Have you been thinking about getting braces for yourself or for your child? In either case it is important that you find an orthodontist who is not only going to make your smile beautiful, but who will help create a smile that is healthy and long-lasting. Patients enjoy coming to our dental practice where they can get braces in East Harlem because they enjoy our office atmosphere and are fully confident in the work of our expert orthodontist.
At Central Park North Orthodontics the name of our expert orthodontist is Dr. Bradford C. Washington. Dr. Washington is a warm and engaging orthodontist; kids and adults alike enjoy the time they spend at our practice, getting braces in East Harlem. Dr. Washington is also a certified Invisalign and Insignia provider. Invisalign is a great way for teens and adults to have their teeth straightened; no one is able to tell that you are wearing the clear plastic aligners so you can attend school, work and social functions without being embarrassed by wearing braces. The Insignia state-of-the-art system assists Dr. Washington in providing his patients with beautifully designed, long lasting smiles that are well constructed.
When teens and adults come to get braces in East Harlem from our practice they are able to select from many different treatment options. However, depending on your individual case, Dr. Washington may recommend one treatment option over the other. Among the braces options that we offer our patients are: Invisalign; Insignia digital braces; traditional metal braces; and ceramic braces. Our practice is also open to children who need to have interceptive orthodontic procedures performed at an early age to prevent needing more complicated orthodontic work as they get into their teens. Treatment with Invisalign takes about the same time as treatment with traditional metal braces. Even the metal braces of today are improved as the metal brackets are now smaller, more comfortable, and more attractive. Clear ceramic braces are a great option for patients who do not want traditional metal braces, but do not want or cannot be treated with Invisalign. These ceramic braces closely match the tooth color so they are much less visible than metal braces. However, due to their material, they are more delicate than metal and treatment time is a bit longer.
