I was very upset that my teeth have moved after my first round in braces when I was younger. I found myself with an overbite and gaps between my front teeth. My friend recommended Dr. Bukholts and I am so grateful to her! Dr. Bukholts is very knowledgeable, pleasant, and friendly. She told me that she can fix my problems in a much shorter time than I expected and for a lot less $. That was an incredible news, but as a cherry on top, Dr. Bukholts’ office is so beautiful and comfortable – I love coming there! If you are considering any kind of teeth straightening look no further. Perfect Smiles Orthodontics is the PERFECT place! ~ZocDoc

All orthodontic braces work essentially the same way: by employing light, constant force to move teeth into proper alignment. But how we apply these forces can vary, as numerous innovations have become available in recent years. Some of the newer, less visible orthodontic appliances have been designed to blend more easily into an adult’s personal and professional lifestyle. Types of orthodontic appliances available include:
Instead of highly noticeable metal brackets, you can have clear ones made of ceramic, plastic or a combination of both. They are hardly visible, except for the thin almost imperceptible wire.
Your clear Invisalign aligners will be made just for you by the Invisalign lab, with each set designed to bring your teeth closer to their ideal alignment. You will have a chance to see and approve your virtual end result before your aligners are ordered, thus becoming an equal partner in your orthodontic treatment. There are absolutely no wires or brackets. For most adults this is an appliance that fits best into their lifestyle as it is virtually invisible, removable, does not require any adjustments to diet or oral hygiene, requires less frequent visits, and eliminates possible emergencies such as broken brackets and pocking wires.
At our Upper West Side Orthodontic practice more than 50% of our orthodontic patients are adults. At Perfect Smiles Orthodontics we offer one of the most technologically advanced metal braces systems on the market – Inovation-R. It provided faster results with fewer appointments and less treatment time, more adults are choosing to improve their smile, health and confidence than ever before and therefore are choosing this predictable and effective appliance.
Beneficial services for adults include PROPEL orthodontics – which gives you the ability to straighten your teeth significantly quicker than braces alone. The PROPEL System is a novel treatment that is scientifically proven to stimulate bone to remodel faster, accelerating the movement of teeth by 50% or more when done in conjunction with any orthodontic treatment. PROPEL uses your body’s own natural physiologic system to stimulate bone to respond faster when orthodontic force is applied to teeth. The result is significantly reduced treatment time.
