Partnership: You, Your Orthodontist and Dentist

Having a healthy, beautiful smile takes teamwork. Your orthodontist, your family dentist, you (and your parents if you are a minor) will all need to be involved. Your orthodontist will provide a treatment plan for straightening your teeth while your dentist makes sure your teeth and gums stay nice and healthy. As a patient you must follow the instructions given by both your orthodontist and dentist in order to achieve optimal results. Parents should make sure that their children are following all rules given by their orthodontists and family dentists, including avoiding certain sticky and hard foods while wearing their appliances and maintaining a good balanced diet as well as proper brushing habits. You should visit your regular dentist every six months during your orthodontic treatment in order to maintain proper oral hygiene.

Patients visit us from West New York, Guttenberg, North Bergen, Secaucus and Union City in Hudson County.
