Welcome To Blais Orthodontics
Best Orthodontist in Scarsdale
Dr. Merissa Blais & our staff are happy to serve patients starting as early as age four and into adulthood. We specialize in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics for both children and adults. Monitoring the development of children’s jaw bones and tooth development is powerful when started early. It’s also very important to establish a positive familiarity with the dentist at a young age to encourage a lifetime of good oral health!
Dr. Blais and our staff work closely with our patients and families to create a “home away from home” environment putting even the most apprehensive patients at ease. We ensure that you feel comfortable and relaxed when you visit us; in between creating gorgeous smiles and great bites, there’s always time to laugh!
This office prides itself on offering very individualized care and a concierge service, offering dedicated care before, during and after treatment, as well as coordination of treatment that is adjunctive. We are detail-oriented and aim to make the process as smooth as possible! We have the only airway orthodontist who focuses on growth, development and proper overall growth—not just teeth—in the area.
Orthodontics For Children
Dr Blais sees children starting at age 4, yup age 4-5, to monitor growth and development and make sure there aren’t any oral habits that are interfering with proper boney development and tooth position. Early phase I’s are geared towards ensuring the foundation (ie the upper and lower jaws) are growing properly. Phase II (comprehensive braces or Invisalign) typically starts once all the adult teeth are erupted.
Orthodontics For Adults
Adult orthodontics can be life-changing. Many times, it is done to ensure the success of a periodontal or prosthodontic procedure, like veneers or esthetic bonding. Our office is very familiar with complex, interdisciplinary cases that involve more than 1 or 2 doctors and we are positioned to help organize the flow of the case with all the other doctors to keep things easy. Braces or Invisalign or a combination of the two are used to treat adults. We aim to do everything, simple and complex, as efficiently as possible.
We provide a custom-fitted tray that slips over your teeth and a gel whitening product. Dr. Merissa Blais offers trays that can be worn with braces as well as trays that are used when your braces are removed. Wear the tray as prescribed by our orthodontist. Patients usually wear the tray for 15-20 minutes a day or at night for up to four weeks.
We invite you to contact Blais Orthodontics today to learn more and to schedule your next visit.
