Why Choose Grand Dental - Naperville for Orthodontics?

Phase 1 Orthodontics

Early orthodontic treatment (also called Phase One) normally begins around age eight or nine (Phase 2 starts at around age 11 or sometimes older). The purpose of early treatment is to correct jaw growth and bite alignment problems, such as overbite. It also creates room for the adult teeth to properly emerge from the gumline, reducing the risk of needing extractions down the road.

How to Tell if Your Child May Need Early Orthodontic Treatment:

What Causes Orthodontic Problems and How Will Early Treatment Benefit My Child?

Many orthodontic issues (like overcrowded teeth, large gaps between the teeth, protruding teeth, and uneven bites) are inherited or the result of early or late loss of primary teeth, injury to the mouth, or a thumb-sucking habit.

According to the American Association of Orthodontists, a child should first visit an orthodontist by the time they’re seven years old. Kids have a mix of baby and adult teeth at this age, allowing the orthodontist to detect problems in their beginning stages. During this appointment, our team will examine your child’s smile and capture a panoramic X-ray. From there, we can recommend the best ways to care for their smile now as well as in the future.

Adult Orthodontics

Orthodontic treatment isn’t just for kids and teens. The American Association of Orthodontists has actually stated that one out of every five orthodontic patients is age 21 or older. Many adults are taking proactive steps to making their smile healthier and more confident. These days, you have plenty of options to help you do that.

Treatment Options for Adults

Why should you consider orthodontic treatment?

Invisalign ®

Invisalign is an increasingly popular orthodontic solution that uses clear aligners to gradually shift your teeth into their desired positions. Depending on the severity of your orthodontic issues, the average treatment time with Invisalign is 9 to 24 months. To finish your treatment quickly, you must wear the trays for at least 22 hours a day, only removing them to eat, drink, or clean your teeth.

Metal Braces

This traditional orthodontic solution may be ideal for patients with significant crowding and misalignment. A bracket is placed on the front of each tooth, and a thin metal wire is threaded through each of these brackets to gently reposition the teeth. This option can be beneficial for kids, teens, and adults alike.

Tooth-Colored Braces

Instead of noticeable metal, tooth-colored braces are made from clear ceramic or plastic materials. The treatment is identical to traditional braces, but more discreet. Many patients choose this option because it provides all of the effectiveness of braces while maintaining a more natural, professional image.

Expanders

An “expander” refers to a variety of orthodontic appliances, all of which are designed to modify the shape and size of the mouth or maintain space. Depending on the patient’s needs, these devices can be either fixed or removable. Expanders exert a gentle force to shift the mouth as necessary to create an evenly spaced and properly aligned bite.
