"What Are The Benefits Of Receiving Orthodontic Treatment?"

Straighter Teeth Benefit more than your esthetics

Is it difficult for you to properly clean your teeth due to crowding? Are you embarrassed by your crooked smile? Straightening your teeth offers you many benefits beyond the cosmetic aspects. Misaligned teeth trap plaque and tartar, leading to gum disease. As this disease progresses, you may experience decaying teeth, bone loss and even systemic health issues! With straighter teeth, you can easily and efficiently practice your oral hygiene routine for optimal oral health. Our skilled team of dentists provides comprehensive orthodontics in south Florida and the surrounding area. Explore our full suite of orthodontic treatments for a healthier, straighter smile!

Lasting Benefits of Straightening Your Teeth

Our Comprehensive Orthodontic Solutions

We offer properly fitted mouthguards to protect your mouth and teeth from injury. When worn during sports or other physical activity, these shock-absorbing guards take on the impact, protecting your jaw, teeth and soft tissues from serious damage. They can also guard your teeth with a protective barrier if you suffer from bruxism (also known as teeth grinding). If you suffer from sleep apnea, you may also benefit from this versatile device, because with a mouthguard in place, your jaw moves forward, opening your airway and preventing your airway from being closed or blocked.

We provide traditional braces in south Florida, the time-tested solution for straightening teeth. Braces can treat a number of orthodontic concerns, including overbites, underbites, crooked teeth, gaps and malocclusion due to thumb sucking. If your child or teen is suffering from crowded or misaligned teeth, you can schedule a free braces consultation today!

Our dentists are Invisalign® certified in each of our south Florida offices. We can straighten teeth using a series of custom-made clear aligners that you’ll wear 22 hours per day every day for the best results. However, the convenient solution of Invisalign allows you to remove your aligners, making it possible to eat your favorite foods and efficiently keep your oral hygiene up. These aligners are nearly invisible and much more comfortable than traditional braces, so you’ll be able to show off your smile, all throughout your Invisalign treatment!

If you like the idea of braces but want something less visible, we’re also trained to provide Six Month Smiles in Fort Lauderdale and the surrounding area. This orthodontic solution puts a modern spin on traditional braces, allowing us to straighten your teeth in less time … and with less embarrassing clear braces! We also offer clear aligners with this option. Contact us today to learn more.
After your orthodontic intervention, our dentists may recommend a retainer to protect your newly straightened teeth and ensure they retain their alignment. We can provide you with high-quality retainers, too, so you can continue to enjoy your gorgeous new smile.
We recommend having your child examined by a skilled orthodontist by the age of 7, in order to prevent long-term structural issues. Our dentists may recommend a palatal expander for your child or teenager, if the dentist sees a need to widen their upper jaw. This common orthodontic treatment prevents tooth overcrowding, which could cause you pain and lead to tooth extractions later on. Also, a palatal expander gives your child’s developing teeth room to properly grow.

If your narrow upper jaw is not treated in childhood, your dentist may recommend a maxillary skeletal expander (MSE) for adults and teens over the age of 17. Our dentists are specially trained in placing MSEs in south Florida. This advanced device eliminates the need for surgery. The MSE can treat sleep apnea and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder.
