You may be considering orthodontics to aid you in achieving the straight, beautiful smile of your dreams. But you may also be discouraged by the unaesthetic and unattractive look of traditional dental. If so, clear and invisible braces may the solution you’ve been searching for. At the office of Davis Family Orthodontics, our Allendale Heights orthodontist provides gentle care in a comfortable atmosphere while utilizing the latest technological advances in dentistry to treat all phases of orthodontics for our patients of all ages.
Braces may be worn not only to improve the attractiveness of their smile, but also because braces correct improper alignment of teeth that can lead to gum disease and early tooth loss. While many people have corrective orthodontic procedures done early in their lives, it is not uncommon for adults and even seniors to undergo orthodontic treatments. In fact, currently almost 20% of all orthodontic patients are adults. At first the idea of braces as an adult may seem uncomfortable. Among the most common complaints when dealing with orthodontic treatment is that traditional metal braces are unaesthetic and unattractive, especially from our adult patients. In order to address this issue, we offer our patients invisible and clear braces. This allows our Allendale Heights orthodontists to straighten your teeth by using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners from Invisalign. They are virtually undetectable, so hardly anyone will realize you’re wearing them. These aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your doctor. Of course, we also offer traditional metal dental braces that utilize brackets and wires to gradually fix your malocclusion. The desired results are typically achieved in a shorter time period than Invisalign. Furthermore, they also come in clear and a variety of color and material choices. We can in many cases place ceramic or translucent braces which are much less noticeable. Ask the office staff about what options are available.
