A Good Time to Get Braces Philadelphia, PA
Dental Procedures Philadelphia PA

It is difficult to tell if mask-wearing days are over or not. Unfortunately, it appears that they may not be over yet. The good news is that if you have to wear a mask and you have been considering getting braces, now may be the perfect time. Self-conscious people may hesitate to get braces because of their appearance. So, if you are one of these people, and you are going to wear a mask, this may work to your advantage.

Brackets and Wires Behind the Mask

Some orthodontic patients may need traditional braces in order to get the best results. The brackets and wires used in this type of treatment can be off-putting for some. During this time when so many people are wearing a mask when out in public, hiding your orthodontic treatment behind the mask may make the transition easier for you.

There are several types of orthodontic treatment, some of which require the brackets and wires and some that are more discreet. Unfortunately, not everyone is a good candidate for the more discreet methods of straightening teeth. But rather than let aesthetics prevent you from straightening your teeth if you need traditional braces, take advantage of the mask and have your orthodontic treatment done now.

A Safe Environment for Orthodontic Treatment

Naturally, with the coronavirus and its variants still a very real threat, people are still concerned about safety, especially in settings such as clinics and dental offices. Health practitioners, including dental professionals, have been taking extra precautions to ensure the health and safety of their patients during this time, going above and beyond the usual care and sanitation of the office environment. Broad Street Braces is no exception.

We follow guidelines provided by nationally recognized health organizations to ensure our patients and dental teams are safe and comfortable. As the pandemic ebbs and flows, we will continue to ensure the safety and well-being of our patients and staff.

Look Forward to the Big Reveal

One of the disadvantages of wearing a mask is that people do not get to see your smile. Of course, this can also be an advantage for those who are undergoing dental work like orthodontic treatment. On the other hand, when you get to leave your mask off for good, you will have a beautiful smile to reveal to the world. Your confidence will soar when you hear someone say to you, “You have a really nice smile.”

At Broad Street Braces, we will find the most effective and efficient way to straighten your teeth. Call us to schedule your consultation and discover how we can improve your smile.

I am pleased with this Orthodontist location because they are very prompt with appointments. It's never a long wait. The staff is kind and willing to fix misunderstandings quickly. They actually play relaxing music in the office. My favorite staff member is Trinh because she answers questions gracefully. Trinh always greets me with a smile. Glad I chose this dental office.

My mom received THE BEST service here. Consultations & visits were a breeze & the staff was always so kind. Their bilingual employee, Sara, was very helpful because my mom only speaks Spanish.
