Even if you are looking at restorative options with your dentist, we will work side-by-side to provide a collaborative approach for the best possible outcome!
Your initial appointment will consist of a full series of digital photographs and any digital x-rays as needed. You will then receive a thorough clinical examination by either of our highly qualified orthodontists, Dr. Cooney and Dr. Tyner. A full discussion and explanation of our findings, treatment options and alternatives will be presented. This appointment takes approximately one hour and is provided at no cost to you. During the initial examination for each patient we will address any questions you may have and cover the basics of orthodontic treatment. Members of our staff will be also able to discuss scheduling and financial arrangements with you.
Since everyone’s biology and dental situations vary, treatment times will be different for each patient. We will be able give you an estimated treatment time prescribed specifically for you during the initial screening appointment.
Some of the common orthodontic problems that we are able to treat include:
Some patients will qualify to use our AcceleDent Aura technology. With this device, tooth movement may be accelerated by approximately 40% without causing any underlying issues! AcceleDent Aura uses SoftPulse Technology™ to generate small vibrations, or micropulses through a mouthpiece used nightly to enhance the movements directed by the orthodontics, allowing for faster tooth movement.
We offer a variety of options when it comes to obtaining your ideal smile. Many times, different types of appliances may be necessary prior to or in conjunction with braces systems. For our bracket systems, we offer conventional metal brackets as well as less noticeable clear ceramic brackets. We are also an Top Provider for the Invisalign clear aligner system in Upstate New York. All these systems can get you the results you’re looking for depending on which option works best with your lifestyle. We will thoroughly discuss which options will be most advantageous for you at your initial screening.
We are not a direct participator with insurance companies, though we do accept assignment of benefits if they are available through your plan. We offer many financial options in addition to any insurance assignment benefit, including lower down payments and customizable payment options. All financial options will be discussed and given to you at the initial consult.
I had wanted straight teeth since I was 10 years old, and here I am decades later and I have the smile of my dreams!
I actually looked forward to coming to my appointments and I was sad when I would see that I wouldn't be back for 2 or 3 months because I did enjoy the environment so much.
