Straight Teeth, Spectacular Smile

Braces Can Restore Your Bite

Crooked teeth can be unsightly, but esthetic concerns are only part of the problem. If your top teeth and bottom teeth don’t align properly when you bite down—a condition called malocclusion—your ability to eat and speak comfortably can be compromised and you may even develop temporomandibular joint (TMJ) issues. Traditional metal braces have long been used to straighten teeth and remain popular due to their reliable results, durability, and affordability. As a graduate of the International Association for Orthodontics, Dr. Neil Hoss has had special training in orthodontic treatments and is exceptionally qualified to straighten your smile with braces inTolland, CT.

Orthodontics for Kids, Teenagers and Adults

Dr. Hoss typically recommends braces for preteens whose teeth are becoming crooked, as their teeth are more easily straightened while their head and mouth are still growing. The process can take up to three years but delivers dependable results in the form of beautifully straight and aligned teeth! Braces stay in the mouth for the duration of the treatment, which is an advantage over retainers and other appliances used in orthodontics that can be easily misplaced. While you may associate braces with children and teens, we want you to know that a growing number of adults are also choosing them. They can provide the same great results for you as they do for your children. No matter which member of your family needs braces, Dr. Hoss will place them with his characteristic precision and gentleness.

See Nothing Except Spectacular Results

If you want straighter teeth without the visible metal wires and brackets of traditional braces, we can offer you a more discreet but equally effective solution. Invisalign® provides the benefits of metal braces through discreet, transparent plastic aligners that are virtually unnoticeable to others. You may even forget you have them in! Custom-sized to fit you, Invisalign’s durable clear aligners slip over your teeth and gradually move them back into their correct alignment. You keep the aligners in your mouth up to 22 hours a day, only removing them when you need to brush, floss or eat. If you’re suffering from severe crossbite or other extreme conditions, Dr. Hoss may recommend traditional braces as the preferred course of treatment.
