Every Smile Starts with a Consultation

Come in for your first orthodontic consultation in Middlebury, CT. You will meet our staff, learn how orthodontics can help you and have a complete exam to determine which treatment will work best for you. During your consultation, we will:

  • Review your dental and medical history
  • Perform a thorough 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 we are done with your examination, we will make sure your first orthodontist appointment is scheduled, finish all paperwork, and select a time for an X-ray appointment. During this process, a Middlebury orthodontist assistant will explain the rest of the process. The following appointment will take approximately 2 hours. The staff at our Middlebury office will make sure you are relaxed and informed along the way.  

Scheduling Orthodontic Appointments

Once you have received your new orthodontic fitting, we want to make sure it is functioning perfectly. We encourage our patients to visit every 4-8 weeks. We do our best to ensure even the busiest Middlebury patients can fit conveniently into the schedule.

We know that life isn’t always predictable, so we’ll help you with any rescheduling as best we can. Just inform our office if If, for some reason, you cannot attend your scheduled appointment, we request you call our Middlebury office, and we will do our best to reschedule you.

Middlebury Treatment Options

Child & Teenage Orthodontics & Teeth Straightening

Many orthodontic problems commonly occur, such as; teeth spaced too wide, teeth that stick out, jaw growth issues, underbites, and overbites in children. Bad bites in children can be caused by thumb-sucking and tooth loss that occurs too early or too late in life. Orthodontic problems in children may be corrected with age, but they also can harden as the child becomes an adult. Adult orthodontic issues will not go away on their own and may require orthodontic surgery.

Children can receive treatment at our Middlebury office to prevent orthodontic intervention in adulthood. Children who are seven years old and seem to need an orthodontic procedure should be seen right away. The problem will not work itself out. Please call our Middlebury office to set up an initial exam appointment. Ct Braces will correct your child’s crooked teeth and set them up to have a straight and perfect smile.

Two-Phase Treatment

CT Braces offers a Two-Phase treatment to your child’s healthy smile in Middlebury, CT.

  1. To align your child’s teeth properly, a Middlebury Orthodontist will design a plan for the treatment depending on tooth crowding, spacing issues, or jaw growth.
  2. During the first phase, the Middlebury orthodontics team will design a recommended treatment for your child’s teeth that addresses any crowding of the teeth, jaw growth, and spacing issues. This will make sure your child’s adult teeth will be aligned correctly once they grow into place. With this treatment, your child will not need a retainer.
  3. During Phase Two, our Orthodontic team will give your child braces for the upper and lower rows to align permanent teeth.

If you would like more information or have been referred to our Middlebury office, please call us to set up a consultation.

Middlebury Adult Orthodontics

Most of our Middlebury, CT orthodontic patients are over 21 years of age. The American Association of Orthodontists claims 1 in 5 patients is over 21. Our goal at CT Braces of Middlebury is to give you the straight and shiny smile you are proud of.

Adult and Child orthodontics differ. Adult’s jaws are more firm, leading to missing or deteriorated teeth and a high risk of bone or gum loss. We also often find incomplete orthodontic treatment from the patient’s childhood or adolescence.

At CT Braces of Middlebury, CT, we know that children and adults have different orthodontic needs. We can help you- all you must do is call our Middlebury office for more information. We will promptly set up an initial exam.

Middlebury, CT Invisalign® Options

These aligners will ensure a confident, straight, healthy smile without more permanent and uncomfortable braces. With these aligners, you can drink, brush, eat, and floss during the treatment. You will need new aligners every two weeks that will slowly reposition your teeth.

On average, your entire treatment may take between nine to fifteen months, and you will need to visit your Middlebury orthodontist every six weeks to recommend visiting your Middlebury CT Braces once every six weeks to ensure the treatment is progressing correctly.
