At the offices of Lake Street Dental, our Roselle Illinois dentist specializes in braces of all kinds for kids and adults who need their teeth straightened. Orthodontics are used in order to align teeth that are out of alignment. Straight teeth are easier to keep clean, resulting in less tooth decay, cavities and other dental problems.
Our first goal is to make people feel happy and safe so that we can provide them with the highest quality orthodontic care. We take great pride in being able to help our patients have a brighter and healthier smile, which is why we take the time first to educate them on proper oral hygiene regimens. We check for malocclusions and then figure out the correct degree of alignment needed to straighten the teeth. The goal of braces is to correct any malocclusions or bad bites, and crooked upper or lower jaws and crowded teeth. Our Roselle Illinois dentist will then discuss with you the different types of orthodontic services offered. We have clear braces, clear aligners, such as Invisalign, and traditional braces. All three types of braces work in the same way, and the choice depends on personal preference usually.
Invisalign is one of the best types of orthodontics on the market today. It’s a revolutionary new style of braces that uses a series of clear plastic aligners that gently move teeth into their proper position over the course of treatment. The braces are virtually invisible, and the course of treatment is about the same as traditional braces, which can take anywhere from one to two years, depending on the level of alignment needed. Invisalign can be taken out and removed for special occasions, brushing and flossing. Our Roselle Illinois dentist recommends leaving Invisalign in as much as possible to get the best possible results.
