braces2At our practice, we strive to provide all of our patients with the smiles they desire. Cosmetic dentist Edward Shukovsky, DMD and his staff understand that the idea of orthodontics can seem daunting for some people, but the benefits are numerous. At our restorative and cosmetic dentistry practice, we aim to show each of our patients who have misaligned teeth that a short time spent wearing dental braces will have an enormously beneficial impact on their lives and dental health.

Orthodontics Candidates

Almost anyone can be a candidate for orthodontics. At Dr. Shukovsky’s practice, we have helped a wide range of patients improve their smiles, as there are very few age restrictions when it comes to orthodontic treatment. Children as young as six years old all the way up to the elderly are potential candidates for orthodontics. If you suffer from an incorrect bite pattern as a result of a misaligned jaw, or you have crooked or impacted teeth, you may benefit from orthodontic care, including Invisalign® treatment. A variety of dental conditions can be corrected with orthodontics at our practice. Whether you are looking to properly align your jaw and bite pattern, or are interested in a complete smile makeover, Dr. Shukovsky and his staff can help.

Orthodontics Procedure

Orthodontics covers a multitude of dental procedures intended to treat or correct dental alignment. At the restorative and cosmetic dentistry practice of Dr. Shukovsky, we are pleased to offer an array of orthodontics options to our patients. For most individuals, dental braces will be the solution to their orthodontic issues. While there are a number of different options when it comes to choosing braces, they all serve to achieve the same goal. Patients will typically be required to wear braces for an average of about six months to eighteen months. After the treatment is complete, a retainer must be worn to ensure the teeth do not revert to their original position.

When it comes to choosing dental braces, the decision can be made based on aesthetics, price, and the severity of the orthodontic issue. Patients with moderate to severe misalignment may opt for standard metal or ceramic braces. Patients more concerned with aesthetics have options as well. Clear braces and the revolutionary, removable invisible braces, Invisalign®, are available for our orthodontics patients.
