The Orthodontic Services We Offer
At our orthodontic practice, we offer a number of different solutions designed to suit the needs of your children and to correct issues with crooked teeth in the most effective way possible. Some of our most popular solutions include the following orthodontic treatments:
- Braces: Traditional braces are attached to the teeth on a temporary basis and consist of wires and brackets. These systems put pressure on teeth in a specific way, depending on the corrections needed, moving them gradually into the desired configuration. Braces are worn until the desired correction has been achieved.
- Retainers: Retainers are reserved for the final stages of braces. Ideally, a retainer is worn by your child at night to help maintain the corrections made during the braces process.
- Invisalign: These clear aligners are not usually recommended for younger children because of the possibility that their teeth are still growing during the orthodontic correction process. Because Invisalign is relatively expensive, it should be reserved until the teeth and jaw have grown to their full size. However, your orthodontist will be able to perform an inspection of your child’s teeth and recommend the appropriate action.
The Latest Technologies for Your Orthodontic Needs
Main Street Orthodontics can provide the latest treatments for crooked or misaligned teeth. Some of the tools we have at our disposal in our Palmetto Bay orthodontics office include the following:
- The iTero digital scanner is designed to make the X-ray process easier and faster. This digital radiography tool allows our team to take X-rays that can be immediately transferred to the computer. This tool speeds up the diagnostic process and can help you begin your orthodontic treatment more quickly.
- We also use intraoral dental scanners that can create an image of your teeth that can be analyzed and stored on our computer systems. These advanced tools are designed to provide the most accurate look at your teeth before orthodontic procedures can begin.
- Invisalign is one of the most innovative orthodontic systems available today. This system provides near-invisible correction for teeth that are mildly to moderately out of alignment. We use the iTero Invisalign Simulator to demonstrate the changes that this orthodontic solution can achieve on behalf of our patients.
The entire team at Main Street Orthodontics can provide you with the most advanced and appropriate orthodontic solutions. We work with you to determine the ideal course of treatment for your child.
