Orthodontic Treatments

Orthodontist Services by Hayes & Hayes, LLC in Williamsport, PA

With a range of orthodontic treatment options from Hayes & Hayes, LLC, we can help you achieve a bright, beautiful smile that will last a lifetime and also help improve your over-all health.

Treatments we offer include, but are not limited to:

We help patients who have: esthetic concerns, difficulty chewing food, misaligned teeth, bruxism (grinding teeth), nasal airway problems/mouth breathing, poor facial growth, missing/mal-positioned teeth, jaw joint problems/facial pain, and much more.

“Early intervention” (ages 6 thru 10 years) with dento-facial orthopedic problems helps to reduce the severity and complexity of future treatment with braces. Patients can experience a reduction in impacted canines, anterior open bite, and mouth breathing for improved overall health.10,13,15,16

“Palatal expansion orthopedics” is frequently an important part of “early intervention.” Palatal expansion is helpful to normalize the shape of the upper jaw bone so that there better harmony with a well-formed lower jaw bone.10,13,15,16,17 Unfortunately, the upper jaw for most patients – since approximately for the last 150 years or so—has tended to grow deficient in width; the etiology for this deficiency is largely speculation at this time.13,17 However, it is not speculation that the deficiency can lead to breathing disordered sleep, mouth breathing, poor facial growth, and other serious problems. Adults with deficient upper arches are frequently prescribed CPAP.

Stainless Steel Braces

We offer a variety of braces. Our miniature, very low friction braces are made of stainless steel and are bonded to the patient's teeth. Colored elastic ties can be used, if desired. Braces allow the orthodontist to move a patient's teeth in a three dimensional manner.

Clear Braces

Invisalign by Hayes & Hayes, LLC in Williamsport, PA

If you want to have straighter teeth but are scared at the thought of wearing traditional metal braces, clear braces could be the solution you have been looking for.

Invisible Teeth Aligners

This treatment is similar to the Invisalign© system. Each aligner is individually manufactured with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into place. Clear aligners are especially appropriate for minor tooth movements and adult re-treatments.
