SOMI DENTAL GROUP
SOUTH MIAMI ORTHODONTIST
Genetics, illness, accidents, and poor teeth care practices can misalign teeth. Crooked and damaged teeth can ruin your appearance, as well as negatively impact your dental health. Timely orthodontic treatment can preserve your teeth and restore them to their correct alignment and health.
In orthodontics, your misshapen and misaligned teeth are pushed into their right place using a series of dental tools. When your teeth are back where they belong, they add lesser strain on your gums and jaw, reducing your vulnerability to serious dental conditions like periodontal disease and tooth decay.
We offer treatment for the whole family. Feel free to book a consultation with a South Miami Orthodontist at Somi Dental Group today.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ORTHODONTICS AND COSMETIC DENTISTRY
While cosmetic dentistry focuses on the aesthetic components of your teeth and gums and how they look, orthodontics focuses on how dental irregularities affect the structural alignment and health of your face and jaw.
Misaligned teeth pose a greater health risk than they do an aesthetic risk. Many times, orthodontic conditions like teeth crowding, overbite, and underbite cause severe breathing and swallowing problems. Orthodontics is concerned with treating these dental conditions and helping you experience physical relief.
ORTHODONTISTS VS. DENTISTS
All orthodontists are dentists, but not all dentists are orthodontists.
To become an orthodontist, a dentist has to undergo intensive study and training in the treatment of dental malocclusions and bad bites. The South Miami Orthodontists at Somi Dental Group are licensed and qualified in treating the following conditions:
- Misplaced Midline: The central teeth in the upper jaw do not line up correctly with the central teeth in the lower jaw.
- Underbite: The teeth on the lower jaw align beyond the upper jaw, causing your lower jaw to protrude unnaturally.
- Overbite: The teeth on the upper jaw align beyond the lower jaw, causing your upper jaw to protrude unnaturally.
- Crossbite: When the upper teeth fit behind the lower teeth when you bring your teeth together, crisscrossing both sets of teeth.
- Open Bite: Open bites occur when there is an open space between the teeth in the lower and upper jaw when you bring your back teeth together.
- Crowding: The presence of more teeth than the dental line can accommodate.
- Irregular Spacing: Unusual spacing between the teeth so that it looks as if you have missing teeth.
DENTAL PROCEDURES OUR ORTHODONTISTS OFFER
These conditions can be treated using the following treatments:
Invisalign: Don’t want to get braces? Many people hesitate when it comes to traditional braces because they are very visible.
Invisalign is a state-of-the-art dental alignment tool that can help align your teeth without using traditional braces. These transparent braces are practically invisible, helping you avoid any discomfort or embarrassment when out in public.
The soft aligners of Invisalign are comfortable on your teeth, making them perfect for longer treatments and minimizing discomfort.
Fastbraces: Typical bad bites require two different sets of braces to treat both the root and crown. This can be painful and uncomfortable for many people.
You can prevent the need for two sets of braces to treat bad bites by choosing Fastbraces. These cutting-edge braces are made using specialized triangular-shaped brackets and a highly elastic wire that adapts to the changing shape and alignment of your teeth.
With Fastbraces, you simultaneously push back the crown and root of the teeth in place. This allows you to get beautiful and well-formed teeth within a few weeks, instead of using braces for years.
Traditional & Ceramic Braces: Get the beautiful teeth you’ve always wanted with the help of conventional braces. Made from long-lasting and sturdy materials, these braces will gently ease your teeth back into place, restoring their natural alignment.
Traditional braces are highly affordable, perfect for patients on a budget. Additionally, they’re designed for very serious dental malocclusions that require higher pressure for long durations. At Somi Dental Group, we can fit customized and premium-quality braces to help reduce any bad bites you suffer from.
When you need a South Miami Orthodontist for straightening out a crooked smile, Somi Dental Group is the place to be.
