Woodbury Treatment Options
Child & Teenage Orthodontics & Teeth Straightening
Common Orthodontic issues usually consists of: crowding, widely spaced teeth, jaw growth problems, protruding teeth, or bad over bites for children. These issues are often inherited or a result from 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 the best orthodontic treatment at our Woodbury 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 Woodbury orthodontic office right away, and we will help you to schedule an initial exam. CT Braces is happy to help straighten your child’s teeth and to help them achieve a better, more confident smile.
To help your child have a beautiful, healthy smile you can use our Two-Phase treatment that consists of three steps.
- During phase one, your Woodbury Orthodontist will help recommend treatment for any jaw growth, tooth crowding or spacing issues. This will help perfectly align your child’s permanent teeth.
- Then, during a resting period, your child’s permanent teeth can naturally grow into place without the use of a retainer.
- 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.

Woodbury 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 Woodbury 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 several 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 your teeth will remain in the place that they should be in. 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 Woodbury orthodontic practice to talk with you about your options. We will also answer any of the questions you might have.
