Invisalign for Adults and Teens
Our Invisalign certified providers offer start to finish treatments for both adults as well as teenagers. These clear, removable aligners allow you to go about your day without other people ever realizing that you’re wearing braces. You can easily remove them during meals, meetings, or when you need to floss your teeth. Plus, there are no extra appliances to adjust, so you typically need fewer, shorter follow-up visits.
Propel Acceleration Treatments
How would you like to cut your orthodontic treatment time in half? Using a method called Propel, we can reduce the amount of time you wear braces by as much as 50%. The microperforation technique enables your teeth to safely realign in a quicker way, without damaging supporting tooth structures.
Conventional braces are ideal for treating more moderate to severe misalignment needs, or for our pediatric dental patients. Adults may also opt for these treatments in some cases. As such, we offer both traditional metal as well as tooth colored bracket options.
Interceptive Ortho for Children
Many bite discrepancies can be addressed while children are still growing, to limit the extent of orthodontic therapies needed later. As such, interceptive orthodontics (Phase I treatments) are sometimes recommended. Temporary appliances such as palatal expanders or other aids can help to modify growth patterns, so your child’s bite alignment develops more accurately.
Should Adults Consider Getting Braces?
Correcting the alignment of your teeth can help to reduce the risk of problems like TMD (TMJ disorder), tooth decay, and even gum disease. Orthodontic therapy is part of a comprehensive way to establish healthy biting relationships and an environment that is easier to care for, resulting in more efficient oral hygiene practices.
Misaligned bites can also result in problems like:
- Prematurely worn enamel
- Receding gumlines
- Broken or chipped restorations
- Aesthetic challenges
- “Flat” teeth across the front of the smile
- Jaw pain or headaches
Schedule an Orthodontic Evaluation for You or Your Child
Drs. Jay and Janice Cazes offer thorough orthodontic evaluations without the need to refer you to an orthodontist in Long Valley. We will assess both your jaw anatomy, facial profile, and occlusal patterns as they relate to your oral function.
If treatment is recommended, we will discuss the variety of options available, so you can make an educated decision about which type of braces or appliances fit your expectations.
Flexible Hours Mean Less Time Away from Work or School
CazesCare plan members get discounts on all orthodontic services, and an optional orthodontic consultation opportunity each calendar year. We’re open late with appointments on Saturdays, so that you don’t have to miss as much work or school during the process. Call us today to schedule your visit!
