Hoskinson Orthodontics provides the residents of Scotia, Schenectady, Glenville, Amsterdam and surrounding areas with a variety of personalized, affordable orthodontic treatments. We believe that every patient deserves to have a personalized treatment plan that is specifically designed to meet their individual needs. From the moment you walk into Hoskinson Orthodontics, we want you to feel like you are right at home. We don’t just treat our patients as patients; we want you to feel like you are part of our family.
Hoskinson Orthodontics offers a variety of different treatments to meet the needs of all of our patients throughout the Scotia and Schenectady areas which we serve. We strive to offer all of the services that your entire family needs all in one convenient, central location. The following is a comprehensive list of all the services that we offer for our patients:
Early treatment offers appointments for young children who may later need more extensive orthodontic treatment. These first appointments should occur around the age of 7. While not every child is a candidate for orthodontic treatment at this age, children can begin their evaluation to determine if they may need treatment as they continue to mature. If families have questions about entering the orthodontic process, Dr. Hoskinson is always happy to provide clarity on the process.
Adolescents are the most common age group of patients that we have here at Hoskinson Orthodontics. Adolescence is the age at which our team works closely with parents to tailor treatment to their teen to ensure that they receive an individualized plan that suits their needs. The most common treatments that adolescents need are braces. Furthermore, we can tailor their treatment to the lifestyle that best fits the family during this “ideal window” that adolescents go through where orthodontic treatment is typically the most effective.
Hoskinson Orthodontics serves both Scotia and Schenectady’s adult population with leading orthodontic treatment that proves that it’s never too late to get the orthodontic treatment you need to have a more confident smile. Adult orthodontic treatment can help lessen the risk of future health concerns such as gum/bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth’s enamel, headaches, and jaw joint pain (TMJ). If you are an adult who needs treatment, we offer an array of options for your treatment as well!
Hoskinson Orthodontics offers patients several different types of braces as we understand that different types of treatment will work better for different patients. Braces come in several different types, including traditional metal braces, ceramic braces, and Invisalign. We work hard to be one of Scotia and Schenectady’s orthodontic leaders in cutting-edge care, no matter what types of orthodontic treatment your treatment requires.
Our retention services provide those who have finished their treatment with a beautiful and lasting smile that will serve each patient for a lifetime. Dr. Hoskinson and his staff provide patients with retainers after their treatment and encourage them to wear them regularly to maintain the best smile and results possible.
Hoskinson Orthodontics provides more than just basic orthodontic treatments such as braces and retainers. Our practice also offers the Scotia and Schenectady area with surgical procedures such as orthognathic surgery. These procedures are used to treat abnormalities in the formation of facial bones. We use these orthognathic treatments in conjunction with orthodontic treatment to ensure that patients get the best results possible.
AcceleDent is a new technology that allows patients to achieve results in a faster and more comfortable manner. The light and easy-to-use appliance is used for about 20 minutes per day and is attached to a soft mouthpiece that uses small vibrations to enhance the movement of your teeth to help maximize the effects of your orthodontic treatment. AcceleDent technology can help speed up the treatment process and make the treatment less uncomfortable than it would be with just traditional treatments.
Hoskinson Orthodontics takes tremendous pride in serving Scotia, Schenectady, Glenville, and Amsterdam. Please feel free to contact us at Hoskinson Orthodontics if you are looking for orthodontic services or schedule an appointment online today. We look forward to seeing you in our office!
