The doctors at Upper East Side Orthodontics assist patients with crooked and misaligned teeth to achieve better oral health and a more attractive smile. Orthodontic treatment, with its core philosophy of correcting teeth positioning and jaw alignment, offers numerous benefits including:

  • Clearer speech
  • Correcting an improper bite
  • Improved ability to chew food
  • Closed large spaces between teeth
  • Cleaner teeth when brushing, which can reduce the risk of gum disease
  • Providing proper tooth alignment

and of course

  • Improved confidence

As you can see, braces correct much more than cosmetic issues. Properly aligned teeth are essential to maintain good oral health throughout life.

How Children Develop Improper Tooth Alignment

Children can develop improper tooth alignment for many reasons including thumb sucking and trauma to the face. Some just naturally have misaligned teeth. Whatever the reason, Dr. Vaysman, Dr. Basir, and Dr. Jahn ‘Shahi are happy to meet with you and your child for an orthodontic consultation. Parents are encouraged to begin their child’s orthodontic care in the pre-teen or early teen years.

Is Your Child a Good Candidate for Treatment with our New York City Orthodontist?

To answer this question, one of our orthodontists is happy to evaluate your child. However, you can safely assume your child will benefit from braces if they have:

  • two rows of teeth form an overbite or underbite
  • The teeth are crowded and overlap each other
  • Several teeth have too much space in between them
  • Protruding front teeth
  • Teeth that have settled in an improper position and become impacted

The above are just some of the most common reasons a child might need to start wearing braces. We encourage you to schedule an appointment with Upper East Side Orthodontists today for an evaluation. Dr. Vaysman, Dr. Basir, or Dr. Jahn’Shahi will also explain the orthodontic treatment process to you to ensure you are clear and confident as to what are your child’s orthodontic treatment choices. Common questions to be answered include how long your child will need to wear braces, financial concerns, and addressing your other questions.

“We had a fantastic first visit to the dentist today. Everyone was SO patient and wonderful with my son, and I couldn’t be happier with the entire team. I was a little nervous going into this (it was his first visit to the dentist ever), but I was put at ease from the minute I walked in. I cannot say enough good things about this office!”

Sadie F.

“I took my two sons (3 and 5) for a general check up with Dr. Shiva and we had a wonderful experience. First, the practice is very pleasant and kids friendly. Dr. Shiva was gentle and took the time to explain the process and did a great job fairly quickly. My boys really enjoyed their experience and we will definitely go back.”
