Traditional braces are the most widely used, and the most economical orthodontic option. Braces use constant force and pressure to slowly move teeth into proper alignment over time. Using brackets, archwire, bonding material, and ligature elastics, commonly known as O-rings, Dr. Hodges is able to correct malocclusion and help patients improve their oral health. If you are in need of braces, please look at our various Philadelphia-area practices.

Specialized Wilckodontics® appliances are used to move the teeth, and once in position they are held in place to allow the remodeled supporting bone around the teeth to harden. Complete healing usually takes about eight months, leaving the patient with a dazzling, permanent smile.



Invisalign combines the orthodontic results of traditional braces with cosmetic advances that create appliances which are nearly invisible.
