Every Smile Starts with a Consultation

During your initial visit to our North Branford office, you’ll meet our entire staff and get comfortable with your course of treatment. We are here to answer any questions and inform you about the details of orthodontics. You will leave your consultation confident with the correct information and treatment following a thorough exam. During this first visit, you can expect:

  • 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

Following your consultation, our North Branford staff members can assist you in scheduling your first appointment to see your orthodontist, help fill out any required paperwork, schedule a second appointment for your x-rays, and inform you about and place any orthodontic devices. For most patients, their second appointment lasts about 2 hours; during this time, we want to keep you as comfortable as possible, and our North Branford Orthodontic team will do everything they can to do so.

Scheduling Orthodontic Appointments

We want you to have a comfortable experience with us. To keep that promise, we urge our patients to visit our North Branford office every four to eight weeks, which will allow us to maintain a properly working orthodontic piece. We understand your life can get a little hectic, which is why we offer flexible hours and times to ensure your orthodontist sees you at the right time.

If you find yourself unable to keep your appointment, don’t hesitate to call and reschedule. We understand that life can be unpredictable, and our North Branford team is here to accommodate you and get you the proper treatment at a convenient time.

North Branford Orthodontic Treatment Options

Child & Teenage Orthodontics & Teeth Straightening

Some common Orthodontic issues that can arise are overcrowding, spacing between teeth, complications of jaw growth, teeth sticking out, and bad bites in kids. Typically these are either genetic or due to injury. These can also be a result of thumb-sucking and losing teeth early or late. Most orthodontic complications that kids form can correct themselves before their jaws harden later in life. In adults, these issues usually don’t correct themselves with time, leading to orthodontic surgery.

Adulthood issues can be prevented if your child is seen in time; here at our North Branford office, we will help fix any current problems and set up a plan to correct any future ones. When kids reach seven years of age, we advise you to set up an appointment instead of trying to “wait out” any issues. We encourage you to contact our North Branford orthodontic office and schedule an appointment. Our main goal at CT Braces is to provide top orthodontic service so your child’s smile can continue to beam!

Two-Phase Orthodontic Treatment

TOur North Branford orthodontists recommend a Two-Phase treatment, which consists of three steps to get your child smiling brightly and confidently.

  1. Beginning with Phase One, your North Branford team at CT Braces will provide a treatment plan for your child; they will go over any jaw growth, tooth crowding, or spacing issues. By taking this first step, it will allow your child’s permanent teeth to align correctly.
  2. Next, a resting period will allow your child’s permanent teeth to move into position with the help of a retainer.
  3. During Phase Two, your child will be provided with a set of upper and lower braces to aid in their alignment.

Our orthodontists here at our North Branford office are here to assist you in any way necessary. We welcome any questions and referrals and are here to start your child’s orthodontics treatment with ease.

North Branford Adult Orthodontics

According to the American Association of Orthodontists, nearly 20% of orthodontic patients are 21 years or older. Our top professionals at our North Branford CT Braces office can get your smile shining bright no matter your age!

As an adult in need of orthodontic treatment, we lookout for other complications that don’t typically arise with children; gum and bone loss and insufficient orthodontic procedures as a child or young adult can lead to these issues later in life.

Our orthodontists at CT Braces in North Branford understand the different issues during adult and childhood treatment. Regardless of your age or complication, we are here to help get you smiling again. Call us today at our North Branford office for more information and to set up a complete exam.
