Dr. Batastini provides custom-made braces, retainers or other corrective appliances, according to the problem being treated. Whether they’re ‘removable’ or ‘fixed’ into the mouth, whether they’re made of metal, ceramic or plastic, all orthodontic appliances have a common purpose – to use gentle pressure to move teeth and jaws into their proper positions. Today’s patients benefit from techniques and materials that enhance the comfort of orthodontic treatment.
