Braces in Yorktown Heights, NY
Traditional Treatment Meets Non-Traditional Approaches
For many of our patients, traditional metal braces in Yorktown Heights, NY are still the best option for transforming a smile. While they might not be the newest type of braces out there, the materials in these metal braces are now stronger and more resilient than ever before. These metal braces are also incredibly effective and can fix some of the most difficult cases. They work by adhering brackets to your teeth with an archwire, which will appear straight when your treatment is complete. The archwire running through the brackets is held on by colored bands that can be customized based on your preferences.
For patients with malocclusion or a bad bite, we may utilize neuromuscular dentistry in combination with braces. This approach focuses on realigning the jaw position to correct the malocclusion. It is also used to treat or alleviate TMJ/TMD disorder.
Controlled Arch Orthodontics
Unlike traditional orthodontics, controlled arch orthodontics takes your whole oral foundation into consideration, not just straightening your teeth. It also focuses on jaw alignment and involves widening the jaw to its natural state by broadening the arch to gain space. Once widened, jaws are realigned to a more natural position helping teeth move into place. Controlled arch orthodontics also allows for more airflow, which helps sleep apnea patients and reduces jaw problems that may lead to TMJ/TMD disorder.
