How can we help you?
We love patients who ask questions because it shows a certain commitment to doing everything possible to maintain a healthy smile.
At Atlantis Dental Care, we believe that you have every right to ask questions and expect answers that help you make informed choices about dental treatments. That is why we encourage you to talk to us about any area of dental care that concerns you.
We've shared a few of the questions that we hear most frequently. But oral health is a very personal thing, and you probably have your own questions that aren't listed here.

Please don't ever hesitate to contact our Boise dental office for more information – the only silly question is the one that goes unasked!
If your teeth are misaligned, you probably already find it challenging to brush and floss them properly. Crowded teeth may make it nearly impossible to floss thoroughly. Brushing is not as effective since your brush can’t reach all surfaces of your teeth.
This lack of effective oral hygiene can lead to gum disease as the unreachable crevices give bacteria a place to thrive. Few people realize that recent studies prove oral infections caused by the buildup of bacteria may lead to more serious ailments, including heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.
Crowded bottom teeth often protrude, placing abnormal stress on the teeth they come in contact with. This, in turn, can lead to abnormal wear of dental enamel. Conversely, protruding upper teeth are more likely to crack or chip in the event of an accident.
What can I do to solve teeth crowding?
However, you do not need to live with a smile that looks unappealing and causes you discomfort. Atlantis Dental Care is proud to offer Invisalign clear braces, a discreet alternative to metal braces. Invisalign clear braces are easy to wear, and many patients achieve a straighter smile in as little as a year.
