Are you unhappy with the straightness of your teeth? Are you thinking about orthodontics to treat your misaligned teeth? A recent study prepared for Invisalign by Harris Poll stats that almost 80% of patients who finished orthodontic treatment felt that by straightening their teeth was one of the most life-changing decisions that they ever made. For most people the main reason to straighten their teeth is for improving their appearance and gaining more confidence, but there are also more significant health benefits that most people don’t realize. Here are the top 3 health benefits for straight teeth.

EB85A714-3496-43E2-B06D-D8141FFE38F9_pub_th

1. Straight teeth are easier to clean. When you brush your teeth twice a day and floss once a day it is easier to clean your teeth when they are straight rather than crooked or crowded. When your teeth are crowded it’s more likely for bacteria to get caught in between and cause cavities. If the bacteria that builds between your teeth is not removed daily then plaque builds up in the gum line and can cause gum disease. Signs of gum disease are red, swollen or bleeding gums, receding gums, bad breath and eventual tooth loss. This is why it’s so important to maintain healthy oral hygiene habits.

2. Straight teeth create healthy bites. The purpose of getting orthodontics according to the ADA is to create a healthy bite. When your teeth don’t align properly it can cause oral health problems such as; tooth decay, impaired speech and chewing, uneven wear to the tooth enamel, jaw pain, chips or cracking of your teeth. At your next appointment ask your dentist how they can save your smile from any premature wear and prevent any future dental issues.

3. Straight teeth and a healthy smile contribute to your overall health. There are two main areas that contribute to your overall health and that’s your mental health and your physical health. When it comes to your mental health happiness is key and smiling makes you happy! When you have a beautiful straight smile, you’re more likely to smile which in turn will make you happier. By straightening your teeth, you will be more confident in your every day life. The next area is your physical health. Your oral health impacts your overall health. When you have bad oral health, it can lead to gum disease and allow oral bacteria to enter your bloodstream. Gum disease can also lead to heart disease, diabetes and other systemic diseases.

Now that you know the importance of having straight teeth it’s time to ask your dentist or orthodontist about Invisalign. Invisalign is the new faster way of straightening your teeth without the embarrassment of having bulky metal braces in your mouth. Give us a call today to set up a free new patient consultation and find out how Philly Dentistry can help your overall health and confidence 215-568-6222.

invisible braces invisalign pixYou want straight, healthy teeth? Here’s how to understand exactly what to ask your dentist!

When choosing a dentist or orthodontist to complete your clear aligner therapy, you want to make sure that they have a lot of experience with Invisalign. The more cases that have been completed by the dentist, the more knowledge the dentist has and the better they can help you and more predictably treat your case. When visiting a dentist and considering Invisalign, make sure to ask the following questions during your consultation:

  1. How long have you been certified as an Invisalign Dentist?
  2. How many Invisalign cases have you done? How many in the last 6 months? Do you have any awards from Invisalign?
  3. Can I see some before and after pictures of some of your Invisalign Patients that have the same or a similar situation as me?
  4. Are there any alternatives for my smile? Do you offer those alternatives?
  5. How many Invisalign patients did you see this week? This number should be at least 5 for a practice that is well-equipped and knowledgeable on Invisalign.
  6. Do you offer any sort of warranty or guarantee? In our office we stand behind our work 100%. We want you to be happy with the level of care, service, and dentistry that we provide and will work with you until you are satisfied.
  7. Is the dentist passionate about Invisalign? The enthusiasm a dentist and the staff have for his/her work will be evident throughout your entire consultation. Don’t settle for anything less than what you deserve. Go with your gut instinct.
  8. Are your fees comprehensive or should I expect other additional costs?
  9. Are retainers included at the end?
  10. Do your fees include X-rays that are necessary to be taken?
  11. Are refinement trays (extra trays to verify the teeth are straight) included or do I have to pay additional fees at the end?
  12. Am I a candidate for Invisalign Express treatment through Invisalign 5 or Invisalign 10 or am I a comprehensive case?
  13. Will I need to have attachment buttons placed on the front teeth? How noticeable will they be?
  14. Do you anticipate there to be a lot of Interproximal Reduction (slimming between the teeth) for my situation and will this increase my risk for cavities? Interproximal reduction is when the dentist creates space to help the teeth move. This is not painful and is necessary in many cases.

