Orthodontics in Palatine, IL
Braces certainly aren’t what they used to be (they are so much better!). We have patients of all ages coming into our Palatine, IL dental practice so that Dr. Salzberg and his team can determine whether their smiles can benefit from braces. From kids to adults, we’ve helped many people get the beautifully straight smiles they have always wanted with the help of orthodontic treatment. We provide a wide range of orthodontic services to meet your unique needs.
When Should You See an Orthodontist?
While major issues with the alignment of your teeth may have you come into our office for an evaluation, we also know that it isn’t always as obvious whether your smile could benefit from braces. It’s highly advised that kids come in for an orthodontic consultation at the age of 7, which can help us identify and correct issues early on.
Of course, if you didn’t get braces as a kid this doesn’t mean you’re out of luck. Dr. Salzberg also works with older teens and adults to help them get the smiles they want through orthodontic treatment. Here are some signs that you may want to bring yourself or your child in for a consultation,
- You have gaps between your teeth
- You have crowded teeth
- You have an overbite, underbite, crossbite, or open bite
- You experience jaw pain and trouble chewing
- You have protruding teeth
- Your self-esteem is impacted by your smile
What Orthodontic Treatments Do We Offer?
We understand that everyone that comes through our doors has ideas on how they want their orthodontic treatment to go. Some children want to correct serious misalignment issues while we also have adults who are simply looking to close the gap in their front teeth. Dr. Salzberg and his team can treat all these issues and more. Some of the orthodontic options we offer to include,
Traditional braces: These are still one of the most cost-effective and most efficient ways to correct dental misalignments, particularly in more serious and complex cases
Clear braces: These braces function and look just like traditional braces but instead of metal brackets we bond ceramic brackets to the front of you or your child’s teeth, so they are less visible when smiling
Invisalign: These clear, removable aligners provide a nearly invisible way to straighten your smile and it’s a great option for older teens and adults looking to correct more minor to moderate alignment issues
A beautiful smile is always something worth investing in. If you, your child, or your teen is interested in getting braces, contact the orthodontic team here at Herman Salzberg, DMD. To schedule a consultation, call (847) 359-6766 today.
