Orthodontic Services

Orthodontics deals with the diagnosis and treatment of misaligned teeth. With orthodontics, you can improve not only the appearance of your smile but your dental health as well. Dental specialists in Broadway can fix crooked teeth, underbite, overbite, crossbite, malocclusion, or any other issue with the teeth or jaw.

Misaligned teeth can be harder to take care of because you can’t get every surface clean if your teeth are overlapping and you can’t floss in between your teeth if they are crooked. Crooked teeth also put extra stress on your jaw muscles leading to TMJ, neck or shoulder pain.

Orthodontics can realign your teeth with the use of :

Braces are the most common way to fix misaligned teeth. Braces consist of wire brackets and bands designed to slowly “pull” the teeth into a straight position. Braces are tightened each month until your teeth are in the position you want them to be. Brooklyn, NY dentistry center can make braces colorful and fun for kids or clear and less noticeable for adults.

Invisalign allows you to straighten your teeth without metal brackets in your mouth. Instead, you have several Invisalign retainers that you change as your teeth shift position. They provide the same consistent force as traditional braces without the visible wires in your mouth. Invisalign is a great option for teens and adults who don’t want anyone to know they are wearing braces.

After your braces come off, you just need to wear a retainer a few times a week. This is to prevent your teeth from moving back to their original position. There are different types of retainers so talk to your Brooklyn orthodontist to determine which one is right for you.

Whichever braces you choose, increasing patient comfort and reducing the number of office visits while lowering potential tissue damage are the main goals of orthodontists at Broadway Family Dental in Brooklyn, NY.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule an orthodontist appointment please don’t hesitate to contact our Brooklyn, NY office. We are happy to help.
