Complete Orthodontic Treatment

We know that picking the right orthodontist is a difficult decision. This is why we take steps to ensure that we’re the best orthodontic service we can possibly be. Dr. Lai has extensive training on the latest technological advances in the field of orthodontics. Digital x-rays and the most advanced equipment allow for a more accurate diagnosis, which ultimately leads to better treatment results in the shortest amount of time.

When it comes time for your child to get braces, we carefully evaluate your child’s needs and discuss with you the treatment. Dr. Lai will answer all questions personally before any treatment is rendered.

At House of Braces, NY we strive to not only provide the best orthodontic treatment but also to build a relationship with our patients that puts them at ease and makes the experience enjoyable. Imagine getting straight teeth while actually enjoying going to the orthodontist. This is our goal with every patient we see.

All of our current patients are screened for orthodontic treatment each time they receive a cleaning. Your child’s progress is monitored and any problems are detected as early as possible. When your child is ready for braces, we can schedule you a free meeting with our orthodontic specialists. His evaluation will let you know what treatments your child may need. If your child is not a current patient of ours, you can still call us for a free consultation with our orthodontic specialists.

We take several diagnostic records to assist with the ongoing orthodontic program. These include x-rays of your child’s teeth, photographs of their current positions and a comprehensive clinical examination. This examination allows us to take detailed measurements of your child’s teeth, mouth and features.

These detailed records allow us to create a treatment plan down to the smallest details of tooth position, even when your child is not in our offices. This way we do not need to schedule additional appointments simply for measurements and fittings. These records form the basis upon which we can build a treatment plan.

We want both you and your child to know and understand the treatments we will offer, what they do and why we do them. To this end, we schedule a meeting to discuss with you and your child the issues with their teeth and the ways we fix them.

At this meeting, Dr. Lai will present you with the ideal treatment and any alternatives that may be available. We include several visual aids in order to explain the treatment to your child fully. If you or your child have any questions, we are happy to answer them until you are both completely satisfied.

Once the explanations are complete, a member of our staff will discuss with you the timing of the various meetings and appointments necessary to complete treatment. Any insurance issues and payment options will be discussed here, along with the payment plans we offer. Once you are fully informed, you can make the decision of how to proceed with treatment.

In our continuous effort to provide the very best orthodontic treatment for our patients, we are proud to use PROPEL® in our practice.

PROPEL® “fast tracks” orthodontic treatments for both braces and clear aligners. This exciting technology allows us to get most patients finished in about half the time. While each patient varies, many patients can now have their orthodontic treatment completed in less than a year.

PROPEL® works with the patient’s own biology by stimulating the bone surrounding the teeth; helping the teeth to move faster and more predictably into their ideal position. This allows patients to see their new smiles faster and requires fewer visits to our office.

We provide PROPEL® for Invisalign and braces, offering complimentary consultations to all. If you would like to accelerate your orthodontic treatment today, ask us about PROPEL®! Or check out
