Orthodontics is a beneficial process that enhances your appearance and improves the overall health of your teeth. While they can elevate your self-esteem, braces address many of the issues associated with a poor fit of the teeth. This can include crowding of the teeth, misalignment of the jaws, abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, and excessive stress of gum tissue and the bone that support the teeth. Additionally, because excessively crowded teeth can be difficult to clean, braces can help avoid tooth decay and gum disease. Orthodontics offers a beautiful smile while achieving so much more!

Child Orthodontics (early treatment)
Years ago, it was recommended that a patient wait until they had lost all of their baby teeth and most of their permanent teeth had erupted before starting braces. Over time, orthodontics has evolved to address issues that would be better treated at an earlier age. As children develop and grow, they may show beginning signs of jaw issues. If the upper or lower jaw is growing too much or not enough or if there is severe crowding of the teeth, it would be best to have an orthodontic evaluation.
If necessary, orthodontic appliances can be used to direct the growth of the upper and lower jaws, which would improve the relationship between the jaws, align and decrease crowding of the teeth, and create space for the eruption of permanent teeth. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends an orthodontic evaluation at the age of 7. Does this mean that all young children need orthodontic treatment? Absolutely Not! Dr. Benbassat would recommend it in cases where it would provide the best possible benefit to the patient.
Early treatment will usually take 8 to 12 months to complete.
Comprehensive treatment (Phase 2)
This is for children with all of their permanent teeth and for adults. It usually includes full upper and lower braces to fully align all of the permanent teeth. It combines all treatment needs into one treatment plan at a more mature age.
A comprehensive treatment will usually take about 18 months.
There is no age limit for orthodontic treatment as most people can benefit from ideal tooth alignment! In fact, one in every five orthodontic patients is over the age of 18.
Tooth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy. Depending on your goals, there is a wide range of esthetic options available to you. We can straighten just a few teeth that concern you, or all your teeth. Your dentist may want us to move your teeth in preparation for veneers, crowns, or implants. We can align your teeth using clear braces, using lingual braces on the inside surfaces, or without braces at all, using Invisalign®.
Orthodontics and jaw surgery
Orthognathic surgery is needed when jaws don't meet correctly and/or teeth don't seem to fit with jaws. Teeth are straightened with braces, and corrective jaw surgery repositions misaligned jaws. This not only improves facial appearance, but also ensures that teeth meet correctly and function properly.
People who can benefit from orthognathic surgery include those with an improper bite or whose jaws are positioned incorrectly. Jaw growth is a gradual process, and in some instances, the upper and lower jaws may grow at different rates. The result can be a host of problems that can affect chewing function, speech, long-term oral health, and appearance. Injury to the jaw or birth defects can also affect jaw alignment. While, orthodontics alone can correct many bite problems when only the teeth are involved, orthognathic surgery may be required if there is a skeletal discrepancy.
Invisalign® is a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners or trays created for you.
Invisalign® was designed for adults seeking to improve their smile, but it can successfully be used by teens as well. These trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth as they gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements planned for you. No brackets, no wires. You just wear a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile without anyone knowing you are straightening your teeth.
For those in a rush to get out of their braces, we offer different services:
The AcceleDent® System is a groundbreaking technology in orthodontic care which can help accelerate tooth movement, shorting conventional orthodontic treatment (18 months) by 5 months. While the technology to stimulate bone remodeling and healing has been around for a long time, it has recently been applied to Orthodontics.
It works by generating gentle pulsatile forces that transmit through the roots of teeth and their surrounding bone which helps accelerate the cellular response. With only 20 minutes of use per day, patients experience significantly shorter treatment times and also reduced discomfort.
It’s a system used to increase the body’s own ability to heal thus allowing for faster tooth movement by using “micro-osteoperforations” adjacent to the teeth to be moved. It’s like acupuncture to speed up your orthodontic treatment! You may only need one or two Propel “acupuncture” sessions through an entire orthodontic treatment to slash down your time in braces.
