Treatment Options

You want a really great smile, and you know that an orthodontist can help you get there. Beyond that, things may be a bit of a mystery. You’ve heard of braces, of course, but you know there are other options. What about Invisalign®? Is that the same as clear braces? And what on earth are lingual braces?

We’re here to help. At Avenue Orthodontics, we want to help you make the best choices for you and your family. To do that, you’ll need information on all of your treatment options. This page can be your starting point as you explore orthodontics. We’ve included all of the modern treatment options that we offer in our office in Whitestone, NY.

What Are the Options?

Braces have long been the mainstay of orthodontic treatment. They’ve been used for decades, but recent advances in technology, including low-profile brackets and high-tech wires, have made them more comfortable and effective than ever before.

For those with significant jaw issues, such as alignment problems, orthodontics can be combined with jaw surgery to provide the best outcome. We’ve seen this approach change lives. Your orthodontist collaborates with your surgeon and remains an integral part of your treatment before and after surgery, to help you achieve the very best outcome.

Orthodontics For Kids and Teens

Did you know that orthodontic evaluation is recommended at age 7? Many types of orthodontic problems can be prevented or corrected more easily if they’re caught early enough. If you or your child’s dentist have any questions about the alignment of the teeth, we’d be happy to see your child for a complimentary evaluation.

We’d Like to Meet You!

It takes a trained orthodontist to evaluate your particular needs and help you decide what options would be right for you. Are you ready to take the next step toward your own beautiful smile?

At Avenue Orthodontics, we offer a complimentary orthodontic evaluation. Come and meet one of our two orthodontists, Dr. Abraham Chahine and Dr. Eleni Michailidis, in our office in Whitestone. Both of them trained in excellent programs and have won numerous awards, but what really sets them apart is the consistent recommendations from their patients. Your smile is as unique as you are, so you need an orthodontist who cares about you as a person. We’re here to help you make the right choices for you and your family.
