Our two local offices have the latest in orthodontic technology right on site, so you can be sure that you and your family are getting the best quality care possible.

Your First Orthodontic Exam
If you live in Jennersville, opt to have your first appointment at either one of our convenient locations. Our weekend (during the school year) and evening availability can accommodate almost any schedule. Your first consultation with us is always free, so getting starting with orthodontic treatment couldn’t be any easier.
The doctor will see you on your first visit and discuss all of your options for achieving the perfect smile for you or your children. The visit will include an exam as well as a free panoramic X-ray, which gives us the ability to see exactly what is happening in the patient’s mouth and allows us to select the optimal treatment for each individual case.
We will also make sure that you understand our fee schedule, and we will answer any questions you have about insurance policies and payment plans.
Our goal is to make our Jennersville patients feel as welcome as possible, so please let us know if we can do anything at all to make you more comfortable, now or in the future.
Jennersville Families Trust Dr. Cari When It’s Time to See an Orthodontist
Dr. Cari treats patients throughout the Jennersville, PA area who want to get the most value out of their orthodontic treatment in the shortest amount of time. We are sensitive to the needs of busy families and will suggest the treatment that will work best—and quickest.
Keep in mind that orthodontic treatment doesn’t just improve your appearance. Many oral conditions can cause pain, discomfort when chewing or difficulty in closing one’s mouth, so when it comes to misaligned teeth or a skeletal problem with your jaw, it is best to seek treatment as early as possible.
Dr. Cari and staff can successfully treat all of the following conditions:
- Bucked or protruding upper front teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Overlapped teeth
- A “deep” bite (upper front teeth cover too much of the lower teeth)
- Open bite
- Chewing problems
- Jaw misalignment
- Spaces between teeth
- Damage from thumb sucking
How Will My Teeth Get Straightened?
Orthodontists have a full toolbox of treatments at hand to create the best outcomes for the many conditions that can affect your bite and your smile. Since orthodontists only practice orthodontics, they are aware of any and all treatments that will bring out your absolute best.
Phase I orthodontic treatment is typically started between ages 6 and 10, and may employ braces or an expander to resolve minor orthodontic issues and prepare the mouth for braces down the line. Crossbites, overbites, and underbites may be corrected or partially corrected at this time.
Phase II orthodontic treatment only starts once all of the adult teeth have emerged. There are many different options for braces for you to choose from, and we even offer alternatives for adults who may want to avoid the look of braces. Not all patients require a two-phase approach. Many can be treated in one comprehensive phase.
Any protocol that we choose will gently apply pressure to crowded teeth in order to achieve the desired placement, usually in a matter of one to two years. We can give you more specific information about treatment times during your first visit.
Following our at-home instructions to the letter and keeping up with regular appointments will ensure the quickest and most successful outcome. And since we have two offices local to Jennersville, we are never more than a quick car ride away.
What About Braces?
Metal braces are still the most common means of correcting and straightening teeth, but they’ve changed a lot over the last ten to twenty years. They are now less obtrusive, smaller, and don’t trap food the way that they used to. We exclusively use self-ligating braces (usually Speed or Damon Braces) both of which are advanced appliances that work more quickly and painlessly than traditional braces.
Invisalign provides an excellent alternative for patients who wish to avoid traditional braces entirely. Invisalign aligners are created precisely and specifically for your teeth and are changed every three days to two weeks in order to gradually guide your teeth into place. They are made of a clear plastic that is discreet for adults with active social and professional lives.
