Orthodontic braces come in many shapes and styles. At Bolingbrook Dental Care, our dentists, Dr. Rani Seeth, Dr. Prabha Singh and Dr. Manju Suresh, evaluate children, teens and yes, adults in the Bolingbrook, IL, area for orthodontia to improve smile aesthetics, oral function and dental health.
Your teeth, gums and jaw
They work together to create your facial appearance and allow you to speak, bite and chew. Regrettably, some people have crooked, gapped smiles, poor dental bite (malocclusion) and misaligned jaws that impact the health of their teeth and gums.
That's where braces come in. The American Association of Orthodontists says the optimal age for orthodontic correction is when the jaw and supporting tissue is most pliable--between ages seven and 14.
However, even adults can pursue well-aligned, attractive smiles with our talented team in Bolingbrook. We offer all kinds of modern braces, including metal, ceramic and lingual (tongue-side) braces. Plus, we cater to our very young patients with space maintainers and palatal expanders which leverage the fluidity of their jaws.
Problems treated by braces
Your evaluation at Bolingbrook Dental Care will pinpoint your smile alignment issues. Your dentist will customize a treatment plan to create the perfect--and perfectly healthy--smile.
Straight teeth really are easier to brush and floss, harboring far less plaque and tartar and avoiding tooth decay and gum disease. Also, proper dental bite and jaw function help eliminate the ear pain, migraine headaches, teeth clenching and enamel wear which result from crooked smiles. Even sleep apnea may improve when you correct dental alignment.
Also, treatment with dental braces avoids:
- Mouth trauma from a fall or sports injury (protruding front teeth put you at risk for oral lacerations and tooth fracture)
- Enamel chipping
- Speech problems
- Inability to close the lips completely
- Facial asymmetry
- Poor biting and chewing
