Why Get

Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontics don’t just provide straight smiles. But straightening your smile can improve your health in many ways. Here’s how:

  • Straight Teeth Are Healthier.Once your teeth are aligned, it will be easier to keep them clean with brushing and flossing. Clean teeth are healthier, helping you prevent other oral issues, like gum disease, which can impact your overall health.

  • Straight Teeth Ensure Proper Function.Orthodontic treatment helps ensure proper function of teeth. An aligned bite not only looks good but also makes it easier for you to bite, chew, and speak.

  • Straight Teeth Improve Confidence.With orthodontic treatment from Hinsdale Ortho, you can boost your self-esteem. Increase your self-confidence as you smile with pride. A great smile can also provide you with a better quality of life, as it can help open doors and create new opportunities.

  • Straight Teeth Prevent Long-Term Health Issues.If you let oral health issues go untreated, they only get worse over time. You may be delaying necessary orthodontic treatment due to financial issues, but the truth is that these issues may develop into bigger problems and wind up costing you more in the end by paying for extensive and expensive dental procedures.

FAQs

Still have some questions or concerns? Get them answered before you take the next step and make an appointment with Hinsdale Ortho. Here are some common questions that patients have about orthodontics.

While an orthodontic visit can be helpful at any age, consider scheduling a visit when your child is around 7 years old. This is a good age because most kids have lost a few baby teeth by this time, yet they haven’t grown in many adult teeth. They are also growing in their first set of adult molars behind any remaining baby teeth. Since there are both baby teeth and adult teeth present, it gives the orthodontist a good indication of how the adult teeth will grow in once the baby teeth have been lost.

The most common types of braces include traditional metal braces, clear braces, ceramic braces, and self-ligating braces (Damon braces). Clear aligners like Invisalign and Spark may also be an option.

The treatment period will vary from person to person. For minor cases, six months may be enough. For complex cases, expect to wear your braces for 2-3 years. Your Hinsdale orthodontist can give you a better idea of what to expect.

Braces can be hard to get used to at first, but after a few days, you should be able to acclimate just fine. Playing a sport or instrument may feel a little weird at first, but it should not stop you from living your life. Mouthguards can be used to protect your mouth when playing sports.
