Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that focuses on correcting teeth and jaw irregularities, particularly in your bite’s alignment. At Gulf Coast Smiles, we offer both traditional braces and Invisalign® to our patients to help straighten their teeth. Having a straighter smile allows teeth to be in their ideal position while improving the appearance of your smile and promoting proper tooth functionality. Dr. Mauricio Martinez offers both straightening treatments to provide you with the ability to choose a treatment that best fits your lifestyle.


Invisalign straightens teeth by using clear, plastic trays, much like a retainer. Our dentist will custom-fit these trays to fit your bite every few weeks and help you achieve your ideal smile. Because Invisalign aligners are clear, you can have confidence that you will get a noticeably straighter smile without having others notice how you’re doing it. Traditional braces, on the other hand, use brackets and wires to move your teeth into the most idea position. This treatment requires regular visits to monitor your progress and to tighten or adjust wires to correct your teeth. Braces are available to patients of any age.

Regardless of which treatment you choose, our goal at Gulf Coast Smiles is to provide you with a stable and aligned bite that minimizes or eliminates future problems and gives you a beautifully straight smile. We want to treat you with the best possible oral care to help you keep a healthy smile for a lifetime.
