Orthodontics Can Improve Your Health and Appearance
If you are unhappy with gaps in your smile or crooked teeth, you may benefit from orthodontic treatment. Dr. Andrew J. Kuhlberg offers several types of orthodontics at our Avon, CT, practice, including metal braces, ceramic braces, Invisalign®, and Invisalign Teen. Advancements in modern materials and techniques mean that orthodontic treatment is generally more comfortable, discreet, and faster than previous methods. And as a board-certified orthodontic specialist recognized by the American Board of Orthodontics, a distinction held by only 25 percent of practicing orthodontists, Dr. Kuhlberg is uniquely qualified to treat even the most complex cases.
Dr. Kuhlberg has experienced firsthand the link that has been identified between feeling confident in your smile and quality of life.
Evaluating Candidates for Orthodontic Treatment
Patients suffering from several types of oral health and aesthetic concerns make good candidates for braces or other orthodontics. We are able to help patients with:
- Crooked teeth
- Open bite
Your Initial Consultation
Our team meticulously customizes treatment based on each patient's unique needs. The first step in your treatment planning will consist of a thorough evaluation. After discussing your concerns and goals, Dr. Kuhlberg will examine your teeth and jaw. We may take photographs, digital impressions, and digital x-rays to gain a more comprehensive view of your mouth, and also create a baseline to track your treatment.
Finding Your Treatment Solution
Dr. Kuhlberg is upfront and always has the patients' best interests in mind. He will only recommend a treatment that will provide you with the most comprehensive, long-lasting results. Despite its benefits, Invisalign®, for example, might fail to provide the level of improvement you require. In addition, we strive to provide economical treatment in the shortest amount of time possible.
Although specifics differ on a case-by-case basis, Dr. Kuhlberg will take time to discuss common concerns and also answer your questions. You can expect to discuss the estimate of your treatment timeline, how much your orthodontics will cost, and how you can ensure and maintain the best results. He will also touch on lifestyle factors since patient compliance is an important component in orthodontic treatment.
Dr. Kuhlberg has experienced firsthand the link that has been identified between feeling confident in your smile and quality of life. A straight, symmetrical smile can do more than improve your appearance. Ensuring your bite is healthy and balanced can make it easier to clean your teeth, decrease your risk of decay and gum disease, minimize the chance you will develop temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, and lessen the risk of chipping or wearing your teeth. By preserving a healthy smile, you can also avoid more expensive, invasive treatment that might be required in the future to treat tooth loss or bone recession.
