Waldwick NJ Orthodontist

When you hear the word “orthodontist”, you automatically think of someone who applies braces to a 10 year old child, but orthodontists are so much more than that! Orthodontists can treat or prevent many different problems to patients of all ages. Dr. Lorino is no exception to this and has been treating different cases and patients in the Waldwick area for over 10 years. Although braces, Invisalign, and retainers are the most common treatments, Smiles by Lorino can also:


·         Correct and prevent conflicts of growth between the upper and lower jaws (malocclusion)

·         Guide the development and ultimate position of the teeth (braces)

·         Eliminate any impairment of chewing ability caused by the malocclusion

·         Reduce the proneness to dental decay and gum disease caused by crowding of the teeth

·         Eliminate harmful habits (thumb sucking, etc)

·         Improve the appearance of the face and mouth area

·         Correct joint defects


These duties differ significantly from those of a dentist, so that is why it is extremely important for you to visit an orthodontist in Waldwick along with seeing your dentist every six months. Experts, and the staff at Smiles by Lorino, agree that by the age of 7 your child should have their first consultation appointment. If you have not made an appointment in Bergen County yet, please contact us at our Franklin Lakes or Long Hill NJ office for a consultation for you or your child. We hope to see you soon!
