I would just like to advise anyone out there interested in 6 month smiles.. NOT to do it. In my opinion they are a gimmick performed by dentist who go for a two day course!!. I got 6 month smiles and my teeth are worse off than they were. My archs are narrower , my smile looks tight and I have... READ MORE

Hi everyone my name is Greg and I am in the process of fixing my smile. My process began with my primary dentist Dr. Albert Lee. He listened to my concerns and formulated a plan to achieve my goals. Basically he created a road map for me to follow and now I am on the orthodontics part of his... READ MORE

I have just had my metal brace removed from the teeth on the lower jaw and they are all lovely and straight. However, after using his drill, to remove the bonding material, the 8 teeth are now rough to the touch. I could not get a straight answer from him as to whether this is a result of the... READ MORE

I come from a big family of 6 kids, so getting braces as a child was unrealistic. We were poor. I am now working two jobs and am finally able to afford them myself. I went to the orthodontist today for a consultation and Invisalign is out of the question, because I need expanders. So I set up an... READ MORE

I've been to other orthodontist offices and seen several doctors, weren't too convinced about any of them. But then I found upper east side orthodontist offices and it is by far the best I have been to. Receptionist are very nice and welcoming. also this office is very flexible with their... READ MORE

I had braces at 15 because of my gaps on top and bottom. when I got them off i would wear my retianer at night only and my teeth eventually shifted back to normal:( luckily the bottom teeths gaps didn't open again. I went to get a few consults on what to do and after considering all my... READ MORE

My case was very complicated. I had lost a baby tooth at 30 and still had the adult tooth up in my pallet. I needed surgery before the brace and again later because I had every complication you can imagine. But the Dr was determined to have me happy with the results. I ended up in regular... READ MORE

Hey guys, I have been researching about braces since i was 15 years old. My mother could not afford braces when i was younger and to be honest i kind of got use to my teeth being extremely crowded and crooked on the lower half. My top teeth aren't that bad although i plan on getting two... READ MORE

My experience at Upper Eastside Orthodontists has been superb from the outset. I prefer early morning appointments, and UEO staff always accommodates me in that regard, with no hassle. This morning, I found a parking place right outside the door to UEO, but I had to be out of the space by 8:00am... READ MORE

Very bad experience with Dr. Newhart and his workers. They are money hungry unprofessional, rude, dishonest, and will yell at you and treat you like a child if there is a disagreement. Every time I was there it just always felt like they were money hungry and just out to optimize money intake.... READ MORE

I decided to have orthodontic work and the orthodontist extracted 4 teeth 2 on top and 2 on the bottom. I started to suffer Sleep apnea symptoms and now have a documented sleep disorder. I had a cross-bite and should have been referred to an oral surgeon first. Adult palate expander do work!!... READ MORE

I wanted to get my bottom teeth straightened because as I have gotten older my once perfect teeth started to shift, almost as if they were turning towards each other. I have always had very tight teeth and when I got my wisdom teeth, they came in on their sides, it really crowded my lower teeth... READ MORE

I had a gap in my front teeth that bothered me my WHOLE life!. After Dr Akhavan treated my son, i was so happy with his smile, and her office that I asked her about my gap. My general dentist had quoted me about $4000 for invisalign but she said all I needed was a retainer! the treatment was... READ MORE

I am 27 years old and my teeth are aligned in 2 months... and bite has been raised...cross bite has been corrected too..I have been wearing my plates very religiously...and it was very tough...

I've had crooked teeth my entire teenage life but never wanted braces. I decided I'll just get them, but I'll get Ceramic. It was the decision ever! They hurt way lest than my metal ones, they don't really stain at all unless you don't brush you're teeth, & they look great in the mouth. I'm... READ MORE

I am 20 years old and I never really seriously thought about getting braces before. Simply because my flaws were really minor.. I have slight over crowding on my bottom row of teeth, which was caused by my wisdom teeth growing in (I have since removed all four of them), and I also have a very... READ MORE

I was looking at something else but decided to look into braces and found that there weren't a lot of comments on it, so I decided to write my story about my experience and my opinions. Hope you enjoy :D First of all, when I was a kid, I drank lots and lots of milk (like... 3 cups a day). My... READ MORE

Here I am age 47 with my braces off for six months now, and my mouth still feels unnatural. I just didn't know what I was in for with constant difficulties from the braces and retainer. My teeth were crooked but solid prior to braces. Now my teeth are straight but weaker than heck. Probably... READ MORE

Correction of the results of traditional orthodontics. He does functional orthodontics which means he takes the entire face into account not just the teeth. He will reverse the retraction that was done after extraction of teeth. Extraction of teeth for braces causes underdevelopment of the... READ MORE
