Straighten Your Teeth with Braces in Schaumburg, IL
Orthodontics used to consist of large metal bands that were placed around each tooth in order to move the teeth. The latest materials are far less noticeable and our innovative dental technology in Schaumburg, IL enables us to move teeth faster. Orthodontic appliances today are made of metal, ceramic or plastic. They may be removable appliances or they may be brackets bonded directly to the teeth. The appliance will place a constant, yet gentle force on the teeth, which moves them into the proper position.
Metal brackets are small brackets that are bonded directly to each tooth and attached with a wire. These metal brackets and wires are far less noticeable than they used to be! Children and adults of all ages are choosing metal brackets for their orthodontic needs.
Clear or Ceramic Braces
Clear braces are similar to metal braces but are made of white material and are virtually undetectable! They bond to the front of the tooth and are connected by a wire. These braces are used mostly on older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns. They do require a little more attention, which is why Dr. Aristodemo will let you know if they are the right options for you!
The decision to straighten your teeth affects not only the appearance of your smile, but your lifestyle as well. At first impression, people associate straight teeth with good overall health and hygiene. As an adult, you may wish to enhance your smile for business or social interactions. Or, perhaps you’re a teen looking for a trendy, modern alternative to metal brackets and wires. Invisible braces for teens and adults allows you to enjoy all the benefits of straight teeth without putting your lifestyle on hold.
Invisible braces are an orthodontic treatment that uses removable alignment trays to straighten teeth. Your dentist in Schaumburg, IL will fit you with custom-designed alignment trays that slowly shift your teeth into the desired position. Every few weeks, you will receive a new set of trays until your teeth are perfectly aligned.
