Setting Your Child Up for a Lifetime of Smiles
The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that children have their first orthodontic evaluation by age 7. Early detection and treatment of orthodontic issues can prevent the need for more complex and invasive treatments, such as surgeries, in the future. At Sipkin Orthodontics, we offer early treatment options for children to correct issues such as crowding, crossbites, and protruding teeth. Our team of experienced orthodontists can guide you and your child through the early treatment process and help ensure a healthy and beautiful smile for years to come. Contact us today to schedule a consultation for your child.
Confident Smiles Through Adolescence
Between the ages of 11 and 15 is the most common time for orthodontic treatment – and for good reasons. This is when most permanent teeth have erupted and are in place, making it easier to detect and correct crooked teeth, gaps, and bad bites. Additionally, many negative associations with braces are not present at this age, and children are often willing to wear them to fit in with their peers. Orthodontic treatment during this time also allows us to take advantage of the child’s rapid growth to correct their bite and teeth properly, shorten overall treatment time, and reduce discomfort.
As more adults are seeking orthodontic treatment, we offer a full range of treatments designed specifically for them. Orthodontic treatment improves not only the appearance of your smile but also the health of your teeth and gums. From traditional metal and ceramic braces to clear aligners, Sipkin Orthodontics offers various options to meet adult patients’ needs and desires. Don’t let age hold you back from achieving the beautiful, healthy smile you’ve always wanted. Schedule your free consultation with us today!
Invisalign is a modern alternative to traditional braces that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth. Invisalign is a popular option for adults and professionals for several reasons. The clear aligners are virtually invisible, making them a discreet treatment option that won’t affect your appearance in social or professional settings. The aligners are also removable, allowing you to eat, drink, and brush your teeth without any restrictions. This means you can still enjoy your favorite foods and maintain your regular oral hygiene routine without the inconvenience of traditional braces. Additionally, Invisalign treatment typically requires fewer office visits than traditional braces, making it a more convenient option for busy adults and professionals with hectic schedules. Here at Sipkin Orthodontics, we specialize in treating highly complex cases using Invisalign so that even the most difficult malocclusions can be treated for patients who do not want to wear traditional braces.

Invisalign Teen is a popular option for teenagers who want to straighten their teeth without the hassle of traditional metal braces. Plus, they’re removable, so teens can eat their favorite foods and brush and floss as usual. Invisalign Teen also features a compliance indicator, a small blue dot on the aligners that fades to clear when appropriately worn, helping parents monitor their teen’s treatment progress and ensuring that the aligners are being worn as recommended. If you’re interested in Invisalign Teen for your child, contact us to schedule a complimentary consultation and learn more about this innovative treatment option.
Brace Yourself for a Confident New You.
Metal braces have been a trusted orthodontic treatment for decades, and they have come a long way in terms of design and efficiency. Metal braces are a reliable and cost-effective option for straightening teeth and correcting bite issues. With advancements in technology, the metal braces we use today are much smaller and more efficient than the conventional ones used in the past. Patients can also add a pop of personality with fun-colored elastics. This is a great way to express yourself and make the most of your orthodontic treatment journey.
Combination treatment is a customized approach to orthodontics involving braces, aligners, and orthodontic appliances like palatal expanders. This approach is often recommended for patients with more complex orthodontic needs, such as significant bite issues or multiple alignment problems. Using a combination of treatments can help address these issues more efficiently and effectively, resulting in a beautiful, healthy smile.
Retainers are an essential part of orthodontic treatment that helps keep your teeth in their new and improved positions. After wearing braces or aligners, your teeth need time to settle into their new locations, and retainers are crucial for maintaining these changes. Without retainers, your teeth could shift back to their original positions, undoing all of the progress made during your orthodontic treatment. Wearing retainers as directed by your orthodontist can ensure your teeth stay in their proper place and your smile stays straight and healthy for years to come. At Sipkin Orthodontics, we offer a Retainer Program to help our patients keep their beautiful new smiles long after their orthodontic treatment is complete.

Orthognathic surgery corrects abnormalities in the facial bones, including the jaws and teeth, which can cause difficulties with routine activities like speaking and chewing. It also improves the overall appearance of the facial profile. This procedure, combined with orthodontic treatment, can enhance both the functional and aesthetic aspects of the patient’s bite and facial profile. While orthognathic surgery is not always necessary and many cases can be corrected with orthodontic treatment alone, it can be an effective option for those with more severe abnormalities that cannot be treated with braces. Contact us today to schedule a complimentary consultation with our expert orthodontists to determine the right treatment option for you.
