Excellence in orthodontics with optimum care.
Beautiful smiles for all ages.
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children aged 7 have their first orthodontic evaluation. It is the best time to assess teeth and jaw development and detect any early signs of developmental problems. If treatment is needed, early intervention can avoid the need for a more complex orthodontic treatment, tooth extractions, and even jaw surgery in the future. At Mashpee Orthodontics, we will never push any unnecessary procedures on your child. Dr. Nick will determine if orthodontic treatment is required and the best time to proceed.
The teenage years are the most common time to get orthodontic treatment, as most or all of the permanent teeth have already come out. It is also the best time to begin orthodontic treatment as your teen is still in the developmental stage, and the bone is still growing. One popular option for discreet orthodontic treatment during this time is Invisalign, which uses clear aligners to gently shift teeth into the desired position. This virtually invisible solution helps teenagers feel more confident during the process, without the worry of traditional metal braces. Aside from boosting confidence, having straight teeth will also allow teens to clean their teeth easier, be less prone to wear and tear, prevent jaw joint problems, and reduce the chances of developing gum disease.
It is never too late to achieve the confident smile you have always wanted. If you have been self-conscious about your smile for years, our team is here to help you find the orthodontic treatment that best suits your needs and what will make you feel comfortable. From traditional metal braces to a more discreet option like Invisalign, which uses clear aligners to gently shift your teeth into place, we can help you achieve the healthy, stunning smiles you deserve. Invisalign is a popular choice for those who want to maintain a professional appearance or simply prefer a nearly invisible treatment option. Let us guide you on your journey to a beautiful, confident smile.
Invisalign is a perfect solution for working professionals or patients seeking a discrete solution to improve their smile. It is one of the world’s most innovative ways of straightening teeth with a series of clear aligners. And when it comes to your smile, experience matters! Dr. Nick is a certified Invisalign Platinum Provider that has treated a wide array of mild to complex cases with Invisalign.
Metal braces have been used for decades and are the most affordable way to straighten teeth. With orthodontic advancements, the metal brackets we use nowadays are smaller, more comfortable, and more efficient. Children and teens love how they can customize the colors of their braces with fun, colored elastics.
The Damon System bracket is self-ligating, which means it doesn’t use elastic bands to keep the wire in place. There are several advantages of not having elastic bands, such as less plaque attaching to the braces, braces are much easier to clean, and less friction is created – allowing your treatment to be more efficient and progress faster.
At Mashpee Orthodontics, we use a self-ligating Damon Clear bracket system for patients who aren’t good candidates for clear aligners or those who prefer a fixed appliance. The Damon Clear brackets blend beautifully with the natural color of your teeth, making them a more discreet option than metal braces.

Sleep apnea and orthodontics.
Do you or your partner snore loudly or wake up breathless in the middle of the night? If so, you may be experiencing sleep apnea. With sleep apnea, your breathing stops and results in a lack of oxygen in your brain, temporarily waking you up. Most of the time, treatment may involve fabricating a custom-made oral appliance to get relief.
