Orthodontist Services

Many people in the Pittsburgh area turn to our orthodontist services for a straighter smile. Our orthodontist has years of experience using braces to help children and adults achieve straight teeth. And we can do the same for you.

At Allegheny Health Network (AHN), we offer all of the latest options. We also coordinate with other AHN dental specialists whenever necessary to help you get excellent results.

What is an orthodontist?

An orthodontist specializes in fixing problems that happen when your teeth are out of alignment. Straight teeth are easier to keep clean, which lowers your risk for cavities and gum disease. They also help your jaw work efficiently so you can avoid joint and muscle problems.

Our orthodontist treats problems such as:

  • Overbites: When you have an overbite, your front upper teeth cover your lower teeth when you bite down.
  • Underbites: If you have an underbite, your lower teeth cover your front upper teeth when you bite down.
  • Overcrowding: This condition happens when there are too many teeth in the same area of the jaw.
  • Tooth spacing problems: You may have a gap between two teeth that are next to each other. This problem can occur if you lose a tooth and do not replace it with an artificial one — the remaining teeth on either side may tilt towards the open space.
