Who Are Orthodontists?
Orthodontists are a special type of dentist that focuses on treating irregularities in teeth. These irregularities may include misalignment of teeth, occlusion, misalignment of the jaw, and more. Generally, orthodontists complete an extra two years of dental school to become specialized in providing orthodontic consultation and treatment.

The Nature of Orthodontics
Dentists in Miami refer patients to orthodontists for a variety of reasons. Orthodontists deal with the shape of the mouth for eating and speaking purposes, and their work is therefore considered a restorative procedure. However, this same misalignment of the teeth can also be considered an aesthetic issue. In that case, the work is considered cosmetic in nature as it deals with beautifully reshaping the overall appearance of the teeth.
Examples of Orthodontic Treatments
Miami orthodontists can help improve your bite regardless of your age. This will help to ensure that your teeth work to their maximum potential, as well as provide you with the perfect smile. Examples of how orthodontic procedures can improve the form and function of your smile include:
- Improve oral function (speaking, eating, etc.)
- Using braces to straighten teeth into beautiful alignment.
- Reduce long-term wear and tear by improving alignment of the teeth.
- Using crowns and other restorations to improve bite alignment and function.
- Adjusting the overall alignment and shape of the teeth to make them easier to care for.
- Reduce risk of gum disease by making it easier to clean between and around the teeth.
Orthodontic Exam and Care
At Assure A Smile, orthodontic exams begin with a comprehensive evaluation of jaw and bite alignment. Following evaluation, an orthodontist at Assure A Smile will provide ongoing care that creates a brilliant new smile that exceeds expectations.
Identifying the issue(s). Using advanced 3D imaging technologies, our talented team of orthodontic professionals develops a digital map of the entire oral anatomy.
Selecting a treatment method. Next, patients are advised on how orthodontics like metal braces, Invisalign, and the DNA Appliance® can be used to correct alignment issues and improve general smile aesthetics.
Treatment and care. Throughout the duration of your orthodontic treatment, our team will schedule ongoing check-ups to ensure the teeth and gums are responding and shifting into alignment as planned. The length of treatment varies from patient to patient, with an average of 18 to 24 months needed to complete most cases.
Follow-up Care. Once complete, you are ready to enjoy and care for your brand new beautiful smile! We are pleased to provide ongoing check-ups, cleanings, and care following orthodontic treatment, as well as retainers that can be worn to prevent teeth from shifting out of alignment over time.
