The most visible benefit of undergoing orthodontic treatment is the improved appearance and self-esteem that comes from a straight, beautiful smile! 


How Treatment Works 

Goodman Orthodontics offers a wide variety of treatments that utilize various orthodontic appliances like braces and Invisalign. These appliances are made from different materials including metal, ceramic, and plastic. Certain appliances are removable during treatment; others are bonded to your teeth. 

Today's technology has reduced the size of braces brackets, making them less noticeable and more efficient. In addition to choosing between metal, ceramic, or plastic brackets, patients can choose the color ties they want to hold their wire to the brackets.

While not all orthodontic treatments suit all patients, your smile will benefit regardless. No matter the type of orthodontic appliance you use, the design’s function is the same—apply gentle and constant pressure to the teeth to slowly move them into the proper alignment. 


Treatment Time

Treatment times vary depending on the patient and their specific oral/dental needs. Interceptive treatment may take as few as six months. Full orthodontic treatment generally takes between one to three years. Patient cooperation helps keep treatment on track, so be sure to keep up with your Manhattan or Riverdale appointments, avoid harmful foods, and wear your rubber bands or headgear as instructed by Dr. Goodman.
