Meet Our Experienced Orthodontist in Miami
Dr. Julio Hernandez has over two decades of experience in orthodontics. He has treated thousands of patients and understands the importance of straight teeth and a correct bite. Dr. Julio uses his vast experience in cosmetic dentistry and facial aesthetics to improve not only his patients’ smiles but also the health of the joints and surrounding tissues! Understanding that teeth are part of an intricate system and that any change to any part of the system will affect the whole system is why Dr. Julio has had such incredible success in treating even the most difficult of dental cases.
Types of Alignment Options AVAILABLE
We have multiple options of orthodontics to offer our patients, accommodating to fit every person’s individual needs. Some of our most popular choices include:
Traditional Metal Braces in Miami
Traditional metal braces are becoming more and more comfortable and affordable and Dr. Julio Hernandez is the best dentist for braces! Metal braces are the most common type of braces and they are the least expensive braces on the market.
How Metal Braces Work
Metal braces are made of high-grade stainless steel and straighten teeth using metal brackets and wires. Although only one bracket is glued to each tooth, Dr. Julio uses a series of wires throughout the treatment to align the teeth. These brackets and wires will gradually move the teeth into their desired locations to straighten teeth and improve the patient’s bite and smile. The small elastic that holds the wires to the braces comes in different colors. The braces colors are changed every month. The patient can choose the braces colors from the wide range of colors we have in the office.
First Time in Braces? – What to Expect
Typically, when a patient first gets metal braces, the gums and cheek tissue can become irritated. The dentist will discuss several tips to help deal with this discomfort, such as using a saltwater rinse and applying wax to the metal brackets. These treatments successfully reduce pain in the first few weeks as the wearer’s oral tissues become accustomed to the braces.

Miami Clear Ceramic Braces
Clear ceramic braces are a wonderful alternative to conventional metal braces for adults. They are manufactured using computer technology for ideal precision. This means that tooth movement is more predictable to enable wonderful results. Best of all, ceramic braces will never stain or discolor throughout your treatment. All around, ceramic braces are amazing and perfect for most dental conditions.
Advantages of Clear Ceramic Braces vs. Metal Braces
There are a few advantages to having ceramic braces as an adult. These include:
- Appearance: While clear braces may be the same as traditional metal braces in function, they are obviously clear so they are much less noticeable. Clear porcelain braces are a wonderful alternative and give patients the same, effective treatment as traditional metal braces.
- Self-Esteem: Many patients report that clear braces give them more confidence and self-esteem at work and in social situations. They feel that people are not focusing on their braces rather, focusing on their smiles.
How Clear Ceramic Braces Work
Traditional braces and clear braces work in the same way: they gradually move teeth into the correct location to straighten and improve the bite and smile. The clear, porcelain braces are carefully placed on the teeth by Dr. Julio. Each bracket is specifically designed to move the tooth to a certain position. Our Miami dentist is an expert in orthodontics and carefully selects his braces and wires to achieve optimum results.
The most popular and well-known brand of clear braces is Invisalign® If you are looking for a beautiful option of teeth straightening, Invisalign® could be for you. These custom-made, personalized sets of aligner trays are completely clear. Patients usually wear them for about 22 hours throughout the day on a regular basis.

Functional Orthodontic Appliances
Some dental conditions will require orthodontic appliances in addition to braces. Appliances include things like expanders, tongue habit appliances, and more. Only a dentist or orthodontist can determine who will need additional orthodontic appliances.
Dr. Julio can help widen your child’s jawbone using functional orthodontic appliances in Miami! Adequate facial growth & symmetry is largely due to proper bone development. Upper & lower jawbones that are underdeveloped will cause teeth to be crowded and often cause bite or speech problems. Additionally, both overdeveloped & underdeveloped jaws will cause profile changes & may cause facial asymmetry.
