An Overview of Orthodontic Treatment

Posted .

When you come to Michael Emanuel DDS PLLC to get orthodontic treatment for you or your child, we work hard to make your journey to straight teeth is as comfortable and quick as possible. Come to our office in Brooklyn, New York, if you think either of you have an alignment problem.

During the initial visit, Dr. Michael Emanuel will assess what the alignment problem is and take impressions of the upper and lower teeth so he can make models. Using those models, our orthodontist will make a plan to align your teeth or your child’s teeth.

At a follow-up visit, permanent braces will be attached to your teeth and adjusted to begin aligning your teeth. There may be some initial discomfort or pain in the first phases of treatment, but it should pass soon.

After the initial installation of the braces, you will need to come in once every few weeks for 18-24 months to adjustment your teeth on track to becoming straight. These visits will help our orthodontist assess the progress of your treatment and make necessary adjustments.

Straightening your teeth will have a huge impact on your quality of life. At the end of treatment, you’ll have a beautiful, strong smile you can be proud of. So, contact us today to schedule your consultation.
