Invisalign In Paris
At Curiel Orthodontics, we feels that everybody, no matter how old they are, deserves a bright and beautiful smile. For this reason, we provide Invisalign® treatment to patients who require cosmetic orthodontics.

Dr. Curiel their staff work hard to make sure that each patient is pleased with the results of their treatment. Whether you have a child in need of orthodontic work, or you’re an adult looking to enhance your own smile, you can rest assured that curiel orthodontics offers a treatment to fit your needs.

Invisalign® is an ideal method for helping adult patients correct crooked teeth without the disruptions in appearance that come with traditional metal braces. To learn more about this cutting-edge orthodontic treatment, keep reading or call us today to find out whether Invisalign® is right for you.

What Is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® is a teeth-straightening method designed with aesthetics in mind. Your friends, family and co-workers never even have to find out you have braces. The Invisalign® system is made up of transparent plastic aligners that are difficult to see when they’re in place. Over time, the aligners move teeth into straighter positions.

Unlike traditional metal braces, there are no brackets or wires to adjust, and you won’t have to sacrifice your appearance now just to achieve a better one later.

What Can I Expect from Invisalign® Treatment?

During your consultation, Dr. Curiel will assess the condition of your teeth and determine whether Invisalign® would be a good solution. They will also address any questions or concerns. Afterward, images and impressions are taken of your teeth, and a 3D model is created. This helps Dr. Curiel develop an optimal plan for straightening your teeth. This will also enable them to determine how long the entire treatment will take.

Each aligner is part of a series designed specifically for you. The aligners must be worn all day and night, but they may be removed for meals and oral hygiene routines. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before moving on to the next one in the series. This ensures that the positioning of your teeth continues to improve according to your custom treatment plan. Throughout this time, Dr. Curiel will have you come in for checkups approximately every eight weeks to make sure the process is going smoothly.

What Are the Advantages of Using Invisalign®?

At the end of treatment, the results of Invisalign® will be just like those provided by metal braces. However, there are numerous advantages to Invisalign® that traditional braces can’t deliver. Some of these include:

• You can still enjoy all of the foods that are off-limits with metal braces.

• Aligners are clear and discreet

• You can maintain your normal oral hygiene routine

• The smooth aligners offer greater comfort and less irritation

• Fewer appointments mean more free time

Labial Clear Damon
System
We use The Damon System is not just about revolutionary braces and wires, it's a whole new way of treating patients.

Virtually invisible, Damon Clear has clear advantages over traditional braces and aligners. Damon Clear is part of the innovative Damon System, which combines tieless braceswith high technology archwires that are clinically proven to move teeth fast and comfortably with truly spectacular smile and facial results.

Traditional treatment often requires removal of healthy teeth and/or the use of palatal expanders to make space. This approach is often uncomfortable, takes longer, and can leave a narrower arch and a flat profile. Damon smiles are full, natural 10-tooth smiles achieved with light biologically-sensible forces, and are specifically designed to improve the overall facial result of each patient.  

Damon Clear brackets have no visible metal parts or elastic ties that can yellow during treatment making them more discrete and resistant to staining and discoloration throughout your treatment. While treatment time can vary, clinical studies demonstrate that Damon System treatment is up to six months faster than traditional braces.
3D Retainers
You have transformed your smile ! Now you can keep it looking good with discreet retainer !

When your braces have been removed we will give you a Retainer to keep your teeth straight. There are two reasons that we give all of our patients retainers. The first reason is that the teeth are held in the bone by ligaments that are elastic and have "memory". The teeth remember their original crooked positions and want to go back to that position. This is called relapse.

The second reason is that we all get older and as we age, the teeth tend to shift. This happens to most people regardless of whether they have ever had braces or not. Retainers are not a guarantee that your teeth will never move. Remember, we all age, even your teeth. Orthodontic treatment can straighten the teeth but we cannot prevent you from aging.

However, the retainer will keep the teeth as straight as possible and help minimize both the orthodontic relapse as well as the aging changes. Leaving the retainers out for even a short period of time can allow the teeth to shift, even years after the braces are removed.

Laser Recontouring
We are excited to offer the benefits of diode laser treatments to our patients receiving orthodontic treatment. With the use of a specialized diode laser, we are able to efficiently and comfortably remove excess gum tissue.

The best part is that we can usually do the entire treatment with only topical anesthetic with no need for needles or shots.

We simply apply a small amount of the gel topical anesthetic to the gums for a few minutes and then remove the needed tissue with the laser. Recovery usually takes 1-3 days and patients describe the healing process similar to eating a hot cheese pizza.

Sleep Apnea
Obstructive Sleep Apnea, or OSA, arises from what is basically a mechanical problem. During sleep the patient’s tongue falls back against his or her soft palate, and the soft palate and uvula fall back against the back of the throat, effectively closing the airway. Result: when the sleeper expands the chest to inhale, no air enters the lungs.  
 
Several types of sleep apnea exist, but the most common type is obstructive sleep apnea, which occurs when your throat muscles intermittently relax and block your airway during sleep. The most noticeable sign of obstructive sleep apnea is snoring.   
 
Anyone can develop obstructive sleep apnea, although it most commonly affects middle-aged and older adults and people who are overweight. Obstructive sleep apnea treatment may involve using a device to keep your airway open or using a mouthpiece to thrust your jaw forward during sleep. Some people undergo a procedure to change the structure of their nose, mouth or throat.

