It’s Time to See an Orthodontist

It’s Time to See an Orthodontist

Orthodontist Garden City, NY

Dr. Susan Gail Tierney and Dr. Michael Sheinis and the team at Straight Set Orthodontics are orthodontist specialists in Garden City, NY. Braces aren’t just for kids or teens anymore. Today, nearly 20 percent of people wearing braces are adults. Less visible options like clear aligner trays and ceramic braces have attracted more adults to visit an orthodontist like Dr. Tierney or Dr. Sheinis.

Teeth can change position over time; commonly caused by natural growth, injury, or tongue thrust (a condition where the tongue projects through the front teeth during speech, swallowing, or when the tongue is at rest). Treatments from an orthodontist are highly effective in treating these issues in addition to the dental malocclusions (the misalignment of the upper and lower teeth) that most people are familiar with.

Teeth shift over time. 

If you had braces as a kid and you find that now, as an adult, you need them again, that’s because your teeth shift as you get older, and some people’s teeth move faster and/or more than others. You may be experiencing discomfort caused by a malocclusion, don’t like the look of their misaligned teeth, or want straighter teeth for a new you. Dr. Susan Gail Tierney and Dr. Michael Sheinis and the team at Straight Set Orthodontics can help.

There are many available treatment options.

There are many types of braces available for all ages in Garden City, NY.

  • Traditional metal braces
  • Ceramic braces: often clear or tooth-colored with a clear wire to bind them.
  • Lingual braces: adhered behind the teeth rendering them completely invisible.
  • Clear aligner systems: like Invisalign; practically invisible and removable for brushing, flossing, and eating.

The cost hasn’t changed much.

The prices for all types of braces have remained generally the same, especially considering inflation rates. Whether you are receiving traditional braces, ceramic braces, lingual braces, or Invisalign aligner trays, there are financing options offered by the orthodontist team at Straight Set Orthodontics.
