Are you looking for a more discreet orthodontic option than the traditional metal and wire braces of the past? Here at our New Canaan orthodontic office, Dr. Victor Pardi and the rest of our staff are happy to offer you lingual braces as one of our most useful and effective orthodontic treatment options, as well as one of the most discreet. Lingual braces are put in place on the back of your teeth, so that they are facing the tongue and are not visible to others. There are a number of advantages to lingual braces. The main reason why most patients choose them is because they are virtually invisible to others. They are especially popular with people who choose to undergo orthodontic treatment as adults. While lingual braces are harder to clean, there is also the aesthetic advantage that any white spots or discoloration will be on the back of your teeth rather than the front.

Some drawbacks to lingual braces are that they are difficult to adjust to. Some patients find it challenging to speak and eat with their lingual braces for the first few weeks of treatment. Lingual braces may also require longer treatment times and longer time spent in the orthodontist’s chair, since Dr. Pardi is essentially working upside down when adjusting lingual braces. These are the kinds of pros and cons that need to be considered when you are deciding on lingual braces or alternative orthodontic treatment options. The experts at our New Canaan orthodontic office would be happy to make treatment recommendations for you during your next visit with us.

Having a straight smile does not always stem from cosmetic desires. Orthodontic treatment may be desired or deemed necessary because of a malocclusion, or misalignment of teeth, that affects a person’s overall bite. This can cause complications with chewing, eating, and even speaking or breathing in some cases. Malocclusions are often fixed at a younger age because the teeth are still forming and moving on their own as the individual grows. Adults have not seen any such developmental changes in some time and adult bones are denser than those of children and adolescents. Some adults may have even lost permanent teeth, which can also affect or complicate orthodontic treatment. But Victor Pardi, DDS is here to use his years’ worth of expertise to solve any such issues or complications you may have in order to bring you the smile you need and the smile you have always wanted. Adult orthodontics is not impossible with this New Canaan orthodontist. This dental treatment aims to shift your teeth by gently guiding them slowly over a period of months to a few years depending on the severity of the malocclusion. For adults, this time period may be extended due to the density of adult bones or other complications. But the process is still completely doable. Whether you go with traditional wire braces or use Invisalign aligners, you will visit Victor Pardi, DDS periodically to check on your progression and to further the process step by step.
You will have the smile you have always dreamed of before you know it after visiting this New Canaan orthodontist. Victor Pardi, DDS can provide you or anyone in your family with the proper orthodontic treatment necessary in order to achieve that healthy winning smile.
