Isaac Haber Orthodontics in Miami offers a wide range of orthodontic services, including comprehensive, early, interceptive, and adult orthodontic treatments. We also specialize in treatments using Invisalign aligner technology.
Comprehensive Orthodontic Treatment
Comprehensive Orthodontic Treatment corrects teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly. Crooked teeth and teeth that do not fit together correctly are harder to keep clean, are at risk of being lost early due to tooth decay and periodontal disease, and cause extra stress on the chewing muscles that can lead to headaches, TMJ syndrome, and neck, shoulder and back pain. Teeth that are crooked or not in the right place can also detract from one's appearance. In general, Comprehensive Orthodontic Treatment corrects overbites, underbites, crossbites, open bites, spacing, and crowding.
The benefits of comprehensive orthodontic treatment include a healthier mouth, a more pleasing appearance, and teeth that are more likely to last a lifetime. Comprehensive ortho treatment most often begins between the ages of 9 and 14.
Early Orthodontic Treatment
We also offer Early Ortho Treatment, another valuable service for children. Orthodontic Treatment in young children is known as Interceptive Orthodontics, or Early Orthodontic Treatment, and it can begin as early as age 6 or 7. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that every child has their first visit with an orthodontist by age 7─ or earlier if an orthodontic problem is detected by parents, the family dentist, or the child’s physician. This may surprise you because orthodontic treatment is usually associated with adolescence. An early examination, however, allows the orthodontic specialist to determine when a child’s particular problem should be treated for maximum improvement. In many patients, early treatment achieves results that are unattainable once the face and jaws have finished growing.
Some important conditions that require early intervention are crossbites and protruding front teeth. Crossbites can cause the jaws to grow unevenly, and front teeth that stick out may be easily fractured or injured.
Early Orthodontic Treatment is also beneficial in guiding jaw growth, correcting harmful oral habits, improving appearance, guiding permanent teeth into a more favorable position, and creating a more pleasing arrangement of teeth, lips, and face.
Adult Orthodontic Treatment
As part of our comprehensive services, we are also proud to offer Adult Ortho Treatment. Today, one orthodontic patient in five is an adult, and the good news is that it is never too late to move healthy teeth. You are never too old to benefit from orthodontic treatment. No matter what your age, proper alignment of teeth contributes to your good health and a beautiful smile. Leaving misaligned teeth untreated may lead to other dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease, as well as abnormal wearing of tooth enamel and difficulty in chewing.
Adult Orthodontic Treatment can contribute to good dental health. Advances in orthodontics have made treatment more comfortable and more successful than ever for people of all ages. Adult Orthodontic Treatment can correct crooked teeth or spaces that you have been self-conscious about for years. It can give you the confidence and pride that comes with straight teeth and a great smile.
We also provide comprehensive Invisalign orthodontic treatments. This technology takes an interesting approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements Dr. Haber plans out for you.There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You simply pop in a new set of aligners approximately every four weeks until your treatment is complete and you achieve the confident smile that you have always wanted. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you are straightening your teeth.
