Rosewood Orthodontics: Dr. Shamala Pizza

Rosewood Dental Group is proud to have our own orthodontic department within our practice. Dr. Shamala Pizza has been onboard since 2011 and she has been practicing orthodontics for over two decades. She can transform smiles, creating customized treatment plans specifically for each patient. Dr. Pizza strives to create smiles that bring harmony and balance to each person’s facial esthetics.

Orthodontics: Then and Now

Modern Orthodontics is much easier than it was in the past. Patients very rarely need permanent teeth extracted today, unlike in years past. Braces used to be “hammered” on, but now they are applied almost like “stickers” to your teeth. And again, the pendulum in orthodontics is swinging toward more patients seeking treatment with Invisalign, the clear alternative to braces. Treatment with aligners is very comfortable and allows the freedom to eat and clean your teeth without braces. Dr. Pizza has been doing Invisalign since its inception in 2000.

Another significant innovation in orthodontics and dentistry is the switch from putty impression to digital scanners. A scan is quick, comfortable, and brings a little touch of magic to the orthodontic experience as patients see their teeth appear on the screen before their eyes.

Orthodontics is for All Ages

We recommend an initial orthodontic exam as early as seven years old. Of course, most patients still undergo treatment in their teen years. However, patients of all ages benefit from orthodontic treatment. Adults often notice that their teeth have gradually crowded up over the years. There are many options for adults to re-align their teeth, to restore a youthfulness to their smile, and making teeth easier to clean at the same time. Schedule a complimentary consultation today.
