Shirley, NY, dentist offers transfer cases and second opinions

Are you planning to move cities soon? Are you unhappy with your current orthodontic care? Changing practices can seem stressful, but it does not have to be. The team at Shirley Orthodontics and Pediatrics in NY accepts transfer cases and can help make this process run as smoothly as possible. We also offer second opinions so you can feel confident before starting treatment.

We will Help Keep Your Treatment On Track

Whether you had to move cities or you want to change the practice you are currently at, we are here to help. You can come in for a free consultation with our team so we can assess your current care and create a treatment plan. If you were a previous patient of at-home aligners that are no longer in business, we can help get your straightening service back on track. We offer free consultations for second opinions before starting orthodontic care, too. If you have discussed a plan with another orthodontist but would like another look, you can come in for a visit with our team. We will examine your oral cavity, take X-rays, and discuss the timeline for your alignment. You can choose to start treatment with our team or continue care with your previous practice if you feel confident.

We Offer Care For Adults And Children

If your child has reached the age of seven years old, they can begin phase one care. We can help guide the growth of their jaw and prepare them for braces. Phase one may include treatments like expanders, space maintainers, and retainers. Once their jaw has developed there will be a short resting period before braces. When it is time to start braces, we can help your child feel comfortable with this process. We offer different colored bands for your child to choose from and personalize their braces. Every few weeks, you can bring them in to have their braces adjusted. Do not forget to continue regular dental visits twice a year too. This process may take around one to three years depending on the severity of their misalignment.

It is never too late to correct your smile. If you are an adult with a crooked or overcrowded smile, we are here to help. We offer more discreet options, like Invisalign and clear braces, for adults so that others do not notice. Straightening your teeth can improve your oral hygiene and the appearance of your smile. This can help boost your confidence, help you appear more professional, and leave a good impression on others.
