Which Treatment Is Best For Me? | Advance Orthodontics Blog

What’s Best For Me

Orthodontics for Children

For children that do require early treatment, Dr. Karotkin designs a treatment plan using minimal appliances to make the treatment as quick, easy, and painless as possible.

Orthodontics for Teens

The teenage years are the most common time to undergo orthodontic care. Treatment is usually started once the vast majority of the permanent teeth have grown in.

Orthodontics for Adults

It’s never too late to improve your smile, straighten your teeth, or correct your bite. Many adults can be treated with Invisalign® or “clear braces” (which are actually ceramic, tooth-colored braces) to achieve a quick, easy, and comfortable improvement of their smiles.


Invisalign® is a way to straighten your teeth and correct your bite without braces. It consists of a series of clear aligners that fit over the teeth and are removable for eating and oral hygiene activities. We also offer Invisalign Teen®!

Quick Braces

For many patients, a case which would have taken between 18 and 30 months using traditional techniques can be completed in only 6 to 9 months. This is not the procedure offered by most orthodontists and dentists who advertise short-term, fast, or 6-month braces.
