Your Home For Family Orthodontics
Having a straighter smile can improve your oral health and boost your self-confidence. It’s never too late to consider orthodontics! Philadelphia, PA families can access comprehensive braces and orthodontic options right here at Total Dental Care instead of trying to find a 3rd party provider.
Choosing the Right Type of Orthodontics
Philadelphia patients of Total Dental Care are able to select the best type of braces for their lifestyle, age, and budget. Depending on what your goals and needs are, you have a variety of choices to select from.
Traditional Braces — Conventional orthodontics can be completed by our family dentists, preventing your family from having to be referred elsewhere.
Clear Orthodontics and Aligners — Translucent and tooth-colored orthodontics are the perfect solution when you want to straighten your teeth without the rest of the world knowing that you’re in braces!
Six Month / Accelerated Ortho — Cosmetic braces allow us to straighten the teeth at the front of your mouth, making your smile look straighter when you’re talking and smiling. Because the orthodontics are focused on a smaller portion of your bite, treatment can be completed in as little as 3-6 months.
Why Straighter Teeth Matter
Having a properly aligned bite isn’t just about aesthetics. Proper occlusion (biting patterns) affects the function of your jaws and how efficiently you can clean around your teeth. Crowded and misaligned bites are at a significantly higher risk of developing secondary problems such as:
- Gum disease
- Tooth loss
- TMJ disorder and headaches
- Worn, broken teeth
To learn more about the types of braces we offer at Total Dental Care, schedule an orthodontic consultation at our Philadelphia practice. We offer orthodontic screenings as young as age seven. Whether you’re recently retired or have a high schooler, you’ll find a place for your smile right here with our experienced dental team.
