We are proud to serve Brooklyn's residents and the surrounding areas with expert orthodontic care in a modern and friendly environment. We know how important having a great smile is to looking and feeling good. That's why Dr. Dolatyar and the entire team at our Canarsie Cosmetic Family Dental location are committed to providing skilled orthodontic treatment to children, teens, and adults.

We are specialists in fitting patients for conventional braces, Invisalign, and retainers.

Dr. Dolatyar often advises patients to forgo conventional braces in favor of the clear aligners offered by Invisalign. If you've always desired a beautiful smile but dreaded having to wear braces, Invisalign is the answer. The transparent, removable aligners used by Invisalign straighten your teeth more quickly than you would expect. To get a more attractive smile, you'll wear a new set of aligners every two weeks for the duration of the treatment process. In contrast to traditional metal braces, these transparent aligners may be taken out while you eat and brush your teeth. Invisalign treatment typically lasts about one year. The benefits of orthodontic treatment will last a lifetime.

Our office is currently accepting new ortho patients, and we would love the opportunity to serve you with the highest quality care. We accept most dental insurance plans, including PPO, HMO, DMO, and Union Plans.

Your treatment coordinator will work with you to determine the very best financial plan for you, based on your budget, credit history, and treatment plan.​ We offer flexible and affordable, interest-free monthly payment plans through LendingClub and CareCredit, monthly payments as low as $150 for Invisalign clear aligners.

A gadget that the orthodontist gives you to wear after your braces are removed. The retainer attaches to your upper and/or lower teeth and holds them in the correct position. You wear the retainer 24 hours a day at first then at night to make sure that none of your teeth move while your jaw hardens and your teeth get strongly attached to your jaw.


Anterior Cross Bite

Anterior cross bites occur when the upper front teeth are inside of the lower front teeth. Over time, the lower jaw grows into a forward position abnormally, thus inhibiting the growth of the maxilla (roof of the mouth or upper jaw). Once the source of the interference causing the cross bite is eliminated, the appliance guides the maxilla back into position. The front of the appliance is moved outward through the tension of an expansion screw at the base of the unit while the back teeth are used for anchorage.

Closing Gaps

When closing a diastema (gap between teeth), differing amounts of movement of the two teeth is often needed. In this application, coil springs are placed to the side of each tooth. An arch wire acts as a guide and keeps the teeth from tipping as the space is closed.

Female Case

This is a typical case of crowding. A palatal expander was used to create sufficient space in the mouth for the permanent teeth to fit properly. Braces were worn for approximately 15 months and retainers for another 3 years.

Space Maintainer

A space maintainer is a removable or fixed appliance designed to maintain an existing space. They are usually fitted to children when they have lost baby teeth early. The gap left from losing this tooth needs to be held open for the permanent tooth to erupt in its correct position.

Spring Hawley Retainer

After completing orthodontic therapy, it is not uncommon to still need a little fine tuning of tooth alignment. This is particularly true in patients who have undergone extensive orthodontic therapy and are simply "burned out."

This retainer is useful in correcting minor rotations and crowding. When worn, the spring action of the wires provide a light force to align the teeth. The appliance is constructed to the "ideal" setting and the patient's teeth adapt to their new position.
