Orthodontics An Overview
At Nesconset Dental Associates we offer a range of orthodontic treatments in the comfort of our Nesconset, NY dentist office. You and your family can receive high-quality orthodontic care under one roof. Our team of dentists offers treatment consultations for patients of all ages. In many cases, orthodontic treatment can be tailored to address one specific problem, or as part of a restorative or cosmetic treatment plan.
Due to advancements in modern orthodontics, patients have a wider selection of orthodontic treatment options to choose from. In some cases, patients can choose a more discreet, comfortable solution for their orthodontic needs such as invisible braces.
How Does Orthodontic Treatment Work?
Whether you choose from metal, ceramic, or clear braces, they can be used to gently reposition your teeth into proper alignment. A well-placed set of braces can gently and effectively shift the teeth to create a straighter, healthier looking smile.
Your dentist will create a custom treatment plan to address your malocclusion. When the teeth are not properly aligned, it can increase your risk of dental trauma, bite disorders, and can affect the integrity of your teeth. Treating crooked teeth can improve your confidence as well as your dental health.

My family have been patients of Dr. John Ceaser of Nesconset Dental Associates for almost 20 years. Recently Dr. Ceaser introduced me to a dental device to curtail my snoring and moderate sleep apnea. Words cannot describe how this device has changed my ability to sleep undisturbed throughout the night.…Anthony Repalone
Orthodontics What to Expect
We recommend that patients interested in orthodontic treatment visit our Nesconset dentist office for a consultation. During your consultation, we can assess the condition of your teeth and recommend the best form of treatment for your smile. The type of treatment and the length of your treatment will depend on a range of factors. We will be sure to explore all your options during your consultation.
Types Of Braces
- Traditional Metal Brace: This is the most common type of orthodontic treatment patients receive to address crooked teeth. Metal braces effectively straighten crooked teeth with the use of metal brackets and archwires. Although most patients are candidates for this traditional orthodontic option, metal braces are more widely used today for moderate to severe concerns and for patients with complex bite problems. They may be used in conjunction with an oral appliance.
- Ceramic Braces: Ceramic braces are ideal for teens and older patients who are seeking orthodontic treatment that is more discreet. They are made from a clear ceramic material, which makes them less visible than traditional metal braces.
- “Invisible” Braces: We offer Invisalign® treatment for patients with mild to moderate orthodontic concerns. These clear aligners are designed to gradually shift crooked teeth into proper alignment. Patients can remove their aligners to brush, floss, and eat, without dealing with metal brackets or wires. They are often the ideal solution for both teens and adults with mild to moderate concerns.
