Every Smile Starts with a Consultation
Begin your Orthodontic journey, by visiting our Woodbridge office and receiving a free orthodontic consultation. At this time you’ll get acquainted with our professional team and learn about orthodontics. During your initial meeting, we'll:
- 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 you complete your consultation we will help you schedule your first appointment with your orthodontist. This is when you will be helped to complete paperwork, concerning your orthodontic needs. A second appointment will be needed to schedule for x-rays. You can count on our Woodbridge team to help you feel comfortable during your second appointment which generally lasts around 2 hours. If at any point you have questions about your new orthodontic appliance, just ask one of our Woodbridge assistants who are always happy to help you.

Woodbridge Orthodontic Treatment Options
Child & Teenage Orthodontics & Teeth Straightening
There are various orthodontic problems that might affect children and teens, these are often a result of injuries or genetics in children, but can be caused by late tooth loss, or thumbsucking habits, these issues include: crowding, widely spaced teeth, jaw growth problems, protruding teeth, or bad bites. While it is sometimes the case that children’s orthodontic issues may correct on their own, they often do not. It is important to fix orthodontic issues early, as it is a fact that jaws harden by adulthood. Adult orthodontic problems won’t get better with age and many can require orthodontic surgery.
Be proactive for your child, and bring them into our Woodbridge office. Fixing an orthodontic problem for them now can spare them from more complicated orthodontic issues upon reaching adulthood. If your child is seven or older it is not a good idea for you to wait to see if their problem goes away on its own. Instead, talk to our Woodbridge orthodontic office to schedule your initial exam. CT Braces is ready to remedy any orthodontic issues your child might have. We want your child to feel confident about their smile.
Two-Phase Orthodontic Treatment
It is important to us that your child’s smile is both beautiful and healthy, that is why we created our Two-stage, three step program to make it possible.
- Phase one is about making sure your child's permanent teeth grow in properly aligned. This phase involves meeting with your Woodbridge Orthodontist, so they can recommend a treatment for any jaw growth, tooth crowding or spacing issues.
- After this, your child’s permanent teeth can naturally grow into place without the use of a retainer, during a resting period.
- In Phase Two, our Orthodontic professionals will fit your child with a full set of upper and lower braces that will help with the alignment any permanent teeth.

Woodbridge Surgical Orthodontics (Orthognathic Surgery)
Surgical orthodontics, also known as orthognathic surgery, is used to treat severe issues in:
- jaw bone formation
- bad bites
- malocclusion – misaligned teeth.
Surgical orthodontics is the first step towards properly aligning your teeth. Next orthodontic braces are used, so that your teeth stay in the proper positions. CT Braces Woodbridge Orthodontist works with an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, who will perform your surgery in a hospital.
Orthodontic surgery takes several hours to complete. Following your surgery we insist that you have a rest period of at least two to four weeks, for recovery. Once your resting period ends, you will be fitted for braces. Typically you will wear your braces for for six to twelve months, then after that, a retainer to ensure the placement of your teeth. Surgical orthodontics (otherwise known as orthognathic surgery) is a major medical procedure which is commonly performed and has been successfully practiced for many years. We’re glad you chose to consider CT Braces in Woodbridge for your orthodontic treatments, because we know that we are unrivaled when it comes to your comfort. For more information, call our office.
