What is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is a specialized field of dentistry that allows us to prevent and correct malocclusion, tooth alignment issues, and other tooth abnormalities. Braces and other ortho appliances can help our Boston, MA patents — men, women, and children — get the straight smile they've been dreaming about. At Downtown Boston Dental, our team is proud to offer comprehensive orthodontic care using state-of-the-art techniques and technologies. Orthodontist Dr. Michael J.

If you think you or someone in your family may benefit from orthodontic care, call us to set up a consultation at our family-friendly office today.
"This office is simply the best. They are completely professional and respectful of their patients’ time (appointments are always punctual). I also really appreciate the nonjudgmental and conservative approach to dentistry - I have never felt upsold on any additional product or service. I feel very taken care of and have recommended multiple friends to this office. Thanks y’all! Keep it up!"- H.E. / Google / Jul 15, 2021
"I have had many fillings and cleanings here. The service is always very good. The staff are on top of insurance checks/issues. They are great at confirming/rescheduling. Dr. Canesi and his techs are very gentle and patient. The fillings are done well - no issues over the past 10 years. I would highly recommend this office for people who fear going to the dentist or have special requests. Update: I’ve now been coming here for about 15 years, and I still think this is the best dental practice I have ever been to. Every provider is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and talented. They are sensitive and caring. This includes the excellent administrative staff."- K.J. / Google / Jul 07, 2021

Can I Have Orthodontic Treatment?

What to Expect From Orthodontics
Orthodontic treatments at Downtown Boston Dental are completely unique and custom to each of our patients' specific needs and desires. During your consultation, we will take x-rays so we can evaluate your teeth and jaws. From there, impressions of your upper and lower arches will also be taken so we can create molds of your mouth and plan your treatment with them. We will carefully explain your options and help you choose the right ortho treatment for you or your child. In some cases, braces or other appliances will need to be worn for a few months to a few years before we reach your desired results.
Following Ortho Treatment
During your ortho treatment, you can expect to have periodic appointments so we can monitor your progress and make any adjustments as necessary. It's so important to maintain a healthy at-home routine by thoroughly brushing and flossing. This process can be unique with braces so we'll show you the proper brushing and flossing technique to clean around brackets and wires. Routine dental cleanings and exams at Downtown Boston Dental are also vitally important to keep your smile healthy and bright.
Insurance Coverage for Orthodontics
Orthodontics may be covered by dental insurance, depending on your family's individual plan. Someone from our team will happily call your dental insurance provider and review your benefits. If you don't have dental insurance, we can work with you and offer various payment methods to help make getting your oral care easier to afford.
