First, Dr. Bruce Ollins graduated from Brooklyn College before continuing on to the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. Finally, he earned his Orthodontic specialty degree from UMDNJ. After graduating he started Ollins Orthodontics in 1979. Dr. Ollins works hard to stay on top of the latest technological advances, such as Pitts 21 appliances, 3D imagining, and intraoral scanning. These technologies provide patients with a more efficient and comfortable orthodontic experience.
Dr. Gabriel Ollins graduated from The George Washington University and University of Maryland Dental school where he earned both his dental degree and specialty orthodontic certificate. Dr. Ollins shares his father’s passion for always striving to improve the orthodontic treatment provided in the office through the incorporation of the latest technological advancements.
Traditional braces continue to be one of the most efficient orthodontic tools available. They are made up of metal or ceramic brackets that are attached to the surface of your teeth, and then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics. Through regular adjustments with our doctors, these components will gradually move your teeth into the desired position as they work together to apply gentle pressure.
Belleville braces are an excellent choice for correcting a number of simple and complex tooth issues. Because they sometimes work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other options might, overall treatment time can be slightly reduced. In addition, since braces don’t require some of the expensive equipment or more complicated technology that newer treatments can, Belleville braces are a cost-effective option if you’re worried about your budget.
The Belleville Invisalign system doesn’t use brackets bands or wires, but instead, it used a series of removable clear aligners. These aligners will gradually move your teeth into alignment. Invisalign is currently the top alternative to traditional braces and is an incredibly popular choice with both patients and orthodontists.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and designed to fit snugly over the patient’s teeth. The trays are virtually invisible and are usually switched out every 1-2 weeks for the next in the series. This keeps the teeth moving in the right direction! In order for aligners to do their job, they must be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment. Patients who neglect to wear the aligners as directed can have a negative impact on the results and also add time to the orthodontic process.
Invisalign is at its most effective when used to correct many of the most common orthodontic issues. Invisalign may not be a viable option for complex cases. A free consultation with Ollins Orthodontics will be able to help determine your eligibility for Invisalign.
