The age-old question for all parents out there: When is the appropriate time or age for my son or daughter to wear braces?

The Cuozzo Orthodontic approach is to start treatment at the correct time, which is when the patient has lost the majority of their baby teeth. This gives our patients the fastest treatment time possible with the least amount of office visits. You should expect a beautiful smile and your orthodontic treatment completed ON TIME. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children have their first orthodontic evaluation at age 7 or 8. This does NOT mean that all children need intervention at this age. However, there are instances where early orthodontic treatment is indicated.

For parents reading this, what do you think are the most common misconceptions that you run into on a regular basis, and can you help clarify?

One of the most common misconceptions I hear in my office is that braces cause staining or marks on the teeth. Braces do not cause staining and marks. Poor brushing habits during orthodontic treatment are the cause of irreversible staining and marks on your teeth. In my office, we recommend that our patients brush for 3 to 5 minutes, 3 or 4 times per day. It is also recommended that patients see their dentist every 6 months for hygiene visits to check for cavities.

If you were advising someone about selecting an orthodontist, what would be some of the criteria or things you might look for to narrow down the search?

First, you want to make sure he or she is truly a board certified orthodontist. An orthodontist has two or three years of special training after dental school. To find a board certified orthodontist or to check for board certification, you can visit www.AmericanBoardOrtho.com.

With the economy being what it is, are there any payment terms and plans available to patients who may need a little help?

In my office, we offer a plan that requires a small down payment followed by interest-free monthly payments over the course of 18 or 24 months.

Can you share some of the new advances in technology or inroads made over the last 10 to 15 years?

One of the most effective new advancements that technology has provided is the ability to take 3D X-rays in our office. Having a 3D image is a valuable  diagnostic tool that aids in seeing the exact position of an impacted tooth or the level of bone for the placement of an implant.
