No matter your age, we have orthodontic treatment options that can be custom fit not only to your teeth – but to your life, school and work.

EARLY DIAGNOSIS

IS IMPORTANT
young-kids-2 We encourage parents to schedule their child’s initial exam at age 7. In some cases, Dr. Halabi will recommend early, interceptive treatment. With early treatment he can take the least invasive approach to address skeletal issues that, left unchecked, may require more invasive approaches in the future. However, in many cases, we recommend putting off treatment until the child has all of his or her adult teeth. If waiting for treatment is recommended, we’ll see your child once or twice a year to monitor their growth and assess their needs. These very important growth and development appointments are provided free of charge.

Options for Adolescents

Between the ages of 11 and 15 is the most common time for orthodontic treatment, and for good reasons. By 12, most, if not all, of the permanent teeth are in place, and crooked teeth, gaps and bad bites are highly visible. We can often take advantage of the remaining growth to make the necessary orthodontic corrections to create an exceptional smile for your child. Since many of their friends are in braces at the same time, most adolescents LOVE sharing the braces experience.  After school visits at Halabi Orthodontics feels a lot like friends getting together with friends.

OPTIONS FOR TEENS & ADULTS

CUSTOMIZED BRACES, INVISALIGN & MORE
Whether you choose metal or clear braces, hidden braces or Invisalign, at Halabi Orthodontics you’ll have the benefit of Customized Smile Design. Like fingerprints, your smile is unique - and so is our computerized system that combines digital orthodontic treatment planning with specially made brackets and wires tailored to your specific dental anatomy. It's called Insignia, and it's one of several leading edge treatment approaches available here. The process is simple. First, we scan of your teeth. Then, imaging software translates that into a 3-D representation of your bite. Using Dr. Halabi’s diagnosis and treatment plan, your braces and wires are custom-fabricated. You get your new smile!

The Damon Smile System is a fast, comfortable treatment option that gives Dr. Halabi the ability to straighten your teeth comfortably. Damon braces don’t require elastics to hold the wire in place. Instead, the wire moves freely, and your teeth move quickly and efficiently. With the Damon Smile System, Dr. Halabi provides:
  • Treatment without tightening
  • Faster treatment times
  • Fuller, wider smiles

BRACES THAT ARE HIDDEN

BEHIND YOUR TEETH
Hidden (lingual) braces are bonded to the inside of your teeth where they can do their work without being visible. They take some getting used to, but are a popular alternative to conventional braces for anyone not interested in showing off their braces. For most patients, clear braces or clear aligners provide the esthetic look they want during treatment and the smile they’ve always wanted when treatment is complete. But for some, the hidden approach offered by lingual braces is just what the doctor ordered.

INVISALIGN

STRAIGHT TEETH WITHOUT BRACES
The Invisalign® System straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable aligners. It's virtually invisible, which means you can straighten your teeth without announcing it to the world. Invisalign moves your teeth in small steps to the desired final position. Each of your aligners is precisely customized to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. You switch to a new set of aligners every couple of weeks and only remove the to eat, brush and floss. Before you know it you’ll be smiling like you never have before! At your complimentary consultation you can find out if Invisalign is a good option for you. It’s one of a number of virtually undetectable options we offer and is available for both teens and adults.
