The Benefits of Gentle Dentistry

General Dentistry Orlando FL

When you think about your dental provider and the attributes you'd like them to have, "gentle" is usually at the top of the list.

While it's obviously important for a provider to be friendly, skilled, and build rapport with us, the benefits of gentle dentistry far exceed most other expectations.

Dr. Gary Michaelson is your premiere Orlando, FL dentist, and he's been providing gentle, high-quality dentistry to our patients for over 25 years. Here are some of the advanced services you can expect to find when you work with Dr. Michaelson. You can rest assured that all our services are provided with your comfort in mind and with the most gentle touch.


Dr. Michaelson offers two options for orthodontics to accommodate patients with crooked or misaligned teeth: 

  • Invisalign offers a straighter smile with the discretion of clear plastic aligners as opposed to traditional metal brackets and wires.
  • Six Month Smiles focuses on aligning your front six teeth with subtle clear brackets and wires. Since this treatment is not focused on correcting your bite, Six Month Smiles delivers efficient treatment that can be completed in a matter of weeks.

Dr. Michaelson can determine which system best suits your needs during an examination and x-rays.

Comprehensive Implant Dentistry

This means that Dr. Michaelson handles your entire procedure from start to finish, including the surgical portion, and you'll be surrounded by the gentle team you've come to trust throughout your treatment.

Dental implants are considered dentistry's best tooth replacement option because they restore both your root and your tooth. They also boast a 95% success rate, making them a very reliable treatment.
