125th Street Braces provides Inwood orthodontics for patients who want braces and straighter, healthier teeth. Our dentist, Dr. Marvin Baptiste, is a graduate of Columbia University. He served as the 2008 President of the Student National Dental Association and has been highlighted in Ebony Magazine’s “30 Young Leaders Under 30”.
We offer traditional braces as well as clear braces. Clear braces are a new way for patients to have braces without any of the unsightly hardware of traditional braces. Clear braces use a series of clear plastic aligners to gently and effectively straighten teeth over a period of time. Invisalign is one brand of clear braces that we often use. We find patients are thrilled with the results of Invisalign. For Invisalign we create a custom made plastic aligner fit to the teeth as well as a series of plastic aligners given to each individual over the course of treatment. Each set of aligners is worn for 2 weeks before being swapped out for the next. Over time, teeth gently shift into the desired position.
Clear braces can also be removed for photos, special occasions and brushing and flossing. Our traditional braces use brackets, spacers and hardware to move teeth into position over time. Both traditional and Invisalign braces take about the same amount of time to straighten teeth.
