Every Smile Starts with a Consultation
Take the first step towards a healthier smile by calling CT Braces in Wilton to learn more about the process and procedures of orthodontics. Upon doing so, you will set up a consultation in Wilton. During this initial consultation, you will undergo an exam to determine a specific and custom plan. We will also go over background information on treatments, such as:
- Dental and medical history
- A specific treatment plan based on an oral exam with x-rays
- An overall plan for treatment
- Financial information, insurance options, and payment plans
After Your Initial Orthodontic Consultation
After your first consultation, we can schedule your first appointment with a Wilton orthodontist to begin the treatment process. We will complete all paperwork and then schedule an appointment for a second set of x-rays. A specialized Wilton orthodontic assistant will guide you through the process and will ensure your better understanding of all orthodontic appliances. The second appointment lasts approximately 2 hours, but we will make your comfort in our Wilton office the first concern!
Scheduling Orthodontic Appointments
We recommend that you visit the Wilton office every four to eight weeks in order to check the progress of your teeth with the schedule and treatment plan. In a circumstance under which you are extremely busy with work or life responsibilities, we will work with you to make this an easy and convenient process.
Because life can be unpredictable, we understand the need to reschedule some appointments. In order to do so, just call our convenient and accessible Wilton office. We will work hands on with you and make your schedule a priority in order to get you into the Wilton office for the appointment.

Wilton Orthodontic Treatment Options
Child & Teenage Orthodontics & Teeth Straightening
Crowding, widely spaced teeth, jaw growth problems, protruding teeth, or bad bites for younger patients are common issues that we see as a result of genetics or direct contact injuries. Thumb-sucking habits can also aid in the creation of orthodontic issues. While some of these issues can be self-correcting with time, it is important to note that adult orthodontic problems require the attention of treatment and often require treatment via orthodontic surgery.
To help prevent problems from occurring later in adulthood, your child can receive simple orthodontic treatment straight from our Wilton office. This easy step can often prevent the later need for orthodontic surgery in adulthood. If your child is 7 years old and displays signs of orthodontic trouble, don’t wait! Call us in our Wilton office today and schedule a consultation to see which treatment is best! CT Braces will be happy to help your child’s teeth be corrected and lead to a more confident smile!
Two-Phase Orthodontic Treatment
Our two-phase treatment plan helps easily make process on your smile in a dual-phase treatment consisting of 3 steps.
- During phase one, your Wilton orthodontist will remedy problems such as jaw growth, tooth crowding, or spacing problems. This will help prepare the mouth for correctly aligned permanent teeth.
- After this comes the resting period. During this time, your child’s permanent teeth will naturally grow in.
- In the second phase, our Wilton orthodontists will assemble a full set of upper and lower braces that position and align permanent teeth after they have grown in.
For more details about these practices and procedures, call our Wilton office and receive further details!
Wilton Adult Orthodontics
Many orthodontic patients are in their adulthood. According to the American Association of Orthodontics, nearly 1 in every 5 orthodontic patients is above 21 years old. At Ct Braces in Wilton, we can help you achieve a healthy smile that you will be proud of for years!
Adult orthodontic procedures vary from those for children. Because the adult jaw is hardened, there is an increased risk of gum or bone loss, worn or missing teeth, and existing orthodontic treatment left incomplete from childhood or teen years.
CT Braces of Wilton can handle your adult orthodontic treatment to best suit you. Our caring team will provide everything for your adult orthodontic needs. In order to learn more about this treatment, call our Wilton office to set up an initial exam and consultation with our Wilton team.
Wilton Surgical Orthodontics (Orthognathic Surgery)
Surgical orthodontics, sometimes called orthognathic surgery, can help you treat orthodontic problems such as:
· jaw bone formation
· bad bites
· malocclusion – misaligned teeth.
For misaligned jaws, surgical treatment is often used as a first step towards remedying. After this, braces will commonly be used in order to move the teeth into their positions your Wilton orthodontist will be able to work directly with an oral surgeon who can perform necessary surgery in a hospital safely and effectively.
Surgery for orthodontic treatment can take up to several hours. We urge that you have a resting period after this surgery for two to four weeks. After this, you may need to be fitted for an appliance or orthodontic device such as braces. Braces tend to be on a patient for about six to twelve weeks in order to properly move permanent teeth into position. Surgical orthodontics is a major medical procedure that has been performed successfully on patients for years. At CT Braces of Wilton, we will help work with you to make this as comfortable of an experience as possible.
