Orthodontic Appliances

Orthodontic treatment works with appliances made of metal, ceramic, or plastic and may be either removable aligners or traditional brackets bound to your teeth.

Whatever approach is taken, the duration of your treatment will depend on a number of factors and can last from one to three years. The variables determining the length of your treatment include things such as your age, how minor or severe your dental situation is, as well as the treatment method that is used.

When you come to Oakbrook Orthodontics, we will work with you and give you all of your options to find the treatment option that is best for you.

Oakbrook Orthodontic Services

At Oakbrook Orthodontics we use today’s most modern technology to help enhance your smile. We are here to help you find the treatment plan that works best for you and your dental situation.


Invisalign® is one of our most popular treatments among both teens and adults as an alternative to traditional metal braces.

Though both will help straighten your teeth, many see Invisalign’s benefits as more appealing than traditional braces. The positives include your overall personal comfort, being able to take out the aligners so there are no food or drink restrictions, and not having to worry about tightening your wires or fixing loose brackets.

Invisalign® uses 3D computer imaging to create your individual aligners and has been proven to provide great results. If you choose this option, Dr. Neal will help determine the right treatment process, including duration and the number of different aligners you will need.


Providing mouthguards is another treatment option provided at Oakbrook Orthodontics. Whether they’re wearing braces or not, mouthguards play an important role in protecting your child’s teeth when they’re playing sports, especially contact sports.

Sports such as football, hockey, soccer, and lacrosse, to name just a few, can all lead to serious mouth injuries and you want to make sure your child is adequately protected.

Types of mouthguards include pre-made, boil-and-bite, and custom-made. Pre-made and boil-and-bite guards can be purchased at sporting goods stores. However, a custom-made guard is highly recommended, and is by far the better option for both comfort and protection, especially if your child is wearing braces.

Whatever type is used, a mouthguard should be tear-resistant, comfortable, and easy to clean.

Other Orthodontic Treatment Options

In addition to Invisalign® and mouthguards, our other orthodontic treatments include the following.