Make sure to do your research before choosing your provider. You should always feel comfortable in a dental setting and understand each step of the process.

We at Philadelphia Dentistry have more experience in Invisalign than all other dentists in the Philadelphia region. See us for the experience, the best treatment, the shortest treatment time and the most predictable results.

During the whole month of July take advantage of our monthly special of $500 off Invisalign! Invisalign is the new way to straighten your teeth without the embarrassment of having metal braces. With Invisalign you have clear aligner trays that snap on and off of your teeth allowing you eat and drink whatever you please, when you please. The trays are made from a clear plastic- like material that most people hardly notice. Depending on how much your teeth needs to be straighten, each tray is worn up to 1-2 weeks. Each tray will slightly move your teeth closer to the end goal of a perfect smile. Before you decide to get Invisalign we will give you a free iTero Invisalign scan in our Center City, Philadelphia office. This scan will show what your smile will look like after Invisalign, before you even start your treatment.

Another common questions our patients ask is how long will Invisalign take? This is a case by case situation and will be different for each patient depending on how much straightening their teeth need and how good they are about wearing their trays for at least 22 hours a day. On average, a common patient can except the case to last a year. If your case includes bite correction then you can expect it to take a little longer than average.
You’re probably thinking now, what is it like wearing the trays? At first like anything new it takes some time to get used to. For the first week you can assume that you will speak with a little bit of a lisp. This is common for most patients because they are just getting used to wearing the trays and talking with them. In no time you’ll be used to wearing them and at times probably forget you have them in.

Todd L. Invisalign

When you are done with Invisalign and your teeth are looking perfect, your doctor will remove any attachments on your teeth and do another scan. After the scan they will make a clear removable retainer for you to wear at night only. This retainer will ensure that your teeth stay straight, as long as you continue to wear it each night. The great thing about Invisalign is that you are in charge of your success. The more compliant you are with your Invisalign treatment the faster you will finish and your results will look great!

Give us a call today and come in for a free new patient consultation. Don’t forget when you call to mention that you would like to get a complimentary iTero Invisalign scan and see for yourself just how perfect your teeth could be. 215-568-6222 and don’t forget to follow us on Instagram & Facebook to stay up to date on our office!

Are you too embarrassed to smile because of your teeth? Are they crooked and misaligned? Well, there is a solution and it’s called Invisalign. During the whole month of April take full advantage of our monthly special of $500 off your Invisalign treatment along with free teeth whitening custom bleach trays! Invisalign is the best way to straighten your teeth without the hassle of those old fashion metal braces. Invisalign has clear aligners that align your teeth perfectly straight so you have a healthy bite and a beautiful smile. Here’s what our patients had to say about their Invisalign experience with our office.

“If you are thinking about getting Invisalign then get it at Philadelphia Dentistry. These folks are awesome. Super friendly, professional, and the results were amazing. I highly recommend them. Don’t even think about going to look anywhere else. Just do it. YOU will not be disappointed.” –Jeff S.

“This entire practice is phenomenal, from the front desk staff, to the hygienists. If you would’ve told me five years ago that I’d be ENJOYING coming to the dentist, I would think you were crazy! But this whole practice, Eva, Malikah, Dani are the most caring, gentle, and knowledgeable people in the industry. I trust them implicitly and have never been happier with my smile and the health of my teeth. After several years as a dental patient here, I finally took the plunge and began Invisalign. I was afraid it would hurt, that it would be a pain in the neck socially, and that it would be unaffordable. Now that I’ve finished Invisilign I can say NONE of those things were an issue! A 3/10 in discomfort at most, socially was NBD at all, and with CareCredit I’m easily able to pay it off monthly.” –Robyn B.

“I love love love this place. They are so welcoming and warm. They made me feel comfortable about getting Invisalign. The process was easy. I would recommend them any day.” –Rashida S.

“I have been going here for about 10 years. I have always been very, very happy with the service, friendliness and expertise. I’m finishing up my Invisalign, and things have gone extremely well with it.” Lynn R.

Is there an age limit on getting healthy straight teeth? A very common question our patients ask our staff is, “am I too old for Invisalign?” Some patients even said they never thought to bring Invisalign up at their appointment because they assumed they were too old to get it. If you never had braces when you were younger and now you think it may be too late to get them, have no fear! If you have healthy teeth there is NO age limit on getting Invisalign.

