Orthodontics is a specialty field in dentistry which deals primarily with the diagnosis, prevention and correction of malpositioned teeth and the jaws.

From treatments for young children to prevent malocclusions to corrective braces for adults, Dr. Patel is dedicated to helping all our orthodontic patients obtain the beautifully straight and aligned smile they deserve.

Types of Orthodontic Treatment

Periodic orthodontic screening exams on patients, starting at age 7, are essential for monitoring tooth and jaw development. Interceptive treatment needs are identified here.
Growing patients may require interceptive orthodontic treatment to prevent or minimize the severity of a malocclusion.
Comprehensive or corrective
With the use of braces and other appliances, comprehensive orthodontic treatment corrects malocclusions.
In some severe cases, surgical treatment is needed to remedy misaligned teeth or jaw problems.
Some of our orthodontic services include:

Causes of Orthodontic Problems

There are several different factors that can cause orthodontic problems. Many malocclusions are caused by one of two things: too much room or not enough room for teeth in the jaw. If there is too much room due to a lost tooth or other issues, teeth may not grow in straight or aligned. If there is not enough room for teeth due to a small jaw or genetic factors, the teeth may be forced to grow out of alignment. Another cause is oral habits that disrupt the natural growth of jaws and eruption of teeth, such as thumb sucking, pacifiers and tongue thrusting.

Dr. Patel at Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry is an experienced, highly qualified orthodontist that treats all types of orthodontic problems. Contact our office today to schedule an initial consultation for orthodontic treatment.

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...

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.
