Modern orthodontics has really evolved in the past few years. Once thought of as just for kids, dental braces are now widely prescribed for adults, too. Our Miami orthodontist Vivianne De La Cámara D.M.D. offers a wide variety of affordable treatment options for patients in Doral FL & areas nearby. Apple Dental Group has years of experience with standard and more complex dental care for children, teens and adults. Our orthodontist in Doral FL provide customized solutions to problems affecting the teeth and bite.
When you have a malocclusion or “bad bite,” you have a dental or facial irregularity that causes your teeth to be improperly aligned. Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that focuses on the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of such irregularities.
Everyone is different, so there’s really no way to predict how long your orthodontic treatment will take. Depending on the severity of the problem, it may last from just a few months to a few years.
In addition, after the course of active orthodontic treatment, patients will usually wear retainers to maintain the position of the teeth while the bone reforms around them.
Evaluating you or your child’s mouth prior to orthodontic work is much like a regular dental exam, except that models are made from impressions of the teeth. The orthodontist in Miami will use that model in your plan of treatment, which is as individualized as you are. I also will utilize your teeth x-rays, medical and dental health histories, as well as photos of the teeth, face and smile to round out the preliminary work.
The first step is to schedule your consultation.
During your visit we will:
• Comprehensive oral exam
• Necessary X-rays.
• Discuss your treatment options.
• Get any questions answered
