The Dangers Of Do it Yourself Orthodontics

by Dr. Boris Arbitman Tuesday, June 19, 2018 6:41 AM

It’s official: Do It Yourself Orthodontics have gone viral on the internet. There are numerous videos showing how you can simply close gaps between your teeth or space them out all on your own. They describe DIY techniques as simple as wrapping rubber bands around your teeth to more complex procedures like mail ordering your own impressions to get clear aligners - all without ever visiting an orthodontist. Many people are trying these DIY methods as a way to save money while achieving the smile they’ve always wanted, but what they don’t realize is that they can have awful and unhealthy consequences.

 

Building Self Esteem As Well As A Smile

by Dr. Boris Arbitman Tuesday, February 13, 2018 1:30 PM

There are many studies about the benefits of orthodontic treatment with regard to increased self-esteem. Prior to treatment, many children smile with their mouth closed, or don’t smile at all, because they are self-conscious about their teeth. Post-treatment, they’re more comfortable not only with their smile, but also their overall appearance. This increases confidence, which carries over to their interactions with peers and adults.

How to Know If Your Child Needs Orthodontics

by Dr. Boris Arbitman Thursday, April 27, 2017 11:25 AM
I’m often asked about the best time to have children evaluated for orthodontic treatment. The challenge is that (as we all know!) every kid is different. However, a good milestone is around age seven, when a child’s jaw is developed enough, and he or she has enough permanent teeth for an orthodontist to tell if there are any current issues... or any that may come up down the line. Read more about early treatment in this new blog post.
