Your orthodontic health is essential for a beautiful and long-lasting smile. Poor orthodontic health can affect more than just your smile, such as your ability to chew, speak, and sleep. At Avenue Orthodontics, we believe that it is important to be screened for any potential problems and receive treatment if necessary. Orthodontic problems can be treated at any age but certain issues are better treated at an earlier age.
What should I look for?

Why is treatment important?
Orthodontic treatment is important to achieve a healthy, functioning bite as well as an attractive smile. With proper screening and care, Dr. Eleni Michailidis and Dr. Abraham Chahine can stop small orthodontic problems from progressing into serious conditions. We offer many different modes of treatment such as metal braces, clear braces, Invisalign, and dentofacial orthopedics.
Metal braces are an excellent option if you worry about compliance with treatment. Braces can be used to treat the majority of orthodontic issues . Our braces are made in the USA and meet all health standards and regulations. .
If you seek a more discreet treatment option, we also offer clear braces. Our clear braces are created with a tooth colored ceramic material that is comfortable to wear. They resist food staining so that you do not have to worry about what you’re eating. Our high quality clear braces are as effective as metal braces.
Invisalign clear aligner trays straighten your teeth without the discomfort of 24/7 braces and are invisible to the public. They are made with a smooth, non-irritating plastic that precisely moves your teeth into the correct position.
Accelerated Tooth Movement Technology
If you want to expedite your orthodontic treatment, we can adjunct your regular treatment with accelerated orthodontics so that you spend less time in braces. This treatment is an effective way to straighten teeth while reducing the number of office visits.
Dr. Eleni Michailidis and Dr. Chahine also specialize in dentofacial orthopedics, which focuses on influencing proper jaw development and growth. Our office offers several techniques using dentofacial orthopedics, which may be the right treatment option for your young, growing child.
