We Serve Patients of All Ages
We specialize in traditional orthodontics and similar procedures for both children and adults in Bala Cynwyd, Bensalem, and throughout the Philadelphia, PA, area. For children with malocclusion (a situation in which the teeth do not come together properly), braces are an ideal way to fix an imperfect bite. For adults, who currently make up 20 to 30 percent of our patients, braces can also boost your self-esteem as well as aesthetics.
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, our orthodontists can improve the appearance of your teeth while fixing poor dental alignment that can cause early tooth loss and gum disease down the road.
Your Role in Achieving Good Results
No matter what kind of care you receive at our Philadelphia orthodontist offices, it's important that you observe good oral hygiene. We recommend that you spend a few minutes each day examining your braces with a mirror to make sure they are clean and in good condition. You will need to give up certain foods such as bubblegum, hard candies, popcorn, and tough meats. This is important to ensure you do not bend the appliances or spend an excessive amount of time cleaning them.
