  • My son's permanent teeth are growing crooked. What should I do?

    You should schedule an appointment with an orthodontist. The fact that you can see "permanent back teeth growing crooked" suggests to me that there is probably a developing problem which should be properly evaluated at this time. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends an initial orthodontic evaluation of children by age 7.   READ MORE

  • My daughter is 13 years old and has a bite problem. What will be the course of treatment?

    An orthodontist needs to examine your growing child to answer several important questions: 1. To what degree is the bite problem caused by improper size and relative position of the jaws, and to what degree is it caused by improper position of the teeth in both jaws. 2. Is there a family history of such "bad bites" and if there is what kind of treatment has been rendered to those family members? 3.Where does your child fall on the growth curve, i.e., what percentage of growth remains ? The answers to these questions require thorough examination, discussion with parents, and the appropriate orthodontic records which will include interpretation of the clinical and radiographic data that have been obtained. The orthodontist will then be able to assess the timing and the nature and the extent of the treatment he or she will recommend to you.     READ MORE

  • What are invisible braces? Are they very expensive?

    There are two types of invisible braces: Clear aligners and braces that are affixed to the tongue side portion of the teeth. The cost of these braces can range widely depending upon where you are treated.    READ MORE

  • Can I drink through a straw with braces?

    Yes. Except if you have a metal bar which runs across your palate to connect your upper molars. In that case, you should minimize drinking through straws as the sucking action might result in a line on your tongue. READ MORE

  • Do braces affect your face shape?

    Orthodontic tooth movement can affect the shape of your face basically in the area below your nose and above your chin. The way in which the shape of your face is affected depends upon the way the teeth are moved.  As an example, if permanent teeth are extracted, one facial result might be a reduction in the protrusion of the lips.  READ MORE

  • How is an overbite usually treated?

    The answer to your question depends upon the nature and the degree of your overbite: If it is primarily caused by the arrangement of the teeth, clear aligners will probably be effective in improving it. On the other hand, if it is primarily caused by the the arrangement of the jaws, braces or aligners alone will probably not be sufficient to improve it. Your orthodontist will determine the answers to these questions after evaluating the appropriate orthodontic diagnostic records. He or she will then be able to guide you in your decision regarding your treatment.   READ MORE

  • What are some options for an adult looking to straighten their teeth?

    You should schedule an appointment with an orthodontist. He or she will be able to better address your question after a clinical examination and an evaluation of the appropriate diagnostic orthodontic records are completed.Generally speaking, traditional braces on the outside surfaces of the teeth, lingual braces on the tongue side surfaces of the teeth, and clear aligners are the options available to most adults to straighten their teeth.   READ MORE

  • How do I know if my child needs braces?

    You should schedule an appointment with an orthodontist . He or she will examine your child ,complete and analyze the appropriate diagnostic records , and make a recommendation to you regarding the appropriate timing and course of treatment.  Generally speaking, it is advantageous to correct an overbite at a young age and when the child still has many baby teeth.  In this way, it is often possible for the orthodontist to minimize the extent and cost of any future orthodontic treatment that might be required when the permanent teeth erupt.  READ MORE
