Treatment & Orthodontic
Dr. Bernardo Rodriguez provides orthodontic treatment for adults, adolescents and children. Over 20% of our patients are now adults undergoing orthodontic treatment. Many advances in technology have reduced treatment times and improved patient comfort. Invisalign is also an option for many adult patients. Treatment times vary depending on the severity of the orthodontic problem, though Sure Smile technology, self-ligating brackets and heat sensitive memory wires has dramatically changed our practice of orthodontics and substantially reduced treatment times. This is really a new age in orthodontics.
Orthodontics is the specialty of dentistry focused on the diagnosis and treatment of dental and associated facial irregularities. The results of orthodontic treatment can be dramatic — beautiful smiles, improved dental health and an enhanced quality of life for many people of all ages. Orthodontic problems result from the combination of genetic and environmental factors, which must be properly diagnosed before treatment begins. Diagnosis involves the detailed study and analysis of clinical examination, intra and extra oral photographs, orthodontic x-rays, and articulated dental models, which enable Dr. Bernardo Rodriguez to make informative decisions about the forms of treatment possible.
Outstanding results are also dependent on patient compliances with treatment and maximizing the coordination of care between you and our practice.
