Quality Orthodontic Care for Manlius and Fayetteville Patients
At his Manlius, NY orthodontist practice
, David M. Konys, DDS, MS, helps patients in the Fayetteville and Manlius areas achieve straighter smiles for better oral health.
Orthodontics is the dental specialty that corrects, diagnoses, and prevents malocclusions or misalignments. This includes misalignment of the teeth as well as the jaw. Dr. Konys
completed an additional two years of schooling after graduating dental school to become an orthodontist to help young patients and adults alike achieve straight smiles with an even bite. His Manlius dentistry practice has served Manlius and Fayetteville patients with quality orthodontic care since 1989.
What Types of Orthodontic Treatments Does Dr. Konys Offer?
Dr. Konys offers a number of orthodontic interventions. While they all help to straighten teeth and/or align the jaws, each has unique attributes and benefits offered to patients. Examples of services Dr. Konys offers to both adults and young people include:
• Ceramic Braces:
Also known as tooth-colored braces, these braces use tooth-colored brackets to make the braces less noticeable. While they can be an attractive alternative to metal braces, they are slightly more fragile, requiring extra care during treatment.
• Invisalign®: Invisalign is an alternative to traditional braces that can correct mild to moderate tooth alignment and bite issues using a system of clear plastic aligner trays. Dr. Konys will work with you to create a computer-generated image of your desired smile to review with you prior to beginning treatment. You can actually see your final result before starting. He will then give you dental aligners to wear nearly all hours of the day. You will switch the aligners for a new set every other week until you achieve your desired results. Dr. Konys schedules his Invisalign patients on 10 week intervals for the convenience of his patient’s busy schedules.
• Metal Braces:
The traditional metal braces tend to be the most affordable of all options. They are very strong and are well-suited to correcting more severe dental concerns.
When considering the best orthodontic option for his Manlius and Fayetteville patients, Dr. Konys takes into account what will offer his patients the most conservative, long-lasting results.
What Conditions Do Orthodontic Treatments Correct?
Orthodontic treatments can correct a number of dental conditions. If you are uncertain if your oral health concern can be addressed via orthodontic treatment, schedule a consultation with Dr. Konys at his Manlius dental practice to determine what treatment is right for you. Examples of conditions he can address include:
• Crooked teeth
• Crowded teeth
• Gapped teeth
Dr. Konys offers the latest technology, including digital imaging and digital impressions, to show what a patient's smile could look like after orthodontic treatment. Because he also knows a patient's time is valuable, he schedules appropriately so that wait times are minimal during any orthodontic appointment.
