Finding Orthodontic Treatment

TREATMENT TO SUIT YOUR NEEDS AND LIFESTYLE

Traditional braces are one of the most effective ways to straighten moderately to severely misaligned teeth. They consist of individual brackets made from metal or clear ceramic, secured to the front of the teeth and connected by a pliable archwire. The wire places pressure on the teeth to progressively shift them into alignment.

icon

If you looking for a more discreet method of care, you may consider Invisalign®, which involves the use of a series of clear plastic aligners. These orthodontic trays fit snugly over the teeth, incrementally bringing them into alignment. Invisalign is considered more comfortable than traditional braces and can be just as effective for qualifying patients.

Retainers are custom designed to fit snugly around the teeth and to help maintain their position following orthodontic treatment. Different types of retainers are available, including clear acrylic trays or metal wires attached to a plastic base. When properly worn, retainers prevent the need for re-treatment and keep your smile looking beautiful for decades to come.

Dental appliances, such as headgears, are used to fix more complicated alignment issues such as overbites and underbites. With innovations in orthodontics and an improved level of care, these appliances are more subtle and comfortable than ever, allowing patients to straighten their teeth without wearing bulky pieces of equipment.

What To Expect

THE ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT PROCESS

invisalign

Consultation

The process begins with an orthodontist performing a comprehensive oral exam and discussing your goals and lifestyle before determining the optimal form of treatment. We then design a custom plan to correct your misalignment issues, and we provide you with an estimated time frame for treatment.

Begin Treatment

Depending on the orthodontic method, we will have your custom aligners fabricated or attach your brackets and wires. When treatment begins, you can expect some tenderness and sensitivity for a few days while you adjust to the added pressure.

Adjustments

Over the course of several appointments, the orthodontist checks the progress of your teeth and makes adjustments to the orthodontic system. This may involve changing the archwire, modifying your aligner trays, or adding bands and elastics to encourage movement.

Concluding and Maintaining Treatment

When the ideal adjustments are achieved, the orthodontist will remove any fixed appliances and brackets and design a retainer to help support the teeth in their new position. You will be instructed to wear the retainer at all times except during meals for several months before reducing wear to nighttime.

Orthodontic care is customized to address the unique needs of each patient. The treatment process involves the following steps at our Chicago, IL, practice...
