Orthodontics Offers More Than a Pretty Smile Milton, GA
Orthodontics Alpharetta GA

Orthodontic treatment is designed to straighten crooked teeth and close unsightly gaps. It is understandable, therefore, that braces are often considered for what they can do aesthetically within your smile. However, you’ll be happy to know that your orthodontic investment does far more than create a pretty smile. While aesthetics is undoubtedly a goal in orthodontic treatment, braces and other smile-straightening solutions can also enhance your oral health in significant ways.

Straight Teeth are Easier to Clean

When teeth are overlapping, crowded and misaligned, it becomes easy for food particles to get stuck in areas where your toothbrush and floss can’t clean. This leads to the accumulation of plaque and bacteria, which creates an open invitation for tooth decay and gum disease. Not only can frequent cavities send you to the dental office more than you’d like, the presence of gum disease is also a threat to your overall health. Untreated gum disease is associated with tooth loss, heart disease, stroke and premature birth. Therefore, by straightening your teeth with orthodontics, you can clean your teeth more easily and drastically reduce the likelihood of serious dental problems.

An Aligned Smile Fosters Better Jaw Health

Not only are dental misalignments connected to poor speech and eating habits, they can also contribute to jaw problems. When an individual’s bite is not properly aligned (malocclusion), bruxism is more common. Grinding and clenching the teeth can lead to jaw pain and jaw stiffness as well as enamel damage, ear pain and headaches. For a more functional and comfortable jaw, orthodontics can help.

The aesthetic and health benefits of orthodontic treatment can be gained in childhood or adulthood. At Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry, we value the importance of implementing orthodontic treatment early so that certain oral health problems can be completely avoided. If you suspect your child may need braces, please schedule a consult with us today.

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 Demtal 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.
