Is 2020 a Good Time to Start Orthodontic Treatment?


<< More From Barakat Orthodontics




Dear Dr. Barakat,

I never noticed this before, but when I’m doing my Zoom meetings, all I can focus on is my crooked teeth. I want my teeth straight, but what are my options, and is this a good time to talk to an Orthodontist?


Dear Concerned Parent,

It’s always a good time to look and feel your best!

The great news about having straight teeth is that not only will you get a beautiful smile, but a bite that will work better as well. Most people don’t realize that crowded teeth are part of a bigger picture. Misaligned teeth can lead to uneven wear, gum problems, and cavities between overlapped teeth.

Having said that, a great smile also gives you a boost so that you can tackle those Zoom meetings confidently! As a top Invisalign provider, we can provide you a superior experience using the latest technology. At Barakat Orthodontics, our current treatment options make it easy and comfortable with very little office time. Advances in technology have enabled us to provide you with a great experience resulting in the smile you’ve always wanted.

Get a head start now before the holidays kick in — you can be well on your way to that perfect smile in 2021!
