Types of Orthodontic Treatments

Invisalign

The Invisalign system is made of clear acrylic aligners that fit over your teeth and Dr. Ross uses them to straighten your smile. They’re removable, making it easier to eat, drink, brush and floss.

Dr. Ross and our team will take photos and X-rays to create a 3D image of your mouth. We make your first set of custom-fitted aligners from these images, and then you begin the process of straightening your teeth.

This nearly-invisible option to straighten your teeth is truly changing the way people see orthodontic treatment. Dr. Ross has a lot of experience treating patients with Invisalign, and we’re excited to offer this technology to our braces patients at Smiles of Palmetto Bay.

Early Intervention

While there is no exact age for children to begin orthodontic treatment, the American Association of Orthodontists recommends visiting the orthodontist around age 7.

By this age, most children have a mix of baby teeth and adult teeth, making it easier for the orthodontist to diagnose, correct, and prevent tooth and jaw problems sooner and without surgery.

Early treatment allows your orthodontist to:

  • Correct and guide the growth of your child’s jaw to help the permanent teeth come in straight
  • Create more space for crowded teeth
  • Prevent teeth from becoming extracted and needing surgical intervention
  • Correct thumb-sucking and help improve minor speech problems

Adult Ortho

Palmetto Bay Braces

Orthodontic treatment is no longer just for teens. More and more adults are choosing to receive treatment because they understand the importance of maintaining their health, and they want to feel better about their appearance. Today there are more esthetic options to achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of. Adults everywhere are taking advantage of the opportunity to receive orthodontic care, and now you can too!

Common Reasons Adults Consider Orthodontic Treatment:

  • A bad bite or malocclusion, causing teeth to fit together incorrectly
  • Teeth are crowded or spaced apart, possibly causing tooth decay or gum disease
  • Abnormal jaw pain, or pressure that is caused by crooked teeth
  • Desire for a healthier mouth and a more confident smile

Common Problems

Orthodontic problems can affect anyone – in fact, our teeth are almost never naturally perfect. Malocclusion, or a “bad bite” can cause problems with chewing, oral hygiene, speaking and aesthetics.
