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.

As a certified Invisalign provider, Dr. Mansour will ensure that your treatment process is in the hands of the area’s top specialists.

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!

Teens love Invisalign because it is discreet and convenient! Invisalign offers teens a lot more freedom than traditional, metal braces. Here are more reasons why teens love Invisalign:

Clear Appearance
Invisalign aligners are clear and virtually undetectable. This allows teens to straighten their teeth without anyone ever noticing that they are going through treatment.

Removable
You remove your aligners to eat, drink, and brush and can remove them for that special occasion, meaning that, unlike with traditional orthodontic treatments, there are no foods you have to avoid. Additionally, you can maintain your current dental hygiene regimen. For the best results and a timely outcome, aligners should be worn for 20 to 22 hours per day.

Eat Anything
Trays should be removed prior to eating, and for your lucky teen (and you possibly as meal maker) this means no dining restrictions. Patients with traditional braces must refrain from eating sticky foods, crunch foods, meat with bones (ie. buffalo wings), hard fruit, corn on the cob, popcorn and so much more, but with Invisalign those restrictions are not an issue.

Active Lifestyle
Teens who are already engaging in sports or physical activity don’t need to change their lifestyle or worry about brackets and wires doing damage to their mouths, or conversely, damaging their metal braces in rough play. The Invisalign Teen trays are a smooth fit, and let them play their best.

Dental Hygiene
The Invisalign trays are removed in order to brush and floss, and that makes good oral hygiene easier and quicker to achieve. Your teen will also need to clean the trays, but that also makes them feel more comfortable and fresh.

Comfort
Invisalign is made of a smooth, comfortable material. There are no wires to poke or brackets to break with Invisalign so it is much more comfortable for you to wear and live with.

Fewer Orthodontic Visits
With Invisalign Teen there is generally less time in our office than with other treatments. Appointments are needed about every 10-12 weeks with the average treatment time with Invisalign being about 10-14 months.

Invisalign Teen Rhinebeck NY 

invisalign-teen-rhinebeck-ny

Dr. Ahmed Mansour of Sunshine Orthodontics works closely with clients to help them determine which braces treatment will deliver the best results. A beautiful smile is important at any age, but thousands of teens are discovering the ease of Invisalign when straightening teeth in Rhinebeck, NY.

Why Choose Invisalign Teen in Rhinebeck NY?

Invisalign Teen is created with clear thermo-plastic that is customized to fit each patient’s teeth. These personalized aligners guide the teeth through the straightening process. Usually, the procedure lasts between 12 and 15 months.

Dr. Mansour recommends Invisalign Teen for a number of dental conditions (unless the teeth are exceptionally crooked). Invisalign Teen is right for patients with:

  • Gapped teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite.

They are clear and more comfortable than traditional braces, and Invisalign is a good choice for active professionals who want to look their best.

For optimum efficiency, patients should wear the aligners 22 hours per day. They can remove the aligners to eat and for oral hygiene.

The Choice is Clear

Popcorn, gum, and apples can be problematic for people with traditional braces. Invisalign Teen patients, however, are able to eat any food at any time. Dr. Mansour has found that Invisalign Teen patients tend to have better oral health than people with traditional metal braces because the clear aligners can be removed. This makes brushing and flossing so much easier than with metal braces!

Due to the clear aligners being removable, clients of Dr. Mansour should be careful not to misplace them. Replacement aligners delay treatment and add extra expense. Contact us, today, to begin the journey to your most beautiful and confident smile!


Dr. Ahmed Mansour and the team at Sunshine Orthodontics are experts in clear braces. If you have any questions pertaining to Invisalign, Invisalign Teen, braces, and clear braces in Rhinebeck, NY, 12572, Hyde Park, NY, Red Hook, NY, Milan, NY, Staatsburg, NY, Hudson, NY, or would like to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Mansour, contact Sunshine Orthodontics at (845) 876-5787.

Adolescent Treatment

 

AdolescenttreatmentBetween the ages of 11 and 15 is the most common time for orthodontic treatment, and for good reasons. By 12, most if not all of the permanent teeth have erupted and are in place, and crooked teeth, gaps and bad bites can easily be detected. These problems will hardly ever correct themselves, so this is when most parents decide to seek orthodontic treatment.

This is also a good time for orthodontic treatment because many negative associations of braces are not present. Many children in this age range undergo orthodontic treatment, and children are very often able to be convinced to wear braces because they see their friends wearing them, too, and want to fit in.

Besides the benefits of fitting in with their friends, children at this age have high metabolisms, which can help shorten overall treatment time and reduce the discomfort of orthodontic treatment.

Call our office for an initial FREE examination, and we will be able to determine the best time for the treatment and outline: the treatment plan, the treatment duration expected, and the approximate cost for the treatment.
