A Board Certified Orthodontist and a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, Dr. Charles Gemmi has been a practicing orthodontist with Orthodontics Limited since 2000 and is a member of the teaching staff at Einstein Medical Center. Orthodontics Limited is a Diamond+ Provider of Invisalign in Philadelphia and Hatboro, PA.

The COVID-19 lockdown has changed the way we do most things. This includes our need for an orthodontics expert to manage various treatments related to our teeth alignment, which have most likely been put on hold for the last few months. Luckily for you, modern technology can bring orthodontics experts within your reach with the possibility of virtual orthodontic treatments through Orthodontics Limited.

Despite being mostly social media-based, the virtual treatments by professionals at Orthodontics Limited are designed to be as close to an office visit as possible.

Here is a guide to the 5 reasons you should consider Orthodontics Limited for your virtual orthodontics exam. Our services offer a range of support for people on different levels of orthodontic care, from help with cleaning to advice about the maintenance of various appliances. Before you get started, learn about these reasons to contact us today.

1. Our commitment to learning

As with any health professional, you want to know that your orthodontists are devoted to learning and educating others. At Orthodontics Limited, our staff teaches at the Albert Einstein Medical Center so that new orthodontists can benefit from our years of experience.

As a member of the Greater Philadelphia Society of Orthodontists, our president, Dr. Gemmi, works to educate the region’s new orthodontists with seminars and guest speakers.

If you’re looking for virtual orthodontics treatments, you should be looking for educators most of all. Orthodontics Limited can provide them.

2. Certification and recognition

Orthodontics Limited is certified by the American Board of Orthodontics, which has a voluntary certification process that testifies to its recipients’ devotion to orthodontics technology and learning.

Each of the three doctors at Orthodontics Limited are certified by the ABO, despite the fact that less than half of all orthodontists in the United States hold that distinction.

In addition, Orthodontics Limited has been featured in Philadelphia Magazine for the last eight years in a row as one of our recognized top orthodontists.

3. Local and caring

Even if your appointments are virtual, you want an orthodontist that cares about serving their local community. Orthodontics Limited has been serving the greater Philadelphia area for over 20 years with our personalized care and genuine passion.

4. Invisalign services

The COVID-19 lockdown has made it impossible for those with Invisalign braces to get the treatment they need. Orthodontics Limited recommends stretching them out a bit by wearing each set for 14 days rather than the recommended 10 days until we get a chance to reopen.

The resources on our site that detail these procedures are evidence for the amount care for our patients. We are certified as Invisalign Diamond Plus Orthodontists, which means we see more than 250 Invisalign patients every year.

Not only are we in the top one percentile of Invisalign treatments in the country, we are the only Diamond+ office in Pennsylvania, which is a testament to our devotion and expertise. Even if you have to drive a little ways, our certifications warrant it.

5. Virtual Orthodontic Services

Orthodontics Limited has made our orthodontics experts available to patients for virtual exams via FaceTime, Skype, Instagram, Facebook, and even text messaging, which is an unprecedented level of patient care in these trying times.

We assure patients that though our offices are closed, we are making ourselves available virtually. Patients are advised to continue their treatment by taking extra care to avoid sticky or hard foods.

Patients in their Invisalign and Invisalign Teen care programs are advised to extend the duration of each tray until the offices reopen. Those with braces are advised to increase their flossing and fluoride rinsing regimens, as well as changing their food habits to avoid breaking their appliances.

6. Our website

We also post orthodontic advice in our FAQs.

For example loose, poking, or broken wires could also be a problem for patients who no longer have access to their doctor. The Orthodontics Limited site advises some DIY tips for some common problems.

Wax can be used to make protruding pieces less painful for the time being. A small pair of tweezers can make minor adjustments if you’re careful, such as removing or moving an elastic piece of the braces that has gotten in the way of the wire or your gums.

This also goes for wires that have become loose altogether: if you’re careful, you might be able to move it back in place yourself, something that the Orthodontics Limited doctors can help you with if you contact us through our virtual orthodontic treatment options.

Patients with retainers are also advised to keep wearing them for as long as they’re comfortable. If retainers cause pain, they should not be worn as this can damage your teeth and gums.

The Takeaway

A virtual orthodontics exam seems like a strange new experience, but the COVID-19 lockdown has changed many aspects of our lives – it should be no surprise that our orthodontics care is changing too. Your ability to get your Invisalign braces checked by an orthodontist virtually, however, is not a luxury afforded to everyone.

Orthodontics Limited has been providing quality care for its patients for over 20 years and these virtual exam and treatment services through Facebook, Instagram, Skype, and other communication methods are another signpost to our devotion to our customers’ well-being. Our orthodontics experts are devoted educators as well as experienced doctors, devoted to treating the greater Pennsylvania area as well as any of our patients who contact us virtually.

Don’t try to grin and bear it through pain related to broken braces or ill-fitting retainers. Schedule a virtual exam or treatment session with one of Orthodontics Limited’s experts to figure out the steps you need to take to be pain-free during the interim between treatments, to get advice on the problems you’re having with your individual treatments, when you can expect to be able to return to the office, and what steps you can take now to stay healthy.
