Brace Yourself for the Facts on Orthodontics
The term orthodontics is derived from the Greek "orthos," meaning straight or proper, and "odous" meaning tooth. Orthodontics is the field of dentistry that specifically deals with tooth 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, jaw, and gums. At the orthodontic practices of Dr. Kellyn Hodges, serving the Philadelphia area, we understand the need for proper occlusion, as well as the desire to obtain an aesthetically pleasing smile. Dr. Kellyn Hodges has years of advanced specialty education and training in orthodontics, and practices state-of-the-art orthodontic techniques.
Orthodontics We Offer
At Dr. Hodges' orthodontics practices, there are a range of treatments from which to choose. During your personal consultation, the doctor will tailor a treatment plan that is ideal for your individual orthodontic needs, as well as your budget.
- Traditional Braces
- Adults Braces
- Fast Acting Adult Braces
- Retainers Only Treatment
- Wilckodontics ®
- Invisalign ®
With such an array of available treatment options, we are able to resolve most orthodontic issues. Depending on the type of orthodontics chosen, treatment time varies from a few months to a few years; however, following orthodontics treatment, all patients will need to wear a retainer to prevent the teeth from reverting back to their former state. After a personal consultation with Dr. Hodges, we will be able to give you a better idea of your treatment options and how we can help.
