The 3M Clarity ADVANCED ceramic bracket system employs the latest technology to enhance performance and esthetics. By combining progressive technology and state-of-the-art design, Clarity brackets are a predictable system for efficient orthodontic treatment and have been further proven to increase patient comfort. These small translucent brackets are comprised of an innovative, ceramic material which lends to an attractive appearance and will resist discoloration over the duration of the patient's treatment.
The Incognito™ Appliance System is completely customized to the patient's teeth and case. The system features custom brackets on the tongue-side of the teeth, along with custom arch wires to deliver invisible, comfortable and convenient care. This revolutionary treatment allows for patients to smile with confidence from the day of bonding all the way through to the finish. We can use Incognito™ for full comprehensive treatment, as well as for minor correctional movement with the Incognito™ Lite system.
Invisalign® braces are the braces of the future. They utilize a custom series of invisible, removable and comfortable aligners to straighten your teeth. Invisalign® aligners clear, comfortable, and removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, and as a bonus, your oral hygiene routine is not affected. The aligners fit over your teeth like a glove and have no metal or bulk to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. However, there are mechanical limitations to the Invisalign® system and Dr. Feldman will discuss with you if your case is amenable to this treatment option that will lead to a long term stable result.
Treatment For Adults
TREATMENT FOR ADULTS
It’s never too late to get the smile you’ve always wanted. Orthodontic treatments can change your life, at any stage of life. That being said, orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age and as adults we appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile. One out of every five patients in orthodontic treatment is over 21.
Perhaps you’ve been concerned about how metal braces will look and feel, but modern smile correction technology has come a long way. At Feldman Orthodontics, we offer esthetically pleasing options for straightening your teeth, including Incognito Lingual braces (hidden) and Invisalign (clear, comfortable and removable).
It’s true–adult orthodontic treatments can be more complex than a child’s, but our highly specialized team of orthodontist, surgeons and dentists can ensure the best treatment process and outcome. We continually study the latest advances in orthodontics, allowing us to treat all kinds of smile irregularities in the most comfortable, effective way possible. We also offer a very personal patient experience from the moment you walk through our door, until your brand new smile is revealed. It’s why people come to see us!
Treatment For Teens
The teenage years are the most common in which patients come into the office seeking orthodontic treatment. At our office, we want our teens to know that they have options for treatment modalities to get the smile they deserve. Esthetic options we offer include Incognito™ lingual braces, Invisalign® teen, and Clarity ADVANCED ceramic brackets.
Treatment For Kids
Healthy smiles start at a young age, and as a preventative orthodontic office, we like to examine your child’s teeth by age 8. According to the American Association of Orthodontists, this early appointment is necessary to advise if any preventative orthodontic treatment is required, and when the best time may be to start. By age 7, the first permanent molars and incisors have usually come in, and prevalent issues such as crossbites, crowding, and ectopic teeth can be evaluated. When treatment is started early, the orthodontist can guide the growth and development of the jaw as well as the incoming permanent teeth.
Other benefits of early/Phase 1 treatment include controlling the size of the upper and lower dental arches, making space for crowded permanent teeth, reducing the likelihood of impacted teeth, correcting digit-sucking and eliminating abnormal swallowing or speech problems. In other words, early evaluation can help prevent the need for more complex treatment in the future.
During this time of active dental growth, orthodontic treatment usually isn’t needed. Children who are not needing early treatment automatically become a part of our Kids Club, where we do follow-up visits every 6 months at no charge, and parents stay informed about their child’s growth and development.
At Feldman Orthodontics, your treatments are performed using the most advanced orthodontic technology and sterilization equipment available.
We’re proud to offer the Itero scanner for our patients – no more gag-inducing impressions, or the delay of having to send them by mail for appliance fabrication. A 3D image of your mouth is scanned and instantly sent to the lab or to Invisalign. And if you’re getting braces, we use the latest technology from 3M, specifically high-end clear porcelain brackets or the Incognito™ Appliance System, that allow for your smile to always shine through.
