Dr. Yagi Patel is proud to offer orthodontic treatment to children and adults here at Atlantis Dental Care. Orthodontic treatment is used to improve tooth and bite alignment for more attractive, healthier smiles.
When people think of orthodontics, they often imagine traditional braces worn by teenagers. While braces are still a useful option (and in some cases, the most appropriate one), we have other options available today that make it easier than ever for everyone to have the straight smile they’ve always wanted.
Invisalign uses translucent aligner trays worn right over the teeth to guide them into the correct position. When these aligners are in place, they are virtually invisible – hence the name!
Our adult orthodontic patients love Invisalign. It’s so discreet that nobody even knows you’re wearing it, even up close. Because you remove the aligners to eat, you don’t have to worry about missing out on your favorite foods, and cleaning the aligners is a breeze.
While straightening teeth is often thought of as an aesthetic treatment, the truth is that straight teeth are important for your long-term health. Crooked teeth can pose a number of problems down the road. For instance, you’ll have trouble keeping them clean with a toothbrush and floss, and your teeth will have pressure in areas they aren’t designed to withstand. In time, this might lead to problems like clenching or grinding or even cracks and fractures.
