Dr. Tetri Clinic provides orthodontic treatment with braces or aligners, diagnosis according to the standards of gneuromuscular dentistry, and correction of various bite pathologies in adults and children.
Indications for orthodontic treatment
This depends on:
- Plate material: metal, ceramic, sapphire.
- Placement method: ligature (braces are fixed on the arch with elastic bands), self-ligating (the arch is installed in special locks).
- Fixation area: lingual (on the exterior of the teeth), vestibular (on the interior).
Aligners are removable transparent mouth guards that fit tightly over the surface of the teeth. A set of mouthguards is made for a course of orthodontic treatment. Every 14 days, the patient puts on a new guard to move the teeth consistently.

It is important to find out how the lower jaw moves as well as the condition of the facial muscles and the temporomandibular joint when examining a patient with a malocclusion. This is the only way for the patient to get not just straight teeth but the correct functioning of the masticatory muscles and perfect occlusion after treatment.
We perform computer tomography for a detailed study of the structure of the patient’s dentoalveolar system and the location of the roots.
We scan the movement of the mandible in three planes. We calculate the central occlusion to a fraction of a millimeter – the place of physiologically correct jaw clamping with uniform tension of facial muscles.
We monitor the activity of the masticatory and temporal muscles in the online mode and identify the presence / absence of deviations of their position from the central occlusion.
Stages of orthodontic treatment
Retainers – thin metal wires that prevent the teeth from returning to their former position – must be placed for at least 3 years at the end of orthodontic treatment.
Perfect bite at Tetri’s Smile
It is impossible to restore the correct bite, the correct closure of the upper and lower jaws, and the even distribution of the chewing load without knowledge of gneuromuscular dentistry.
Tetri’s Smile is one of several clinics in Florida that practice neuromuscular dentistry. Dr. Tetri is a student of Dr. Clayton A. Chan, founder of Occlusion Connections – a Center for Gneuromuscular and Orthopedic Advancement.
During the first few days, the patient may experience discomfort and moderate pain due to the pressure of the braces on the teeth. Adaptation takes 5-7 days and the teeth gradually begin to move in the right direction.
Yes, as long as the crown or bridge is supported by your natural teeth. The orthopedic structure is removed, orthodontic treatment is performed, and then a new crown or bridge is placed.
The answer is “no” if you have an implant. It cannot be moved; it fuses tightly with the bone. It will interfere with the adjacent teeth.
