Why Braces?

Dr. Ora R. Canter DDS: Orthodontist in Astoria On Steinway Street.

Crooked teeth can not only create an unattractive smile, but also an unhealthy one. For this reason, our orthodontist provides braces and other straightening systems which can shift teeth into a new, better alignment. Please contact Dr. Ora Rosenfeld Canter if you want to learn why our braces in Astoria, New York, are so important for good oral health.
Braces are an orthodontic treatment option that can help you achieve a smile that is straighter and healthier. One of the most common orthodontic treatments available, braces work to improve your smile by gradually, gently realigning your teeth. Braces consist of a system of metal brackets, wires, and bands. The brackets are attached to the front of your teeth and are connected to each other through the use of a metal wire and bands. As we adjust the wire, the braces guide your teeth to their ideal positions in your smile. Ceramic braces are also often available, which are the same color as your teeth for a more discreet orthodontic option.

If you have ever wanted your smile to be straighter and more attractive, braces may be right for your smile. With braces, we are able to correct orthodontic issues such as:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Problems with the bite, including crossbite, open bite, underbite, and overbite

During your treatment, you will visit our office on a regular basis so we can make sure that your braces are adjusted as needed to continue progressing towards a straighter, healthier smile.
