Spaces, crowding of teeth, under bite, or a deep overbite are just a few of the many reasons that braces may benefit you. If you’d like to learn whether orthodontic treatment is right for you, Dr. Slutsky would be happy to evaluate your specific needs—there is no charge for an initial consultation! Simply contact our Northeast Philadelphia (Mayfair) or Bensalem office and schedule an appointment.
Keeping up to date on orthodontic technology and treatment options is a hallmark of Dr. Slutsky’s practice. Dr. Slutsky is a board-certified orthodontist (Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics). Ours was among the first offices in the country to have a 3D printer, which allows us to make our own aligners in the office. This gives Dr. Slutsky full control from start to finish of the entire process and enables him to keep his fees significantly lower than he would charge with commercially available aligners.
In addition to maintaining his private practice, Dr. Slutsky is an associate professor of orthodontics at the Kornberg School of Dentistry at Temple University. He also gives an annual continuing education course at Temple Dental and has lectured throughout the country to orthodontists and general dentists.
Orthodontic Treatment with Dr. Slutsky
Braces or clear aligners put gentle forces on teeth that slowly move them into a straight position over many months. Sometimes elastics are worn in addition to maintain steady gentle force to teeth and help them move faster. Other treatment methods include:
- Phase 1 treatment
- Surgical orthodontics
- Forsus™ appliances
- Palatal expanders
- Tongue crib
- Fixed bite plate
Length of Treatment
Most cases take approximately 18-24 months, but this varies with different patients. During your initial consultation, Dr. Slutsky will determine your estimated treatment time after evaluating your teeth-straightening needs.
Dr. Slutsky would be happy to discuss all of the different options with you in either the Northeast Philadelphia (Mayfair) or Bensalem, PA office. Schedule a free consultation to learn more.
