In addition to aligning teeth, orthodontic treatment can correctly align the jawbone.
Orthodontic procedures in our Astoria dental office are performed by Dr. Gus Atalla, a certified orthodontist. Dr. Atalla is a graduate of New York University’s School of Orthodontics, and has been a member of our Queens dental practice since 2004. During that time, he has helped to straighten the teeth of thousands of patients and has become one of the most referred-to Invisalign® orthodontists in New York. Dr. Atalla offers both traditional orthodontics and Invisalign® orthodontics.
There are two primary orthodontic braces that our patients can choose from.
- Traditional Braces – This includes a series of orthodontic brackets and wires that are attached to the teeth and are used to effectively reposition the roots, teeth and jaw. Traditional wire braces are typically used on pre-teens and teens. Adults interested in orthodontic treatment often prefer an alternative to wire braces due to their look. Although wire braces, complete with a selection of colored wires, may be a rite of passage for teens, adults often prefer a more discreet form of orthodontics.
- Invisalign Braces – This is a state-of-the-art orthodontic system that straightens teeth using a series of soft, clear, nearly invisible plastic aligners. The Invisalign aligners gradually adjust the position and alignment of teeth in order to create a straight and attractive smile. Invisalign orthodontics eliminate the irritation and discomfort that can come with the brackets and wires involved in traditional orthodontic treatment. The clear aligners are virtually undetectable, making them easy to wear by adults without feeling self-conscious. Invisalign orthodontics are available for pre-teens and teens as well.
