“Orthodontic treatment is a team effort; the doctor, parent and child all must fully cooperate to achieve the most optimal final result. The efficiency and speed of treatment is dependent on timely appointments, cooperation with wearing elastics, minimal break- age and proper oral hygiene. It is crucial that parents maintain active participation throughout treatment by also enforcing the specific guidelines and instructions provided by the doctor. The short-term sacrifice will be worth the long-term gain.”

“When it comes time to consider braces for your child, the main factor is the child's growth and development. Not only physical development, but mental as well. We obviously need to have certain permanent teeth to be present before we start, but a child's mental readiness is just as important. In order for treatment to go as quickly and predictably as possible, your child must be ready to care for the braces, and have the motivation to want straight teeth.”

“As a pediatric dentist, my goal is to identify orthodontic issues arising, by evaluating the growth and development of each child and refer for proper care at the most optimal time. ... Parents should understand that every case and every patient is different in regards to treatment needs, methods of treatment, as well as timing for treatment to begin. With good patient compliance and proper home care, treatment can progress most efficiently."

“When Invisalign was first introduced it couldn’t be used for most teen patients. That’s all changed. Today there is an Invisalign product designed especially for teens, and the most experienced Invisalign providers use it to treat all types of occlusions and achieve excellent results.”
-Dr. Monisha Iyer
“The greatest concern many patients have about orthodontic treatment is the amount of time they’ll need to spend in braces or Invisalign. We now have the ability to safely accelerate tooth movement, which allows us to reduce treatment times by 30 to 50 percent.”

Dr. James TenBrook is a world-renowned orthodontist and creator of the revolutionary T1 braces. The design of the T1 braces was hand-crafted with the patient's comfort, hygiene and treatment time in mind. The low-friction technology reduces the forces on the teeth, allowing for quicker and healthier tooth movement. For the patient, that means less time in braces.
