Your Elmhurst Orthodontist
As a board-certified orthodontic specialist, I am committed to helping my patients with all their orthodontic needs. I am proud to offer FREE consultations with panoramic and cephalometric X-rays, pictures, digital 3D scans, and 3D CBCTs for patients of all ages.
With so many orthodontic treatment options, I will help you sift through the clutter, discuss multiple options and select what fits your lifestyle and individual needs. With 20 years of experience in the clinical trenches, I personally see each patient at each visit to ensure they receive the best possible care and outcome.
Traditional braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. They're made out of metal or ceramic brackets that are attached to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics. These brackets, wires, and bands work together to apply the gentle pressure that will gradually move the teeth into the positions we want them to be in if you have regular adjustments with our doctors.
Elmhurst braces are an excellent choice for correcting complex tooth issues. Because they can sometimes work faster at aligning teeth and closing gaps than other treatments might, overall treatment time may be slightly reduced. Braces don't need some of the more complex technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can, making Elmhurst braces a cost-effective orthodontic option.
Invisalign is incredibly popular with both patients and orthodontists and is the top alternative to traditional braces. Instead of brackets and bands, Elmhurst Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and customized to fit snugly over your teeth. In order to keep your teeth moving in the direction you want them to, you'll generally need to switch your invisible trays out every 1-2 weeks for the next in the series. The Invisalign system can only work if the recommended guidelines are followed exactly! Aligners should be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment. If patients neglect to wear the aligners as directed, it can impede the results and also add time to the orthodontic process.
Invisalign is at its most efficient when correcting many of the most common orthodontic issues. For some complex cases, Invisalign may not be a good option. A free consultation with Premier Orthodontics & Dental Specialists will allow us to determine your Invisalign eligibility.
