Dr. Merissa Blais and the Blais Orthodontics team specialize in Orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics, seeing patients starting at age four and ranging into adulthood. Braces are used to assist in aligning and straightening teeth to improve appearance, as well as the bite and the longevity of the teeth. Having braces is not just about improving your smile; it is about improving your overall dental health. Orthodontics in Scarsdale, New York, may be used to correct malocclusions such as an overbite, underbite, crossbite, deep bite, crooked teeth and other misalignments of the teeth and jaws. Braces may be used in conjunction with other orthodontic and dentofacial appliances to aid in correcting a person’s bite.

Dental technology has improved over the years to include new options to help correct the above issues, and there are a number of techniques and products available that were not available just a few short years ago. The patient experience has improved and today’s options are less conspicuous than the full braces that were common in the past.

Traditional metal braces are still the most popular types of braces as they produce high quality results. Clear Ceramic braces are popular with adults and teenagers who want the results of braces without the look of metal.
