When it comes to choosing a Westchester orthodontist and an orthodontic treatment plan for yourself or a loved one, there are many factors to consider. Below are a few questions to consider before choosing an orthodontist and starting braces.
Does the orthodontist have experience? Dr. Schechtman has over 25 years of experience, with his certification in orthodontics from Columbia University. He is American Board of Orthodontists certified (only half of orthodontists are board certified) and is involved with many professional affiliations.
Does the orthodontist have a smile design philosophy? What are the elements the doctor looks for in designing the treatment plan? (Also see Dr. Schechtman’s Smile Analysis)
How long will I have treatment? Dr. Schechtman recommends using SureSmile as it is able to accurately track the path of treatment – often times allowing you to reduce your length of treatment by up to 35%. Get your best smile faster!
Can you show me how my teeth will look after treatment, before we begin? Only select orthodontists use SureSmile digital technology that creates an accurate simulation of your future treatment.
SureSmile is a 3-D digital technology for orthodontists that creates virtual treatment simulations you can see before beginning treatment. SureSmile also aligns teeth precisely using robotically bent wires. SureSmile patients have higher grading scores than conventionally treated patients and finish in 30% less time.
Will I have options for treatment programs? In addition to Invisalign and traditional orthodontic treatment, Dr. Schechtman offers a wide variety of orthodontic treatment and services. Dr. Schechtman is the only orthodontist to offer SureSmile in Westchester and Putnam counties in New York.
SureSmile can speed up the time needed for braces by as much as 35%, in conjunction with any type of braces. Additionally, we offer In-Ovation C Clear Braces, lingual braces (braces behind your teeth), as well as other treatment options. Dr. Schechtman, our award-winning orthodontist in Jefferson Valley and Purchase, NY is able to determine the best course of action for your treatment program based on your unique smile.
