Orthodontics

Dr. Goldenberg is a skilled Boca Raton Orthodontist who is available to meet you, or your loved one, discuss Invisalign or Braces options, and help you make proper decisions.  A great-looking smile can boost self-confidence and have a positive impact on social and professional opportunities.  Orthodontic treatment is the original smile makeover tool — and you will be happy to know that you're never too old to take advantage of it.  But it isn't all about looks: Properly aligned teeth help you to bite, chew and even speak more effectively.  They are also easier to clean, which can help keep your mouth free of decay and gum disease.

Our East Boca Implant & Orthodontic Specialty Dental Office is equipped with the latest technology, including CT-Scan, and can handle routine Braces, Invisalign, Incognito, retainers and appliances.  We can also comfortably handle complex care involving multiple Dental Specialists including Dental Surgeons and Cosmetic Dentists in a clean, modern setting.

Bite Problems and How Orthodontics can Help

Orthodontics in Boca Ratone, FL

Our approach to Orthodontic treatment can resolve a number of bite problems, which often become evident by around age 7.  These include underbite, crossbite or excessive overbite, where upper and lower teeth don't close in the proper position; open bite, where a space remains between top and bottom teeth when the jaws are closed; and crowding or excessive spacing, where teeth are spaced too close together or too far apart.

To correct bite problems, teeth need to be moved — but doing that isn't as hard as you might think!  Teeth aren't fixed rigidly in their supporting bone; instead, they're held in place by a hammock-like structure called the periodontal ligament, which is very responsive to forces placed on the teeth.  Braces and Invisaligns move teeth by careful application of light, constant pressure.

Orthodontics is for Children - and Adults

We welcome Adult Patients as well as children to our Boca Raton Invisalign and Orthodontic Office. Ideally, having orthodontic treatment in childhood is ideal in order to take advantage of a youngster's natural growth processes to help move the teeth into proper alignment.  Like the rest of the body, the teeth and jaws are now changing rapidly.  So at this time it's possible (for example) to create more room for teeth in a crowded mouth by using a “palatal expander” to rapidly widen the upper jaw.  This  can shorten overall treatment time and ensure the best result if additional orthodontic appliances are needed.

Adult Orthodontics

But remember, teeth can be moved at any age, so you've never “missed the boat” for Invisalign or orthodontic treatment.  In fact, many of our Boca Raton orthodontic patients are adults.  Several new technological developments — including tooth-colored ceramic braces, clear aligners, invisalign, and invisible lingual braces — have made orthodontic appliances less evident, and enhanced the treatment experience for grown-ups.  Before treatment, patients are carefully examined, an advanced CT-Scan can be taken if needed, options are discussed by our experienced Boca Raton Orthodontist, and everything is explained in detail to help patients make the right decision.

 

Types of Orthodontic Appliances

Boca Raton, FL orthodontics

When you imagine someone wearing braces, you probably picture small metal brackets bonded to the front of the teeth, with a thin wire running through them.  This time-tested style remains very popular — but it's no longer the only option.  Clear braces use brackets made of ceramic or plastic which, except for the slim archwire, are hardly visible.  Lingual braces are just like traditional metal braces — except they're bonded to the back of your teeth (the tongue side) so that no one can see them.

Invisalign is also an alternative to fixed orthodontic appliances.  They consist of a series of clear plastic “trays” that fit over your teeth exactly; each one moves your teeth a little bit, until they are in the proper position.  Whether fixed or removable, each type of appliance may have advantages or disadvantages in particular situations. After a complete examination, the best treatment options for you will be discussed.

Retention & Post Orthodontic Care

Once your orthodontic treatment is completed, it's extremely important to wear a retainer as directed.  That's because teeth naturally tend to drift back to their original locations — which is the last thing you want after you've gone to the trouble of straightening them! Wearing a retainer holds your teeth in their new position long enough for new bone and ligament to re-form around them, and helps keep your gorgeous new smile looking good for a lifetime.
