Dr. Soto has advanced training in traditional orthodontics as well as the latest methods, such as removable invisible braces from Invisalign®.
Orthodontic Services at The Dental Office of Dr. Ernie Soto in Plantation, Florida Include:
Orthodontic planning can begin as soon as your child loses his or her baby teeth. Dr. Soto will examine your child’s mouth and take X-rays to see if permanent teeth are growing in at the right position. If not, space maintainers are used to regulate the space between teeth and help them grow into position accurately, which can help avoid extensive orthodontic work later on. Regular dental check-ups and non-metal fillings can help keep teeth strong and prepared for braces in the future.
