Common Problems
To Address With Orthodontics

Having straight, healthy teeth has many health benefits and can help with a person’s self-esteem. Orthodontic problems can develop early on in a persons life or happen over time. To avoid an orthodontic problem from getting worse, it is important to address them as soon as they occur. Not addressing an orthodontic problem early, can lead to needing a more expensive treatment or even longer treatment time. Some common problems we address are:

  • Crowding
  • Overlays
  • Openbites
  • Spacing
  • Overbite
  • Underbites

The NYS Dental Association has closely monitored all developments with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

As we are aware the COVID-19 situation in New York is one of the most serious in the nation.  At this time it is highly recommended that dental offices only provide emergency care for our patients; and close for a minimum of 3 weeks.  As a professional office we want to be responsible and slow the spread of COVID-19. We will follow this urgent recommendation- the office will be closed for patient care starting Wednesday 3/18/2020.  As of now the office plans to tentatively reopen 4/13/2020.  Dr. Hoskinson will be available to see emergency patients –  a patient experiencing discomfort. The office will reach out to our patients and  reschedule all appointments once we know an exact date for reopening.

This is an extremely fluid, unprecedented event in our country.  We are being faced with many unknowns and personal challenges at this time.

Happy & Healthy Wishes to all,

Hoskinson Orthodontics
