What Is Orthodontic Treatment?

Orthodontics consists of the treatments and services required to correct varying degrees of malocclusions or bite misalignment. This encompasses crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth, as well as underbites, overbites, and crossbites. Our friendly team takes the time to get to know you and actively listen to your smile goals before we craft a treatment plan to help turn your dream smile into a reality. We gently examine your teeth, gums, and jaws to determine the extent of your misalignment and the most effective treatment for you.

  • Invisalign® Clear Aligners: If you have mild to moderate bite misalignment or your teeth have relapsed after you received treatment with traditional braces, then Invisalign clear aligners may be the solution for you. The treatment consists of graduating sets of custom clear trays made from a smooth, body-safe plastic. The aligners apply gradual pressure to gently guide your teeth to their optimal positions. Due to the material the trays are made from, most people won't notice your clear aligners, allowing you to straighten your smile discreetly. To ensure the trays work properly, you will need to wear them for approximately 22 hours each day. You will change to a new set of clear aligners every two weeks. Due to the strict requirements of the treatment, we only recommend this option to those who will faithfully follow the guidelines.
  • Traditional Braces in Streamwood: Traditional braces can address mild to severe bite misalignments. Braces consist of metal wires and brackets that correct the direction of your teeth and shift them to the appropriate position. This treatment is convenient because your braces are fixed into place, so you don't have to keep track of any components. The wires and brackets are carefully cemented to your teeth, so they work nonstop, providing efficient and effective results.

Benefits of a Straighter Smile

Straightening your teeth offers more benefits than simply improving aesthetics. When your teeth are in the proper alignment, it's easier to brush and floss them, which helps prevent cavities and gum disease. Straight teeth also improve the integrity of your bite and protect your teeth from uneven wear. Our team is dedicated to your overall oral health and will only recommend orthodontic solutions that offer long-term benefits.

Orthodontics FAQs

Transforming your smile is an important decision, and it's natural to have a lot of questions. Our compassionate team encourages you to voice your questions and concerns. We are happy to provide the education and resources you need to make an informed decision regarding your treatment plan. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about orthodontics in Streamwood.

Do I have to change my diet with Invisalign clear aligners?

No. Invisalign trays are completely removable, so you don't have to give up any of your favorite foods or drinks. You will simply remove your clear aligners before you eat or drink, enjoy your meal, brush your teeth, and put your aligners back in.

If a bracket or the wire of your traditional braces break or are damaged, then call our office immediately, and we will schedule an appointment as soon as possible to fix your braces. You can apply dental wax to the affected area to cover any rough surfaces and protect the inside of your lips and cheeks.

Some people find it difficult to clean food particles that get trapped under the wire or between the brackets. You can use tools like a Waterpik® or a proxabrush, also known as a Christmas tree brush, to remove them as part of your oral hygiene routine.

If you lose a clear tray, then it's best to call our office. We will schedule an appointment to replace your aligner so you can continue with your treatment. You can wear the previous set of trays in your series until your replacement trays arrive.
