Orthodontic Treatment Options On The Upper West Side

Your smile is your most precious resource. You use it in business, with loved ones and friends, and even in the mirror. You want to be able to smile with confidence.

If something about your smile bothers you, it can have a huge effect on your life. If you would like to fix crooked or protruding teeth, reduce the gaps between your teeth, or ensure proper alignment so that you have a healthy bite, then an orthodontist can help you achieve your goals.

You have more orthodontic treatment options than ever before. Here is a primer on the various treatment options available to you.

Braces

Braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment. Using brackets (attached with special orthodontic adhesive) and wires that fit into the brackets, the teeth are gradually pulled into the correct alignment. Several types of braces are available.

Metal Braces

Metal braces were the first type to be used. While most people are familiar with braces, many people are not aware that the technology of metal braces has changed over the years, improving both the comfort and the aesthetics of wearing metal braces.

Clear Braces

For those who choose braces, but are concerned about their appearance while wearing them, clear braces are an option. With clear braces, the brackets are still placed on the front of the teeth, but are made of a tooth-colored ceramic that is specifically selected to match your teeth. This makes clear braces dramatically less visible than are metal braces.

Lingual Braces

For those who want the most discreet orthodontic treatment available, lingual braces are an option. With lingual braces, the metal brackets are placed on the back of the teeth, rather than on the front. This makes them one of the least visible orthodontic treatment options.

Invisalign

Many people, particularly adults, are understandably concerned about the aesthetic effect of braces. This is why Invisalign was invented and rapidly became a popular orthodontic treatment. With Invisalign, instead of brackets and wires, the teeth are straightened using a set of clear plastic trays, which are called aligners. These are custom-molded to your teeth; every two weeks, you shift to a new aligner, with each one coming closer and closer to the desired alignment of your teeth. Because they are transparent, Invisalign aligners have almost no effect on your appearance.

Dentofacial Orthopedics

Dentofacial orthopedics refers to treatment designed to affect the shape of the jaw bones. Examples include palatal expanders, which expand the upper jaw, and the Herbst and MARA appliances, which push the lower jaw forward (and which have largely replaced headgears in modern treatment). While they are most commonly used in children before puberty, when the bones are still growing, appliances such as these can also be successfully used in adults.

Surgical Orthodontic Treatment

For many people, orthodontic treatment with braces or Invisalign is sufficient to create a healthy alignment of the teeth. For others, the alignment of the jaw bones also needs to be addressed in order to create the optimal result. In these cases, treatment by an orthodontist is combined with surgical treatment by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. The surgeon performs a procedure to realign the jaw; treatment by the orthodontist takes place both before and after the surgery, to bring the teeth into proper alignment.
