We provide dental alignment options for children, teens and adults. Not only will straightening your teeth improve the look of your smile, but will also help keep your teeth healthy.
Why Should You Get Orthodontics?
The truth is, you would likely get braces so your smile can look and feel great. But that is not all orthodontics can do. By using an orthodontic expert to straighten your teeth the results will benefit your oral health, overall health and get you the best results possible. The alignment of your bite is a complex system. It not only involves the surfaces of your teeth, but the underlying structures of the gums, muscles, jaw and bone. Our main aim at Smile Design Studio is to give you a healthy bite and position your teeth for optimal performance. This will get rid of unnecessary wear to your teeth, make teeth easier to clean and improve the appearance of your smile.

The Right Orthodontics for You
When you think of braces you might picture a metal mouthed teen with head gear. This image would have anyone shying away from the idea of orthodontics. Fortunately, if you want a beautiful smile, you can have one without the social trauma. These days there are many options to choose from when it comes to straightening teeth. When you come in for an orthodontic evaluation our dentist in Lake Mary will evaluate the whole picture and find the right treatment for your needs. The type of dental appliances you receive and the duration of treatment will all hinge on what will work best for you and your smile.
Different Orthodontic Treatments
Traditional Metal Braces
These are the most common form of orthodontics and are what you picture when you think of braces. Today these fixed appliances are far more comfortable and effective at straightening teeth. This type of treatment includes brackets, archwires, and elastics to straighten teeth.
These appliances look like traditional braces and are even made from the same materials. The difference is that these braces do not need elastics. You will have fewer appointments and less friction on your teeth if you choose self-ligating braces.
These are especially designed for the brace-conscious patients. The ceramic braces are made of clear materials that are less visible. However, these materials are not as resilient as the metal braces. If you choose ceramics they will need a little more attention as far as hygiene goes and more consideration of the things you eat.
This type of treatment involves a series of clear, removable acrylic trays. Over the weeks these appliances will progressively straighten teeth. They are comfortable to wear, make brushing and flossing easy, and are a great cosmetic option for those who want versatility.
These braces are bracketed behind the teeth and are completely customized to match the shape of your teeth. This type of orthodontic treatment is ideal for athletes, models, musicians who play wind instruments, and adult professionals.
