Young Girl Wearing Braces Philadelphia PA Do you have your back to school shopping list printed for school this fall? Have you checked it twice and tried to find the cutest backpack possible to handle all those books and supplies that you’re about to tote back and forth to school every day? It’s all exciting, a little daunting and very academic. All the buzz around school stuff can make you feel pretty smart.

One way to start school off to a smart start is by ensuring that you’re all set to go with your orthodontic care as well. Peer pressure can try to convince you that you can pause your orthodontic adjustment while you’re at school and still achieve a brilliantly aligned smile. This is false.

When Your Orthodontic Needs Go Beyond Braces

Philadelphia PA Orthodontist near meHappy New Year from our entire team at Broad Street Braces. We are proud to serve you with our innovative and caring treatments that result in your brilliant smile! We utilize many methods for teeth alignment and orthodontic treatment. Some orthodontic options we provide are:


  • Braces (metal and clear)
  • Invisalign
  • Self-Litigating Braces
  • Lingual Braces
  • Two-Phase Treatment

For many patients, these options will provide them with the correction and smile they are hoping for. However, there are times when your orthodontic treatment will require more than these corrective treatments.

Alignment Has No Age Limit!

Philadelphia PA OrthodontistsIf you look in the mirror and are dissatisfied with the alignment of your teeth, you may be wondering if you’re too old to adjust your teeth with orthodontic treatment. The good news is that orthodontic treatment has no age limits! At Broad Street Braces, Dr. Neil examines each potential patient to determine if orthodontic treatment is the right course of action.

As you age, your teeth can move and change. These changes can cause wear and tear on your teeth and mouth when you chew or bite. This can result in gradual bone loss and movement of your jaw that causes your teeth to gravitate inwards and overcrowd. Not only does this affect your appearance, but it can affect your speech and other factors as well.
