In this gallery you can see examples of real patients that Dr. Emma has treated in her Garden City office using traditional braces. Whatever the orthodontic issue–crossbite, crowding, deep bite, open bite, overjet (protruding upper teeth), spacing, or underbite (protruding lower jaw), Dr. Emma takes a personalized approach to each and every patient to find the solution that will produce the most beautiful smile possible, with as much comfort and in as little time as possible.
Sam at 7 years old had a small upper jaw and underbite. A palatal expander was used to widen his upper jaw and a face mask with elastics worn part-time after school and sleeping moved his upper jaw forward.His bite was corrected in only 10 months!! Samantha
Samantha at age 12 had a right canine or “fang” as she affectionately called it, that stuck out.Her second tooth on the right side was chipping from hitting banging against the bottom teeth . Braces in less than 18 months moved that “fang tooth” into position and corrected the bite so the front teeth would hit properly and not chip any more. Muhammad
Muhammad had severely protruded front teeth that prevented him from closing his lips. He was very self-conscious and wouldn’t smile. After 28 months wearing braces and removal of two upper premolar teeth, Mohammad is smiling all the time. It did wonders for his self-esteem and confidence. Mitchell
Mitchell sucked his thumb for as long as they could remember. It caused his front teeth to stick out too far. In two short years, braces and elastics gave Mitchell this fantastic smile! Sophia
Sophia was starting high school next year. Her teeth were overlapped and crowded. When she bit down her bottom teeth hit into the roof of her mouth and sometimes it would cut her gums. She now walks the halls of the high school with a gorgeous smile. Braces on and off in under 2 years! Daniel
Daniel at age 13 had crowded teeth and protruded front teeth. As a very active kid, his front teeth were bumped more than one time playing sports with friends. We needed to quickly correct his protrusion before he damaged his front teeth. Top and bottom braces straightened things out in 28 months. Brian
Brian was in middle school and did not want to wear braces in high school. His smile was very narrow and his teeth were overlapping and crowded.In under 2 years, Brian’s braces were on and off and he started high school brace-free as promised! Jaden
Jaden’s front teeth overlapped and his bad bite was causing the edges of his front teeth to chip.20 months of braces and Jaden’s bite is better and his smile is beaming!
