Three Questions for Your Orthodontist

Orthodontics can seem extremely complicated or even overwhelming for some patients near Mohegan Lake. But Glaser Orthodontics believes his patients should feel at ease throughout the entire orthodontic treatment process. That is why we have created this cheat sheet to ask the orthodontist and help answer all your questions about orthodontics:

1. At what age should my child or I seek orthodontic treatment?

Dr. Glaser says that the answer to this is that there is no right answer – every individual is different, so his or her mouth will be ready for orthodontic treatment at different times as well. Glaser Orthodontics does however suggest bringing in your child around age 7, when the teeth are starting to fully come in and protrude. This will allow Dr. Glaser and the team at Glaser Orthodontics to stay on top of any problems before they become big issues!

3. Can I just get Invisalign from my dentist?
