Gaps in teeth and hard-to-reach areas created by misalignment can create an unhealthy oral environment. Orthodontics can help prevent serious issues such as periodontal disease and tooth decay while achieving a properly aligned and aesthetically pleasing smile. Dr. Yamen Akhras provides orthodontics for patients at his practice in Orland Park, IL, and will prepare you with all you need to know about at-home care, follow-up visits, and when treatment should be completed.
Orthodontics can improve the aesthetics of your smile as well as benefit current and lasting oral health.
Treatment with orthodontics can dramatically improve the appearance of patients' smiles and reduce feelings of self-consciousness. Additionally, orthodontics correct health problems caused by tooth misalignment, which can be detrimental later in life.
Patients are typically recommended for orthodontics in their early adulthood, but can also pursue treatment later in life.
A wide variety of orthodontic issues can be addressed with both traditional braces and Invisalign®, giving patients the option to choose the treatment that best fits their dental needs.
Be sure to discuss your specific dental needs and goals with Dr. Akhras during your consultation.
