Every Smile Starts with a Consultation
During your first orthodontic consultation with CT Braces of Fairfield, you can expect to meet our team to discuss orthodontics, have an initial exam, and discover what treatment options are the best for you. At your consultation, 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
Once your consultation is complete, we’ll help you schedule your first appointment with an orthodontist to complete all paperwork, and set up a second appointment for x-rays. One of our Fairfield orthodontic assistants will then place your orthodontic appliance and this appointment will generally take 2 hours. Our Fairfield team will make sure you are comfortable and understand the process.
Scheduling Orthodontic Appointments
To keep up to date with your treatment plan, we insist that you visit your orthodontist every four to six weeks. Our Fairfield orthodontic office will help you schedule all of your appointments and make them convenient for your existing schedule.
Now, we understand how hectic life can be and in the event that you cannot attend one of your appointments or you’re running late, we’ll help you out. When you are ready to schedule, contact us and our scheduling coordinator at our Fairfield office will assist you.

Fairfield Orthodontic Treatment Options
Child & Teenage Orthodontics & Teeth Straightening
Many of us will experience orthodontic issues such as crowding, spacing, jaw growth problems, protruding teeth or bad bites. For children, these type of problems can be inherited, caused by injury, due to early or late tooth loss, or simply by thumb-sucking. Adult orthodontic procedures will often take longer and may need orthodontic surgery compared to that of a child’s. Children will have softer jaws until they reach adulthood, making them less likely candidates for major surgery.
If you are seeking treatment for your child in Fairfield, our offices are open and ready to help your child prevent the need for orthodontic attention later on in life. If your child is 7 years old and needs orthodontic care, or we’ve been recommended by your family dentist, our Fairfield orthodontic office can help set up an initial exam. We want to help your child achieve a straighter, beautiful smile.
Two-Phase Orthodontic Treatment
To help your child develop a healthy, beautiful smile they will undergo our Two-Phase treatment that includes a three-step process.
- In Phase One, our Fairfield orthodontist will treat you for any jaw growth, tooth crowding or spacing issues your child is facing. This will help encourage proper alignment for your permanent teeth.
- After phase one, there is a need for a resting period. During this time, your child’s permanent teeth will be able to grow without the use of a retainer.
- In Phase Two, your orthodontic professional will size you for upper and lower braces that will help any remaining alignment issues.
If you think that your child will benefit from our treatments or you’ve been recommended to our practice, please reach out to our Fairfield office today.

Fairfield Surgical Orthodontics (Orthognathic Surgery)
Surgical orthodontics, also termed as orthognathic surgery, is used to treat issues such as:
- Jaw bone formation
- Bad bites
- Malocclusion – misaligned teeth
Without proper alignment, your jaw will need to go through surgical orthodontics and then orthodontic braces to help move your teeth into the correct position. Your Fairfield orthodontist at CT Braces will need to work alongside an oral and maxillofacial surgeon who will help perform your surgery in the hospital.
The procedure will take several hours, and we believe that a two to four week rest period will help with recovery. You will also need to wear braces for six to twelve months and a retainer to maintain your new placement. Surgical orthodontics (orthognathic surgery) is a major medical procedure, so we will always make you feel comfortable and confident about your individual case. Please contact our Fairfield orthodontic office if you need more information.
