Downers Grover, IL, Orthodontist Answers: Who Is A Candidate For Orthodontic Treatment?

Retainers, braces, and other orthodontic appliances are an effective way to improve the health, function, stability, and appearance of the teeth. Orthodontic treatment is typically recommended by our Downers Grove, IL, orthodontist for patients who have crooked or protruding teeth, improper jaw alignment, or facial asymmetry that causes jaw pain and difficulty chewing. Orthodontic appliances can even be used to help prevent nighttime teeth grinding, sleep apnea, and snoring.

The best time to start braces or orthodontic treatment is during childhood or early adolescence. During this time, the mouth and head are still growing, which makes the teeth and jaw more receptive to repositioning. Clear aligners and other less visible orthodontic appliances, however, have made orthodontic treatment increasingly popular among adults.

While braces are perhaps the most common type of orthodontic appliance, other options are available based on the patient’s needs, including:

  • retainers
  • mouth guards
  • space maintainers
  • palatal expanders
  • clear aligners
