Braces

We offer a selection of orthodontic treatment options between traditional braces and ceramic braces.  Traditional braces are made of high grade stainless steel and our ceramic braces are made of clear materials to be less visible and blend in with your natural teeth.

What Are Traditional, Metal Braces?

sunshinebracespage

Traditional, stainless steel, braces are made of brackets that are bonded to the front of your teeth. Each bracket has edges known as wings that metal or elastic bands can be tied. They hold the orthodontic wire in place. The brackets are available in different shapes and sizes (depending on the manufacturer).

Dr. Mansour and the team at Sunshine Orthodontics work with people of all ages in the Hudson Valley of NY! Many adults may feel self conscious about wearing braces, but nearly 25% of all orthodontic patients are now adults. Never feel uncomfortable for wanting to better your smile and your health!

Advantages

  • These metal brackets won’t stain or chip.
  • 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. While regular metal braces are still widely used, invisible and clear braces in New York are becoming increasingly popular along with removable appliances that can be used for mild cases of misaligned teeth.

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! Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing are less of a hassle. The invisible aligners are comfortable and have no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. If you are interested in getting more information about invisible braces in New York, call our office today!

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. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.

All About Braces

Brushing and Flossing

It’s more important than ever to brush and floss regularly when you have braces, so the teeth and gums are healthy during orthodontic treatment. Patients who do not keep their teeth clean may require more frequent visits to the dentist for a professional cleaning. Adults who have a history of gum disease should also see a periodontist during orthodontic treatment. Watch the two videos below on the proper care of braces during orthodontic treatment.

Eating with Braces

What can you eat? Let’s talk about what you shouldn’t eat! For the first day or so, stick to soft foods. Avoid tough meats, hard breads, and raw vegetables. Before long, you’ll be able to bite a cucumber again. But you’ll need to protect your orthodontic appliances when you eat for as long as you’re wearing braces.

Foods to Avoid

  • Chewy foods: bagels, hard rolls, licorice
  • Crunchy foods: popcorn, ice
  • Sticky foods: caramels, gum
  • Hard foods: nuts, candy
  • Foods you have to bite into: corn on the cob, apples, carrots

Chewing on hard things (for example, pens, pencils or fingernails) can damage the braces. Damaged braces will cause treatment to take longer.

In order to help our patients maintain good oral health throughout treatment many products from Philips SONICARE are offered for purchase in our offices

Adult Treatment

adulttreatmentOrthodontics is not just for children and teens. In fact, 1 in every 5 patients in orthodontic treatment is an adult. No one is too old for orthodontic treatment.

Adults seek orthodontic treatment for many of the same reasons as children. Some adults had orthodontic problems as children but were unable to correct them until now. Others, who had treatment as children, may need further treatment as adults due to relapse or limitations in initial treatment.

Benefits of Treatment
Adults can benefit from orthodontic treatment in many ways. These include:

  • Align the teeth to create a more aesthetic and beautiful smile
  • Correct relapse after previous orthodontic treatment due to lack of long term retainer wear
  • Improve the ability to brush and floss, especially for crowded or overlapping lower front teeth
  • Create a better or more comfortable bite and ability to chew
  • Address missing teeth
  • Close spaces between the teeth
  • Reduce excessive wear on the teeth due to grinding or poor bite
  • Jaw surgery to correct discrepancy between the upper and lower jaws.

Appearance of Braces
Many adults are concerned with the appearance of braces. Often, Invisalign® (The invisible alternative to braces) can be used to treat adults. This technology involves clear removable aligners, fabricated through advanced 3D imaging to align the teeth. For more severe problems, we have the option of clear ceramic brackets instead of metal.

Soreness/Discomfort
Orthodontic treatment is no more uncomfortable for adults than children. Adults undergoing orthodontic treatment report the same level of soreness as children (although adults are more willing to tell us about the soreness).

Typically, the teeth are most uncomfortable 12-24 hours after an orthodontic adjustment and will disappear within 3 to 5 days. Modern appliances are smaller and more comfortable to wear. Modern techniques, with the new titanium technology, put less pressure on the teeth to cause discomfort, while moving the teeth more rapidly and efficiently. It also decreases the time required between adjustments to every 8 – 10 weeks. Treatment time, on average, is completed in 15-18 months.

Cost
The fee for adult orthodontic treatment is determined the same way as child or adolescent treatment. It is based on the severity of the problem, the complexity of the correction, the appliances used and the length of time to correct.

Dr. Mansour has treated individuals in their 50’s, 60’s and even their 70’s. It is never too late to gain the smile you have always wanted.

To learn more about your orthodontic treatment options, we invite you to schedule a complimentary consultation at one of our Hudson Valley offices in either Kingston, Rhinebeck or Wappingers Falls, NY.
