Correct Crooked Teeth With Braces, Invisalign
Our Miami dental office’s orthodontic treatment can align your teeth, improve your bite, and enhance the look and function of your mouth. Crooked teeth can make patients self-conscious to the point that they try to hide their smile. Our office can give you a beautiful smile that you’ll be eager to show off.
Dr. Greenstein is not just interested in fixing your bite issues and correcting crooked teeth. Using gneuromuscular dentistry, he assesses your entire mouth and oral cavity to find the most appropriate bite that synchronizes your jaw joint, nerves, and muscles. When the muscles, nerves, and joints are not in sync, patients often have signs of TMD (temporomandibular disorder). TMD can give patients constant headaches, neck pain, and jaw pains.
Dr. Greenstein uses orthodontics as a solution to TMD. Orthodontics can also help patients with sleep apnea, gum disease, muscle tension, migraines or tension headaches, and jaw pain, as well as fix underbites, overbites, crossbites, gaps in teeth, crowded teeth, and impacted teeth.
Align Your Smile With Braces
Braces are the most accurate and reliable way to fix bite issues and crooked teeth. We treat orthodontic issues with braces for both children and adults. Don’t think that braces are simply for kids – about half of our patients in braces are adults and much of our staff has undergone Dr. Greenstein’s orthodontic treatment.
We offer several different types of orthodontics, including traditional orthodontics, dentofacial orthopedics, self-ligating brackets, and tooth-colored braces. Traditional braces use metal brackets and wires to realign your teeth. Traditional braces are often used for children – we even have colorful rubber bands. For his younger patients, Dr. Greenstein uses his training in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics to fix the teeth while also studying the growth of the facial structure.
Many of our adult patients choose our self-ligating brackets (Innovation-C or Innovation-R). This technology gives you a shorter treatment time and eliminates the need for dental visits every four weeks.
Using gneuromuscular concepts to achieve a comfortable and predictable bite is part of how Greenstein Dental helps you achieve a healthy, long-lasting smile for years to come.
Straighten Teeth Without Metal Wires, Brackets
The cosmetic alternative to conventional braces, Invisalign is the clear choice to straighten teeth for adults and teens. Instead of showing brackets and wires when you smile, a series of clear, plastic aligners are worn over your upper and lower teeth. The beauty of this system lies in both comfort and looks – they feel smooth to your lips, are removable when eating or brushing, and appear as though you’re not wearing anything at all over your teeth!
Aligners are delivered in sequence and are worn for about two weeks each. You will receive three to four trays per visit, saving you time away from work or family.
Using 3D CAD/CAM technology, we will show you how your teeth predictably move into place, providing you the opportunity to see what you’ll look like when treatment is done. When therapy is completed, clear retainers are worn to secure the new tooth position and maintain a long-lasting, beautiful smile. Treatments are extremely predictable and more often take less time than conventional orthodontics.
