Did You Notice That Moms at DrB4Kids Are Getting Straighter and Brighter Smiles?

Dr. Russel Bechtloff, Pediatric Dentist in Langhorne, PA is helping parents look and feel better with “Smiles for Moms”

Dr. Bechtloff and the DrB4Kids Team are well known for their expertise in maintaining the dental health of children in our community. But did you know that they also straighten and whiten adult teeth?

Wearing braces as an adult may seem like too much trouble, too embarrassing or too disruptive. That’s why Dr. B treats many adults with Invisalign©, which allows straighten teeth without braces.

Making the decision to get treatment with Invisalign has many benefits:

1. Straight teeth and a beautiful smile in a reasonable amount of time without feeling self-conscious.

2. Improvement of bite and gum health during treatment with minimal impact on your busy schedule.

3. Eat anything you want. No restrictions.

4. We can both straighten and whiten your teeth.

5. Reasonable cost.

In fact, Dr. B is currently offering a $300 courtesy discount for Invisalign treatment and will also include whitening so you can show off your new straight, bright smile.

Call today and ask for the “Smiles for Moms” courtesy!

Dr. Bechtloff can straighten teeth without braces!

Dr. B. and the entire DrB4Kids team knows that for some teens, going back to school wearing braces can be awkward.  It’s tough enough being a middle school student without metal in your mouth.  Teens want to look their best for school pictures, dances, proms and all of the many social events that occur during the school year. 

At DrB4Kids, we hear you, and we have the solution. It’s called Invisalign Teen.

This state-of-the-art technique puts a smile on your teen’s face while the teeth are being straightened. The aligners are crystal clear, and molded to fit perfectly over your teen’s teeth. Invisalign Teen is so discreet that most of their friends and teachers will not even know that they’re wearing them! 

At DrB4Kids we love treating our patients with Invisalign Teen.  We think that it may be the biggest advance in orthodontics in the last 50 years!  No braces, no wires, easy cleaning and no forbidden foods. What great news!

Here’s even better news:  For a limited time only, mention that you read this blog post and we’ll take $200.00 off the fee. (We hope that puts a smile on your face too).

Please use the box below to provide us any feedback you may have. We always like to hear from our patients and parents!

What are the Benefits of Straight Teeth in Bucks County?

Langhorne, Pa   Dr.R.Bechtloff   www.drb4kids

There are many reasons why people want straight teeth. Not the least of these is the fact that crooked teeth are not the most attractive feature. While nicely aligned straight teeth can be the part of your looks that pulls everything else together, a crooked teeth smile can draw attention away from an otherwise striking appearance. A great smile is vital to your self-confidence, which in turn can improve your outlook on life in general.

However, the benefits of straight teeth do not end with just your appearance.

• Crooked teeth can interfere with proper chewing, a problem which is with you at every meal if not confronted.

• Good oral hygiene (such as regular brushing and flossing) can be much more difficult and ineffective with crooked teeth. When your teeth are not straight and evenly spaced, there is a much higher likelihood that there will be hard-to-reach spaces that do not receive the proper treatment from your daily cleaning routine. As a result, unwanted plaque and tartar can build up unnoticed. Over time, this can lead to such serious consequences as tooth decay, gum disease, or even tooth loss. Since no one enjoys spending time in the dentist’s chair having root canals, fillings, and oral surgery, it is important to stay on top of your oral hygiene.

 The good news is that at DrB4Kids we love creating beautiful straight teeth smiles and fixing crooked teeth. Orthodontics (which comes from the Greek words orthos “straight or proper” and odons “tooth”) is a special field of dentistry that concerns itself with the study and treatment of irregular bites.

An abnormal bite can be the result of uneven teeth, a jaw that is out of proportion or misaligned, or both. Crooked teeth can be brought into alignment using traditional metal braces; although they are not used as much today as they have been in the past. More popular currently are the alternatives available which are less noticeable, so that orthodontic patients do not have to sacrifice their looks in the short term to have a beautiful smile and straight teeth forever. These less conspicuous treatment options include clear ceramic braces and Invisalign™. Invisalign is a type of removable and virtually invisible aligner that fits over the teeth instead of wire being held in place by brackets.

There are a variety of orthodontic options out there today, many of which are less intrusive and visually obvious than they used to be in days past. Whether you are a parent of an adolescent with crooked teeth that need to be straightened or if you yourself are seeking improvement in your smile, we encourage visiting our office in Langhorne today. The benefits are many; you will be glad you did!
