Orthodontics Overview

What Encompasses Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a part of dentistry that specializes in the prevention and treatment of dental and facial irregularities. The practice of orthodontics requires professional skills in the design, application and control of corrective appliances to bring teeth, lips and jaws into proper alignment and facial balance. Dentists are required to have an additional 2-4 years of full-time education for an orthodontic specialty degree.

About Braces

Dr. Jacquie Smiles offers braces for adults, teens and kids in NY and NJ area.

Your dentist may have discussed with you the benefits of having healthy teeth and proper jaw alignment. Crooked and crowded teeth are hard to clean and maintain. This can result in tooth decay, worsen gum disease and lead to tooth loss.

Orthodontic Guide

The First Step

Your primary dentist may recommend at some time during your lifetime that you visit an orthodontist. This can make some patients nervous, but there is no need to be. Orthodontists are specialists that diagnose, treat and prevent dental irregularities. Orthodontists provide services such as braces, teeth whitening and cosmetic dentistry. Braces is specifically a common reason to visit the orthodontist office, since many people require assistance to align their teeth.

Orthodontic Emergencies

Emergency Care

As a general rule, an emergency appointment may be made when there is severe pain, a loose band, a broken wire or something sticking out that you can’t take care of. It’s important to know the names of the parts of your appliances. It will help, when you phone our office, to be able to identify what part is broken or out of place.

AcceleDent is approved by the FDA and has been used by many patients worldwide. You can now speed up your tooth movement by up to 50% using this pain-free, easy appliance. Combined with existing orthodontic appliances like Invisalign, patients can use Acceledent Aura to potentially cut their treatment time in half since it is compatible with most types of braces.
