Orthodontics & Braces in Hudson Valley, NY

Are you wondering if dental braces could help you or your child have a beautiful smile? Call any of our Family Dental Group offices today to schedule a consultation with one of our orthodontists. You’ll leave your appointment knowing your orthodontic treatment options, how long treatment will take, how much it will cost, and how you can fit the cost into your family budget.

It is very rewarding to see the transformation that occurs as our patients go from being self-conscious to self-confident because of braces. If you or your child has a smile that is less than perfect, call one of our orthodontists today.

How Do Braces Straighten Teeth?

Braces work by gently moving the teeth into proper alignment over a period of time. Our orthodontist will place a bracket on each tooth and then thread a thin wire, called an arch wire, through the brackets. The arch wire applies a gentle amount of pressure to each tooth, slowly and carefully moving each tooth into proper position.

There are many reasons why people may need braces. Genetics play a big role in how your teeth look. Childhood habits including thumb sucking can also impact tooth alignment. Our orthodontists in Hudson Valley can correct a variety of orthodontic problems including:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Open bite
  • Scissor bite
  • Buck teeth (overjet)
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Jaw misalignment

Types of Dental Braces

Braces are back in fashion. Many people can’t wait to get braces, especially since there are more styles to choose from than ever. The type of braces that is best for you depends on the type of treatment you need, your lifestyle, and your budget.

  • Traditional Braces
    These have the traditional high-quality, stainless steel brackets. Many kids and teens think they’re cool because you can customize the braces with colored bands that reflect your favorite colors, your school colors, or your personal style.
  • Clear Braces
    Clear ceramic or tooth-colored ceramic brackets are nearly invisible against the tooth. They are stain-resistant, odor-resistant, and have a smooth surface. These are popular with image-conscious teenagers and adults.
  • Invisalign® Clear Aligners
    Unlike braces, which are attached to the teeth, Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gently move teeth into proper position. READ MORE

When Should You Take Your Child to an Orthodontist?

Many parents are surprised to learn that the American Association of Orthodontists recommends children see an orthodontist around age seven to identify any problems with tooth alignment or jaw alignment. Early orthodontic treatment, which is also called Phase I Treatment, can reduce the amount of time the child may need braces later.
