Many of these, such as clear braces, colorful braces as well as Invisalign are offered by Dr. Carmen Briceño Crespi at her Lakes Orthodontics Office in Miami . There are studies that show how these more appealing options, have caused an increase in adults who are willing to get braces.

Braces are a commitment. Braces can help your oral health if your teeth are crooked or protrude to the degree that it interrupts the way you eat, breathe or even hold your mouth. Misaligned teeth can put strain on the jaw muscles and increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. In addition to the health benefits of having braces, your confidence is boosted with a more beautiful smile. It’s unfortunate that some people are born with traits that cause their bite to be misaligned; others end up with crooked teeth because of thumb-sucking or from extensive use of a pacifier. Remember a basic visit to your family dentist will not fix crooked teeth. This is a case that must be referred to an orthodontist. Visit us at Lakes Orthodontics for free no obligation consultation!

For most people, going to the orthodontist is not considered as dreadful as going to the dentist.  However, if you ask kids, teens, and adults what is one thing you hate about going to the orthodontist and they will almost unanimously say “dental impressions!”

For most people, going to the orthodontist is not considered as dreadful as going to the dentist.  However, if you ask kids, teens, and adults what is one thing you hate about going to the orthodontist and they will almost unanimously say “dental impressions!”

Dental Impression – is the procedure by which a putty-like clay compound is deposited in a device called a tray. The tray is then placed in your mouth, and once you bite down on it, a negative imprint of your dental arch is created. From this imprint, a positive reproduction can be cast. Dental impressions are used throughout the dental industry quite frequently. Their most common application include the creation of mouth guards, whitening trays, retainers, crowns, bridges, veneers, dentures, and dental models, among other things. Although better technology now exists, many dentists insist on using them because they are cheap and easy to use even if they don’t provide the best patient experience.

At Lakes Orthodontics, we opt not to use “old school” dental impressions. We find them to be an antiquated technology dating back the 1800’s, they are not as accurate as digital impressions, and for sure not a favorite with patients. Because of this, we have invested in an iTero, Intraoral Scanner by Align Technology, Inc.

The iTero, Intraoral Scanner is a revolutionary high precision, digital, dental scanning device developed to improve not only the time it takes to fit braces and Invisalign but also its accuracy. With the iTero, Intraoral Scanner Invisalign ClinCheck (modeling procedure) setups are 50% faster, there are 10X fewer rejections, 7X fewer fit issues and more important to us a better patient experience. Not only that but at Lakes Orthodontics we can actually show you an image of how their teeth may look after Invisalign treatment!

There are many reasons why families and individuals from Aventura to Doral, from Pembroke Pines to Miami Gardens and Hialeah chose Lakes Orthodontics for their braces and Invisalign! Our iTero digital dental scanning technology is just one of them!
