Orthodontist in Sarasota, FL
A straighter smile without the hassles of traditional braces
Orthodontic treatment is a serious investment. It takes time, money, and patience. But the results speak for themselves. Patients who undergo orthodontic treatment overwhelmingly report an improved quality of life. And you can see it. There’s a look patients get the moment they see what orthodontic treatment can do to transform their smiles. We used to have take impressions and then wait for weeks for simulations to come back, but now, thanks to iTero, we can show you what kind of results you can expect in minutes. Best of all, getting an iTero scan at Simply Smiles in Sarasota, FL is absolutely free!
Types of Orthodontia we Offer
Maybe the thought of traditional braces doesn't send shudders down your spine, but the thought of spending years and years straightening your teeth does. Fast Braces bring together the best of modern orthodontic developments and traditional braces. Like traditional braces, Fast Braces involve attaching brackets to your teeth and threading them with a wire. The wire is used to adjust the position of your teeth. Here's the big difference: traditional braces actually move your teeth in two steps. First, they move the parts of your teeth that you can see (the crowns), and then they move the roots (the part of your teeth that reaches down into your bone). Fast Braces use special brackets that move the crowns and the roots at the same time. This drastically reduces how long it takes to get a straighter smile.
Fast Braces are one of Dr. Gekht's many specialties. If you're interested in seeing what they can do for you, schedule a consult with her today!
Invisalign is a more modern approach to orthodontic treatment. Rather than having unsightly brackets, wires, or bands, you simply wear clear aligners. Now you actually have to wear them to get results (we're talking 22/24 hours a day here), but that doesn't mean that anybody will notice that you're wearing them! Much like fast braces, these aligners move both the roots and crown at the same time, so comprehensive orthodontic treatment with Invisalign can take as little as 6 months.
We can tell you what to expect when you go through treatment with Invisalign. With iTero we can show you what kind of results you can expect in a matter of minutes. Best of all, two members of the Simply Smiles team have gone through treatment with Invisalign, and both are more than happy to tell you exactly what kind of hills you'll have to climb and how to best get over them.
iTero is the bleeding edge of dental tech. Gone are the days of waiting for weeks for a simulation from Invisalign, or just imagining what your smile could look like after orthodontic treatment. With iTero, we can make a 3D model of your teeth in real-time in minutes. Using that model we can show you how orthodontic treatment could change your smile in seconds. We think that this is so incredibly awesome, impressive, and satisfying that we offer iTero scans to our patients at absolutely no cost and with no obligation. Just get ready! Between watching your teeth slide into their ideal positions right before your eyes and the convenience of Invisalign, you might get way more interested in orthodontic treatment than you ever imagined you would!
