Better Biting, Better Eating, Better Smiling, Better Oral Health With Surgical Orthodontics Philadelphia, PA
Patient in Dentist Chair with Orthodontist

If you are experiencing jaw abnormalities, they can affect several aspects of your life. Jaw abnormalities can lead to a compromised bite, which makes eating certain foods a challenge. Jaw abnormalities can also lead to an unbalanced or even painful smiling experience.

Jaw abnormalities can also cause you to have difficulties in closing your lips. This means your mouth is open a majority of the time, which can lead to drooling, dry mouth and an increased risk of caries and infection.

Factors That Affect Your Ability To Chew And Smile Properly

  • Open Bite
  • Protruding Teeth
  • Overbite
  • Narrowed Palate Roof

One solution for jaw abnormalities is surgical orthodontics. With this procedure you can achieve facial balance and improved biting and eating almost immediately. Surgical orthodontics is coupled with orthodontic treatment performed by Dr. Neil. Surgical orthodontics is achieved through the collaboration of a maxillofacial surgeon and Dr. Neil coordinating a treatment plan.

A Typical Surgical Orthodontic Procedure

  1. A treatment plan is formulated between Dr. Neil and a maxillofacial surgeon.
  2. Treatment begins with braces.
  3. Braces are worn for 6-18 months to prepare for the upcoming surgery.
  4. Surgical procedure performed with the braces on.
  5. Braces continue to be worn until all adjustments and improvements are securely in place.

If you’re experiencing jaw abnormalities, contact Dr. Neil at Broad Street Braces to see if surgical orthodontics is right for you or your child. Dr. Neil works with several teams of other surgeons in the area to help you achieve a better bite, smile and oral health.

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.
