Braces in Wellington
Every smile is unique, but not every smile is perfect. If you are interested in braces in Wellington – whether for medical reasons, cosmetic, reasons, or both – then our experts here at Freedman & Haas Orthodontics can help teach you more about the types of braces we offer and how they can help you achieve the smile that you’ve always wanted.
Depending on your specific needs, there may be a certain type of orthodontic treatment that can be used to yield the best possible results. If you need to get braces in Wellington, the first thing that you’ll need to do is to schedule an evaluation. During this initial exam, our orthodontists -either Dr. Freedman or Dr. Haas – will examine the structure of your teeth and determine exactly which type of braces will work best for you, as well as whether you need any additional tools such as retainers, expanders, and the like. Of the braces that we offer here at Freedman & Haas Orthodontics, you may need or be eligible for traditional metal braces, gold braces, ceramic braces, invisible braces, or lingual braces. Traditional braces are of the typical variety, including metal brackets and wires. Gold and ceramic braces are similar. Gold braces are essentially the same as traditional metal braces, but they may be considered a more attractive option for cosmetic reasons. The same goes for ceramic braces. Instead of metal brackets, the brackets are made from a tooth colored ceramic material that matches the color of your teeth more closely. Invisible braces do not use metal brackets or wires at all, instead using a clear plastic that is molded to fit over your teeth and adjusted to help keep them moving gradually. Lingual braces are placed behind the teeth, and may be a great option for athletes, models, or musicians.
With the help of our orthodontists here at Freedman & Haas Orthodontics you can learn more about braces in Wellington and exactly what kind of treatment option you can expect to meet your needs. Call us to schedule your first appointment today.
Palm Beach orthodontist
At our orthodontics practice we provide treatment for children, teens, and adults. Today, orthodontic care is appropriate at all different ages, with more adult patients than ever before coming to visit our Palm Beach orthodontist, Dr. Douglas Freedman or Dr. Sharon Haas.
We provide many different types of orthodontic treatment, as well as treatment with different braces options. Our Palm Beach orthodontist at Freedman & Haas Orthodontics, will first assess your individual smile situation and let you know which type of treatment option will work best for you. Parents are urged to bring in their children aged between seven and 11 so that they too can receive an evaluation by our orthodontist. Today, it is common for young children to receive orthodontic care so that they will need to have less involved care later on, when they are a teen. Interceptive orthodontic care may involve influencing the growth of the jaws so that they will be able to accommodate all of the teeth that have yet to erupt. This type of treatment is much easier when the child is young, and the jaw is still growing. For our teen patients and adults, we offer many different types of braces options. Many of our adult patients enjoy treatment with Invisalign because they are able to have their teeth straightened without the use of wires or brackets on their teeth. We also offer other braces options. Metal braces are still the most common types of braces. However, the brackets are much smaller than ever before so they are now much more comfortable and attractive. Ceramic braces are a popular treatment option for teens who do not want to wear traditional metal braces. They are made of clear materials and are much less visible on your teeth than metal braces. We also offer lingual braces which are hidden behind the teeth and cannot be seen when you smile. They are a great option for athletes, people in the public eye, and adult professionals.
