Our Orthodontic Services
At Carol Stream & Elgin Dental Associates, we understand that no two patients are alike. With that in mind, we offer a wide range of orthodontic options, and our team will recommend the approach that’s best suited to your specific needs. Depending on your condition and treatment goals, our orthodontists may recommend:
- Braces or advanced braces – We proudly use industry-leading technology such as the Damon System, which features an innovative self-ligating bracket design. You can choose between metal and ceramic options.
- Temporary anchorage devices (TADs) – We can temporarily place tiny screws in the bone surrounding your teeth to provide extra anchorage for your braces.
- ClearCorrect® – If you’re looking for a more discreet alternative to traditional braces, we may be able to use these clear plastic aligners to help straighten your teeth.
When Should Your Child See an Orthodontist?
Parents are often curious about when they should bring their child in for their first pediatric orthodontist appointment. The answer will vary from one child to another depending on the condition of their teeth, and our team can provide you with personalized recommendations. With that said, the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) generally recommends that children see an orthodontist by the time they turn 7.
