Traditional Braces in Miami, FL
Dr. Renier Suarez and Dr. Teresa Suarez are happy to provide orthodontic consultations to patients who want to learn more about straightening their smiles. Often, they will recommend traditional braces to treat moderate to severe orthodontic concerns. Orthodontic treatment can span several months or even years depending on the starting point of your dental alignment. It’s important for patients to have patience while undergoing treatment and look forward to the beautiful end result of a straightened and healthier smile.
Traditional braces utilize a system of brackets and wires which are securely attached to your teeth the entire time while you undergo treatment. Every few weeks, you will need to visit your dentist’s office and have the wires tightened. By tightening the wires periodically, over time this will create small amounts of pressure and encourage your teeth to shift into a straighter position. When your treatment is complete, we will recommend the use of a retainer to help maintain your straightened smile for many years to come.
A Discreet Alternative To Traditional Braces
Our office is excited to offer patients the option to treat their orthodontic concerns with Invisalign clear aligners. A discreet alternative to traditional braces, Invisalign utilizes retainer-like aligners that slowly apply pressure to your dental structures and encourage them to shift into a straighter position. While traditional braces are used to treat patients with moderate to severe orthodontic concerns, Invisalign can help patients who have mild to moderate orthodontic concerns. Our doctors will evaluate the current condition of your smile and offer you the orthodontic treatment plan that best meets your needs. Ask about Invisalign during your next appointment.