Signs and symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea

• Excessive daytime sleepiness 

• Loud snoring 

• Observed episodes of breathing cessation during sleep 

• Abrupt awakenings accompanied by shortness of breath 

• Awakening with a dry mouth or sore throat 

• Awakening with chest pain 

• Morning headache 

• Difficulty concentrating during the day 

• Experiencing mood changes, such as depression or irritability 

• Difficulty staying asleep (insomnia)

When to see a doctor?

Consult a medical professional if you experience, or if your partner observes, the following:

• Snoring loud enough to disturb your sleep or that of others

• Shortness of breath that awakens you from sleep

• Intermittent pauses in your breathing during sleep

• Excessive daytime drowsiness, which may cause you to fall asleep while you’re working, watching television or even driving a vehicle

 

Many people don’t think of snoring as a sign of something potentially serious, and not everyone who snores has obstructive sleep apnea. However, be sure to talk to your doctor if you experience loud snoring, especially snoring that’s punctuated by periods of silence. With obstructive sleep apnea, snoring usually is loudest when you sleep on your back, and it quiets when you turn on your side.
Ask your doctor about any sleep problem that leaves you chronically fatigued, sleepy and irritable. There are many people with sleep apnea who have not been diagnosed or received treatment. A sleep medicine physician can diagnose obstructive sleep apnea using an in-lab sleep study or a home sleep apnea test. Sleep apnea is manageable using continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy, the front-line treatment for sleep apnea, oral appliance therapy or surgery.

KIDS & TEENS

recommendations
The American Association of Orthodontits recommends that a child gets his first orthodontist checkup by age seven.

This allows us to identify any present problems in the jaw, teeth and face while also developing a comprehensive treatment plan that combines orthodontics with dentofacial orthopedics.

Two Phase Treatment

WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF TWO-PHASE ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT?

Two-phase orthodontic treatment is a specialized process that combines tooth straightening and physical, facial changes. The purpose of two-phase treatment is to maximize the opportunity to accomplish the ideal healthy, functional, and aesthetic result that will remain stable throughout your child's life.

WHAT IF TREATMENT IS PUT OFF?

Putting off treatment can result in a need for more invasive treatment later in life that may not completely fix your child's smile. Early treatment is most effective for achieving lasting results.

PHASE ONE

A Foundation for a Lifetime of Beautiful Smiles.
The goal of Phase One treatment is to help the jaw develop in a way that will accommodate all of the permanent teeth and improve the way the upper and lower jaws fit together. Children often exhibit early signs of jaw problems as they grow and develop. An upper jaw that is growing too much or is too narrow can be recognized at an early age. If children over the age of six are found to have this jaw discrepancy, they are candidates for early orthodontic treatment. Also, if children around the age of eight have crowded front teeth, early treatment can prevent the need to extract permanent teeth later.

Dr. Curiel did many years of intensive research specifically in dentofacial orthopedics; he wrote and published his Master’s thesis in orthopedic therapy, receiving summa cum laude which is the highest recognition for this work.

At Curiel Orthodontics, we use special appliances to properly move facial irregularities into perfection. Orthopedic treatment can be done during or before a patient receives orthodontic treatment with braces.

• Planning now can save your child's smile later Children benefit tremendously from early-phase treatment. Receiving early treatment may prevent the removal of permanent teeth later in life, or the need for surgical procedures to realign the jaws.

• Making records to determine your child's unique treatment Orthodontic records will be necessary to determine the type of appliances to be used, the duration of treatment time, and the frequency of visits. Records consist of models of the teeth, X-rays, and photographs. During your child's initial consultation, the doctor will take records to determine if early treatment is necessary.

RESTING PERIOD

In this phase, the remaining permanent teeth are left alone as they erupt. Retaining devices may not be recommended if they would interfere with eruption. It is best to allow the existing permanent teeth some freedom of movement. A successful first phase will have created room for permanent teeth to find an eruption path. Otherwise, they may become impacted or severely displaced.

• Monitoring the teeth's progress At the end of the first phase of treatment, teeth are not in their final positions. This will be determined and accomplished in the second phase of treatment. Selective removal of certain primary (baby) teeth may be in the best interest of enhancing eruption during this resting phase. Therefore, periodic recall appointments for observation are necessary, usually on a six-month basis.

PHASE TWO

Stay healthy and look attractive The goal of the second phase is to make sure each tooth has an exact location in the mouth where it is in harmony with the lips, cheeks, tongue, and other teeth. When this equilibrium is established, the teeth will function together properly. Phase Two usually involves full upper and lower braces.

At the beginning of the first phase, orthodontic records were made and a diagnosis and treatment plan was established. Certain types of appliances were used in the first phase to correct and realign the teeth and jaw. The second phase begins when all permanent teeth have erupted, and usually requires braces on all the teeth for an average of 24 months. Retainers are worn after this phase to ensure your child retains his or her beautiful smile.

Growth Modifications
Our doctors are experts in both orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics.

While orthodontics concern movements of the teeth only, dentofacial orthopedics is used to direct the face as the jawbones, facial muscles and teeth grow and mature.
Since facial growth happens mostly during the younger years, children are the main recipients of dentofacial orthopedics.
But actually, both children and adults can benefit from these outstanding treatments. The orthodontics aspect of our practice is most easily understood, but the dentofacial orthopedics aspect can be harder for patients to grasp.

This allows us to identify any present problems in the jaw, teeth and face while also developing a comprehensive treatment plan that combines orthodontics with dentofacial orthopedics.
