Orthodontic Treatment Types
Finding the Perfect Fit for your Teeth
The quality orthodontics we provide to all of our patients reflects the wisdom and hard work of our board-certified orthodontists. Whether for adults, teens or children, Astoria Family Orthodontics provides several modern orthodontic treatments to give you a bright, beautiful smile. Changes occur rapidly as new techniques, methods and materials are developed. Our responsibility is to keep up with these ever changing techniques and to inform you of the best treatment with the highest degree of professional skill, ability and judgement.
Teeth straightening can drastically improve your appearance as well as your self-esteem, but it can also really improve your health. Having crooked teeth or a misaligned bite may lead to many health complications later on in life, including gum disease, bone loss, tooth decay, headaches, and jaw pain. Our team provides the very best orthodontic treatments in Queens to change the alignment of your teeth and give you the healthy, beautiful smile you’ve always wanted!
We provide an extensive array of teeth alignment systems for the entire family. The best way to determine which treatment option will work for you or your family is to come in for an exam and consultation. In the meantime, here’s a quick look at some of the types of tooth alignment treatments we offer.
Invisalign & Invisalign Teen
Invisalign is a revolutionary tooth straightening system that will gradually shift your teeth into place without anyone ever knowing it. The nearly invisible plastic aligners are also completely removable, which means you can enjoy all of your favorite foods during treatment, and keep up with your normal oral hygiene regimen.Invisalign Treatment
Ceramic Clear Braces
When Invisalign is not an option, clear ceramic braces are a great option for individuals with cosmetic concerns. They are made to blend in perfectly with the natural color of your teeth. These braces are also more durable and comfortable than traditional metal braces.Clear Braces Treatment
Traditional (Metal) Braces
Metal braces are the most affordable tooth alignment option. New technology and orthodontic processes have made standard, stainless steel metal braces smaller, sleeker, less noticeable, and more comfortable than ever before.Traditional Braces Treatment
Tooth Alignment for Orthognathic Surgery
Traditional orthodontics may not be enough to correct jaws that don't allow your teeth to meet. But orthognathic (corrective jaw) surgery may be able to treat your issue. Our orthodontists have trained with oral surgeons for over 30 years in private practice and university settings – giving them unparalleled experience performing tooth alignment in preparation for corrective jaw surgery.More Information
Lingual braces use metal brackets, but hide them and the wires on the inside of your teeth rather than the outside. This braces option allows you to straighten your teeth without having to compromise the appearance of your smile.
AcceleDent is a Class II FDA cleared device that uses soft pulse technology and cyclic forces to accelerate the movement of teeth by up to 50%. AcceleDent is combined with your regular orthodontic treatment and may also decrease discomfort.
After your braces treatment is complete, it is essential to keep teeth in their place. Our clear and durable Essix plastic retainers, which snap into place over your teeth, make the upper and lower retainers appear nearly invisible.
