Your Orthodontic Options

How treatment from your orthodontist in Upper East Side, New York, can give you a straight, beautiful smile

If you want a straight smile, did you know there are now more orthodontic options than ever before? It’s true! Thanks to modern dental materials and techniques, there is an orthodontic treatment to suit every lifestyle and every need. Orthodontic treatment can give you a straight, beautiful smile quicker, more easily, and more comfortable than you’ve ever thought possible.

Here at Upper East Smiles in the Upper East Side, your orthodontist, Dr. Jessie Choi, offers a complete line-up of orthodontic options for you to choose from, including:

  • Conventional metal brackets and wires, the mainstay of orthodontic treatment
  • Ceramic brackets and clear wires, an excellent aesthetic option
  • Lingual braces, which are attached to the back surfaces of your teeth

You can also choose custom trays, known as aligners, to straighten your smile. These aligners are clear, smooth, and virtually invisible to people around you.

No matter which orthodontic option you choose, you can have a straight smile in as little as 6 to 30 months. Why is it important to have a straight smile? Consider that straightening your smile provides:

  • A more appealing, attractive smile, which can enhance your self-esteem and self-confidence
  • A smile that is easier to keep clean, because it’s easier to brush and floss straight teeth
  • Less stress on your teeth, so you have a lessened chance of broken teeth and needing restorations later on
  • Less stress on your jaws, which can help prevent headaches, earaches, TMJ, and facial pain
  • A more functional bite, which helps you chew and enjoy the foods you love
