A Trusted Orthodontist in Bridgeville
For Dr. Sohn, orthodontics is not just about straightening teeth – it is also about the relationships that you develop over the months and years of treatment with patients and their families. At Sohn Orthodontics, our philosophy is to treat each patient as a unique individual. We develop an individualized treatment plan using the most innovative and proven techniques available.
Dr. Sohn earned her Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1992. Following graduation, she went on to pursue her Doctorate in Dental Medicine from the University of Pittsburgh, where she graduated in 1997. After three years studying at the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Sohn earned her Specialty Certificate in Orthodontics and Master of Dental Sciences in 2000.
Braces in Bridgeville are an excellent choice for correcting complex tooth issues. Since they can sometimes work faster at aligning teeth and closing gaps than other treatments might, overall treatment time may be slightly reduced. Braces with Sohn Orthodontics don’t require some of the more complex technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can, meaning Bridgeville braces are a cost-effective orthodontic option.
Traditional metal braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have here at Sohn Orthodontics. They’re made out of metal or ceramic brackets that are affixed to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics. These brackets, wires, and bands work together to apply the gentle pressure that will gradually move the teeth into the positions we want them to be in as long as you have regular adjustments with our doctors.
Invisalign is incredibly popular with both patients and orthodontists in Bridgeville and is the top alternative to traditional braces. Instead of brackets and bands, the Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and customized to fit snugly over your teeth. To keep your teeth moving in the direction you want them to, you’ll need to switch your invisible trays out for the next one in the series every 1-2 weeks as directed by Dr. Sohn. The Invisalign system can only work if the recommended guidelines are followed exactly! Aligners should be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment. If patients neglect to wear the aligners as directed, it can impede the results and also add time to the orthodontic process.
Invisalign is at its most efficient when correcting many of the most common orthodontic issues. For some complex cases, Invisalign may not be a good option. A free consultation with Dr. Sohn at Sohn Orthodontics in Bridgeville will allow us to determine your eligibility for Invisalign.
