The Importance of Investing in Traditional Braces
Braces from one of our Philadelphia area offices are an investment that many have found worthwhile due to:
Improved Oral Health
With straighter teeth, brushing and flossing become easier, which means you may face a lower risk of tooth decay and gum disease. If you suffer from overall bite misalignment, braces can reduce your risk of developing TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder. This makes it easier for you to maintain your oral health.
In the long run, you could save a significant amount of money on restorative care thanks to the results braces can provide. Braces will also dramatically improve your appearance, with priceless benefits for your confidence and overall quality of life.

Invisalign vs. Braces
Many patients would prefer to undergo Invisalign® instead of braces because it is a more discreet form of orthodontic treatment. However, braces can correct more severe tooth and bite misalignment issues than Invisalign. During a consultation, our orthodontist can determine which approach is best for your needs.
In terms of cost, Invisalign and braces are somewhat comparable. According to Oral-B, Invisalign typically costs between $4,000 and $7,400.
