Straighter smiles are typically healthier smiles. Having teeth that are properly aligned, with the help of braces, not only boosts your self-confidence and improves aesthetics, it also reduces your risk of developing complications like:
- Periodontal disease
- Tooth decay
- Abnormal tooth wear
- TMJ disorder
- Broken, chipped teeth
Dr. C has extensive training and experience in phase 1 orthodontics and Invisalign braces. Patients of all ages can enjoy straighter, healthier smiles without having to visit another provider in the Hackensack area for their orthodontic needs.
What is the difference between the two different braces alternatives that we have to offer?
With Invisalign, you can comfortably correct the alignment of your smile without ever wearing metal brackets and wires. Invisalign is clear, removable, and can be worn without most people realizing that there is something over your teeth. We offer a line for both adults as well as teens!
Phase 1 Orthodontics
Interceptive orthodontics, also known as “phase one ortho” or “early braces” is a way for your child to avoid extensive orthodontic therapy later on.
Essentially, we use a series of appliances such as palatal expanders or space maintainers to help avoid crowding while also encouraging proper jaw growth.
How can you be sure if you or your child needs to have your smile straightened? Dr. C recommends performing an orthodontic evaluation on all patients by age 7. Even if you’re an adult who has always wanted to have a straighter smile, we would be happy to answer any questions that you might have.
