Treatment Options

What are your options?

Yes, you have a choice! From colorfully cool to nearly invisible, we know every patient is unique. That’s why we offer different types of treatment options, we want to provide you with the best fit possible for your smile’s particular needs as well as your lifestyle.

Treatment Options

Metal Braces-The Gold Standard

Metal braces have for many years been the gold standard for orthodontists. At Bridgeport Braces, we utilize traditional metal braces that can be customized with new colors every month to help you achieve your perfect smile.

Treatment Options

Ceramic Braces

For patients who speak publicly or want a more esthetic option, metal braces are not typically the best option for braces. To overcome this obstacle, Bridgeport Braces offers clear ceramic braces to our patients in need of a more discreet type of braces. The brackets are tooth-colored, so most people won’t even notice you have braces!

Retainers

Now that you have finished your orthodontic treatment, you want to protect your investment of time and resources. A retainer helps to maintain your result by holding your teeth in place. We offer different kinds of retainers such as clear removable Essix , Hawley and fixed retainers that can be placed behind your teeth.

Treatment Options

Palatal Expanders

A major benefit of receiving orthodontic treatment in childhood is that it’s possible to take full advantage of a youngster’s own natural growth process to treat or even prevent malocclusions (“bad bites”). A palatal expander is a device designed to help us do that.

Palatal expanders create more space in a child’s mouth by gradually widening the upper jaw. Although this may sound scary, it’s really quite easy — both to do and to tolerate. That’s because the upper jaw actually develops as two separate halves that don’t completely fuse together until sometime after puberty. Before that happens, the two bones can gently be separated and stabilized over a period of several months.

Treatment Options

Interceptive/Early Orthodontics

When some primary teeth (also called baby teeth) are still present, we can begin to correct problems like severe overbites, underbites, and crossbites. Facial growth modification can be very effective at this age to treat some orthodontic patients, rather than waiting until the patient’s permanent teeth are all in.
