Here at Ghosh Orthodontists, we have provided our community with expert orthodontic care since we established our first location in Pottsville in 1997. Dr. Ghosh and his team have led the way in orthodontics for over 17 years now, developing a reputation for excellent care and our state-of-the-art dental facilities in which we strive to complete most dental cases without the need for surgery. In fact, our main goal is to provide the best results in the most comfortable and efficient manner possible.
The Expertise of the Ghosh Orthodontist Team
Dr. Ghosh believes that continual education is the best way to keep up with technological advances made within the orthodontic industry. Our entire team takes part in continual education classes in an effort to provide patients with the most efficient and highest quality care. Our dental team consists of highly trained and educated individuals, many of whom have over a decade worth of experience in the orthodontic field and who - most importantly - love working with their patients.
Our Ghosh Orthodontist Services
Dr. Ghosh and our team make use of state-of-the-art equipment in order to help complete most cases without the need for surgery or extractions. This equipment includes the use of lasers, digital impression scanners, Damon braces, a customized Insignia System and the AcceleDent. The following are a few services that we focus on:
Braces - We provide several types of braces treatments, including Invisalign braces, the Insignia system and the Damon System. Invisalign braces are an invisible series of removable aligners that help straighten the patient's teeth without the use of metal. Our special Invisalign teen braces are specifically designed for teens, allowing them to remove their Invisalign teen braces whenever they want in order to eat their favorite foods without worry. The Insignia treatment involves a process in which sophisticated imaging software is used to create a 3-D impression of your teeth in order to custom fabricate braces for each patient. Then there's the revolutionary Damon system, which consists of braces that are self-ligating, which means patients will feel less pressure. The lack of elastic or metal ties results in less problems with plaque buildup as well.
Retention - We guide our patients through the retention phase after braces are removed by providing them with exact instructions on how to wear their retainer and gradually reduce the amount of time which they must wear their retainers on a daily basis. Our retention treatment includes active treatment, a set of retainers and a one year retention phase that includes regular checkups.
Adult Care - Certain asymmetrical corrections can no longer be accomplished in adults using just braces due to the fact that adult facial bones are no longer growing. We can use both orthognathic surgery and orthodontics for patients that request such corrections.
Ghosh Orthodontists looks forward to providing you with the best orthodontic care available and ensuring that you leave with a beautiful smile on your face!
