Orthodontic Treatment For Adults in Woodside, PA
Straight teeth have become the norm for professionals in a work environment. While it gets expected from adults, many did not have access to orthodontics as children. Some may have developed dental problems in adulthood. You may be feeling like it is too late to fix your teeth, and braces are an intimidating thought, but it doesn’t have to be! It is never too late to begin your orthodontic treatment.
Here at Yardley Orthodontics, we offer traditional braces and orthodontic treatments for kids and adults in Woodside, PA and the surrounding areas.
If you ignore your orthodontic needs, your problem will end up being more severe and costly. Don’t let your current situation get out of hand.
Here at Yardley Orthodontics, we can help you:
- clean and maintain teeth
- reduce tooth decay, bone loss and gum disease

Today, braces are not what they used to be. They were large metal braces or metal bands that were on every tooth, which caused discomfort. You now have options. Braces are much smaller, and it gives adults more options.
One of the options we have for you is “clear braces,” which are ceramic in conjunction with white-coat fillers. Next, you can choose to try Invisalign, laboratory-fabricated clear aligners. These superb aligners use a succession of clear aligners to straighten your teeth. These completely clear and removable aligners are an excellent option for adults and children who want to straighten their teeth.
Adult orthodontic treatment is more complicated because of existing restorations, compromised periodontal conditions, and medical conditions. When an adult’s facial bones finish growing, facial surgery may is needed through orthognathic surgery (orthodontics with facial surgery). The surgery is to correct skeletal problems.
Adult orthodontics can be complicated, so patients need to seek treatment with a specialist with training beyond that of dental school. Orthodontists spend four years at an ADA accredited dental school and goes for an additional two to three years of orthodontist training.
This is why Dr. James Riesenberger is the man for the job. He is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), the Mid-Atlantic Society of Orthodontics (MASO), the American Dental Association (ADA), and the Pennsylvania Dental Association (PDA).
As a top 100 premier provider of Invisalign, Dr. James Riesenberger also exclusively provides Incognito, Lingual Braces/hidden braces.
Invisalign and Incognito

Clear aligners get created for each patient using 3-D computer-generated imaging technology. Dr. Riesenberger and Align Technology work together to align teeth. Invisalign is a clear aligner that will have minimal impact on your day-to-day life. They are easy to use and fit comfortably – you won’t even know it’s there!
There are no braces, bands, or wires with these clear aligners. Invisalign is the perfect replacement for braces for adults (and teens) who want to get their teeth straightened.
The advantages of Invisalign far outweigh those of braces:
