Orthodontics in Orlando, FL

Orlando orthodontic care for better oral health and a more confident smile.

Crooked or unattractive teeth not only affect self-confidence. They can also impact good oral health. That’s why it’s so important to get the proper care from a Designer Smiles orthodontist. We can help you find the best solution to correct misaligned teeth, regardless of the patient’s age or the cause of the problem. Get the appropriate care necessary to chew, speak, and smile with confidence.

Finding the best orthodontic solution for the problem.

No matter what type of defect you hope to correct, there are a number of affordable and effective solutions. These range from traditional braces to invisible braces and retainers. Your Designer Smiles orthodontist will work with you to determine the orthodontic solution most appropriate for you or your child–whether the goal is to straighten misaligned teeth, correct a speech problem, or alleviate abnormal swallowing and difficult chewing. Orthodontics can also be effective in preventing problems such as TMJ, gum disease, and excessive wear on the misaligned teeth.

How young is too young for braces?

According to the American Association of Orthodontics, children should receive an evaluation by the age of seven. At this point, a child’s dentition and jaws will have developed well enough so that the orthodontist can pinpoint any current or potential problems. Ideally, early intervention ensures the proper growth of a child’s jaws and regulates the width of his or her dental arches. The goal is to encourage the appropriate positioning of permanent teeth.

How old is too old for braces?

It’s not just children who benefit from good orthodontic treatment. Even adults can be self-conscious about their smiles or desire braces for health reasons. We commonly treat all ages with all types of orthodontic problems. The process for adults is much the same as for children. For adults, however, the Designer Smiles dentist will check your gums for periodontal disease. Provided your gums are in good health, you’ll be fitted for the orthodontic solution that’s right for your needs.

Types of orthodontic solutions available.

There have never been more ways to correct misaligned teeth and achieve a more attractive smile. Your Orlando Designer Smiles orthodontist will perform an examination to determine which solution will be most effective in correcting your specific problem. The recommendation will depend on your goals, the severity of misalignment, and any specific defects that need to be addressed. Solutions may range from conventional or invisible braces to a variety of retainers. Let your orthodontist know if you have special concerns about comfort, or if you prefer a more discreet option.

Financing makes braces more affordable.

A million dollar smile doesn’t have to cost a fortune. While it’s tough to put a price on good oral health and greater self-confidence, it is possible to make the costs of orthodontics easier to bear. Designer Smiles offers a number of financing options to bring straighter teeth and a more confident smile easily within reach. Ask our staff about special discounts, payment plans, and other affordable alternatives to make the appropriate orthodontic care a reality for you or your child.
