Dr. Olga Bukholts 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. Bukholts may also use Invisalign or other aligner trays that have been designed to align a patients? smile. As an orthodontist, Dr. Bukholts 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.
Dr. Olga Bukholts D.D.S.'s Expert Contributions
Invisalign is a wonderful appliance, and most people feel a lot less discomfort in aligners vs. braces. In order to move teeth, some pressure needs to be applied to them. Most people feel aligners are tight in the beginning and then feel much better in a day or two. READ MORE
Putting braces on is not at all painful (it’s like gluing a gem to your nail). There is absolutely no need to be asleep. READ MORE
When you are in braces, you can never eat “normally” because you have to avoid everything hard and everything sticky. If that is not something you are willing to do, consider Invisalign. READ MORE
Please visit your general dentist and have a cleaning and check up to make sure you have no gum disease or cavities and you are good to go! READ MORE
Possibly but not likely. Please consult with both your orthodontist and your general dentist. READ MORE
Please visit your general dentist and that will fix it for you. If your bracket is in the way, your orthodontist will remove it and replace it after your dentist will fix your tooth. READ MORE
You can’t floss directly so you should use a floss threader, but it is just as effective and much easier to use an air or a water flosser like Waterpik READ MORE
If you followed your oral hygiene instructions, braces will not cause cavities. READ MORE
Good oral hygiene and a visit to your general dentist for regular cleanings and to your periodontist for deep cleanings READ MORE
Absolutely! The benefit from an information your orthodontist gains from an X-ray far outweighs the risk. READ MORE
It depends on how complicated your case is, and everybody is different. I would recommend going for an orthodontic consultation and being evaluated by a professional to know how long your case will take. READ MORE
If the retainer is new and it hurts a lot, you should see your doctor to find out why. If you have not worn it in a while, you should see your doctor and get a new one that fits well. READ MORE
You can get an Invisalign treatment with an implant understanding that that tooth will not move and, if it is a front tooth implant it's replacing, its crown may need to be redone. READ MORE
Retention is a lifetime issue. If you have been out of treatment for over a year, it is sufficient to sleep with your retainers a couple of nights per week. If you will ever just stop wearing your retainers, your teeth will shift. READ MORE
It depends how severe your overbite is. Average treatment time being 12-18 months. READ MORE
In some cases, you can have braces on just the front teeth, it depends on what the doctor is trying to correct. READ MORE
It depends on how displaced that one tooth is. There are multiple ways to address minor issues and you should consult with an orthodontist. READ MORE
Braces do move your teeth every day. Changes are gradual, but happen all the time. READ MORE
If you follow your orthodontist’s instructions on how to keep your teeth clean you will not get plaque under your braces. READ MORE
You should be wearing your aligners 22 out of 24 hours/day. You can eat snacks with your aligners in, but you would have better time eating main meals without aligners. If you eat with your aligners, please take them out after to rinse them and your mouth. READ MORE
