Every Smile Starts with a Consultation
When you come to your first consultation with CT Braces in North Haven, you’ll learn more about the practice of orthodontics, receive an exam and find out which treatment plan suits you best. During your meeting, we’ll go over:
- 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
After you’ve had your initial consultation, we’ll figure out the best time to schedule your first orthodontic appointment. We’ll also help you fill out paperwork as well as schedule a second appointment that includes x-rays. During the next few appointments, your North Haven orthodontic assistant will help you understand and place your new orthodontic appliance. Our North Haven Orthodontic team will help you feel comfortable and secure during your appointments. The second appointment will take around 2 hours until we’re finished.
Scheduling Orthodontic Appointments
In order to make sure your new orthodontic piece fits and there are no issues, we hope that you will visit our orthodontic office every four to eight weeks. We understand that you will need to schedule appointments around your personal and work life, so we do everything that we can to accommodate you.
We know that some events may just come up and it can make it hard for our North Haven patients come into the office. When you have time to figure out your schedule, let us know and we’ll reach out to you and our North Haven coordinator will assist you.

North Haven Orthodontic Treatment Options
Child & Teenage Orthodontics & Teeth Straightening
A few common Orthodontic issues can consist of crowding widely spaced teeth, jaw growth problems, protruding teeth or bad bites for children. They can often be caused by an injury, inherited, formed by thumb-sucking habits or even early or late tooth loss. At the point of adulthood, adult orthodontic problems simply won’t get better with age, they’ll need orthodontic surgery to be fixed.
Children’s Orthodontic problems can get better with age, but by the time they become an adult, their jaw will harden. It’s better to start early than to try and correct problems later on in life.
To prevent problems from occurring in adulthood, children can find Orthodontic treatment at our North Haven office. For children that are 7 years old and may need orthodontic care, it’s always better to be safe than sorry. These small “issues” may present to be larger issues later on in life. To schedule an initial exam, contact our North Haven office and CT Braces will be happy to help your child start on the path to a healthier, straighter smile.
Two-Phase Orthodontic Treatment
To help your child achieve a healthy, beautiful smile, our Two-Phase treatment only consists of three easy steps:
- Phase one consists of having your North Haven Orthodontist recommend a treatment for issues such as jaw growth, tooth crowding or spacing issues. By using this treatment, it’s more likely that your child’s permanent teeth will be properly aligned when they grow in.
- After receiving treatment, we recommend that your child has a rest period. This is when their permanent teeth will grow into place without the help of a retainer.
- Once the rest period has ended, your child will go into the second phase. In this phase, they will be given a full set of upper and lower braces to help adjust their permanent teeth.

North Haven Adult Orthodontics
According to the American Association of Orthodontists, one in five orthodontic patients are older than 21. Here at CT Braces of North Haven, we want to make you proud of your new smile.
Children’s Orthodontics and Adult Orthodontics are not the same. As we grow older, our jaws will harden and can lead to more problems with gum or bone loss, worn or missing teeth or simply incomplete orthodontic treatments.
Here at CT Braces of North Haven, we know that adults have more permanent problems compared to that of a child, but we can assist you with these orthodontic issues. To get started with our services, please reach out to our North Haven Orthodontic practice to set up your first consultation and exam.
North Haven Surgical Orthodontics (Orthognathic Surgery)
Surgical orthodontics, also known as orthognathic surgery, is used to treat severe issues in:
- Jaw bone formation
- Bad bites
- Malocclusion – misaligned teeth.
When your jaw is not properly aligned, you must first have surgical orthodontics to fix these issues, then orthodontic braces must be applied to move your teeth into the correct positions. When you come to our North Haven office, your Orthodontist will work alongside an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, who will take on the procedure at a hospital.
On average, the orthodontic procedure will take a few hours to complete and should be followed by at least two to four weeks of rest. After your procedure, you will need to be fitted for braces that will be worn for a duration of six to twelve months, following a retainer to enforce the placement of your teeth. This type of medical procedure called surgical orthodontics (or known as orthognathic surgery) has been performed for years with great success. If you would like to discuss your options today, get in touch with our North Haven office.
North Haven, CT Invisalign® Options
North Haven CT Braces is a trusted, certified provider of Invisalign®, an invisible, removable aligner that can be a replacement for braces. By using a removable aligner you can avoid the disadvantages of braces and still be able to freely eat, rink, brush and floss during your treatment. Because these trays will be slowly moving your teeth into the desired position, you will need to replace them every two weeks to ensure their effectiveness.
The entire process of Invisalign® will take around nine to fifteen months until completion. We recommend that you come to our North Haven office every six weeks to make sure that your treatment is going according to our plan. If you would like more information about Invisalign®, feel free to reach out to us today.
