Reasons for Orthodontics
Orthodontic treatment is not only designed to improve your smile's appearance, but also, to improve the health of your teeth and gums. If you have crowded or overlapping teeth, you may be unable to reach those areas and run the risk of severe tooth decay, gum and bone loss, irregular wear of tooth enamel and possible TMJ/TMD pain. Recent improvements in traditional braces have resulted in smaller, stronger, more efficient and less conspicuous brackets.

Reasons for Ortho
Braces are bonded brackets, archwires and elastic bands that move crowded or spaced teeth into the proper position for appearance and function.
Over a period of time, teeth will shift if constant, gentle pressure is applied. Brackets are bonded to the front surface of each tooth and wires are attached to the brackets with elastic bands. The slight tension on the wire is gently transferred to the bracket through the elastic band.
Today's orthodontic treatment is faster, comfortable and more fashionable than ever for children, teens and adults.
More and more adults today are seeking orthodontic treatment to improve their smile. Often times, because adults usually are more compliant in their orthodontic treatment, their results turn out far greater than with a child and/or a teen. Orthodontic treatment is not only designed to improve your smile's appearance, but also, to improve the health of your teeth and gums. If you have crowded or overlapping teeth, you may be unable to reach those areas and run the risk of severe tooth decay, gum and bone loss, irregular wear of tooth enamel and possible TMJ/TMD pain. Recent improvements in traditional braces have resulted in smaller, stronger, more efficient and less conspicuous brackets. Conventional braces with metal brackets are the most familiar; however, clear and tooth-colored ceramic and plastic brackets are now available.
Translucent "clear" braces and tooth-colored ceramic brackets provide a very aesthetic alternative to traditional metal braces.
Today's clear braces provide the same quality of treatment as metal braces but are simply less noticeable.
Over one million patients, many whom are adults, have benefited from Invisalign®. Invisalign® offers the clinical outcomes people want, all with a removable appliance that's virtually undetectable when worn. It's an ideal solution for the majority of adults.
Invislaign® For TeensInvisalign Teen is the only clear orthodontic aligner therapy designed to address the unique concerns of treating non-adult comprehensive patients.

Six Month Smiles
Are you one of the millions of adults who are unhappy, self-conscious or even embarrassed of your smile?
Many adults spend their entire lives covering their mouths when they laugh, smile or talk. They feel stuck because they do not want to wear metal braces for years or they are concerned that other corrective procedures could be too invasive or too expensive. Now, there is an effective, safe and affordable cosmetic solution that fits your lifestyle.
A revolutionary combination of proven orthodontic techniques, modern materials, and innovative thought - Six Month Smiles® utilizes specialized clear braces to gently straighten and align teeth in an average time of just six months.
Powerprox 6-Month Braces
Powerprox is generally less expensive or at least no more expensive than traditional braces, but straightens teeth in just six months rather than the traditional one-two years treatment process. Powerprox uses the latest in arch-wire technology to move teeth just six months. Powerprox arch-wires move teeth without the traditional brace pressure on a tooth that damages the tooth ligament and require bone absorption, which requires healing time between adjustments. There are no bulky braces because Powerprox braces are almost invisible. Traditional after treatment generally requires an unsightly retainer so Powerprox provides an almost invisible retainer or provides a bonded retainer behind the teeth.
Call us at our Doral location (305) 477-5299 or our Tamiami location (305) 553-5980 for more information!
Reasons For Ortho Appliances
Orthodontic appliances, such as braces and retainers, straighten teeth and correct jaw alignment. Appliances are used during various stages of the orthodontic process, either to retain the new position of teeth, or in some cases to influence the growth of the jaws for a better bite alignment. Appliances may be fixed or removable. Here is a list of orthodontic appliances that dentists may recommend:
