Orthodontics is an essential part of dental health for many people. It is the study of how the jaw and teeth align to form a proper bite. The word has become synonymous with braces because an orthodontic treatment normally involves the use of some kind of corrective device such as braces to help change the shape of the bite and the appearance of your smile.

Doctor Nahel Yanni is one of the most experienced and respected orthodontic providers in East Brunswick or even New Jersey. He has received extensive training from Progressive Orthodontics and has successfully helped numerous patients improve the look or feel of their bite, as well as treated emergency situations. To understand if these services might be a good choice for you, it’s important to understand the role that tooth alignment plays in common dental problems and complaints, and how adjusting the teeth can help.

Millions of people are unhappy with the way their teeth look. A straight, even smile is just as important to many people as having white teeth. If you don’t feel confident about your smile, it can lead to feeling uncertain or embarrassed in social situations or even a lack of confidence across the board. Your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you, and if you try to hide it you may seem unfriendly. There’s no reason that you or anyone should have to feel embarrassed about your smile when there are such simple, effective tools available to correct it.

Severely misaligned bites can also have more serious effects, and correcting them can prevent damage to your teeth and mouth.

To correct uneven teeth or an uncomfortable bite, Dr. Yanni offers a number of different kinds of orthodontic options. The most popular is Invisalign, a brand name orthodontic system that uses see-through fittings so that the braces are virtually invisible. It is possible to see Invisalign braces, but unless someone is looking closely at your mouth they will not notice them. Thus, Invisalign is perfect for adults and teens who do not want their dental work to affect the way people perceive them in social or business situations.

Often, orthodontic services are offered preventatively, to hold the teeth straight in children as they grow and develop so that their adult teeth will be even. However, at least 1 in 5 orthodontics patients are adults. Many adults are not happy with their teeth and they can see huge improvement from temporarily using orthodontics.

If you live in East Brunswick or anywhere in the New Jersey area, Dr. Yanni is your best option for quality, painless orthodontics. Give us a call today.
