Our dentist in Ocoee, FL, Dr. Freddy Mezquia, encounters several patients daily who pursue healthier, beautiful smiles. You should know that you are not alone. There are probably several other people you know who want to transform their smiles into a thing of beauty.

If you desire to redesign your smile, you need to sign up for our cosmetic dentistry program. At Smiles of Ocoee, we offer all our clients access to outstanding cosmetic dentistry services, which are guaranteed to transform not only their smiles but their overall oral health and well-being.

Cosmetic dentistry does more than just giving you a brand new smile; it rectifies orthodontic issues that compromise your oral health. To redesign your smile, we will need to deal with orthodontic problems such as teeth alignment and arrangement before getting to other cosmetic issues such as your tooth color or stains.

One of the most effective orthodontic treatments involves the use of braces. Braces have been greatly revolutionized from the traditional braces to a variety of braces to suit anyone’s needs.

Which Orthodontic Issues Can Braces Resolve?

Orthodontic problems can negatively impact your smile and dental health. It’s no secret that most people hold off dealing with these issues because they are not willing to wear braces.

This is because the perspective they have of braces is that they are bulky and aesthetically unappealing. However, this is not the case anymore; braces have come a long way.

They are now lighter, trendier, and even in some cases, inconspicuous. Our dentist prescribes braces for patients who need to deal with major orthodontic issues. Whether you are a teenager or an adult, have no worries, we have you covered.

There is a vast array of braces, all designed to meet our client’s specific needs. Braces can be prescribed to rectify the following orthodontic issues:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Improper spacing between teeth
  • Openbite
  • Crossbite
  • Temporomandibular disorder (TMD)
  • Excess overjet
  • Misaligned jaw

If you are wondering which orthodontic treatment you should opt for? Have no worries. Our dentist will help you single out a treatment plan that will be ideal for you based on your orthodontic issue.

Types of Braces Available

There are different types of braces available, and you can work with our dentist to select a variety that will work best for you. However, it would help if you understood that the design prescribed is what will work to resolve your issue.

Ideally, braces will consist of wires, fixed or removable corrective devices, and bands. They may include:

  • Metal Braces

These are the traditional type of braces. They typically are made of brackets held together along the teeth using flexible wires. The brackets adhere to the front of your teeth, the wire is readjusted to create a form of pressure which gradually helps move your teeth into their desired position.

The wire is connected to the brackets by tiny elastic rings, which are changed during every readjustment session. Metal braces have revolutionized over time; they are no longer bulky and uncomfortable like they were before. They are lighter and even come in an array of colors.

  • Clear/ Invisible Braces or Aligners

These braces are made of clear plastic aligners customized in a series to realign your teeth gradually. They are removable and can be taken off during meals or dental hygiene practices such as brushing and flossing.

Every two weeks, you wear a new set of aligners to move your teeth closer to their desired position. These aligners are popular among adults and teenagers who are particularly conscious about their looks.

  • Lingual Braces

These braces are designed to have the brackets facing inward towards your tongue. They are attached to the back part of the teeth, unlike metal braces, which are fixed at the front of the teeth. The advantage of these braces is that they cannot be seen from the outside, but they still operate and function as the traditional metal braces.

  • Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are designed to be the same shape and size as the metal braces. However, in this case, the brackets are transparent or, in other instances, tooth-colored, making them inconspicuous. These braces realign teeth faster than the invisible aligners and can be used to rectify complex alignment issues.
