Happy 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)
- 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.
There are times when a person requires surgical orthodontics. It may be utilized to treat adults with improper bites, jaw alignment or other aesthetic concerns. Age is a major consideration when deciding if surgical orthodontics is right for you. Your jaw stops growing at age 18 (for males) and age 16 (for females). Your jaw must be finished growing to qualify for orthodontic surgery.
If orthodontic surgery is necessary for you, Dr. Neil will work with a maxillofacial surgeon to coordinate a treatment plan. This type of surgeon is a dental specialist that focuses on treating complex craniofacial cases that involve your mouth, jaw, skull and face.
Under the care of both the maxillofacial surgeon and Dr. Neil, you can feel confident that you are getting the best possible care in the Philadelphia area. Call and book your consultation with Dr. Neil at Broad Street Braces to see if surgical orthodontics is the right solution for you.
