Dr. Amin-Patel has undergone extensive training in the field of orthodontic therapy. A 2-year long Progressive Orthodontics continuous education and training program provided Dr. Amin-Patel current information and skills to deliver comprehensive orthodontic treatment for both adults and children.
Comprehensive Orthodontic Therapy for Every Smile
Whether you have minor tooth crowding or severe bite irregularities – with traditional braces, no need is too big or too small. Dr. Amin-Patel frequently recommends comprehensive braces for managing:
- Misaligned, Gapped, or Crooked Teeth
- TMJ Disorders / Headaches
- Periodontal Disease
- Tooth Wear or Broken Restorations
Correcting the alignment of your entire bite can make your bite more functional. This in turn, reduces tooth wear and trauma to the TMJ. As teeth are straightened, they are also easier to keep clean with conventional brushing and flossing. Improving your oral hygiene can prevent periodontal disease from progressing – and aid in regeneration of bone structure around your teeth.
Why Start Young?
Dr. Amin-Patel recommends an orthodontic evaluation for every child by the age of 7. At this time, most children are beginning to have adult teeth erupt into place, allowing Dr. Amin-Patel to assess the development and eruption patterns of the adult dentition (bite). If early intervention is necessary, we can take steps to limit the length of treatment that your child needs for his or her smile in the future.
Why Adults Make Great Orthodontic Patients
Most adults are hesitant to consider braces due to the appearance of the appliances. Fortunately, we also offer a clear bracket option! Now you can straighten even severely crowded or gapped teeth while maintaining the best aesthetics possible. Our clear braces are extremely functional to correct the bite and alignment of your teeth – without the extra metal or colored wires.
