It’s Not Too Late To Get Them Straight

cosmetic dental and adult braces

Are you an adult in Scarsdale with misaligned teeth? Do you regret not having orthodontic treatment when you were a teen? It’s not too late to straighten your teeth – and there are more types of braces available than ever before.

Perhaps you are not familiar with the latest types of braces. Here is a quick rundown of the most common types used in Scarsdale, Westchester County and White Plains cosmetic dental practices.

If you don’t want the whole world to know you are wearing braces, ‘behind the teeth’ or lingual braces may be a good option. So-called ‘invisible braces‘ work great for many White Plains men and women of all ages. Some types of braces are offered in ceramic, which are also less visible than metal braces. These are often called ‘clear braces.’

Invisalign, Damon, and iBraces, are some of the trade names of proprietary orthodontic systems used in the New York dental community.

Once the orthodontia patient has completed treatment, he or she needs to wear a retainer to keep those pretty teeth in line. The traditional Hawley retainer consists of a metal wire that surrounds the teeth and holds them in place. The metal wire is attached to a molded acrylic form that fits snugly in either the upper or lower part of the mouth.

Clear retainers are also popular with NYC orthodontists and their patients. They fit the teeth like a transparent glove without the need for hardware. Some Scarsdale patients believe clear retainers are more comfortable than other types.

If you want more beautiful teeth, come into The Dental Design Center in White Plains and discuss your goals with Ira Handschuh, DDS. Dr. Handschuh will examine your teeth and recommend the most effective system for you.
