Orthodontic care has been around for a long time, but it’s never been as good as it is today. New technologies and techniques make it possible for more people to straighten their teeth and improve their smiles. If you are thinking about this treatment for yourself or someone you love, schedule a visit with our dentists in Orland Park, IL.
Why do people use orthodontics?
Many people get orthodontic care because they want to improve the appearance of their smiles. However, that’s just one of the benefits of having straighter teeth. We have witnessed the way patients have become more confident upon completing their orthodontic care. We also can say that straight teeth are good for your oral health because they make it easier to brush and floss to remove bacteria, plaque, and food particles.
Can adults benefit from orthodontics?
Yes, they can and many of our patients have. You are never too old to get your teeth in line. If you are interested in getting the treatment you didn’t receive when you were younger, we can help. We also can help if your teeth have relapsed (moved back to their crooked positions) as you’ve gotten older.
What orthodontic treatments do you offer?
At Smiles of Orland Park, we are proud to offer three excellent options for our orthodontic patients. This starts with traditional metal braces, which work on practically any alignment problems you may have with your teeth. Ceramic braces offer an alternative to metal braces, which many people prefer. You also might try Invisalign clear aligners to create the smile of your dreams.
