Every Smile Starts with a Consultation

Becoming acquainted with our team is one of the benefits that occurs at your first orthodontic consultation in Easton. During which we will find out the best treatment for you and your needs while learning more information about our orthodontic practice. During your first meeting with our Easton team we will:

  • Review your dental and medical history
  • Perform a complete oral exam, with X-Rays, to determine whether treatment is necessary
  • Work with you to create a customized treatment plan
  • Discuss financial information, insurance options, and payment plans

After Your Initial Orthodontic Consultation

Choosing to schedule your first appointment with your orthodontist, completing your paperwork and scheduling a second appointment for x-rays is all that happens after we finish your consultation. One of our Easton orthodontic assistants will be by your side for the whole procedure assuring you and making it as comfortable as possible. They ill make sure to help you understand the entire process completely and guide you in properly placing your orthodontic appliance. From here there will be a second appointment for around 2 hours, which our Easton Orthodontic team will make sure you stay comfortable always.

Scheduling Orthodontic Appointments

In order to make sure that your new orthodontic piece is working correctly, for every four to eight weeks it is recommended by our Easton orthodontic team to set up an appointment. To get a appointment that works right for you, we will work around your hectic work and life schedule. It is important for us to make sure that you’re looked after always and cared for.

If you are unable to make it to your appointment at any time, it is alright for you to contact our Easton office at any time to let us know.

Easton Treatment Options

Child & Teenage Orthodontics & Teeth Straightening

Common orthodontic issues are: crowding, widely spaced teeth, jaw growth problems, protruding teeth, or bad bites for children (often at time inherited or a result of injury). Thumb-sucking habits or early to late tooth loss can also be a cause of bad bites in children. With adults though, orthodontic problems can continue with age. The only way to fix those problems from then is orthodontic surgery. The benefit for children’s orthodontic issues is that they still have time for them to mend themselves. Adults jaws will harden by adulthood.

Preventing this as your child ages is possible at our Easton office. They can receive the proper orthodontic treatment for this that will help decrease the possibility of any necessity for orthodontic surgery later in life. Not waiting for the problem to “figure itself out” is the correct move, even if your child is 7 years old. Contact us if it seems like your child needs orthodontic care. Our Easton team of orthodontists are here to help at all times. Schedule an initial exam if anything happens. Here at CT Braces, we want to make sure that your child’s smile is more confident as we help straighten their teeth.

Two-Phase Treatment

Our two-phase treatment, in three simple easy steps, can help your child have a healthier, beautiful smile.

  1. Phase one will involve your Easton orthodontist in recommending treatment for any growth, tooth crowding, or spacing issues. From this your alignment of your child’s permanent teeth will be able to be achieved.
  2. After this a resting period will occur. During which your child’s permanent teeth will be able to grow naturally. There will be no need for a retainer due to this.
  3. Phase two will involve assigning your child a full set of upper and lower braces by our Easton orthodontic professionals. This will help with the process of aligning their permanent teeth.

Whether you have been referred to us or are interested in learning more, contact our Easton office today and we will inform you on all you need to know about our orthodontic practice.

Adult Orthodontics

‘One in five orthodontic patients are over 21 years of age,’ as said by The American Association of Orthodontists. At CT Braces, we always want our Easton patients to not only leave satisfied with their new stunning and straight teeth, but to also gain confidence in their smiles as well.

Adult’s jaws, compared to children’s, are harder, leading to higher risk of gum or bone loss, worn or missing teeth, or have suffered incomplete orthodontic treatment as a child or teen.


Between our Easton adults and children, our Easton team at CT Braces can tell the difference of problems between the two. Our goal is to help you at all times, so contact our Easton orthodontic practice to begin the process by setting up an initial exam to get more information.

Easton Surgical Orthodontics (Orthognathic Surgery)

Surgical orthodontics, also frequently called orthognathic surgery, is used to treat issues with:
·         jaw bone formation
·         bad bites
·         malocclusion – misaligned teeth.

The best option for if a jaw is not correctly aligned is surgical orthodontics. Orthodontic braces are then used to move the teeth into their new, more correct positions. The surgery will take place in a hospital with our Easton orthodontist working alongside an oral and maxillofacial surgeon.

After this our Easton orthodontic professionals recommend a resting period of at least two to four weeks after the several hour process of orthodontic surgery. It is important to keep note of the possibility of wearing braces during this process. This can happen for six to twelve months. After all of this, a retainer will then need to be worn to help your permanent teeth adjust in their new placement. This orthognathic surgery (otherwise known as surgical orthodontics) is very successful and has been a major medical procedure for years. Feel free to contact us, our Easton orthodontic practice is always here to discuss all of your options together. Our main concern is that you stay completely comfortable throughout all of our orthodontic treatments.
