Orthodontists have the same 4-year dental training as general dentists, plus have studied for an additional 2-3 years to specialize in orthodontics. By limiting our practice only to orthodontics, we become very proficient at moving teeth and solving difficult problems that arise during treatment.
When choosing Invisalign, make sure you are comfortable with your doctor's experience at moving teeth. Take into consideration the complexity of your treatment when deciding which doctor to choose. Problems that start out as very minor issues, often are more involved than they appear. If you have teeth that are twisted, crowded, spaced or you have bite issues, you will probably want to choose an orthodontist experienced in tooth movement to obtain maximum results.

I was recently speaking to a customer service representative at one of the nation's largest insurance company's, trying to get information on a patient's orthodontic coverage, when I was informed that insurance will no longer cover both phases of orthodontic treatment. I was told that if a patient has Phase 1 or braces on the primary teeth, then insurance won't cover a Phase 2 or braces on the permanent teeth later on if needed.

Dr. Eder’s compassion and experience in working with patients with and without special needs is unsurpassed. He and his staff at Eder Orthodontics treat all of their patients special, regardless of their needs.

At Eder Orthodontics, we know how important it is to protect your teeth and your face while playing sports. With the arrival of spring and summer there is an increase in outdoor activities and a greater chance of damaging your mouth and teeth. Dr. Eder knows that sports-related injuries are very common among children and teenagers alike and is happy to be a part of the AAO "Play it Safe" campaign. The American Association of Orthodontists is promoting their campaign to encourage youth of all ages to gear up and play it safe by wearing mouthguards when participating in any sporting activity.
The following are some interesting statistics that the AAO has listed on their website and should be considered when deciding if your child needs a mouthguard when participating in their sport of choice.
Injuries can happen at any age or skill level – More than half of the seven million sports and recreation-related injuries that occur each year are sustained by youth between ages 5 and 24. *
