Apollonia Dental Hires Dr. Zinati for In-House Orthodontic Services

BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA – Apollonia Dental Center welcomes orthodontist Dr. B. David Zinati to our practice.

Dr. Zinati, a graduate of University of Southern California’s School of Dentistry, stays up to date in the orthodontic field. His addition to our practice allows us to offer braces to our patients with misaligned teeth.

Dr. Zinati joined our practice this May. Apollonia dentist Dr. Joseph Marvizi had met Dr. Zinati earlier, and when Dr. Marvizi wanted an in-house orthodontist to offer braces to his patients, he and Dr. Zinati joined forces.

Straighter teeth improve your appearance and boost your self-esteem, but there are other reasons to want a straighter smile. Crooked or crowded teeth are harder to keep clean, meaning plaque has an easier time collecting in hard-to-reach spots. Crowded teeth put your mouth at risk for gum disease. A straighter smile facilitates proper brushing and flossing. With aligned teeth, you can pay careful attention to each tooth, resulting in a cleaner mouth and more sustainable dental health.

Crooked teeth can be caused by a variety of issues. Some of you may have inherited crooked or crowded teeth from your parents and grandparents. Others may be former thumb-suckers whose teeth haven’t properly lined up. You may have experienced an accident that resulted in a lost tooth, or you may have lost a baby tooth prematurely. Whatever the cause of your crooked teeth, orthodontics can help.

You’ll probably know if your teeth are crooked or crowded enough to require orthodontic care. Children see permanent teeth develop between the ages of 6 and 12, and during that time dentists can normally tell whether or not the child will need braces.

Patients with straight teeth may still have an imbalanced bite. Aligned teeth will give you a more harmonious bite. Malocclusion may be inhibiting your natural eating and speaking. A bad bite can wear teeth down unnecessarily, weakening the enamel and making and more susceptible to decay. A misaligned bite may even cause you long-term problems such as TMJ disorders.

Braces can be metal or ceramic, and some braces even attach to the back of your teeth for incognito straightening. Rubber bands shift teeth further and align your bite. You may need to have one or two teeth removed to create more room in your mouth for perfect alignment.

Dr. Marvizi already offers Invisalign teen and Invisalign in Bakersfield. Dr. Zinati’s contribution to Apollonia Dental will allow our patients to receive straighter smiles with the help of an experienced, friendly arsenal of dentists and orthodontists.

Our cosmetic dentists offer tooth whitening, bonding, dental bridges and porcelain veneers to perfect your winning smile. Contact our Bakersfield dentists community to schedule a routine appointment or to meet with Dr. Zinati for an orthodontic consultation.
