Dental braces are the most familiar form of orthodontic treatment to most residents in the Bartlett, IL area. Used for rehabilitating crooked teeth, or adjusting the bite of a patient, braces are bonded directly to the teeth and are normally worn from several months to several years, depending of how much correction is needed. A small amount of force is applied to the teeth, which shifts them into the desired position, using small adjustments over a period of time.
Traditionally, orthodontic techniques are introduced in the teen or pre-teen years, however it has become more and more common for adults to undergo orthodontic treatment. Up to 30% of orthodontic patients in the U.S. are adults, and adult residents of Bartlett, IL have the option of achieving the perfect smile that they may have once believed was out of reach.
