What Are Customized Braces and Do You Need Them

A mother in Weston is looking into making an orthodontic consultation for her son. She had needed braces as a kid, and could see that her son would need them too. As she looked up information about getting braces online, she could see that there are many more options for getting straight teeth than there were in her day. She remembers the large brackets and ‘metal-mouth’ look of her braces. She remembers many visits to the orthodontist for adjustments, and she recalls how uncomfortable her old braces could be. But orthodontic treatment has come a long way, and she sees that there are some new options for getting her son a straight smile.


Insignia Advanced Smile Design from Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics is one of those options. These braces use the most advanced dental technology to create customized braces. What are customized braces? Customized braces are 100% fit to each patient. Since each patient has a unique bite structure, unique facial features, and individualized orthodontic needs, custom-fit braces make perfect sense.


How are customized braces created? At the offices of Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, Dr. Yazji will use Insignia software to take a virtual 3D image of your mouth. An orthodontic treatment plan will then be developed for you using this highly accurate model of your mouth. Your braces will be custom manufactured to fit your teeth and mouth. Since each bracket will be customized and placed precisely, and wires will be custom-made, you can expect:

  • Faster treatment times than traditional braces
  • Fewer office visits to adjust your braces
  • A gentle approach to straightening your teeth
  • The perfect smile and bite for you


Do you need customized braces? Your orthodontist will be able to discuss this with you. At your first appointment, Dr. Yazji will assess your orthodontic needs and determine which service is best for you. Customized Insignia Advanced Smile Design braces may be the right fit for you, or you may do better with another one of the services offered to South Florida patients of Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics. At your first appointment at the Miami, Brickell or Weston office of Dr. Yazji, your orthodontist will talk to you about your treatment options and answer any questions you have about getting straight teeth.


Straightening your teeth and correcting bite issues can contribute to the overall health of your teeth and mouth in Miami. At the offices of Dr. Maria Yazji, your dental health and hygiene is important to us. Your orthodontist will be able to provide you with tips to care for your teeth while wearing braces, such as how to floss with braces, and can recommend ADA-approved dental care products to keep your teeth healthy during and after your orthodontic treatment.
