How Straight Teeth Promote a Healthier Mouth Milton, GA
Teenager Giving a Thumbs Up

There is no question that straight teeth are a beautiful asset to your overall appearance. But aesthetics are not the only benefit of having a straight, well-aligned smile. When your teeth are straight and in their proper position, you’ll also reap the advantages of a heathier and more comfortable mouth. Since straight teeth can lower your risk for several oral health issues, you’ll get more than just a pretty smile out of that orthodontic investment.

Less Crowding, Fewer Cavities
Crowded or overlapping teeth are more difficult to keep clean. Thus, they are statistically more prone to cavities compared to teeth that are properly spaced.

Proper Alignment, Healthier Gums
Periodontal disease is also more prevalent in those that have teeth that are crooked or out of alignment. Again, bacteria is likely to collect along the gum line in these tight spaces, which makes the gums susceptible to infection or disease.

Good Occlusion, Less Enamel Damage
Malocclusion (or a bad bite) can put unnecessary pressure on certain areas of your teeth. Over time, this can wear down the enamel and cause chipped, cracked or “flat” teeth. Orthodontics helps patients achieve a proper bite relationship and thus reduces the risk of this type of tooth wear and enamel damage.

Comfortable Bite, Lower Risk of Headaches and Jaw Pain
Your bite and teeth alignment also impacts your jaw joint (or TMJ). When alignment and occlusion are correct, the TMJ can function more efficiently and comfortably. Jaw pain, headaches and other TMJ symptoms become an issue when alignment is poor.

Our Patients Reviews

I was skeptical about going back into braces. Since this was my second round, I wanted something fast and affordable. I met with Dr. Patel and he was fantastic! He gave me different options, he was very detailed and he answered all my questions.

Dr. Patel is a gem of a person. My daughter is getting braces dine and dr. and staff make sure my daughter is comfortable with the treatment. Dr. Patel explains entire process patiently and gives time to answer any question we may have. Our experience is great and I strongly refer Dr. Patel for yours or your kid's orthodontics needs...

Highly recommend Milton Dental Specialists!! They were so sweet to my daughter and took extra time and effort to make her enjoy her experience and be comfortable! As a parent this is much appreciated! My daughter left smiling and excited to have her teeth cleaned. Thank you Dr. Chong and Renal!

An inviting waiting room with the front desk staff greeting me with a smile. Staff was very educated answering as many questions as possible since it was my first consultation for orthodontic help. Dr. Patel was VERY personable giving me all of the options for a plan of action the crowding of my teeth, and gave me all the information (time length, issues to be concerned with, financial differences) to help me choose the best plan for me. His details helped me to feel very comfortable with having to get braces as a female post 25+ years. I definitely recommend him as an orthodontist in the Milton/ North Atlanta area if you are looking for one. Best thing is that the first consultation was absolutely free!

Jagdeep S.

Very happy with Milton Dental Specialists. Having a dentist and orthodontist in one location makes dental exams easy while wearing braces. They have great hours and are very accommodating for kids in school who don’t want to miss school for orthodontic or dental work. Very happy with both the dentist and orthodontist.
