What Is An Orthodontist?

At Sunshine Orthodontics our goal is to provide the highest quality orthodontic care and treatment from the most qualified professionals available throughout Rhinebeck, Kingston, Wappingers Falls and surrounding Dutchess County areas.

Many people believe a dentist and orthodontist are the same thing but that’s not quite the case. The two professional titles certainly have some similarities, and they do work together, but orthodontics is a specific type of dental care. An orthodontist is a specialist that treats certain types of dental problems.

What Does An Orthodontist Do?

what-is-an-orthodontist-wappingers-falls-nyAn orthodontist such as Dr. Mansour is a fully qualified dentist who takes on an additional 2-3 years of orthodontic schooling and gains extensive clinical experience in an orthodontic residency program. The American Association of Orthodontists is the overseeing body for this branch of elite dentistry.

The most important job for an orthodontist is identifying, treating, and preventing issues with your teeth and mouth. Orthodontists are experts at treating misaligned or overcrowded teeth, as well as bite problems (malocclusions). Malocclusions can also result when the upper and lower jaws don’t fit together properly, whether from premature loss of baby teeth, developmental abnormalities, trauma, or other causes.

Orthodontic Treatment

If you suffer from any of the following issues, you may be a candidate for orthodontic treatment:

Overbitewhere the upper front teeth stick out over the lower teeth
Underbitewhere the lower teeth are too far forward or the upper teeth too far back
Cross bitewhen the upper teeth do not come down slightly in front of the lower teeth when biting together normally
Open bitespace between the biting surfaces of the front and/or side teeth when the back teeth bite together
Misplaced midlinewhen the center of your upper front teeth does not line up with the center of your lower front teeth
Spacinggaps between the teeth as a result of missing teeth or teeth that do not “fill up” the mouth
Crowdingwhen there are too many teeth for the dental ridge to accommodate

 

Types of Treatments

  • Traditional Braces – made from a high-grade stainless steel with metal brackets and archwires, which put pressure on teeth to move slowly into the correct position.
  • Clear braces – work in the same way as traditional braces, but the brackets are made from a clear, transparent ceramic material.
  • Invisalign – custom-made removable clear aligners that are virtually invisible and work in increments.
  • Invisalign Teen – clear aligners that are removable and virtually invisible to ensure you still enjoy your favorite foods and social events.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

Invisalign-van-nuys-caThere are many factors that can determine your Invisalign cost: how extensive the issues are that you want corrected, how long your treatment plan will last, and the specific treatment details prescribed by the doctor.

We accept most major insurance providers, which can offer the benefit of personal reduced costs.  We also accept most major credit cars in addition to offering flexible payment plans that fit your budget, and payment arrangements to match your needs.

What Is Invisalign?

The Invisalign system is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. Invisalign uses advanced 3D computer imaging technology to depict your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position. Then, a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth to move them little by little. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series until the final position of your teeth is achieved. Your Invisalign treatment time will be determined by your doctor based on your specific needs.

Invisalign Teen 

Why make orthodontic treatment worse then it has to be? Invisalign Teen offers the benefits and results of having braces, without the mouth full of metal and limitations that come with it.  These clear aligners are removable, allowing teens to continue enjoying the foods they love like pizza and popcorn.  They are also comfortable and durable so they will never get in the way with extracurricular activities or social events such as sports, band practice, prom, or yearbook pictures.

Invisalign Vs. Braces

Although the traditional braces cost can be slightly cheaper then the Invisalign cost in some cases, Invisalign offers advantages that many of our patients consider priceless.  Made to be completely removable whenever necessary, allowing you to continue enjoying your favorite foods and drinks, and making brushing, flossing, and cleaning much easier.  These clear aligners are made of smooth plastic for comfort, eliminating bulky and annoying brackets and elastics.  They are also extremely durable to reduce your number of orthodontist visits during treatment.

Other Treatment Options

  • Traditional metal braces – the most common type, made of high grade stainless steel brackets and archwires.
  • Self-ligating braces – made up of the same materials as traditional braces but do not require the use of elastics.
  • Ceramic braces – made up of clear materials to blend in with your natural tooth color.
  • Lingual braces – hidden behind your teeth making them “invisible” when you smile.

When’s The Right Time?

Early treatment is recommended around age 7 by The American Association of Orthodontists.  The goal of early treatment is to evaluate needs, correct the growth of the jaw, and fix certain bite problems.  Early treatment also helps to make room for permanent teeth to come in properly, lessening the chance of extractions in the future.

Many adults make the choice to receive treatment because they understand the importance of maintaining their health, and they want to feel better about their appearance.  We understand that children and adults have different needs, and require a different level of attention and care.  It is never too late to take the right steps to the smile you have always wanted.

Benefits of Invisalign in Rhinebeck, Kingston, and Wappingers

For most people, achieving a healthy, beautiful smile is the reason for receiving orthodontic care. If you’re self-conscious about your smile, correcting your concerns with braces or Invisalign will greatly improve the way you look and feel.  When your treatment is complete, you will have the smile you’ve always dreamed of and the confidence to show it off!

  • Cost-effective option for kids, teens, & adults.
  • Unique style! At each appointment, we fit new elastics around metal brackets that hold the wire in. The possibilities of color combinations are endless, which makes getting treatment more fun for kids!

Disadvantages

  • Metal can irritate gums and cheeks, at first.
  • Traditional, metal brackets are very noticeable.
  • Be careful about what you eat, especially things that can stick to the braces (such as caramel or gum). You also have to avoid eating hard foods, which can move or dislodge the brackets.

Types of Braces

Thanks to today’s advances in orthodontic technology,  Sunshine Orthodontics in Wappingers Falls, New York can provide our patients with more options when it comes to wearing braces than ever before.

Please see below to find more information for traditional, clear, or invisible braces. You can also ask us to learn more about the types of braces we offer at our office. You need to speak with your New York orthodontist to determine which appliance is right for you.

Invisible Braces in New York

Clear appliances, such as Invisalign, use a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners to straighten your teeth. And, no one can tell you are wearing those aligners because they are invisible!

Clear Ceramic Braces in New York

Clear ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, clear ceramic braces are used mainly on older teenagers and adult patients who have aesthetic concerns. While clear braces are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger than metal braces. The only drawback to ceramic brackets is that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits with certain foods and smoking. If you want more information about clear braces in New York, feel free to call our office today!

Traditional Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are smaller and more comfortable today than ever before.
