Do You Have Severe Orthodontic Problems? Philadelphia, PA
Orthodontics Appointment and Patient

Most orthodontic issues are relatively easy to correct. Crowded teeth, a gap in the teeth or a misaligned bite are usually resolved by using the many corrective procedures available. Invisalign®, clear ceramic braces and lingual braces are comfortable and aesthetically pleasing solutions to common tooth and jaw alignment problems.

Modern corrective procedures require less treatment time, fewer appointments with your orthodontist and devices are much easier to maintain and clean. An orthodontist will recommend surgical correction if your dental complications cannot be resolved via standard methods.

How Do I know if I Need Orthodontic Surgery?

If you suffer from severe orthodontic problems, you may be a candidate for orthodontic surgery. A misaligned jaw can visually produce a severe over or under bite that noticeably affects your appearance.

A dropped or protruding chin is often viewed as an undesirable and unattractive trait. Feeling self-conscious about your looks affects your life in many ways. Romantic interactions, speaking in public and general assertiveness are much more difficult if you do not feel comfortable in your own skin.

Extreme alignment issues in the jaw and teeth affect your physical well-being. Problems with breathing and eating make daily life uncomfortable, and could impact your ability to sleep properly and follow a healthy diet. Jaw deformities affect the speech, making it harder for you to be understood and progress in society.

When Should I Seek Treatment for Extreme Dental Issues?

At Broad Street Braces, we offer orthodontic care for children, teenagers and adults. Orthodontic intervention can begin when the patient is as young as eight years old. This involves a small set of braces and a palate expander to prepare the mouth for further treatment once the full set of adult teeth have erupted.

For severe misalignment issues that require surgery, treatment should not begin until the jaw and teeth are fully formed. If surgical intervention is needed, Broad Street Braces will work in tandem with your maxillofacial surgeon to develop a treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.

This will usually involve wearing a brace for six to eighteen months prior to surgery. You will notice an immediate improvement to your facial appearance following the surgical procedure, although you may require further use of a retainer to perfect your tooth alignment and smile.

If you are concerned about your facial and/or teeth alignment, contact Broad Street Dental today for a comprehensive assessment.

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.
