"Great first dental experience. They were very timely when I got there, and everyone I interacted with was professional and friendly. The whole process was super smooth (and the cleaning was the most painless cleaning I've had) so I had no concerns scheduling my next appointment right away."- R.R. / Google / Jun 16, 2022
"I have been a member of Grove Dental for many years. Recently the office has been experiencing a high turn over and some notes in my chart didn’t seem to be clear with payment information which had me stressing. I was told I needed to speak to the office manager to move forward. I thought it was the same manager who already knew about my account, but found out he was also no longer with the practice . I was told there was a new office manager named Keisha and she would call me back when she was free and able. She had called me back right away with such a welcoming and friendly voice. I explained to her my frustrations . She actually did her investigations before calling me back so she new everything without me having to explain which made me feel so at ease knowing we were on the same page. She assured me things will be ok and also helped me schedule for my following appointment right away. I’m so glad Keisha is part of the Grove Dental Team. She seems to be doing an amazing job as their new office manager. I’m so grateful for her help!"- G.T. / Google / Jun 07, 2022

"I’d like to start out by saying that the quality of work done by both the hygienists and the dentists is top notch. They also use the latest technologies and the office is very clean and comfortable. My hygienist Jenna is phenomenal - smart, thorough, personable. She’s one of the main reasons that I keep coming back despite living in the Philly area now. In terms of the quality of dental work - you can’t beat it here.I’m giving four instead of five stars, however, because I also had a billing issue last year that ultimately cost me almost double what their original outlined cost was. I paid a fairly hefty amount out of pocket for a crown as my insurance didn’t cover it all, and I paid that amount outright the day the procedure was performed. Months go by and I suddenly receive another considerable bill in the mail. Assuming it was a mistake, I called and the billing employee informed me that the insurance wasn’t paying as much as they originally quoted and it was due to the fact that Grove dental made a mistake, as the verbiage/info around this is apparently usually on the insurance company’s homepage, but in my insurance’s case it wasn’t as immediately explicit on the homepage of their site and Grove dental overlooked it. I found this very frustrating particularly because customers like myself rely on our dentist/ their billing department to handle the insurance end and present customers with accurate costs. Despite the fact that their billing department made the mistake, I ended up paying the price for it. Outside of the one poor billing experience I explained above, I’ve otherwise always had an excellent experience with Grove Dental and have been a customer with Wyomissing/Grove Dental since I was a kid. If you’re looking for superior dentists and hygienists who really do great work, look no further."- I.S. / Yelp / May 19, 2022
Are Adult Braces Right for You?
Many adults are great candidates for braces, including those who experienced a relapse after wearing braces in their youth, who lacked access to orthodontic care, or who developed orthodontic concerns later in life. Braces may be recommended to resolve a number of functional and aesthetic concerns affecting the smiles of adults. These may include:
- Gaps between teeth
- Crooked or crowded teeth
- Rotated or tipped teeth
- Protruded teeth
- Bite issues (like overbite, underbite, crossbite, and open bite)
When it comes to braces for adult patients, there are a couple of factors we must take into consideration. The jawbones of adults are fully developed and may be more challenging to manipulate if a significant amount of jaw alignment is necessary. Furthermore, a greater number of adults have gum (periodontal) disease — a condition that often affects the underlying jawbone. Bone loss and the presence of active periodontal infection can inhibit the success of orthodontic care. Before getting started with any adult orthodontic treatment plan, our team will provide a thorough evaluation and help you understand your options.
Treatment Options for Adults
Grove Dental Group and Orthodontics is proud to bring full-service orthodontic care to meet the needs and busy schedules of our adult patients. During your initial orthodontic consultation, our team will take digital x-rays, 3D intraoral scans, and photos so that we can fully evaluate your individual needs. We can then help you determine the best treatment option to help you meet your orthodontic needs and personal goals for your smile. Our skilled orthodontists offer several options for adult braces and orthodontic care, including:
- Invisalign: A highly discreet option that gently moves the teeth into proper alignment through a series of clear, removable aligner trays
- Traditional braces: A common approach that corrects orthodontic issues through the use of ceramic or metal brackets and archwires
- Retainers: Post-orthodontic appliances that help hold the teeth in their new position once the active phase of adult orthodontics is complete
The Adult Orthodontic Process
Once your orthodontic treatment begins, we will have you visit our office on a periodic basis for adjustments (as needed) and progress checks. While the time adults spend wearing braces varies among patients, most wear braces (on average) for 1 – 3 years. Once we have performed a full evaluation, our team will be able to provide you with a general timeframe for your care. Adhering to a meticulous routine of brushing and flossing each day and keeping up with routine dental cleaning and check-up visits at Grove Dental Group and Orthodontics is highly important for your oral health and overall results. At the end of your treatment with braces, our team may recommend that you wear a retainer to help keep your teeth properly aligned within your smile.
Insurance Coverage for Adult Braces
Insurance coverage for adult braces and orthodontic care varies by individual plan. After your treatment consultation, our financial coordinator can provide a complimentary benefits analysis and determine if there may be any out-of-pocket costs for your treatment. Grove Dental Group and Orthodontics offers convenient financial solutions through CareCredit and Wells Fargo and accepts a variety of easy payment options. We can help you find a solution that best meets your needs and budget.
