What Is Orthodontics?
Focus on Proper Alignment
The term orthodontics is derived from the Greek "orthos," meaning straight or proper, and "odous," meaning tooth. This field of dentistry addresses dental misalignment and improper bite patterns, also called malocclusions. Proper occlusion, or alignment of the teeth, is crucial to the long-term health of the teeth, jaws, and gums.

"Dr Kellyn Hodges Is the Best Orthodontist in Philly"

While traditional metal braces and their components are available in several different colors, we also offer nearly invisible ceramic braces that are just as effective. The ceramic option can provide a more discreet appearance without sacrificing the effectiveness of the appliance. Regardless of your age and goals, the orthodontists at our Philadelphia-area offices can improve the appearance of your smile and fix poor dental alignment that can cause early tooth loss and gum disease down the road.
Many of our patients in the Philadelphia area consider Invisalign® a great investment for several reasons. Invisalign utilizes custom-fitted clear aligners made of sturdy, durable, clear plastic. Invisalign aligners are virtually undetectable and much more comfortable than traditional braces. Invisalign aligners are worn for about 22 hours a day and will guide misaligned teeth into position. Your orthodontist may have you wear the Invisalign aligners for about the same time as traditional options, but you can improve your appearance discreetly.
Over time, the teeth can turn and dental alignment can become crooked. Our Philadelphia orthodontists know that these changes are natural as your teeth gradually move due to the effects of aging and natural wear. Thanks to modern advancements in orthodontics, this type of dental misalignment can be corrected. With the FAAB treatment, teeth can be straightened quickly. Candidates must have fully matured jaws, relatively straight tooth roots, a well-aligned bite, and little if any crowding of the teeth. It is not a replacement for traditional orthodontics, but FAAB can restore a beautiful smile.
With Wilckodontics®, your orthodontic timeline can be reduced to one-quarter of the time of other options. Also known as Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics™ or AOO™, Wilckodontics pairs corrective orthodontics with bone remodeling at our Philadelphia practice to straighten teeth more quickly. Remodeling can be achieved by softening the supporting bone during a periodontal procedure. By making the bone more malleable, your teeth can be aligned efficiently. The procedure can also improve the strength and structure of your jaws. If periodontal work is involved, recovery may take up to 10 days.
Some cases of malocclusion and bite misalignment are complex and require a major orthodontic procedure. In other cases, however, the imperfections are relatively minor but can still be treated. In order to address mild concerns, our Philadelphia-area orthodontists offer a type of treatment that only requires retainers. We offer several types of retainers. Some are fixed in place and completely hidden behind the teeth, while others consist of clear plastic trays. Removable retainers at our Philadelphia practice should ideally be worn for at least 20 hours a day.
How Long Does Orthodontic Treatment Take?
Depending on the type of orthodontics you choose, your treatment time will vary from a few months to a year or more. An orthodontist at our Philadelphia practice will examine your teeth and provide you with your estimated orthodontics timeline.
