The field of orthodontics is concentrated on the proper positioning of teeth and jaws in the mouth. At Fioritto Family Dental, we know that no two patients are alike, which is why we’re pleased to offer personalized orthodontic treatment to both children and adults. Our goal is to help our patients achieve a healthy, perfect smile.
Our training and experience have earned us a reputation as one of the finest dental and orthodontic practices in the Mentor and Concord, Ohio area. Fioritto Family Dental offers the expertise, cutting-edge technologies, and comfortable atmosphere our patients require. What can you expect when you partner with us to find your best smile?
The initial orthodontic exam involves a careful and thorough evaluation to identify the specific problem areas. Patients may have misalignment issues such as crowding or gaps, or malocclusions such as an overbite, underbite, crossbite, and so on. Patients may also have multiple issues that need correction.
Following the examination and diagnosis, we’ll discuss the treatment options with our patients so they can make an informed decision about their orthodontic care or the care for their children. Every treatment plan is specific to each and every patient.
Traditional orthodontic braces remain as the standard treatment option for straightening both teen and adult misalignments, largely because they are so effective. Depending on the corrective plan, we may be able to offer the option of transparent/clear braces for a more discreet appearance, or alternately, lingual braces mounted on the inside of teeth to conceal the braces.
Invisalign is another option for teens and adults. These clear, removable aligner trays are practically invisible during wear and are custom fitted to every patient. New trays are placed on the teeth every few weeks to ensure rapid progress. Invisalign offers added convenience because they can be removed while eating and cleaning teeth. Invisible aligners aren’t right for every patient, which is why an initial examination at Fioritto Family Dental is suggested.
Our doctors will partner with you to reach your smile goals, but you have to do your part. This means avoiding hard or sticky foods, and performing regular brushing and flossing of your teeth. Regular visits for cleaning and examination will safeguard your smile!
Some patients may be required to wear retainers or other dental appliances after their braces are removed. Retainers and dental appliances help to stop teeth from shifting back to their prior poor position. Orthodontic treatment at Fioritto Family Dental is provided by highly experienced doctors and dental staff. Your beautiful, healthy smile is in caring hands!
