Long Island Orthodontist For Children, Adolescents and Adults

Cosmetic DentistryAlthough the importance of a nice smile should never be underestimated, orthodontic care is critical to ensuring and improving the health of your teeth and gums. Crowded teeth are difficult to clean and maintain, and may eventually result in early tooth loss. Bad bites can result in abnormal wear on tooth surfaces, and damage supporting bone and gum tissue. Jaw joint (TMJ) pain and associated headaches can sometimes also be the result of crooked teeth and incorrect bites which can be fixed by an orthodontist.

Orthodontic care can reduce appearance-consciousness during the critical developmental years. Appearance can have an effect on popularity, social behaviors, self-expectation, personality style, and self-image. Also, orthodontic care may lessen the likelihood that a child will be picked on by other children. Crowded teeth in adults may adversely affect career patterns, social acceptance, and self-confidence.

Traditional or Clear And Invisible Braces

There are two types of braces in common use today. Traditional braces requires metal or plastic brackets that are bonded to the teeth. These are secured and tightened with metal wires. The second and newer type of brace is plastic clear and invisible braces. Long Island Orthodontic Practitioner Dr. Paternina's extensive training in orthodontics, allows him to effectively treat teeth alignment problems in children and adults with traditional or invisible braces to create that important attractive smile that you or child deserve.

Clear braces are removable braces that are invisible to most people and can effectively treat minor alignment problems without the inconvenience of metal wire braces. Invisible braces are more suitable for the adult patient in need for minor corrections.

Some of the advantages of invisible braces are easier access to oral hygiene, they are not as unsightly as metal wire and they can be removed to eat without impairment. Invisible braces require extraordinary patient cooperation for the treatment to be successful.