In fact, getting Invisalign to straighten your teeth benefits anyone at any age. Straight teeth are healthy teeth and healthy teeth never go out of style. Being in your 40s, 50s, and even 60s and wanting braces doesn’t seem very appealing to anyone, but with Invisalign your clear aligner trays are practically invisible. You can have the smile you’ve always dreamed of with Invisalign!

The Invisalign process starts with one of our great providers giving you an Invisalign scan with the iTero scanner. This scan will show you what your teeth will look like after Invisalign, before you even start your procedure. By having this scanner in our office, we can start your treatment sooner than any dental office in Philadelphia.

However, our excellent doctors and providers will work with you and let you know exactly what time frame you can except with your Invisalign treatment. Our goal at Philly Dentistry is to help you be more confident in your smile at any age.

Invisalign is affordable for all ages. It’s an investment in your smile, confidence, health and happiness.

Since we have such great experience you can end up paying $1,500 to $2,000 less than what most orthodontists charge for the same exact treatment!

At Philadelphia Dentistry we are proud to say we are an Invisalign Gold+ Provider, which means we do a great amount of Invisalign cases each year. We are the largest dentistry in Philadelphia and we do the most Invisalign cases than any other dental office. By doing the most cases our doctors have the most experience when it comes to Invisalign. Take advantage of our office deal and take $500 off your Invisalign treatment. There are many reasons to get Invisalign, but here are few of the most important reasons Invisalign is the best new way to straighten your teeth.

The main reason orthodontics was invited was to give you a good bite and that is exactly what Invisalign will do for you. Invisalign’s goal is to improve your oral health so you don’t live with any pain or problems. By doing Invisalign you’ll improve your overall health along with creating a beautiful straight smile.

Invisalign can fix any jaw or neck pain you may be dealing with. Patients that are affected by grinding their teeth suffer with jaw and neck pain. By wearing the Invisalign aligners over the course of your treatment is a great way for patients to deprogram the muscles involved in grinding their teeth and relieve any symptoms.

When your teeth are straight, they are easier to clean. So, when your teeth are properly aligned from your Invisalign treatment you will get a better clean when you brush daily and go to your routine check- ups at Philly Dentistry. When your teeth are crowded, bacteria will get in-between your teeth and will be harder to remove which can lead to cavities and other dental problems. Remember straight teeth equals healthy teeth!

Invisalign aligners can double as a protective gear that you can wear the rest of your life. By wearing your aligners, you can prevent any grinding at night. Invisalign aligners can also be worn during any sporting events to protect your teeth from any accidents. Invisalign not only straightens your teeth for your overall health, it also gives you that beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. When you do Invisalign with us at Philly Dentistry we give you complementary custom-made bleach trays to whiten your smile whenever you want in the comfort of your own home. There’s no better time than now to get that perfect smile. Give us a call today to schedule your free new patient consultation and see if Invisalign is the best option for you. 215-568-6222.

One of the most popular cosmetic treatments at our dentistry is teeth whitening. We offer two whitening treatments which are both quick and easy to do.

The great thing about your bleach trays is that you can use them in the comfort of your own home.

Nowadays, people are embarrassed to get those old fashion metal braces, especially if you’re an adult. There is a solution now and it’s called Invisalign. Invisalign does the same thing metal braces will do, but on average in half the time. The best part is nobody will notice you have them in because of their clear aligners that shift your teeth into a straight beautiful smile.

Very similar to porcelain veneers, Cerinate Lumineers have the same results. Lumineers are different from veneers by the way the teeth are prepared. With Lumineers there is very little prep required because there is no need to sand away any tooth enamel like with veneers. Lumineers are a very thin layer of porcelain that are bonded to the front of your tooth and are made in any size, color, and shape that you want, which will give you an all-natural perfect looking smile.

Don’t wait any longer to have that perfect smile. Life is too short to not be completely happy with yourself. So, if there is something small or something big you want to change about your smile Philadelphia Dentistry is the best choice for any cosmetic or general dentist need. Give us a call at 215-568-6222 for a free new patient consultation and see how we can change your life!
