“I've been very happy with my experience at APO. I went for help with some bite issues that were causing some bone loss and a loose front tooth. In the end, I've not only had that bite issue resolved but my teeth look great. Everyone at APO is so friendly that they make what would normally be a drag something I looked forward to. Highly recommend!”
“Dr. Yu and her team are amazing! My son, Kale, has had spacers and braces. He is now proud to smile. The preventative care that was done, means he will not have his braces on for long. I highly recommend Dr. Yu and her office.”
“Dr. Yu and her team are amazing! Always so friendly and informative. I can’t recommend their services enough. One of the best experiences I’ve had as a patient!”
A Trusted Orthodontist in Windham
Dr. Yu spent years studying to straighten smiles and improve oral health for patients of all ages. When you schedule your first free consultation, Dr. Yu will give you all you need to know to make the most informed decision for your orthodontic care.
Dr. Yu graduated from Northwestern University with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology. She received her dental degree from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and graduated with the highest honors. She then completed orthodontic specialty training at Tufts. Dr. Yu is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists and the Maine Dental Association.
Traditional braces in Windham are an excellent choice for correcting complex tooth issues. Since they can sometimes work faster at aligning teeth and closing gaps than other treatments might, overall treatment time may be slightly reduced. Braces don’t require some of the more complex technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can, meaning Windham braces are a cost-effective option for your smile.
Traditional metal braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. They’re made out of metal or ceramic brackets that are affixed to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics. These brackets, wires, and bands work together to apply the gentle pressure that will gradually move the teeth into the positions we want them to be in as long as you have regular adjustments with Dr. Yu.
Invisalign is incredibly popular with both patients and orthodontists in Windham and is the top alternative to traditional braces. Instead of brackets and bands, the Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and customized to fit snugly over your teeth. To keep your teeth moving in the direction you want them to, you’ll need to switch your invisible trays out for the next one in the series every 1-2 weeks as directed by Dr. Yu.
The Invisalign system can only work if the recommended guidelines are followed exactly! Aligners should be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment. If patients neglect to wear the aligners as directed, it can impede the results and also add time to the orthodontic process.
Invisalign is at its most efficient when correcting many of the most common orthodontic issues. For some complex cases, Invisalign may not be a good option. A free consultation with Dr. Yu at Adult & Pediatric Orthodontics in Windham will allow us to determine your eligibility for Invisalign.
