodontist appointment, Dr Karotkin and staff made an exception and saw my daughter on a day reserved for new patients only, due to my daughter is currently attending college. I have nothing but positive things to say about Dr Karotkin and his entire professional staff. Everyone has been extremely helpful and thoughtful and I will tell others how wonderful and personable the entire staff is.

Houston Invisalign for Teens and
read moreDr. John Karotkin and the staff at Advance Orthodontics are proud to provide Invisalign treatment in the Houston, Texas area. Invisalign is as comfortable and easy way to gently straighten your teeth without the wires and brackets that go along with braces. It consists of a series of clear aligners that can correct gapped teeth, overbites, underbites, open bites, overly crowded teeth, and even crossbites. They are also removable, meaning there are no food restrictions and easy oral hygiene. The best part?
Dental Checkup in Houston

In our office, each patient is given a thorough clinical evaluation by the doctor prior to planning or initiating any treatment. We believe that individual attention from the doctor is an irreplaceable element in caring for our patients.
What to Expect During Your First

After photographs and x-rays are taken, one of our skilled doctors will examine your mouth and teeth and explain what your options are. Once a decision has been reached on how you'd like to proceed, the doctor will design a custom treatment plan specifically for you. Financial arrangements will be explained by our Treatment Coordinator. If appropriate, treatment can often be started the same day as the initial consultation.

Clear Dental Braces in Houston
read moreClear braces are also known as ceramic braces. They are actually more "tooth colored" than clear, so they are much less noticeable than traditional metal braces, especially from a distance. This means, when you make in on the jumbotron at a Houston Texans' game, everyone will see your beaming smile and not your braces. Clear braces work essentially the same way as metal braces. A clear or tooth colored bracket is attached to each tooth, and an arch wire is then placed into the brackets. The wire slowly moves the teeth into position.
Dental Braces in Houston TX
read moreA person's smile says a lot about them, but not everyone feels confident when they smile. Unfortunately, not everyone is born with a pearly white and perfectly straight set of teeth. Sometimes crooked teeth can not only make a person feel embarrassed, but they can lead to problems with eating, speaking or even jaw pain issues. One of the most trusted ways to fix a crooked smile is with braces. They've been widely used for over 100 years for one reason: they work. Advance Orthodontics in Houston, TX offers traditional braces for all types of patients.
3D Dental Imaging in Houston
read moreOccasionally, traditional, two-dimensional x-rays do not provide the diagnostic information necessary to make critical treatment decisions. In these cases, three-dimensional x-rays (CT scans or CAT scans) are important in the diagnosis and treatment of orthodontic patients. These images allow us to visualize the oral anatomy in ways never before possible. Furthermore, modern CT machines expose the patient to far less radiation than in years past, making the scans extremely safe. While many Houston dentists and orthodontists have only very recently begun to utilize CT images (or still do not use them at all), Dr. Karotkin has read hundreds of images, giving him extensive experience in this area.
