During your first orthodontic consultation here in South Salem you will meet your friendly team and learn more about the practice of orthodontics. You will undergo a complete exam which will help us determine what treatment is best for you. During your initial meeting with us we will:

  • Review your dental and medical history

  • Work with you to create a customized treatment plan
  • Discuss financial information, insurance options, and payment plans

After your initial consultation you can schedule your first appointment with your orthodontist, complete your paperwork, and schedule a second appointment for x-rays. While with us here CT Braces one of our orthodontic assistants will help you get familiar with and place your orthodontic appliance. Your second appointment will likely last about 2 hours, and you can expect our entire South Salem team to help put you at ease during your time with us.

South Salem Orthodontic Treatment Options

Child & Teenage Orthodontics & Teeth Straightening

Common orthodontic issues can be: crowding, widely spaced teeth, jaw growth problems, protruding teeth, or bad bites in children which are typically inherited or a result of an injury. Bad bites can also form due to thumb-sucking or early or late tooth loss. In adults, these issues won't get better with age and orthodontic surgery may be required. In children these issues may correct themselves as they grow, though their jaws will harden by adulthood.

We are here to properly prevent any orthodontic issues that may occur from childhood into adulthood. Here at our South Salem office we can help your child perfect their smile leaving them more confident. If your child is 7 years or older and you notice any issues it is better to bring them in for a consultation rather than try to wait it out. Contact our friendly staff today to schedule an initial appointment and get started on your child’s bright, beautiful smile.

Two-Phase Orthodontic Treatment

Our Two-Phase treatment plan, which consists of three steps will have your child smiling confidently in no time.

  • During Phase One your experienced South Salem Orthodontist will recommend treatment for any jaw growth, tooth crowding, or spacing issues. This initial treatment plan will help your child's permanent teeth get on the right track.
  • After a resting period your child’s adult teeth will naturally grow into place without the need for a retainer.
  • In Phase Two our orthodontists will provide your child with a full set of upper and lower braces to continue to help align their teeth.
  • For those who wish to learn more about our treatments or practice contact us today and let us know how we can further assist you.

South Salem Adult Orthodontics

According to the American Association of Orthodontics, one in five orthodontic patients are over the age of 21. Here at CT Braces in South Salem we are ready to help get you a smile that you are proud of. Adult orthodontics comes with more risks due to the fact that adult jaws are harder. In some cases there is gum or bone loss, worn or missing teeth, or incomplete orthodontic treatment at a younger age.

CT Braces of South Salem understands that our adult patients will have different problems and needs than our younger patients, and we have the experience to treat whatever your case may be. To begin your journey with us give our South Salem office a call today to learn more about orthodontic care and schedule an initial appointment.

South Salem Surgical Orthodontics (Orthognathic Surgery)

Surgical orthodontics, also referred to as orthognathic surgery, will help treat issues in:
                         jaw bone formation
                         bad bites
                         malocclusion – misaligned teeth.

When a jaw is incorrectly aligned surgical orthodontics may be used first, followed by orthodontic braces to move the teeth into their correct positions. Your South Salem orthodontist at CT Braces will team up with an oral and maxillofacial surgeon who will then perform your surgery in a hospital.

You can expect your orthodontic surgery to take several hours from start to finish, we then recommend a rest period of two to four weeks to allow your body to properly heal and recover. After the surgery some patients are in need of braces that are to be worn for six to twelve months followed by a retainer, which helps properly place your teeth. Surgical orthodontics is considered a major medical procedure that has been successfully performed for years. We understand some patients find themselves anxious before surgery, but we are here to put you at ease. Call our South Salem office today to discuss your orthodontic treatment options.
