Each smile is unique. Whether we are born with certain oral features that create a crooked smile, or we develop bite alignment issues over time, a perfect and straight smile is seldom a natural trait. That’s where orthodontics from Lake City Dental can help! With orthodontics from our Florida DMD, you can achieve the gleaming smile of your dreams with discreet, comfortable, and flexible treatment options that fit your lifestyle.

Each dentist in Lake City with our practice is committed to providing our patients with the most effective orthodontics for their unique needs. Prior to your dental treatment with orthodontics, our Florida DMD will examine your bite and jaw alignment and take various scans and molds to determine the best course of treatment for your needs.

What Is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a specialty within the field of dentistry focused on diagnosing, preventing, managing, and correcting poorly or mal-positioned teeth and jaws, as well as misaligned bite patterns. Orthodontic corrections are made through the application and adjustment of orthodontic appliances, such as metal braces, ceramic braces, and clear or invisible aligner trays. Modern orthodontics offers several options for appliance types as well as greater flexibility than that of years past for greater comfort, less noticeability, and an improved patient experience throughout each stage of the treatment process.

Types Of Orthodontics

Our Lake City dental practice orthodontic treatment options help our patients achieve their healthiest, happiest smiles. Our dental team specialized in orthodontic treatment with clear orthodontic aligners. While clear aligners are an excellent treatment option for most patients, some patients may require traditional orthodontic services to best achieve their desired result.

Invisible Aligners

Lake City Dental offers virtually undetectable orthodontic treatment with SureSmile®. SureSmile® aligners straighten your teeth without preventing you from living the lifestyle you love. With invisible aligner trays, patients receive a treatment plan customized to them, developed by dental experts and premium lab technicians. SureSmile® provides you with a healthy, beautiful smile that fits comfortably and is convenient to integrate into your daily routine. With a series of clear, removable trays that fit over the teeth, SureSmile® aligners offer noticeable, predictable results with little-to-no discomfort or limitations on lifestyle and food choices.

The process begins with an assessment in our Lake City dentistry office, during which your dentist will assess whether or not clear aligners are a good fit for your orthodontic needs. When confirmed as the ideal treatment plan, our team will then take detailed digital impressions, photos, and dental X-rays of your mouth. The overall duration of your treatment plan with SureSmile® invisible aligners varies from patient to patient and can vary depending on the degree to which correction is required for proper smile alignment. Typically, however, treatment duration with clear aligners takes 6–18 months to complete.
