About Orthodontics

For most people, achieving a healthy, beautiful smile is the reason for seeking orthodontic care. If you want a more beautiful and healthier smile, correcting your concerns with braces or clear aligners will greatly improve the way you look and feel!

We also want you to feel comfortable and confident throughout your entire orthodontic experience. Our practice is dedicated to making sure you receive the quality care and patient experience you deserve.

HOW ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT WORKS

Orthodontic appliances like braces are typically made of stainless steel or ceramic, while clear aligners like Invisalign are made of special, medical-grade plastic. By placing a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, aligners and braces efficiently direct teeth to the proper position.

You can now choose clear or metal brackets and, in some cases, the color of your appliance. Our clear braces never change color or stain.  Wires are far less noticeable, and the latest materials are designed to move teeth faster with more comfort. Adults and children both reap the benefit of orthodontic treatment and there is no such thing as “too old” for braces or Invisalign.

DURATION OF TREATMENT

Treatment timing is highly individualized and variable.  Some simple treatments can last a few months while more complicated patients can take a few years.  Treatment timing and efficiency have improved over the years and nowadays most orthodontic treatment can be completed quickly and comfortably.  

Factors in treatment timing including age, treatment plan, and how bone density  But the biggest factor in the duration and success of your treatment is you! The more involved and diligent you are, the more efficient your treatment will be. For children, receiving Phase I or interceptive, early treatment can often shorten later treatment time when all of the adult teeth are present.

Orthodontic treatment, whether with braces or clear aligners, greatly varies from doctor to doctor and treatment plans and results are directly related the skill of provider. Dr. Sandman and Dr. Feibish confer and individualize every patients’ treatment plan to ensure a result that that is designed to enhance facial esthetics and creation of improved airway function. The innovative treatments created at Hoboken Orthodontics transcends “straight teeth.”
