Orthodontic Treatment

Common Orthodontic Corrections in Adults and Children

Dr. DeSimone with a patientDeSimone Orthodontics specializes in creating exceptional smiles by combining artistry and advanced technology. Orthodontics is the specialty of dentistry focused on the diagnosis and treatment of dental and associated facial irregularities. The results of orthodontic treatment can be dramatic — beautiful smiles, improved dental health and an enhanced quality of life for many people of all ages. Orthodontic problems, which can result from genetic and environmental factors, must be diagnosed before treatment begins. Proper diagnosis involves taking photographs, digital radiographs, and dental impressions, which enables Dr. DeSimone to make informative decisions about the form of treatment necessary.

Treatment typically lasts from 6 to 30 months, depending on age and the severity of the orthodontic problem. Outstanding results are also dependent on maximizing the coordination of care between you and our practice. We are committed to delivering the best possible service in order for you to achieve your orthodontic objectives.

Dr. DeSimone provides orthodontic treatment for adults, adolescents and children. We follow the guidelines established by the American Association of Orthodontists by recommending that an orthodontic evaluation take place at age 7 for all children. This early evaluation can help to determine the best time to begin any necessary treatment.

Many progressive treatments are now available for patients 7 to 11 years of age that provide significant benefits, especially when jaw irregularities are present. These treatments may also prevent certain conditions from worsening. Treating children with these types of problems during their growth stages allows our practice to achieve results that may not be possible when face and jaw bones have fully developed. This early treatment can simplify or eliminate additional treatment for the child.

Our Latest Patient Testimonial

I'm a mom with two kids who are going through the gauntlet of orthodontist visits involved with the appliance / braces / retainer stage of growing up. Dr DiSimone and her office stands out not just due to the quality of care, but also for the effort they put into going above and beyond to create a good experience for my kids. From the popcorn they give out the day your kid's braces finally come off, to the gift dollars the kids earn for each visit, this is an office that knows how to make your kids enjoy a silver lining -- even for procedures that they might otherwise dread.
