Every Smile Starts with a Consultation

Come in and meet our trusted team of professionals! Get to know us when you attend your first orthodontic consolation in Southbury CT. You’ll get to hear more about the practice of orthodontics, have a completed exam and find out what treatment will be the most effective for you. During your first meeting with our team, we will:

  • 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

Once we’ve completed your consultation at our Southbury office, you can then choose to schedule your first appointment with your orthodontist. We will help you complete your paperwork and schedule a second appointment for x-rays. Along the way, one of our Southbury orthodontic assistants will help you get to know and place your orthodontic appliance. Your second appointment will last around 2 hours. Our Southbury Orthodontic team always makes sure that you will feel comfortable and at ease during your time at our office, leaving you completely satisfied with the end results.

Southbury Treatment Options

Child & Teenage Orthodontics & Teeth Straightening

Common Orthodontic issues are usually: crowding, widely spaced teeth, jaw growth problems, protruding teeth, or bad bites for children. These issues are often inherited or a result of injury. They can also be formed by thumb-sucking habits or early or late tooth loss. On the other hand, adult orthodontic problems won’t get better with age and may need orthodontic surgery. Children’s Orthodontic issues may correct on their own, but their jaws will harden by adulthood, so treatment as soon as possible is the best way to make sure they have a perfect smile by adulthood!

To prevent any problems in adulthood, your child can receive orthodontic treatment at our Southbury office, preventing the need for any orthodontic surgery later on in life. If your child is 7 years old and appears to need orthodontic care, don’t wait for the problem to “figure itself out". Contact our Southbury orthodontic office to schedule an initial exam. CT Braces is happy to help straighten your child’s teeth and help them achieve a better, more confident smile.

Two-Phase Treatment

To help your child have a beautiful, healthy smile you can use our Two-Phase treatment that consists of three steps.

  1. During phase one, your Southbury Orthodontist will help recommend treatment for any jaw growth, tooth crowding or spacing issues. This will help perfectly align your child’s permanent teeth.
  2. Then, during a resting period, your child’s permanent teeth can naturally grow into place without the use of a retainer.
  3. In Phase Two, our Orthodontic professionals will provide your child with a full set of upper and lower braces to help align any permanent teeth.

Southbury Adult Orthodontics

Here at CT Braces of Newtown, we will always aim to provide you with a bright, straight smile that you’ve always dreamed of.Most orthodontic patients are over 21, in fact, according to the American Association of Orthodontists, one in five are. At CT Braces of Southbury, we want to make you proud to smile and show off your perfect, straight teeth, making your feel confident every day.

Southbury 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 not correctly aligned, surgical orthodontics is used first, then orthodontic braces will be used to move the teeth into their new, correct positions. Your Southbury orthodontist at CT Braces will work with an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, who will perform your surgery in a hospital.

This orthodontic surgery will take a few hours to complete, and we insist that you have a rest period of at least two to four weeks. After your surgery, you may need to be fitted for braces that should be worn for six to twelve months, and then a retainer afterwards to ensure the placement of your teeth. Surgical orthodontics (otherwise known as orthognathic surgery) is a major medical procedure that has been successfully performed for years. We always want to make sure that you are comfortable with our orthodontic treatments, so please get in touch with our professionals at our Southbury orthodontic practice to talk with you about your options.
