ORTHODONTIST - CANARSIE BROOKLYN
Dr. Abraham Ganz - Orthodontist
Graduate of the Rutgers University orthodontic program
Graduate of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey dental program
Dr. Abraham Ganz practices Orthodontics in New York, NY. Comprehensive orthodontic treatment includes metal wires that are inserted into orthodontic brackets, which can be made from stainless steel or a more aesthetic ceramic material. The wires interact with the brackets to move teeth into desired positions. Being advanced in the field, Dr. Ganz may also use Invisalign or other aligner trays that have been designed to align a patients? smile. As an orthodontist, Dr. Ganz must recognize various characteristics of a malocclusion or dentofacial deformity, define the nature of the problem, including the etiology if possible, and design a treatment strategy based on the specific needs and desires of the patient.
What is orthodontics?
Children, teens and adults can have problems with crooked teeth, and it is fortunate that there are orthodontic treatments available to straighten teeth and correct the problem. With kids, the traditional metal braces have been used very effectively in dealing with alignment issues of teeth that are not growing in properly. Our dentist can fit children with braces and monitor them throughout the treatment, making adjustments when needed and instructing the young ones on how to properly brush their teeth. It usually takes two years for a full treatment with braces to be effective, though that can vary depending on the condition.
Teens and adults with crooked teeth have a different situation facing them when it comes to wearing braces. Very often, teenagers will not like the idea of having noticeable wire brackets on their teeth. The teen years can be awkward enough without drawing attention to the problem of crooked teeth with a mouthful of braces. And busy adults are not going to be any happier about the idea of wearing metal braces for a few years in order to correct an alignment problem with the teeth.
Everyone, children and adults can have problems with crooked teeth, but with orthodontic treatments offered by our Canarsie cosmetic dentist Dr. Shamtoub, they don’t have to live with it.
Dr. Shamtoub has the answer with Invisalign aligners. Crooked teeth should not be neglected, as it is harder to keep teeth clean and healthy when they may be crowded together and overlapping in places. Misaligned teeth will also be a hindrance to having an attractive smile.
With Invisalign aligners, teens and adults can now have their teeth straightened in a way that will be virtually invisible to anyone else. Invisalign is a system of clear aligners that are changed every fourteen days by our cosmetic dentist in Canarsie Family Dentistry.
Each change of aligners will also create a change in the positioning of the teeth, until the proper alignment has been attained. These aligners can be removed when eating, brushing and flossing, so that teeth can be properly maintained throughout treatment.
Crooked teeth do not have to be a problem for children, teens or adults when our Canarsie cosmetic dentist has the proper orthodontic treatments.
