Our digital X-ray system uses the lowest possible level of exposure and our laser cavity detection device can detect cavities before they can be seen with the naked eye.
Orthodontics & Invisilign
Why have orthodontic treatments at the officesof Melville Kids Dentistry? Unlike other “specialized” orthodontic offices, where orthodontics is performed only under the “supervision” of an orthodontist, our office has developed a team approach to orthodontics. Our experienced pediatric dentist, Dr. Michelle Kun, is the first to assess the orthodontic needs of your child. If, based on clinical examination, it is determined that some type of malocclusion (misalignment) is either developing or the potential exists, Dr. Kun confers with our staff orthodontist, Dr. Anthea Resnick for an evaluation. Lastly, since we believe that straightened teeth should remain so into adulthood, in those instances where the existing misalignment may require another type of dentistry in addition to orthodontics, our experienced general practitioner, Dr. Aram Kirkorian, is consulted. Our approach involves not one, but three individual doctors, specializing in different areas of dentistry. We believe that this very unique approach is more conclusive in determining the optimum treatment for the patient.
Having straight teeth and a good bite can help to keep your teeth and gums healthy, increase your self-confidence, and give you a winning smile! Crooked and overlapping teeth are difficult to keep clean and might lead to cavities and gum disease. A misaligned bite can make chewing difficult, wear your teeth excessively, and put undue strain on your jaw muscles. As an orthodontist I take great pleasure in explaining to my patients and their parents how straightening their teeth and correcting their bite can benefit them. - Dr Anthea Resnick, Orthodontist at Melville Kids Dentistry
