Orthodontic Care, Nesconset NY

Orthodontic Care

Our orthodontists are proficient in treating both children and adults with metal braces, clear braces and Invisalign®. Having braces isn’t just about improving your smile, but it’s also about improving your overall dental health and confidence. Orthodontics may be used to correct malocclusion, overbite, underbites, cross bites, deep bites, crooked teeth and other flaws of the teeth and jaws.

Importantly, our doctors are excellent in treating and recognizing early or interceptive orthodontics. This is often called phase one. Early treatment can be more effective than late treatment and help develop the child’s jaws so there is space for future eruption of permanent teeth and to improve the relationship of the upper and lower jaws. Having early treatment can often prevent trauma and more difficult orthodontic treatment with the removal of adult teeth or even surgery. For some children treating early can prevent more serious problems. Often treating early means an expander or braces but for many children treating early can be close monitoring and and simple treatments such as a space maintainer or retainer.

Invisalign ®

Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth.
