Every Smile Starts with a Consultation

When you come in for your first orthodontic consultation here in Waccabuc you will meet your team and learn more about the practice of orthodontics. You will complete an exam in order for us to determine your course of treatment. During this initial consultation 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 

After you complete your consultation you can schedule your first appointment with your orthodontist, complete any necessary paperwork, and schedule a second appointment for your x-rays. During your time with us one of our friendly Waccabuc orthodontic assistants will teach you all about your new orthodontic appliance and show you how to place it. Your second appointment will last around 2 hours and our entire staff is here to help calm any nerves that you may have.

Waccabuc 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 which in children are often inherited or a result of injury. They can also be formed by thumb-sucking or early or late tooth loss. Children’s orthodontic issues may correct themselves, though their jaws will harden by adulthood. Adult orthodontic problems won’t get better with age which may result in surgery.

In order to help prevent any orthodontic issues in adulthood it is best to correct them at an early age. If your child is 7 years or older we recommend making an initial consultation to go over any problems they may be experiencing. The earlier your child is seen the better their outcome will be. Everyone at our Waccabuc office is here to put your child at ease and get them smiling confidently.

Two-Phase Orthodontic Treatment

We recommend our Two-Phase treatment plan, which consists of three steps, to help get your child’s smile corrected.

  • The first phase starts off with our Waccabuc Orthodontists recommending treatment for your child's jaw growth, overcrowding or spacing issues. By doing so your child’s adult teeth will be aligned correctly.
  • Your child’s permanent teeth will then naturally grow into position during a resting period, without the need of a retainer.
  • Phase Two consists of our orthodontist placing full upper and lower braces on the teeth to contest any alignment issues to help with permanent teeth in the future.
  • For those looking for further information please call our qualified team members at our Waccabuc office and let us assist you.

Waccabuc Adult Orthodontics

Most patients who receive orthodontic care are over the age of 21, and here at CT Braces in Waccabuc we are ready to give you a smile that you can be proud to show off. Adult orthodontics differ from childrens in the fact that their jaws are harder, which may cause some issues. There is a higher risk of gum or bone loss, worn or missing teeth, or incomplete orthodontic treatment as a child or teen.

CT Braces of Waccabuc understands that adults and children have a variety of different issues when it comes to orthodontic needs. We we assure you that our staff is here to make the process as easy as possible. Call us today to schedule a consultation or to learn more about your specific needs.

Waccabuc 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.

Here at CT Braces in Waccabuc we will first use orthodontic surgery to align jaws when necessary, we will then provide you with orthodontic braces to help move teeth into their correct position. Our orthodontics will work with an oral and maxillofacial surgeon to perform your surgery in a hospital.

Your orthodontic surgery will take several hour to complete, and afterwards we recommend you rest for two to four weeks. Some patients are fitted for braces after surgery that should be worn for six to twelve months, then they should use a retainer to help maintain the placement of their teeth. Orthodontic surgery is considered a major medical procedure that we are extremely experienced with, but we understand that you may have questions and we are here to help to calm any nerves or anxiety you may have. Call our Waccabuc office today to discuss your particular needs.
