If you are looking for comprehensive care from an orthodontic practice in Mandarin, Florida, welcome to Orthodontic Specialists of Florida. Located in the heart of Merchant’s Walk Shopping Center on San Jose Boulevard, our practice is led by Dr. Mitra Parsa, who has been practicing orthodontics since 2007. The orthodontic treatment that she provides will improve your appearance and help you enjoy better oral health, whether you are a child or an adult.
What Is Orthodontics?
As a special type of dental care, the focus of orthodontics is to straighten teeth to improve your bite and overall oral health. Our professionals also work with you to treat issues related to the structure of the jaw and face. Some of the conditions that might require orthodontic treatment are:
- Crooked and misaligned teeth
- Difficulty talking and eating because of your jaw, teeth or other structures of your face
- Excessive wear on your teeth
- Gaps and spaces between your teeth
Benefits of Orthodontics
The special care that orthodontics offers are most often related to having a beautiful smile. However, orthodontic treatment is ultimately provided to preserve the health of your teeth and gums. Crooked and misaligned teeth create areas where food particles and bacteria can hide. Gaps in your teeth also make your gums more vulnerable to plaque and bacteria. Furthermore, orthodontic care can improve your ability to speak clearly and chew food.
What Kinds of Braces Are Available?
Traditional metal braces are nearly always the best type of orthodontic appliance for children. They are also a key part of pediatric dental treatment. Metal braces are made of stainless steel and are attached to the front of the patient’s teeth. At Orthodontic Specialists of Florida, we also offer:
- Ceramic braces (clear braces)
- Gold braces
Who Can Benefit From Orthodontic Treatment?
You may be a good candidate for orthodontics if you have overcrowding, gaps in your teeth or similar issues. There are many reasons for both children and adults to seek orthodontic care from Orthodontic Specialists of Florida and Dr. Parsa, but here are a few:
- Orthodontic appliances can improve oral hygiene, which fights tooth decay.
- Patients with crooked or misaligned teeth can remedy their difficulties with chewing and eating.
- Patients can obtain more self-confidence and a better, long-term smile when they straighten their teeth with braces.
