Here at Jacobson & Tsou Orthodontics, we treat patients of all ages so that children, teens, and adults alike can enjoy healthy, beautiful smiles. We believe that it is never too late to talk to your Vernon Hills and Chicago orthodontist about treatment with Invisalign or one of the various other types of braces we offer.
Having straighter teeth can give you great confidence. Correcting a misaligned bite (or malocclusion) can improve the health of your teeth and gums as well as enhance the natural aesthetics of your smile. Whatever your specific dental and oral goals, the talented orthodontists at our Chicago and Vernon Hills practice can help you achieve them.
Improve Your Quality of Life
Ignoring malocclusions can have serious consequences on your oral health. Conversely, orthodontic treatment can help prevent negative outcomes such as:
· Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
· Loss of bone and gum tissue
· Irregular wear on tooth enamel
· Serious tooth decay
· Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain or dysfunction
Appropriate orthodontic treatment at the right time can reduce your chance of experiencing any of these dental/oral issues, and keep any existing problems from worsening too.
Some Things to Know
Braces require anywhere between six and twenty-four months to show their full effect. (It all depends on the amount of work necessary to shift your smile into the correct position.) A period of retention, which utilizes retainers, is typically required once braces have been removed.
Throughout the treatment process, patients will need to be periodically seen by their Vernon Hills or Chicago orthodontist for necessary adjustments.
Different orthodontic issues may be most effectively treated with traditional metal braces, but our other, more aesthetic forms of treatment are also an option, for example ceramic braces and the clear aligners of Invisalign. An evaluation done by your orthodontist will help you determine which orthodontic system will be most beneficial to you.
