What Does Orthodontic Treatment Accomplish?

Orthodontic treatments consist of procedures that address misalignments of the teeth or jaws to improve the appearance of your smile and the functionality of your bite. We offer Invisalign® clear aligners to address mild to moderate misalignments of the teeth, while our reliable orthodontic braces can treat mild to complex problems of the teeth and jaws. Our New York orthodontic treatments effectively address crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth, as well as overbites, underbites, and crossbites.

The two treatment options look different but accomplish the results you're looking for. Clear aligners consist of graduating trays made from a smooth, clear plastic. The trays apply pinpoint pressure to shift your teeth to create a straighter smile. Traditional braces use metal brackets and an archwire to guide your teeth into their new positions, resulting in the straight smile you want.

New York Aesthetics Orthodontics for Kids and Teens

Your child's smile develops significantly from their time as a preteen through their teen years. That's why our team focuses on preventive care, including interceptive orthodontics. We carefully monitor your child's maturing jaws and bite pattern to determine if they need braces or clear aligners to achieve a straight smile.

Our team believes that addressing alignment issues early prevents more extensive treatments later on in life, which is why we offer Invisalign® Teen to kids as young as 12 if all of their permanent teeth have erupted. For kids and teens with moderate to severe misalignment issues, we offer traditional braces to achieve beautiful results. Regardless of which treatment your child receives, we use a powerful iTero® scanner to create impressions instead of traditional molds to maximize your child's comfort.

Orthodontic Treatment for Adults

We understand that many adults may want to straighten their smile, especially if they had braces previously, but their smile has relapsed. That is why we offer braces or Invisalign clear aligners to adults who want to correct bite misalignment. If you had braces when you were a teen, but your retainer was lost or broken, and your teeth have shifted, our team offers reliable retreatments to help you enjoy a beautiful, straight smile once more.

You can trust that we will treat you with dignity and compassion, regardless of the reason you're interested in our aesthetic orthodontic treatment. We use digital impressions, so you don't have to worry about traditional molds, and we provide tips and instructions to help you decide which orthodontic treatment is right for you.

Orthodontic Braces FAQs

Transforming your smile is a complex journey and it's normal to have questions. We encourage you to share your questions and concerns. Our team is happy to provide the answers and insight you need to make an informed decision regarding your custom orthodontic treatment plan. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about aesthetic orthodontics in New York.

Are there oral health benefits to orthodontic treatments?

Yes. When your teeth are evenly spaced, it makes them easier to brush and floss, which helps prevent cavities, infection, and gum disease. It also corrects your bite pattern, which is an effective way to avoid uneven wear on your teeth and protect them from damage.

Braces consist of wires and brackets, which may cause some irritation or pressure when first placed or when the archwire is tightened. The feeling of discomfort may last for a couple of days, but you can take over-the-counter pain medication to alleviate the discomfort. You can also use oral gel or wax to create a smooth barrier between the braces and your lips and cheeks.

No. Clear aligners are completely removable, so you don't have to give up any of your favorite foods or drinks during treatment. You simply remove the clear trays before you eat or drink, enjoy your meal, brush your teeth, clean your aligners, and put them back in. It's important to remove your aligners when you eat because the forces exerted when you chew can damage the trays and liquids can stain the plastic.
