The highly trained dental do-gooders at Taylor Orthodontics investigate inconsistencies in oral architecture and meticulously fashion mouths with a variety of state-of-the-art orthodontic technologies. An initial exam, including panoramic and cephalometric x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The Invisalign process ($2,000–$8,000) eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. Incognito braces implement computer-aided design technology and robotic wire bending to shape 100% customizable brackets, form-fitted and placed behind the teeth, and traditional metal, colored, and clear-ceramic braces strive to straighten out teeth with their traditional tough love.
For more than two decades, Dr. Lilian Gonzalez and her team of specialists at Dental American Group have cared for teeth using the latest equipment and techniques. The crew—which includes an orthodontist, a periodontist, an endodontist, and oral surgeons—performs services ranging from practical to cosmetic. Doctors may straighten smiles with braces, or replace missing teeth with dental implants. Wrinkle-relaxing Botox injections are also available, leaving faces youthful enough to re-grow their baby teeth.
With more than 30 years of experience, orthodontist Juan de Dios Garcia, D.M.D., P.A. knows that teeth aren't just for eating. They're support structures for the middle and lower part of the face, which influence facial appearance, speech, and self esteem. Specializing in dento-facial orthopedics, Dr. Garcia keeps this fact in mind when guiding patients' teeth toward healthier, more aesthetic and functional positions.
When they're examining teeth, the trio of dentists at Premiere Dental Care Center aren't just thinking about the mouth—they're thinking about the rest of the patient, too. That's because they recognize the relationship between oral health and the body. During consultations, they explain how stress can cause cavities, plaque can lead to heart problems, and loose lips can sink ships. Then they meticulously examine teeth in search of decay and other ailments, taking into account activities that can impede oral health, such as smoking.
Armed with a degree in microbiology from the University of Florida, Dr. Pablo J Fonseca combines his fascination with small worlds with a passion for big smiles. The 25-year veteran works closely with his team members, many of whom dedicate thousands of hours to continuing education classes. Together, the group performs both general and cosmetic services as well as emergency dentistry for those with chipped teeth or a feeling that the tooth fairy is overstaying her welcome.
Dr. Herrmann, founder and dentist of Assure a Smile, has been polishing and maintaining the toothy smiles of his patients for more than 20 years. Misaligned teeth can see the error of their crooked ways with an Invisalign exam, a comprehensive assessment that scrutinizes teeth from every angle with a tell-all x-ray. After the exam, patients are given full information on the Invisalign system specific to their dental health, and are invited to sport the no metal, no wire braces with a $1,000 discount, keeping wallets heavy and incisors free from high-interest bicuspid bank loans.
