Misaligned, crooked, or crowded teeth can impact your appearance and even affect your oral health.
These issues can be effectively handled with braces. When they are not, these problems can result in tooth decay, gum disease, and more.
At Premier Dental & Implant Center in Orland Park, IL, we offer various braces options at affordable rates.
We Offer Several Straightening Options
Traditional braces gradually straighten teeth through the use of brackets and wires made out of metal. Bands around the molars and elastic o-rings at the front of each tooth hold the wire in place. While metal braces are highly visible, they work faster than the ceramic option and can be used for more complex cases than aligners.
Ceramic braces are similar to traditional braces, but they use ceramic for the brackets instead of metal. Ceramic braces are less noticeable than traditional braces and work faster than clear aligners like Invisalign®. However, they are more costly than the traditional option and more visible than Invisalign.
Invisalign is an immensely popular straightening solution for patients who want discreet orthodontics treatment. Invisalign achieves results through the use of virtually invisible clear aligners. These aligners can be removed to make eating and oral hygiene easy. They also avoid bracket and wire breakage. However, Invisalign may not be able to solve complex cases.
Braces Can Boost Several Areas of Your Life
All types of misalignment can negatively impact basic, necessary daily functions like eating, speaking, brushing, and flossing.
Misaligned teeth are much harder to properly clean than straight teeth. This can lead to various troubling issues like cavities and gum disease.
Misaligned bites can also cause noticeable damage to your teeth. Straightening your smile vastly improves aesthetics.
A straight, symmetrical smile can provide a more positive self-image and eliminate insecurities about your appearance.
Our Outstanding Orthodontics Results
We Have Truly Skilled Dentists
Dr. Amer Shammaa
Our Orland Park, IL, team includes five dentists who each specialize in their own area of expertise. Our orthodontist is Dr. Amer Shammaa. General dentists can place braces or provide Invisalign, but they do not have the years of additional orthodontics training that a true orthodontist like Dr. Shammaa underwent.
Dr. Shammaa earned a Master of Science degree in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics from West Virginia University. He has since dedicated his career to resolving our patients' misalignment issues. In doing so, he has heightened his ability to take care of everything from minor cases to severe jaw misalignment.
Orland Park Relies On Us Reach Out to Receive Elite, Affordable Care
Our orthodontist, Dr. Shammaa, gets the most out of his orthodontic treatments thanks to the advanced technology that Premier Dental & Implant Center has invested in. He uses cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging to obtain precise, 3D imagery of your teeth and surrounding structures. This allows him to carry out incredibly accurate treatment.
Some potential patients get the impression that an elite dental team that uses state-of-the-art technology may provide stuffy, impersonal care. That is certainly not the case. Patients love our dentists and staff because of our family-friendly environment and easygoing demeanors. Plus, we offer free consultations for orthodontics. Reach out to receive yours.
