Your Jamesburg Orthodontist

Dr. Susan Leiva headshot-edited

I love helping people develop a beautiful, healthy smile that improves their self-esteem and confidence.

While seeing a person’s finished smile is wonderful, getting to know that you during treatment and becoming your friend makes the smile seem so much more.

At age 12, I knew I wanted to be an orthodontist. I had braces, and the way they changed how I felt about myself was indescribable. I knew I needed to share that experience with others.

After many rewarding years in practice, I’m grateful for having met and helped so many wonderful people. When a patient goes from being embarrassed by their crooked teeth to smiling and laughing with pride, I know I’ve done my job well.

I’m blessed to have such a fulfilling job!

-Dr. Susan Leiva

Jamesburg Braces

Traditional braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. The metal or ceramic brackets, which are connected to by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics, are attached to your teeth. Regular adjustments with our doctors will help these parts work together to gently apply pressure to your teeth. This pressure will gradually move your teeth into the desired position.

Jamesburg braces from Monroe Orthodontics are a great choice to get a correction that looks great for both simple or complex teeth issues. Jamesburg braces are also a cost-effective option for patients on a budget. Plus, since they sometimes work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other options might, overall treatment time can be slightly reduced. Braces also don’t require some of the more complicated technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can.

Jamesburg Invisalign

Invisalign is an incredibly popular option for both patients and orthodontists and is currently the top alternative to traditional braces. The Jamesburg Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually move the teeth into alignment instead of brackets and bands.

Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and designed to fit snugly over the patient’s teeth. The trays are virtually invisible and are usually switched out every 1-2 weeks for the next in the series. This keeps the teeth moving in the right direction! If you don’t wear your aligners as directed you may see unwanted results such as slower treatment or a lack of results altogether. Aligners must be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment for them to do their job.

A free consultation with Monroe Orthodontics will be able to help determine your eligibility for Invisalign. Invisalign is at its most effective when used to correct many of the most common orthodontic issues, and may not be the best option for patients with especially complex cases.

Braces and Invisalign: find the right treatment for your smile

When you visit our office for a complimentary consultation, you’ll find that we focus on your particular orthodontic needs, as well as your specific tooth shape, the movement of your lips, and the shape of your face. Using these as the basis for treatment will result in a beautifully aligned smile that’s just right for your face!
