Have you recently been told by another orthodontist that your child does not need braces? If you would like a second opinion, we offer free consultations. Braces can be an investment, so it is important that you feel comfortable with the treatment plan before moving forward. At Shirley Orthodontics and Pediatrics in Shirley, New York, we can help guide you through the process, whether you are a parent looking to care for your child, or an adult looking to straighten your smile.
Getting A Second Opinion
Braces and Invisalign are an investment to improve your smile. Besides that, it is also important to feel confident in your orthodontist. Even if you believe that your current dentist has a good treatment plan set up, it is never a bad idea to have someone else take a look. This could provide helpful insight to you before beginning the process.
Our consultations are free of charge. During this appointment, the orthodontist will examine the patient’s oral cavity. They may also take X-rays to get a closer look at the smile’s alignment, as well as ask questions about medical history. This is also your opportunity to ask questions about treatment, too. After the consultation, you can take some time to decide what the best way to move forward is.
We Accept Transfer Patients
If you have recently moved, or want to switch orthodontic practices, we accept transfer cases as well. Your previous dental practice can send us your records and we will be able to continue your treatment. Aside from orthodontic care, we also offer pediatric dentistry as well.
It’s important that your little ones have a healthy smile, and preventive care is a crucial part of this. At their first visit to our office, we will do a thorough examination of their oral cavity to assess what state their oral hygiene is in. We will also perform a cleaning that will leave their smile feeling fresh. If we notice any signs of cavities, we will discuss a treatment plan with you.
Keeping Their Smiles Healthy
We can help prevent cavities before they form. Dental sealants can be applied to your child’s molar to act as a protective barrier. These are helpful because the molars can be hard for your little one to brush thoroughly. We also offer fluoride treatment which can help restrengthen the enamel and fight cavities. If dental decay does occur, we can restore this with a cavity. Even though your child will eventually lose their baby teeth, it is important to take care of this first set of dentitions.
