We specialize in all types of orthodontic treatment for children, adolescents and adults. We use state of the art appliances such as miniature metal, ceramic, and gold braces, Invisalign, and modern lighter wires that make treatment as efficient and comfortable as possible. We do early treatment, when indicated, such as space maintainers, palatal expanders and other growth modification appliances (Phase I). The American Association of Orthodontists recommends an initial orthodontic consultation by age 7 to determine if early intervention is indicated. In many cases, early orthodontic treatment can modify a patient’s growth to correct “overbites” or “underbites” or create space for eruption of permanent teeth. Usually, comprehensive orthodontic treatment (Phase II) is still necessary later, but as a result of early treatment, the length of time wearing braces is reduced and in many cases, extraction of permanent teeth can be avoided.
We use digital X-rays and digital imaging in making initial records that allow us to plan your treatment in the most comprehensive manner. Your treatment plan will be discussed with you on an individual basis with plenty of opportunity for questions and explanations. We are OSHA compliant with all aspects of sterilization. All of this allows us to deliver the highest quality orthodontic treatment in a caring environment.
Our clerical and clinical staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and one of the most experienced orthodontic staffs in the area. Our goal is to deliver the highest quality treatment and ensure your orthodontic experience to be as stress-free as possible. For your convenience, we have 3 office locations in LaVale, McCoole and Oakland, Maryland.
