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. Your North Haven orthodontic assistant will help you understand and place your new orthodontic appliance during the following few appointments. 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

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 to accommodate you.

We know that some events may just come up, and it can make it hard for our North Haven patients to 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.

Common Orthodontic Issues

At CT Braces of North Haven, we can help you with a variety of orthodontic issues, including:

  • Crowding of teeth
  • Missing lateral incisors
  • Spacing of teeth
  • Phase-one: early orthodontic issues
  • Open bite: front teeth don’t touch
  • Deep overbite: lower front teeth bite into palate
  • Underbite: lower front teeth in front of upper teeth
  • Overjet: protruding front teeth

North Haven Orthodontic Treatment Options

Child & Teenage Orthodontics & Teeth Straightening

Common orthodontic issues can include 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 won’t get better with age, and they’ll need orthodontic surgery to be fixed.

Children’s Orthodontic problems can get better with age, but their jaw will harden by the time they become an adult. 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 seven-year-old children who may need orthodontic care, it’s always better to be safe than sorry. These small “issues” may present to be more significant 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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Once the rest period has ended, your child will go into the second phase. In this phase, they will be given a complete 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 is 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 lead to more gum or bone loss problems, 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. Please reach out to our North Haven Orthodontic practice to get started with our services to set up your first consultation and exam.

 

North Haven, CT Invisalign® Options

North Haven CT Braces is a trusted, certified provider of Invisalign®, an invisible, removable aligner that can replace braces. By using a removable aligner, you can avoid the disadvantages of braces and still be able to freely eat, drink, brush, and floss during your treatment. Because these trays will slowly move 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 ensure that your treatment goes according to our plan. If you would like more information about Invisalign®, feel free to reach out to us today.

Orthodontic Retention Care in New Haven, CT

You’ve worked hard for your beautiful smile; keep it that way!
Your braces are finally being removed here at our New Haven clinic, and you can now enjoy that long-awaited beautiful, straight smile.  However, there is still one more step to your orthodontic journey to keep that smile looking so perfect.  You will need to wear a retainer to stabilize and preserve your orthodontic results—retainer control or limit changes to tooth position.  Following braces, they are used primarily to keep your teeth in proper alignment as your gums, bone, and muscle become adjusted to the new positioning of your teeth.

Here at CT Braces, we want our New Haven patients to know that there are fixed and removable custom-made retainers with removable retainers fitting over the arch of your teeth and easily removed to eat or to brush.  Fixed retainers are typically worn for life, making them a good choice if you don’t want to worry about them all the time, but they require floss threaders when flossing to pass through the small spaces between your teeth and retainer.

To learn more about orthodontic retention, contact one of our CT Braces New Haven team today.
