According to Radio New Zealand, dentists are coming under fire from their orthodontist counterparts for providing treatment that may not be their exact specialty. Experts from the Association of Orthodontists believe more dentists are performing periodontal health that falls outside of their realm of knowledge. 

Although many people are under the impression that dentists and orthodontists are one in the same, they each have different specialties for which they are trained for.

It is always recommended to see a specialist for any health ailment, including oral. Upper Eastside Orthodontists is a great place to receive oral health care for a number of reasons. 

Dr. Tanya Vaysman is a New York board certified orthodontist trained in the latest orthodontic health techniques and treatments.

In addition to the usual orthodontic treatment you can expect at Upper Eastside Orthodontists, Dr. Vaysman also specializes in "invisible treatment" known as Invisalign. Invisalign straightens the teeth without a need for brackets, bands or wires. Using custom-made aligners, Invisalign fits comfortably in the mouth also reducing cuts and other issues that can occur with regular braces.

With Invisalign, those that wear adult braces can correct their teeth without feeling as if they need to hide their smile during the work day, at their children's school events or on a date night.

This type of treatment attests to Dr. Vaysman's ability to infuse innovative healthcare practices with excellent, practiced treatment methods. In addition to her years of training, Dr. Vaysman is also a member of the American Association of Orthodontists and the New York County Dental Society. 

Upper Eastside Orthodontists' "invisible" treatment methods reflects our concern for the needs of our patients. Many adult patients are unable to be fitted with ceramic braces or other visible types of treatment due to their livelihood and personal preferences. Dr. Vaysman works with each patient individually to create a treatment place that caters to their specific needs as well as overall orthodontic health.
