Affordable, convenient, personalized orthodontic care in Pittsburgh, PA

Richard Gobbie DMD, MDS and George Deme DMD, MDS

Whether you are seeking an orthodontic consultation for your child or yourself, Pittsburgh Orthodontic Group is here to help. We offer treatments for all ages, including Invisalign® for adults and teens. One of the reasons we became orthodontists was to create a patient friendly office atmosphere committed to creating beautiful, healthy smiles.

Pittsburgh Orthodontic Group treats patients throughout the Pittsburgh area, with offices in Moon Township, Mt. Lebanon, Pleasant Hills, Scottdale, and Shadyside. No matter which office you visit, you'll find a comfortable environment, with treatments offered at affordable prices.

While the name might sound like a large organization, Pittsburgh Orthodontic Group is led by a team of two orthodontists - Dr. Rick Gobbie and Dr. George Deme. All patients are treated by one (or sometimes both) of us.

Unlike some large orthodontic practices, we insist on a doctor-centered, hands-on approach to treatment. We treat each patient and perform all work personally. From the first visit, we will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan and will be with you every step of the way.

Why Get Braces?

Why get braces?You might be thinking of getting braces because you want to be more attractive or appear more youthful. Some people get braces in order to improve their self-confidence, so they won't feel embarrassed to smile. Or maybe you had a discussion with your dentist concerning the benefits of healthy teeth and proper jaw alignment.

Crooked and crowded teeth are hard to clean and maintain. This can result in tooth decay, create or worsen gum disease and lead to tooth loss. Orthodontic problems can cause uneven wear of teeth, or painful chewing caused by excessive stress on gum tissue and the bone that supports the teeth. They can even cause misalignment of the jaw joints, commonly known as TMJ, which leads to chronic headaches and face or neck pain.

Treatment by an orthodontist can be less costly than the additional care required treating dental problems arising as a result of orthodontic problems.

For most people, a beautiful smile is the most obvious benefit of orthodontics. After your braces come off, you’ll feel more self-confident. Don't put it off any longer - the smile you dream of can be yours!
