Dental Braces

Dental Braces - PHC Dental Care of Miami Florida

Orthodontic braces are devices to correct misaligned teeth to improve a person’s bite and overall oral health. Premium Healthcare Dental Center in Miami offers dental braces under the care of a professional team who will evaluate the condition of your teeth and jaw for corrections such as:

  • Underbite
  • Malocclusions
  • Overbites
  • Open bites
  • Gaps
  • Deep bites
  • Cross bites
  • Crooked teeth

Braces can properly align teeth to help prevent tooth decay and gum disease, and improve bite, speech, and appearance.


Dental braces, also known as orthodontic braces, are devices used to correct misaligned teeth and jaws. They consist of brackets, wires, and other components that work together to apply gentle pressure, gradually moving the teeth into their desired positions.

Dental braces can be used at any age, but they are commonly recommended during adolescence when the permanent teeth have fully erupted. However, adults can also benefit from braces to improve their dental alignment.

The duration of braces treatment varies depending on the individual’s specific orthodontic needs. On average, treatment can last anywhere from 1 to 3 years. Regular adjustments and proper oral hygiene play a crucial role in achieving desired results within the estimated timeframe.

Initially, some discomfort or soreness may be experienced after braces are first applied or adjusted. However, this discomfort is temporary and can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers. Most people adapt to the feeling of braces within a few days.

Yes, you can still participate in sports and play musical instruments with braces. It is advisable to wear a mouthguard during sports activities to protect both your teeth and braces. Musical instruments may require some adjustment, but most people adapt quickly.

Oral hygiene is crucial during braces treatment. Brushing after every meal and flossing daily are essential to remove food particles and plaque. Your orthodontist will provide guidance on proper brushing techniques and recommend special tools like interdental brushes or floss threaders.

It is normal to experience a temporary adjustment period when it comes to speech with braces. You may notice some changes in the way you speak or pronounce certain sounds. With time, your tongue and mouth muscles will adapt, and your speech will return to normal.

While some dietary adjustments are necessary during braces treatment, you can still enjoy most of your favorite foods. Hard, sticky, or chewy foods should be avoided as they can damage the braces. Your orthodontist will provide a list of foods to avoid and offer guidance on maintaining a braces-friendly diet.

Remember, these answers provide general information, and it’s important to consult with an orthodontist for personalized advice and treatment options specific to your dental needs.
