Braces & Orthodontics in Fishkill, NY

Are you wondering if braces could help you or your child? Call our Family Dental Group orthodontist in Fishkill, NY today to schedule a consultation. You’ll leave your appointment knowing your orthodontic treatment options, how long treatment will take, and how much it will cost.

It is incredibly rewarding to see the transformation that occurs as our patients go from being self-conscious to self-confident as their teeth become straight and beautiful. If you or your child has a smile that’s less than perfect, call our Fishkill orthodontist today.

Common Reasons for Braces

Just as every person is different, so is every smile. Genetics play a big role in how your teeth look. Childhood habits including thumb sucking can also impact tooth alignment. Braces work by gently moving the teeth into proper position over a period of time. Our orthodontist in Fishkill can correct almost any orthodontic problem including:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Overbite (front upper teeth cover up the front lower teeth)
  • Underbite (front upper teeth are behind the front lower teeth)
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite
  • Buck teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Jaw misalignment

Types of Dental Braces

Modern dentistry has given us more orthodontic options than ever. Our orthodontist offers several different types of braces in Fishkill, NY. The type of braces that is best for you depends on the type of treatment needed, your lifestyle, and your budget.

    • Traditional braces

      These have the traditional high-quality, stainless steel brackets. Now, you can customize them with colored bands to fit 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.

    • Invisalign®

      Unlike braces, which attach to the teeth, Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gently move teeth into the proper position. READ MORE

Braces for Children and Teenagers

For many teenagers and pre-teens, getting braces is a big milestone. Their classmates and friends may have braces already, and many kids think it’s cool to personalize their braces with different colored bands. Plus, it boosts their self-confidence as their teeth straighten.

Orthodontic treatment can help younger children, too. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends children see an orthodontist by age seven to identify any problems with tooth alignment or jaw alignment. Early orthodontic treatment, which is also called Phase I Treatment, can help guide the jaws so the permanent teeth come in correctly. Early treatment can lessen the amount of time the child may need braces later.

Children typically get braces once their baby teeth have been replaced with their permanent teeth; many children start braces between the ages of 11 and 13. Our orthodontist in Fishkill will talk to you about the best timing to start braces for your child.

Braces for Adults

It’s never too late to have a beautiful smile. In fact, about one in five orthodontic patients is an adult, according to the American Association of Orthodontists. Three-quarters of adults have some sort of a malocclusion, the technical term for a bad bite. Common orthodontic problems in adults include teeth that have drifted out of position, spacing issues, and crowding.

Many adults choose to get braces for social or professional reasons. Having a beautiful smile makes a good impression, and can boost a person’s self-confidence. Plus, there are many aesthetic choices for orthodontic treatment now. Adults may choose clear ceramic braces instead of traditional stainless steel braces. Another aesthetic option is Invisalign, a series of clear, removable aligners that gently guide teeth into position. Our orthodontist in Fishkill will be happy to discuss the options with you.

Come in for an Orthodontic Consultation

Having properly aligned teeth can make them easier to clean, which means fewer cavities. Properly aligned teeth can also make it easier to eat and to speak. Call us today to schedule an orthodontic consultation to find how our orthodontist in Fishkill can help you have a smile you’re proud to show off.
