Orthodontics in Des Plaines
For most patients, straight teeth equal a beautiful smile. But did you know that a properly aligned bite is also healthier? Overlapped, crooked, or rotated teeth create a daily cleaning challenge. Helping even a couple straggling teeth find their proper place can leave you with a healthier mouth.
Straight teeth aren't just for kids! Adults often make the most dedicated orthodontic patients, and it's never too late to discuss the options for a bright, straight smile. If you're not sure traditional braces are for you, don't worry. Invisible methods can work extremely well in many cases, and Dr. Saima Sheikh can help you explore the possibilities.
Orthodontics involves teeth straightening while maintaining proper jaw alignment, combining beauty and function. Identifying problems when a child is growing may allow for easier treatment, but it's never too late to discuss ways to enhance your smile!
A straight smile has never been easier to achieve. Clear plastic trays, known as aligners, can work the magic of braces without the metal look and feel of traditional braces. Combined with sophisticated 3D software, this technology brings a new smile within reach for most adults and mature teens.
