Robert Weeman, DDS is a dentist specializing in teen orthodontics Lower Manhattan. Teen orthodontics are a great way for your teen to have straight and healthy teeth from a young age. We provide teens and children with braces as well as early orthodontic treatment, which is the practice of aligning teeth or problems with the bite.
The goal of interceptive orthodontic treatment is to prevent a bad bite. Early orthodontic treatment is a way to map out treatment before the braces are put on, when the child is still young. A child’s first orthodontic exam should be around age 7. Bad bites that are not treated quickly can cause more damage and potential future expensive dental bills. Our Teen orthodontics Lower Manhattan office will check for potential problems that show there is a need for future dental work, and allows us to catch orthodontic problems as early as possible. Interceptive orthodontics are designed to create room for crowded and erupted teeth while helping reduce the need for tooth extractions. Sometimes teeth need to be extracted first in order to place the interceptive orthodontics.
We have a wide range of orthodontics, such as regular traditional braces, Invisalign braces and clear plastic aligners. Invisalign moves the teeth into place using a series of clear plastic aligners that do not require the spacers, brackets or traditional metal hardware. Over time, teeth gently align into their required positions.Depending on the severity of the misalignment Invisalign can take a year or more. Call our teen orthodontics Lower Manhattan office today for more information. We have two offices in New York, one on Broadway and one on East 48th street. We also do orthognathic surgical evaluations, create clear ceramic braces and removable appliances and help you with treatment planning for orthodontics.
