Orthodontics in Miami FL
Having a properly aligned smile is about more than just looking your best. A misaligned bite can lead to jaw problems, periodontal disease, and discomfort.
At Premier Dental Solutions, we offer orthodontic treatment to correct common alignment issues and address orthodontic conditions, even from an early age.
Early Intervention Orthodontics
As a family practice, we are able to monitor your child’s growth patterns and diagnose any conditions in their earliest stages. By addressing problems such as overcrowding at a young age, we can help to reduce future treatment times and expense.
Facial orthopedics – Regular exams, including diagnostic x-rays, will alert us to any potential growth problems your child might have. In many cases, we can address these problems early, preventing tooth extractions and lengthy treatment in the future.
One of the most common early treatments is the phase one palatal expander. This interceptive treatment can guide the growth of the jaw, creating room for adult teeth to erupt. The outcome is straighter, better aligned permanent teeth without the need for extraction of healthy teeth.
Combined with orthodontics, phase one interceptive treatment can provide your child with a healthy, beautiful smile.
For complex treatment plans and for our younger patients, traditional orthodontics is still the best way to address misalignment issues. By using brackets attached to your teeth along with a wire, which is used to guide the movement of your teeth, we can gently move your teeth over time, giving you a healthy, aligned bite. Some of the conditions we can address with traditional orthodontics include:
- Cross bite
- Cosmetic issues
- Occlusal conditions (misaligned bite)
We offer orthodontic treatment for both adults and children in our Miami, FL dental office. As you progress through treatment, we will make adjustments to help you achieve the best possible outcome.
After we complete your treatment, we will recommend an orthodontic retainer to keep your teeth from drifting back to their original location. Failure to use your retainer could mean that the time and money you spent on treatment will go to waste. We strongly suggest you wear your retainer as recommended.
Invisalign Clear Braces
For adults and older teens wishing to make cosmetic changes to their smiles, Invisalign provides an alternative to traditional brackets and wires. By using a series of clear aligner trays, we can gently move your teeth to alignment.
Invisalign may be a great option for you if brackets and wires do not fit into your lifestyle. You can learn more about it on our Invisalign page.
Maintaining Your Health during Treatment
It is important to maintain regular dental visits and professional dental cleaning appointments throughout your treatment to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Regular dental visits, combined with brushing and flossing your teeth at home, can help prevent decay during orthodontics.
