It has been almost a year since you and your wonderful staff changed my life. By the time you all had reset the order of my bite and removed the pain in my jaw with your night and daytime appliances, my C-PAP machine for my “severe” sleep apnea was no longer needed and my sleep became quiet again. After I graduated from your excellent care, Dr. Barone recommended that I return to spend the night at the Weill Cornell Center for Sleep to get the definitive read on how well your reconstructive work had mastered my serious sleep apnea. In layman’s terms, the score for quality of my breathing while sleeping was something like a “1” and was the lowest score the Center had ever seen. I forwarded that report to you at that time. I do not expect to ever return to my C-PAP machine. Your and all your staff are truly masters of your craft!! I would recommend you heartily to anyone who has jaw, bite, or sleep apnea issues. You are the best in the business!
Orthodontic braces treatments are available to patients of all ages. Almost 1/2 of of orthodontic braces patients are adults. In terms, if braces for children, in accordance with the American Association of Orthodontists, The Gelb Center recommends that children have their first orthodontic evaluation by the age of 3-4. With early evaluation and diagnosis, children can achieve optimal orthodontic results.
Early treatment provides a range of benefits and often means that a patient can avoid surgery or other serious complications. There is, of course, no age limit for orthodontic treatment as both children and adults benefit from orthodontic braces. As such, our office accommodates orthodontic patients of all ages.
There are two major types of orthodontic braces for adults and kids: fixed braces and removable braces. There are also very popular contemporary treatments such as “invisible” braces, Invisalign, and traditional (visible) braces. If you are a candidate for braces, our orthodontists will recommend the type of braces that are best suited for you.
For the vast majority of our Upper East Side NYC orthodontic braces patients, wearing fixed appliances (commonly called braces) will be a major part of their orthodontic treatment — and those braces, for the most part, will be the familiar silvery-metal type. But while they’re still quite popular, traditional-looking metal braces are no longer the only game in town. Let’s have a look at some of the contemporary options available in orthodontic appliances.
