Our Comprehensive Orthodontic Services

We offer a wide range of orthodontic treatments for both children and adults, including:

  • Traditional braces, a trusted method for straightening teeth that uses brackets and wires to gradually shift teeth into the optimal position.
  • Invisalign clear aligners, which offer a discreet and comfortable way to straighten your teeth without the metal brackets and wires used in traditional braces.
  • Clear braces, which are similar to traditional braces but use clear or tooth-colored brackets to blend in with your teeth.
  • Early orthodontic treatment, which can help spot and correct issues in children before they become more serious.

At Central Park Orthodontics, we’re committed to using the latest technology and techniques to ensure that our patients receive the best possible care. From our 3D digital imaging system to our comfortable and efficient treatment methods, we’re always working to stay ahead of the curve. Here are a few more reasons why Dr. Pliakas stands out as being the top orthodontist in the Upper West Side:
