Problems Fixed By Braces And Other Orthodontics

Under the skilled care provided by our dentists, you can restore your confidence in your smile while enjoying results that are effective and long-lasting. Please visit our before-and-after gallery to see the smiles our patients have achieved with orthodontia.

A consultation is necessary to determine if orthodontic treatment is the best option, but generally speaking, such treatments can fix the following issues:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Overbite
  • Under-bite
  • Cross-bite
  • Misaligned bite
  • Restricted breathing caused by a bad bite
  • Sleep apnea caused by a bad bite
  • TMJ pain caused by a bad bite
  • Recessed chin caused by bite and jaw problems

You may feel embarrassed when you smile if you are experiencing one or more of these issues. Not only are these issues aesthetically problematic, they can also affect your ability to chew and to speak. Misaligned bites may also lead to neck, shoulder, back and jaw pain.

Other issues, such as narrow teeth arches, may affect your breathing. When there is less room for the tongue and if tonsils and adenoids are larger than normal, the breathing airways can be compromised. The result may be lower oxygen intake that can result in poor growth and poor sleep, as well as teeth grinding and sleep apnea.

Orthodontics At The Smile Centre

Sarasota and Venice orthodontics The advanced technology used by our dentists allows us to assess your bite and plan your orthodontic treatment in a highly efficient, individualized manner. We also provide the benefit of multiple orthodontia options:

  • Conventional braces with state-of-the-art metal brackets and wires
  • Invisalign® clear aligners
  • Early childhood orthodontic treatment

Traditional metal braces remain the best option to treat many cases of bite misalignment and teeth crookedness. But today's metal braces are, fortunately, much less unsightly than braces of the past.

You may also be a good candidate for Invisalign®. These clear, plastic aligners are custom-fabricated to fit your teeth precisely. You will wear a series of aligners, which gradually straighten the teeth over time, just like braces. The benefits of straightening your teeth this discreetly go without saying. For adults especially, the knowledge that most people can't even tell they're straightening their teeth is important to their confidence in the social and professional realms.
