Savannah Orthodontic Care

Providing the treatments you need for a smile you’ll love.

Our Modern Treatments

Each treatment is carefully designed and crafted to bring you precise, comfortable care.

Early Treatment

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends all children undergo an orthodontic examination by age 7. At this time, your child will have a mixture of baby and permanent teeth, so you orthodontist will be able to detect any current or potential issues.

Most children will not require any treatment, but there are some signs indicating your child should see an orthodontist:

  • Crowded teeth

  • Misaligned teeth

  • Underbite or overbite

  • Early baby tooth loss

  • Finger or thumb habits

  • Mouth breathing

  • Hard time chewing or biting

  • Protruding teeth

These symptoms, if not corrected, could lead to more severe problems as they get older. Being proactive and solving minor issues will prevent poor bites from developing, which can damage the teeth and gums. Correcting crowding or misaligned teeth will also help your child keep his or her teeth healthy, as straight teeth are easier to clean.

No matter what your child needs, our experienced team will guide you through the process.

Adult Treatment

“Over 25% of orthodontic patients are adults looking to improve their smiles.”

Did you know that a large portion of our patients are adults? Braces are no longer just for kids. In fact, the most common saying we hear is, “I regret not doing this earlier!” We don’t want you to have any regrets but rather have a beautiful, functional smile you are proud of.

If you have healthy bone structure and gums, then tooth alignment can be changed, no matter your age. Adult orthodontics is on the rise because of the positive impact it has on self-esteem and overall health. Plus, we can give you a range of treatment options to choose from, including discreet aligners.

At Broderick, Dusek & DeLeon Orthodontics, we offer modern treatment for crooked teeth and improper bite, which could lead to issues like tooth decay, TMJ, or even bone loss. What’s more, thanks to our dental technology, we can provide you with treatment that is comfortable, efficient, and reduces your need for follow-up appointments.

‘‘We have been very happy with all of the doctors and staff. The office staff is very efficient and understanding if you have to cancel/rearrange appointments. Would highly recommend to anyone.’’

Braces

Braces are the most common form of orthodontic treatment we provide due to their effectiveness and various forms. As part of our Savannah orthodontic care, we are proud to offer three types of braces for people of all ages.

Metal Braces – Made from high-grade stainless steel, these are the most common type of braces. Due to advances in today’s technology, these braces are smaller, more attractive (you can choose colors), and more comfortable.

Ceramic Braces – These braces are more discreet due to their clear color, which makes them more popular with our adult patients.

Invisalign® – This clear aligners system uses trays that are computer generated to fit your bite. These aligners gradually move your teeth into position and help with bite problems.

Retention

When we remove your braces, we will begin the retention stage of your treatment. The retention phase lasts for a minimum of 24 months. Your final orthodontic result depends on your retainers, so follow through with the hard work you’ve put in so far.

Remember to remove your retainer before brushing and brush your retainer before placing it back in your mouth. This will keep it clean and make it taste better.

If you have any questions during this stage, please speak to any of our team members at our Savannah, Wilmington Island, Pooler, Swainsboro, or Bluffton locations.

What to Do in Case of Emergency

Appliances can occasionally break or loosen, but don’t panic, we have you covered.

If you have a loose bracket or band, wires are causing discomfort, or you lose a separator, please call our office to make an appointment. We will do our very best to create a timeslot to see you as soon as possible.

If you feel your emergency needs to be addressed immediately, call one of our caring orthodontists directly.
