Traditional Orthodontics

The American Association of Orthodontics recommends visiting the orthodontist around the age of seven. By this age, most children have both primary (baby) teeth and permanent (adult) teeth, which makes it easier to diagnose and correct tooth and jaw problems sooner and without surgical intervention. Not all children need orthodontic treatment, but an evaluation with your doctor in Roselle, IL is necessary to determine which children can benefit from treatment.

Although it is easy to understand the cosmetic benefits of straight teeth, many do not realize the health benefits associated with straightening your teeth. When teeth are in malocclusion or are misaligned, they are more susceptible to bacteria build up, cavities and periodontal disease. When teeth cannot be cleaned properly, they have an increased risk of mobility and eventual tooth loss.

Orthodontics today is innovative and not how most adults remember it as kids! Orthodontics used to consist of large metal bands that were placed around each tooth. Today, the materials are much less noticeable and are designed to move teeth more efficiently. Your doctor in Roselle, IL will discuss your different treatment options and what is best for you!
