- Cutting Edge Technology
We bring you the best new technology available in orthodontics today. We are constantly striving to enhance our treatment methods in an attempt to improve the faces, smiles, and bites for all of our patients. We use the highest quality materials and the most modern techniques available to give you the smile you have always dreamed of. Our average treatment time for full braces is 18 – 20 months.
- Self ligating brackets – The Damon™ System – and high technology archwires work together to minimize the removal of permanent teeth and thereby, shorten treatment time.
- Fully digital radiographs – allow immediate capture of diagnostic information with less radiation exposure as much as 90%.
- Digital imaging and computerized patient education tools – Each of our operatories has a computer workstation for digital charting, x-ray viewing, and patient education.
- State of the Art Sterilization – All instruments are sterilized between patients at the highest possible standards using the most up-to-date equipment available.
- Emphasis on early interceptive treatment
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that your child get an orthodontic check up no later than age seven. While your child's teeth may appear straight, there could be a problem only an orthodontist can detect. Of course, the check-up may reveal that your child's bite is fine with no treatment being needed. For each patient who needs treatment there's an ideal time for treatment to begin in order to achieve the best results. If early treatment is indicated, it gives Dr. Varghese a chance to:
- guide jaw growth
- lower the risk of trauma to front teeth
- correct harmful habits
- improve appearance and self-esteem
- guide permanent teeth into a more favorable positions
- A fun and upbeat atmosphere for patients and parents
We have a family oriented practice and are dedicated to providing energetic and fun-loving service for each patient. Much care was taken in the design of our new office to make each of your visits enjoyable and a truly positive experience.
- Flexible financing options
Orthodontic treatment is an excellent investment in the overall dental, medical, and psychological well being of both children and adults. Dollar for dollar when you consider the lifetime benefits of orthodontic treatment, it is truly a great value. We are committed to developing a financing option that fits within your budget.
- Insurance Acceptance
We are experienced in working with insurance companies. We work with all types of insurance policies and want to be sure you receive all the benefits to which your family is entitled.
- Adult braces and Accelerated Adult Braces
Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age and about 30% of all patients today are adults. We also offer Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics for adults (also know as Wilckodontics), a combined periodontal and orthodontic treatment that will dramatically shorten your orthodontic treatment time. With this procedure, most orthodontic cases in adults can be completed 3 to 4 times faster than would be possible with conventional orthodontics.
- Family Discounts
When a patient becomes part of our practice, we feel a responsibility to the entire family. We will examine and monitor younger siblings at no charge until the time is right for them to start treatment. When any additional family member begins treatment there will be a $200.00 or more reduction in their total treatment fee
